Bluespring Expands Rapid Process Assessment Service

Affordable, In-Depth Business Process Analysis Delivered in Days

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Bluespring Software (Bluespring), a leading provider of Business Process Innovation (BPI) technology and solutions, today announced that the company is expanding its popular Rapid Process Assessment™ (RPA) service. Bluespring RPA provides organizations with quantitative data to make informed decisions about process improvement efforts in as few as 5 to 15 business days. Bluespring RPA is a proven, structured approach delivered by experienced process improvement specialists using Bluespring's powerful Business Process Analysis (BPA) tool -- ProcessView™. Bluespring RPA delivers visibility into current business processes, a roadmap for improvement towards specific business objectives, and a detailed business case for change. Similar engagements with most consulting companies often take months, cost much more, and still do not deliver the in-depth quantitative assessment offered by a Bluespring RPA.

"Our Bluespring RPA service is a great way for organizations to quickly identify where cost can be removed from business processes," said Ed Bauer, Bluespring President and COO. "We've already performed over 25 RPA's with excellent results. Now, with an expanded team of process improvement specialists and the newest release of ProcessView in place, we are positioned to deliver this valuable service in greater volume. We're excited to see the growing level of RPA activity -- both with direct customers, and in conjunction with partners."

Since initiating this service in late 2009, Bluespring has performed assessments across a number of industries, including healthcare, insurance, consumer goods, manufacturing, marketing services, and retail. Business processes have ranged from healthcare information management, to claims processing, sales quoting and ordering, employee on-boarding and off-boarding, print service management, production, and various accounting functions. With each engagement, Bluespring has identified savings of $100,000 to $2 million in process improvements.

Bluespring process improvement professionals bring strong backgrounds in Industrial Engineering, Lean, Six Sigma, and TQM. The RPA service begins with current-state process mapping to create the foundation. Process analysis is then performed to identify bottlenecks, as well as time and cost drivers. Future-state mapping identifies the potential improvements that best address the business objectives. Comparative analysis creates detailed cost, time, and other differentials between the current state and future state models. The resulting RPA Outbrief provides a succinct and highly visual summary of current and future processes, with clear, scientifically determined management recommendations for moving forward, including suggested process changes, how the new process will perform, and the business case for change.
