Multi-Chem works with BP Logix to solve internal processes and help make their organization run with greater efficiency.

There is a good chance that your commute this morning was enabled, at least in part, by work done by Multi-Chem, a BP Logix customer. A global company that is a service unit of Halliburton, Multi-Chem develops and manufactures oilfield products, gas well treatments and pipeline solutions that enhance oil production. The company’s products address the chemical challenges associated with producing, processing and transporting oil and gas. A rapidly-growing company (50-70% for 10 consecutive years), Multi-Chem has a longstanding record of creating solutions relied on by some of the world’s largest and most respected energy companies.

Crestron Electronics: Innovating with the Help of BPM

By BP Logix on Feb 3, 2014 3:25:15 PM

Technology pundits have been furiously typing away over the past couple weeks trying to explain the significance of Google's $3.2 billion acquisition of Nest, a thermostat company. "It will change how we manage our lives," say the early adopters. "It will give Google knowledge of our every movement," say the detractors. Around the halls of BP Logix, we feel like we have been in the catbird’s seat as an observer, and now a participant, in this event because one of our recent customers, Crestron Electronics, has (like Google and Nest) seen the future —and is already delivering on it.

You, Me, and Them: Social BPM Engages Users

By BP Logix on Jan 24, 2014 6:10:34 PM

"Social" seems to be the buzz word, if not the implementation, in just about every enterprise application today. Some vendors have done a nice job identifying how to bring social into the realm of usability, while others seem to be delivering a lot of "check box" acknowledgement. Granted, the industry is in its early stages — with business process management vendors trying to figure out the right "formula" for integrating social with BPM.

Organizational Change and BPM, Part 1: Know Thyself (and Thy Process)

By BP Logix on Oct 28, 2013 6:02:00 PM

Smart businesspeople are always looking for ways to improve operations. "Faster is better" is often the mantra, as we humans are somewhat predisposed to looking for ways to arrive ‘there’ (wherever that may be) more quickly. In today’s technology-driven world, that means we usually default to looking at devices and software to help us get where we need to go faster than anyone else.

The proof is in the…concept

By BP Logix on Sep 21, 2012 4:07:00 PM

Our most successful customers break workflows up into small, bite-sized chunks. They introduce new, improved workflow by geographic area, or small test markets. And, they champion the first, new workflow design as a “proof of concept.” These “champions” are business stakeholders. They contact BPLogix for BPM software demos more often than IT departments. Business stakeholders need IT assistance at times, but you don’t necessarily have to drive the workflow software rollout from IT. This is because it’s the front line users who are shuffling paperwork from desktop to desktop; not IT. I heard an example of a six week approval!

BPM in the PMO

By BP Logix on Feb 2, 2011 3:23:00 PM

Traditionally, a fine line has divided process from project in the enterprise. The Project (or Portfolio) Management Office (PMO) is responsible for oversight of projects—however that is defined within that organization—while business process governance is often distributed throughout the organization, perhaps with some input from a business process improvement team.  The business process improvement group is usually organized around a set of principles, often Six Sigma or Operational Excellence, while the PMO is operated according to its own guidelines, such as a project life cycle or systems development life cycle (I'll refer to these, collectively, as SDLC). Finally, the PMO is generally responsible for efforts that cost money, while the business process improvement folks have a clear mandate to identify savings.
