Phase One Transitions from Manual to Electronic Workflows and Automated Processes
Tokyo, Japan and San Diego, CA – April 9, 2013 — AssistMicro, provider of enterprise content management (ECM) solutions to the Japanese market, and BP Logix, developer of BPM software that accelerates time-to-value, today announced that BP Logix’ flagship product, BP Director, was selected by MIC Risk Solutions (MRS). Automating and streamlining its increasingly-complex contract workflow process, and moving from a manual, paper-based system were the drivers for acquiring this system.
The joint partnership, launched in October 2010, enables AssistMicro to sell BP Logix Process Director (called BP Director in Japan) solutions to its existing network of customers and partners. It further leverages the experience of AssistMicro in ECM to deliver business process management (BPM) solutions to Japanese companies.
MIC Risk Solutions, Inc. (MRS) provides property and casualty insurance and re-insurance services, as well as broker and risk management services, to Japanese customers. A wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsui & Co., MRS will leverage the BP Logix technology to automate its contract document management process.
In making its selection, MIC Risk Solutions evaluated workflow products from a number of BPM vendors. The company selected BP Director because it offers three key benefits that are crucial to MRS's future success. Those requirements included the ability to:
- Make workflow and data reusable
- Provide the ability to view all aspects of the workflow process at a glance
- Enable end users to lead business process improvements within the company
MRS will begin automating its business processes with BP Director immediately and plans to enter its production phase in June.
According to Mr. Shuichi Yoshida, General Manager, Production Division of MRS, “The nature of MRS's business requires robust process management and precise document creation. We selected BP Logix because we believe it offers the functionality we need, as well as the flexibility to address our future business needs.”
Taro Momose, president of AssistMicro added, “As MRS expands to service the needs of its customers, BP Director will provide the framework and structure the company needs to handle that growth.” “The transition from paper-based manual processes to automated and streamlined electronic processes will enable MIC Risk Solutions to achieve dramatic time and cost savings, as well as efficiencies. We are pleased that MRS has selected BP Logix to automate its contract process,” concluded Marti Colwell, VP of Business Development for BP Logix.
