South African health care insurance provider wins by supporting customers and partners with industry-leading TIBCO BPM
PALO ALTO, Calif., March 02, 2009 - TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX), congratulates PruHealth, on winning the 2008 Gold Award in the Global Awards for Excellence in BPM & Workflow for the MEA (Middle East and Africa) region. PruHealth applied BPM software to improve the process for managing appointments with partners, tracking usage, and preparing corporate invoices in addition to automating the process for receiving, validating, reconciling, and routing electronic claims for assessment.
"This award illustrates the global value we are delivering to our customers and other stakeholders," said Paulo Dos Santos of PruHealth in accepting the award. "We've been able to drive tangible, ongoing business value from our operations, and leverage our SOA architecture to establish BPM as an enterprise program."
The award judges focused on implementations that supported business processes extending beyond corporate boundaries to assist customers, suppliers and trading partners.
"PruHealth's leadership with TIBCO infrastructure software has clearly improved and optimized its business operations. This award underscores that success," said Ram Menon, executive vice president, worldwide marketing for TIBCO. "PruHealth's award closely follows TIBCO's naming to a Leadership position in the Leaders Quadrant in Gartner's February 2009 BPMS Magic Quadrant, which we believe again demonstrates TIBCO's results-focused approach to providing multiregional BPM solutions. In tough economic times it's great to be recognized and see TIBCO's approach paying dividends for our customers in a variety of industries worldwide."
The 2008 Gold Award in Global Awards for Excellence in BPM & Workflow Program awards are sponsored by BPM Focus in association with the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC), and are given to companies who demonstrate excellence in BPM and workflow.
