Moments ago, the BPM / SOA Community of Practice announced the winners of the 2010 case study contest. The overall winner was Van Ameyde International.
The Van Ameyde Group specializes in international claims and risk management for major international insurance companies, captives and brokers, government agencies, and corporate and industrial clients including the energy sector, the shipping industry, ports and terminals.
The Van Ameyde case centered on a new claims handling system called ECHO – European Claims Handling Optimization. Read the case highlights – business scenario, ROI, project capsule, methodology and lessons learned – on the BPM / SOA Community Insights blog.
The runner-up winner was AmerisourceBergen Corporation, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical services companies serving the United States, Canada and selected global markets with a focus on the pharmaceutical supply chain. Servicing both pharmaceutical manufacturers and healthcare providers, the Company provides drug distribution and related services designed to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes.
The AmerisourceBergen case describes an enterprise-wide BPM implementation that enables processes such as contracts management and chargeback, AP vendor reconciliation, pro-generics competitive pricing and the quote to contract lifecycle. This year, as part of the company’s broader business transformation initiative, AmerisourceBergen replaced its legacy system with SAP, and used BPM to create six new processes, including PO reconciliation and variance resolution.
