Great Coverage in the ABJ Today for BP3
“The thing with Business Process Management is that there is no finish line” – Lance Gibbs, CEO of BP3.
BP3 has been growing leaps and bounds lately. So it was a great surprise to see this article cross my twitter stream from Christopher Calnan of the Austin Business Journal, who wrote a great piece on BP3’s growth in Austin:
The Austin-based company is moving from a 6,000-square-foot office on North Mopac Expressway to the 12,000-square-foot previous home of Calxeda Inc., the semiconductor chipmaker that shuttered operations in late 2013. CEO Lance Gibbs expects BP3 Global to employ 75-90 Austin workers within two years, and 125-150 within three as the demand for process management outstrips the supply of vendors.
BP3, founded in 2007, provides business process management consulting, software implementation and process improvement initiatives. It employs 58 workers; 41 are based in Austin.
Every day when I walk into our offices it strikes me how amazing it is that just a few years ago there were five of us grinding it out through the great recession, which hit hard in one of our core customer constituencies: financial services institutions.
Lance Gibbs, our CEO, also offered a look forward:
Last year, BP3 generated revenue of $8 million and it’s projected to reach $14 million this year. It operates offices in the San Francisco Bay Area, Cleveland, Minneapolis and Atlanta.
We’re having a really good year of solid execution all the way around. Couldn’t be more proud of our team. And we’re firing on all cylinders, including product delivery in 2014.
Tomorrow, we’re hosting a webinar to Meet the Experts of Brazos Portal – a new product release that went GA just a week ago. This follows on the heels of a successful Brazos UI 3.0 release in June. Brazos Portal is another product in our portfolio that creates beautiful BPM interfaces for BPM: in this case with patent-pending technology to organize and find the work in your inbox whether you’re at your laptop or operating an iPhone. Ask our designers and developers questions live on the call!
[Editor’s note: Really just one minor correction in the article: the article listed IBM as a competitor when in fact we are partners, of course. We use IBM BPM in most of our implementation projects. ]
