Two Bizagi customers won awards at the recent Global Awards for Excellence in BPM and Workflow at BPM in Banking, Finance and Insurance conference in Oakbrook, Illinois. The event is co-sponsored by WfMC and, and is in its 20th year. Finalists were selected by a panel of judges drawn from the sponsors.

AgFirst Farm Credit Bank took the prize in the Adaptability and Agile Business Practices category.  AgFirst, part of the national Farm Credit System, streamlined its complex loans transmittal process in just 16 weeks. Through commitment to agile working methods and rapid development, AgFirst was able to start small and scale fast, delivering customised solutions of initial processes to the bank’s other financial Associations in half the time.

Generali PPF Holding provided the best evidence of System Modernization & Operational Transformation. Generali PPF Holding are part of the 6th largest insurance group. The company chose Bizagi to boost process visibility, productivity and efficiency in its Corporate Risks underwriting department. To date, 51 processes in 4 countries in 5 languages across Eastern Europe have been documented .

WfMC Executive Director and Awards judge Nathaniel Palmer stated: “The AgFirst and Generali nominations received high praise from our judging panel, and both stand out for their demonstrating of the inherent benefits available through the digitization of business processes. What is also apparent in both case studies is the unique data-driven architecture and orientation of Bizagi’s BPMS. The quantification of benefits such as component reusability and speed of deployments, as well as well-formed BPMN models and process design, were clearly articulated with each case study.”

I have been tracking Bizagi as an analyst for the last 3 years, as well as being a user of both Modeller and Studio, and what I have noticed in the last 12 months is an incredible growth in the company’s ability to support customers world-wide, whilst at the same time turning their attention to developing the products based on customer demand.
