Mr. Meir Levi, new chief Scientific Officer of ODESIA Group, and the original founder of Interfacing Technologies comments; "We are honored to be recognized in Gartner's report and are pleased to showcase the power of the EPC platform at this year's Asia Pacific Gartner Summit."
"As an emerging global player in the BPM space, we are committed to providing the highest quality of support and services to the Asia Pacific region where we have experienced great success and growth within this past year. Driven by our strategic partnerships with such regional leaders as PRIME Process Management Group (PMG), the EPC is rapidly gaining popularity amongst enterprise level organizations as they continue to recognize the intrinsic value BPM adds to their performance and competitiveness" commented Scott Armstrong, Vice President of Strategic Direction and Business Development.
Mark Khabe, Partner at Prime PMG adds; "Our clients are thrilled with the EPC solution due to its key benefits, affordability and ease of acceptance by the business user community. As the leading BPM services company in the region we have found the Interfacing EPC to be the most practical platform for our clients as they ramp up from a Visio level process documentation to a more streamlined and centralized solution. We are excited by the acquisition and ODESIA's vision to bridge the gap between process and performance by providing key decision makers with both the right data at the right time and now also the operational insight to take effective actions quickly. This is something really missing in the market and a real challenge for enterprise level organizations today."
