Numbers posted today by Lombardi Software Inc show signs of a markedly robust business process management market, with the sector leader virtually doubling its sales during 2008 as increasing numbers of organisations work to pare back operational inefficiencies.
“The key issue for companies today is simple to state, but hard to do – they need to lose fat while building muscle. Lombardi helps our customers do both,” said Lombardi president Phil Gilbert, as he reported that the company achieved 47% software sales growth compared to the same period in 2007.
Outlining the fiscal year ended December 31 2008, the company said it had seen good demand from financial services, manufacturing and energy companies, and confirmed it also saw healthy interest for its products and services in the US Federal Government during 2008.
The Austin Texas-based software-maker sells the Lombardi Teamworks BPMS, and also has an ‘on-demand’ process-documentation tool known as Blueprint, that is used to map an organisation’s business processes.
