Joint Initiative Between LSC Group, Babcock International & UK Ministry of Defence Wins Silver Award for Excellence in BPM and Workflow

UK Ministry of Defence transforms submarine refit program with Collaborative Working Environment using TIBCO software



02 December, 2010


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) congratulates LSC Group on winning the Silver 2010 Global Award for Excellence in BPM & Workflow. Using TIBCO software, LSC Group and Babcock International developed a Collaborative Working Environment (CWE) to improve collaboration and communication between all stakeholders involved in the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD)'s submarine refit program.

Outdated paper-based processes were replaced by the latest workflow technologies, including a custom-built business process automation workflow solution. The result is a trusted, secure, web-based workspace, enabling members from disparate organizations to work together and share information within a single secure environment, with greater process integration with existing MoD and industry systems, thereby enabling greater efficiencies and cost reduction.

The 2010 Global Awards for Excellence in BPM & Workflow are given to companies who demonstrate excellence in BPM and workflow. The Awards recognize implementations that support processes extending beyond corporate boundaries to support customers, suppliers and trading parties, among others. Winners demonstrate excellence in innovation, implementation and impact.
