Workflow Director Paves the Way for Business Improvement Initiatives
SAN DIEGO--(Business Wire)--
BP Logix, a provider of web-based business process automation and reporting
solutions, today announced that TLT-Babcock selected BP Logix Workflow Director
to further automate and improve its business processes. As part of the company`s
aggressive business improvement initiatives, TLT-Babcock selected Workflow
Director to support Engineering, Human Resources, Project Management,
Purchasing, Quality Assurance, Accounting and Logistics workflow and automation
requirements. In addition, the product provides document control and electronic
forms - and integrates with TLT-Babcock`s existing ERP system supporting
hundreds of users across multiple locations. 

Since 1975, TLT-Babcock has provided heavy duty air and material handling
equipment for thousands of critical installations across many industries. Its
primary customers range from utility power plants to heavy industrial
manufacturing installations including cement plants, steel mills, pulp and paper
mills, mining, and subway and tunnel applications. A subsidiary of the New York
Blower Company, TLT-Babcock competes globally to deliver custom solutions for
air and material handling demands. TLT-Babcock`s corporate offices are located
in Fairlawn, Ohio. Manufacturing and assembly plants are located in Medina,
Ohio. 

As part of the company`s aggressive process improvement plan, one of the
mandates for Jason Woodruff, Project Manager, was to streamline existing
processes, building in more efficiency and eliminating redundant information and
errors. TLT-Babcock was also experiencing problems associated with paper
documents that were often problematic or difficult to locate, as well as
business rules and processes that needed to be reevaluated. While he initially
sought a solution to provide document control and electronic forms, Woodruff
quickly determined that automating workflows and tracking approvals offered an
even greater benefit - and was in line with the company`s philosophy of process
improvement. 

While most of TLT-Babcock`s documentation was stored in electronic files, it was
cumbersome to locate information. "The arduous process of looking at the shared
drive, in file cabinets, and sorting through emails with attachments every time
we wanted to find a document, could take hours each day to find simple answers,"
noted Woodruff. 

After evaluating both BPM suites and point products, Woodruff initiated a trial
of Workflow Director. He invited representatives from departments across the
company to determine if the technology would be useful in their respective
areas. Agreeing that BP Logix is well suited to address its needs, Woodruff will
be rolling out Workflow Director one department at a time, beginning with
Engineering, then following with Procurement, QA, Shipping, Sales and Project
Management. Once those departments are running, Woodruff will turn his attention
to Accounting, Human Resources and the Aftermarket Division. "We are seeing that
Workflow Director provides the capabilities we need, is not overly complex or
counter-intuitive. And with the BP Logix technology, finding the information we
need is instantaneous," commented Woodruff. 

"We are pleased that TLT-Babcock has already experienced improvements to its
business processes," stated Edward Skiko, CEO of BP Logix, Inc. "As TLT-Babcock
continues to implement Workflow Director across the company, we know that there
will be additional opportunities to automate and streamline its processes, as
well as gain additional visibility and greater control over its business," Skiko
concluded.
