Vaughn Thurman, HighGear’s CEO, was recently featured in November’s CIOReview Magazine. The article discusses how HighGear (formerly known as HighGear) delivers true Lean BPM, incorporating task management and workflow processes into one rapidly deployable solution with proven ROI.

We are excited to see the industry starting to recognize the concept of “Lean BPM,” which we’ve been talking about for several years. Business process management has been a powerful tool for large enterprises for two decades, but the high cost and long implementation time of traditional solutions has prevented most organizations from taking advantage of these opportunities. Business and IT executives are looking for the promised agility and power of BPM software, but with the practical execution strengths of a web-based task management system. They need cost-effective solutions that will be adopted quickly and can keep up with changing business needs.

Delivering Workflow Automation

HighGear is the first solution that offers the power and flexibility of BPM in a package lean enough for normal businesses to use. HighGear delivers true Lean BPM, incorporating task management and workflow processes into one rapidly deployable solution with proven ROI. The streamlined administration tools allow semi-technical business analysts to quickly create and modify workflows. And supervisors and workers can effectively delegate, coordinate and analyze their work in real time.

HighGear can be run in the cloud or on-premise. Robust web APIs and embedded interface hooks allow work to flow smoothly between integrated systems. And deep security provides total confidence in data protection.

Improving Performance

For a better understanding of HighGear, see this case study about a major insurance carrier that used HighGear to build a new platform to track and manage requests. HighGear fit in perfectly as an integrated System of Assignment, and the client observed a 30% improvement in productivity as well as greatly increased visibility.
