Roundarch's extensive business case development experience and industry-specific resources and tools, as well as background in key business sectors, including healthcare, insurance, telecommunications and government, will be valuable to the SVP program. After successfully enhancing the Solution Value Proposition program, the companies plan to explore additional opportunities for leveraging their core strengths into other business categories. BroadVision and Roundarch have already worked together in several other large-scale implementation projects for leading organizations that included the State of California, HP Shopping, Nortel and Pitney Bowes.
"Before making sound technology investments in today's economy, companies are demanding that enterprise solutions deliver greater business value directly aligned with corporate strategies," said Drew Bartkiewicz, vice president of Industry Solutions for BroadVision. "Roundarch's industry experience along with their commitment to creating profitable customer relationships, make them an ideal partner for this program."
More than 30 organizations including Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia, Primax, RS Components and Sprint -- have already taken advantage of the SVP program in the first 90 days of its availability.
The SVP program is composed of the following steps:
- Self-Service Opportunity Assessment (SSOA): An online tool for executives, allowing them to determine their readiness to take advantage of enterprise self-service technologies.
- Executive Briefing Workshop: The second step helps executive teams to better understand the results of the SSOA and assess which key business processes can be transformed to a self-service model.
- Business Case Analysis (BCA): The BCA helps e-business teams to develop a more in-depth rationale and help them communicate the business value of investing in a BroadVision solution throughout the organization.
"BroadVision's Solution Value Proposition program allows clients to make educated e-business decisions based on business value. With our extensive consulting experience in various industries, this joint effort with BroadVision creates a formidable team in helping customers define and commit to a business value proposition," said Don Giudice, Enterprise Portal Solutions Offer Director for Roundarch. "We are very much looking forward to the exciting new business opportunities that will result from this joint endeavor."
Roundarch was formed by Deloitte Consulting, BroadVision, and WPP Group and provides customer relationship architecture that combines strategy, marketing, creative and technology professionals with formalized assets.
