Portside partners with Asamco to streamline organization-wide processes with Bizagi Engine

Portside, the trusted ship agency and logistics partner for West Africa, has selected Bizagi BPMS to increase the efficiency of its core operational and financial processes.

London, UK – September 22nd, 2015

Portside partners with Asamco to streamline organization-wide processes with Bizagi

The project comes as part of a move to increase internal operating procedures in line with expansion. It is an element of an ambitious one-year plan targeting two continents, four countries and twelve companies.

Sabine Trabys, Group CFO of Portside, explains:

"As a multi-site business with dispersed colleagues, we needed a simple system that could support the needs of our staff while reducing the burden in the back office. We chose Bizagi because it looked easy to use and customize."

The project will be executed via a partnership with Asamco BV, to oversee the transition from modeling to implementation. Trabys has hands-on experience of Bizagi Modeler and was impressed with what she found.

"I have been in the business of process improvement for over 20 years and the Bizagi platform is a vast improvement on the tools I’ve used in the past. Creating diagrams is very quick - I managed to model the whole company in three weeks.”

Alexander Toufexis, director of Asamco, says

"I was strongly impressed with the speed that an IT user is able to setup the various processes within Bizagi, requiring only limited programming knowledge."

The pilot project will target Portside’s IOU process whereby staff cash advances are verified, issued and approved. The BPM process will eliminate the need for physical rekeying and hard copy forms for companies across the group in Ghana and the Ivory Coast.

Following the current testing/evaluation phase, Portside plans to roll out up to 200 multi-language processes from its base in the Netherlands.

"Portside is an outstanding example of a growing company with enterprise vision,” says Bizagi CEO Gustavo Gomez. “In just a few months, Sabine and her team have modeled complete organizational processes without help. And now they can count on Bizagi’s full support to grow their technical understanding of our BPM platform and deliver the benefits they expect."
