Thanks to a generous in-kind gift, worth $375,000 from Cincinnati-based Bluespring Software, students in the University of Cincinnati College of Business (UCCB) can apply their knowledge with a cutting edge software program.
Business Process Management Software (BPMS), presented to UCCB by Bluespring, is a progressive technology that allows businesses to model, implement and monitor the process of aligning with the wants and needs of their clients.
BPMS will be available in all UCCB labs and brought into the Information Systems department's curriculum.
“We are grateful to Bluespring for this generous gift,” said Information Systems department head, Associate Professor Vivek Choudhury. “Having Bluespring’s state-of-the-art BPM software as an integral part of our courses will serve as an important differentiator for our programs and our students.”
The inclusion of this technology in the IS curriculum gives UCCB students the chance to do work that real world professionals are engaged in, giving them a good dose of real world problem solving experience, in the classroom.
BPMS is a significant leap forward for companies solving complex problems in an quick, automated fashion, which were once relegated to hand-drawn diagrams on meeting room walls followed by a gradual process of action.
“We are honored that UC’s College of Business has chosen to partner with Bluespring Software as the software provider for new class curriculum in Business Process Management,” says President and COO of Bluespring, Blaine Clark.
