"We selected Lombardi after a competitive review because the products give us the flexibility to rapidly implement and change processes as our business requires," said Magnus Borg, CIO at Safety-Kleen Systems, Inc.

Safety-Kleen is utilizing the Lombardi process platform as its BPM standard because of the products' ability to rapidly create and iterate processes, its adherence to standards, and the rich analysis, optimization and collaboration functionality.
