OpenText (NASDAQ: OTEX) (TSX: OTC) today unveiled the winners and finalists of its 2011 GlobalStar Enterprise Awards. The awards, presented by the recently formed OpenText Business Process Solutions (BPS) Group, showcase organizations around the world dedicated to achieving real business value and competitive advantage using OpenText's business process management (BPM), business process analysis (BPA), business architecture, and case management solutions.

The two winners of the 2011 GlobalStar Enterprise Awards are:

AmerisourceBergen

As part of the competitive and complex pharmaceutical industry, AmerisourceBergen was faced with critical challenges such as maintaining high standards while managing growth, creating efficiencies, making better and faster decisions and ensuring regulatory and legal compliance. Today AmerisourceBergen has established a BPM Center of Excellence, having deployed and optimized nearly 200 processes throughout the enterprise with approximately 3,000 global users. ROI is achieved within months for each new process deployed.

The three finalists also considered for the 2011 GlobalStar Enterprise Awards are:

NASDAQ OMX

Nasdaq OMX deployed OpenText BPS solutions to administer changes to the master financial data structures used across applications, data warehouses and transactional systems within the company. Before OpenText BPS all changes were proposed, approved and completed manually via email and spreadsheets, which was time intensive and error-prone and without an audit trail. With OpenText BPS multiple users across the organization can propose new values and the BPM solutions data quality and efficiency across each process while maintaining Sarbanes-Oxley compliance with a full audit trail of the request and approvals.

Channel 4 Television

Channel 4 Television leveraged OpenText BPS for an industry-leading eCommissioning solution. Named "The Producer's Portal", it is core to Channel 4's online strategy for bringing its suppliers into the commissioning process. The solution fosters a more open and transparent working relationship and all commissioning supplier interactions occur within one coherent area, strengthening the channel's brand. This reduces confusion, frustration and encourages the production companies to work more closely with Channel 4.

PSCU Financial Services

PSCU Financial Services was looking to enhance their internal customer experience and for the 600 plus financial institutions it supports by creating service efficiencies through reducing phone calls, faxes and time spent resolving service issues. The OpenText BPS solution enables a seamless execution of service requests, complete with the successful transfer of data from disparate sources, tracking of requests, and paperless process automation. The combined value of the improvements made in service have resulted in increased customer retention and acquisition and differentiate PSCU Financial Services from its competitors.
