BPM Maturity and Readiness Assessment​

We help companies evaluate their maturity level as well as their readiness to change and adopt a performance-oriented culture, based on a business management’s process. Together we will design a successful BPM adoption program by addressing a few critical success factors.

After a BPM Readiness Assessment, we help companies select the technology that best fits their needs and also engages in one of the possible and different business models, consequently  helping the company successfully achieve its BPM goals.

A BPM CoE will play an important role in helping the company design and establish a long-term vision and methodical approach to implement BPM initiatives and practices such as: process governance best practices; continuous improvement culture and practices; establishment of standards and optimization of resources.

Most companies have different internal systems where parts of their processes are implemented and/or where specific data is managed (ex: HR data). BPM platforms orchestrate and implement the company’s processes in order to integrate with third party systems. We offer extensive knowledge and experience in these third-party integrations.​

By analyzing and mining the process execution data, we help companies identifying areas and processes that are candidates to (re)engineering and improvement hence eliminating their constraints and bottlenecks, thus contributing to a continuous improvement strategy based on real life data.

LBC is able to provide resources with know-how and experience in supporting and maintain BPM implementations within companies that do not have such resources.

Most BPM platforms provide out-of-the-box impressive features and capabilities. However, in real life, companies very often need to adapt and customize these platforms and developments to very specific needs. LBC provides experienced full stack developers that help with these specific needs and customizations.

Why is Nearshoring growing in Portugal?

Nearshore services have increased over time in Portugal, and we are here to explain why. IT Nearshore in Portugal is on the rise and the pandemic Covid-19 didn’t slow it down.

Asked Questions

LBC, based in Portugal, provides services in onshoring, nearshoring, and offshoring to the Portuguese, European, and North American markets.

Nearshore refers to outsourcing to clients located in close proximity in terms of time zones, such as Germany.

Offshore refers to outsourcing to clients with considerable time zone differences, such as California.

Onshore refers to outsourcing to service providers located in Portugal.

The comparative advantages of each relate to criteria of cost savings, time savings, convenience, efficient communication.

LBC optimizes these criteria for the Portuguese, European, and North American markets, with competitive prices for a high quality of delivery, proficient English communication (plus French, Spanish and German), time-zone convenience, cultural alignment, legal responsibility, and IP Protection (registered in Europe and in California).

In some cases, we can bundle our services to make the best of different solutions, as in the case of a US client for whom we provided project management of a development team chosen by the client located in India. The Indian team developed code, LBC managed and revised the work, and then engaged with the US client, making the most out of time zone differences and relative unit costs to maximize results.

Portugal also offers specialized professionals with a high degree of adaptability across all sectors at highly competitive costs and supported by the excellence of its infrastructures. In the past 10 years, a wide range of global digital companies have set up internal nearshore hubs in Portugal and Portuguese service providers have been substantially increasing their services to the international market.LBC recruits its staff at the top universities such as Nova and Católica for management and Instituto Superior Técnico, Nova, and Minho for software development. LBC has been considered at the top of “best company to work” in all the years it competed (1st, 2nd and 3rd place in its category).

Cost Optimization and Resource Management are the more easily measurable advantages, yet you also benefit from educated feedback during the development process, a diverse set of new opinions and ideas on your projects, and similar legal procedures regarding IP protection.

We exist to support you in this journey, as a trusted and personalized consultant capable of strong execution. You can count on us to lead your next project with an innovative vision and ongoing communication, so you can always know what is happening at every point and specify every adjustment you deem necessary.  Our client’s satisfaction is always our top priority, and we are proud to have an extensive record of success stories from our previous partners.

LBC is always looking for new talent to help us serve our clients with the best possible product.

We strive to learn and evolve with every project, and we welcome everyone that can help us move forward!
