Customer spent $5K and saved $48k

Saving the customer money…Customer spent $5K and saved $48k!!!

“On a cold winter Wednesday, I joined a metal fabrication conference in the Cleveland area.  We were led to a room covered in brown; the far wall lit up by a projector.  As I unpacked my laptop, trusty notepad and pen, I was approached by a man with a jovial smile.  The feeling that I should know him welled up inside me.  After taking a second glance at my nametag, he said, “we’ve worked together, but we’ve never met face-to-face.”  He went on to tell me how years prior we collaborated on a BPM that defaulted the correct shipping address for purchase orders according to the User-ID on the PO.  “Before you built that, about once a month, these huge semi-loads would arrive at our office building, over 400 miles away from the factory.  It was extremely frustrating, but now we can laugh about it because your BPM has saved us 10’s of thousands of dollars.  It hasn’t happened since.”  He shook my hand and thanked me, as we remembered working together.  Hearing this story made me proud of what I do and where I work.”
