Published: Mon Feb 19 2007


Atlas GOSS Limited, a provider of support services to global Outsourcing Service Providers (OSPs), has entered into a collaborative business relationship with Procession plc to significantly enhance the effectiveness of the Business Analysts role in process outsourcing and new systems development.

This Alliance is the beginning of a genuinely collaborative relationship in itself, where Atlas-GOSS has been granted the exclusive right to market, sell and overall service manage Processionís portfolio to the OSP client base.

"Procession is, for Atlas-GOSS, a real gem of a find," said Stephen Bailey, Managing Director at Atlas-GOSS.

"When the people at Sun Microsystems and Oracle begin to see what Procession has developed, they will be just as excited as we already are. For OSPs, Processionís core technology places business knowledge as the prime driver of the build phase in the systems lifecycle and it really could eliminate the need for offshore development activity."

For David Chassels, Procession Chief Executive, the collaboration with Atlas-GOSS: "Was an obvious choice for us, given the role that Stephen and his team are performing in the evolution of Outsourcing across the supply side of the Industry. For Business Process Outsourcing to be effective, OSPs have got to deliver an agile service capability to end users that fully supports todayís competitive and increasingly regulated environment.

"With Procession, this is achieved by a uniquely simple approach that is function independent and thus able to accommodate any business issue. Hence, the real target for Processionís tools is the OSPís Business Analyst who is tasked with knowing the processes inside out and improving them in a way the client was never able to.

"Through our Alliance, the OSPís ability to make a real difference to their clients business will improve massively."

Stephen Bailey sees this approach: "As another great example of why focusing on operational effectiveness will outperform the overworked efficiency initiatives in meeting and exceeding client expectations whilst also achieving a substantial reduction in the total cost of operation for OSPs."

Atlas-GOSS has ongoing relationships with the likes of EDS, HP, CSC, Unisys, Capgemini and Atos Origin. Procession becomes the second partner to join the recently launched Foundation Alliance Businesses Programme and is aligning with PAS BSi 11000 for all collaborative business relationships.
