Punch Taverns Expands Appian Cloud BPM Program

Punch Taverns Expands Appian Cloud BPM Program 
Leading U.K. Pub Leasing Company to Present on "Realizing the Modern
Work Platform" at Appian World 2014 
RESTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/11/14 --  Appian, the market leader
in modern business process management (BPM) and Case Management
software, today announced that Punch Taverns has expanded its use of
Appian Cloud across the organization. Punch Taverns, one of the UK's
leading leased pub companies, has been running its crucial
multi-departmental and collaborative Property Investment Processes on
Appian since 2012. The success of that deployment sparked a 15-month
program to look at how process improvement could be leveraged
throughout the entire business. Punch Taverns has now deployed
subsequent Appian Cloud applications for its processes related to
Commercial Leasing and New Lessee On-Boarding, with near-term
deployments planned for contracting processes such as Short-Term
Appian's integration of process management, enterprise data
navigation, native mobility and social collaboration delivers a
single Work Platform to accelerate smarter decisions and business
actions. Kevin Dalley, Business Process and IT Director at Punch
Taverns, will present his company's journey to tap the value of a
modern Work Platform at the Appian World 2014 conference (April
30-May 2, 2014 in Washington, DC, USA). 
"Appian Cloud allows us to focus on business innovation, not IT
development and support," said Mr. Dalley. "The platform has
radically changed how we think about the relationship between
enterprise data and business process. As a result, we are finding new
and better ways to work that are having a measureable impact on our
business performance and our Partner experience." 
Punch Taverns has a portfolio of more than 4,000 pubs. The company
invests heavily in its pubs for lease, and its relationships with
lessee Partners. The company initially used Appian Cloud to
accelerate the complex processes underpinning a new property
investment (everything from marketing assessments, property planning,
and contractor selection to operational plan and financial case
development, detailed project management and launch planning). The
company's newer deployments have focused on the lessee relationship,
streamlining Partner on-boardin
g and contracting to support Punch
Taverns' goal of being the UK's most trusted and best value leased
pub company. 
The company is now using the unique Appian Records data management
capabilities as its CRM solution to centralize pub data, and is
surfacing previously-manual process events in Appian's Tempo event
stream interface for rapid awareness, knowledge and action. Making
all of that data, related collaborations, and process execution
available through Appian's native mobile apps is essential as 50
percent of the company's workforce is field-based. 
"Punch Taverns is an innovative company employing the most modern BPM
capabilities to drive business growth," said Vikki Hailey, Appian's
Regional Vice President, UK, Ireland & Channel Islands. "That is what
Appian's Work Platform is fundamentally designed to do."
