With CMMIxs, More “Extra-Small” Firms Can Achieve CMMI Ratings Affordably
Waterford, MI (July 31, 2015) – Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword), a performance innovation company, announced today that it has expanded the availability of CMMIxs (www.cmmixs.com), a subscription-based product designed to enable the adoption of CMMI for small business contractors, specifically emerging or “extra-small” IT and engineering firms looking to compete for large federal government contracts that require or recommend a Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) rating.
For the small business, a CMMI rating provides a competitive advantage even outside of government contracts. It serves as a strong indicator of the quality of services of a business. It also helps establish a better position for merger or acquisition, takes advantage of a tie-breaker, and contributes to gaining more commercial business in the future. By expanding the program, Broadsword is enabling more companies with under 25 employees to bid on federal contracts that require CMMI maturity levels for small business contractors interested in reaching new markets.
“We recognize that extra small businesses (those with fewer than 25 people) have different dynamics than larger companies, as well as more restrictive budgets,” said Broadsword’s president, Jeff Dalton. “With CMMIxs, achieving a CMMI maturity levels for the small business is no longer out of reach.”
Broadsword is celebrating its 10-Year Anniversary by expanding its ability to drive high-performance engineering to more companies, using its AgileCMMI methodology in collaborative consulting, coaching and training solutions, including the Agile Resiliency Architecture (ARA), Multi-Model Improvement (MMI), and its newly expanded Agile Transformation offering. With the expansion of CMMIxs, Broadsword is able to impact more of a previously under-served segment of the industry.
“We were looking for lower cost, more flexible solution to achieve a Maturity Level 2 rating,” said Chuck Evanhoe, President of Evanhoe & Associates, “and that was accomplished with CMMIxs. There were no additional cost incurred by having consultants come out, and we were able to find times to work together via WebEx that were mutually agreeable. Overall, our experience was very, very good.”
Built around virtual tools and flexible timing, CMMIxs is now available to more extra-small firms on-demand whenever they need it. Qualifying companies can take advantage of video and webinar technology, online collaboration tools, and Broadsword’s proprietary CMMI Accelerator Tool Kit to get them started with CMMI success.
