OSSENO Software has just entered into a strategic partnership with Procept to provide consulting, systems integration, configuration, training and support services for its North American customers. The German company's flagship product is the ReqSuite® RM tool that uses cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify and speed up the process of gathering, analyzing and documenting requirements. The AI system also reduces errors, leading to higher quality and greater levels of efficiency.

According to Dr. Sebastian Adam, OSSENO's president, the company selected Procept as its North American services partner as it has "come to know [Procept] as a trustworthy and respected service provider." Procept started offering business analysis consulting services starting in 2004 and is one of the the first Chartered Endorsed Education Providers for the International Institute for Business Analysis (IIBA®) and is currently a Premier-Level EEP™. Since 2004, Procept has provided business analysis consulting and training services to government, private sector, and non-profit clients across Canada, the USA, and internationally.

Procept is a thought leader in requirements best practices, with many of its associates working at the leading edge of this field, with numerous books and conference papers presented (e.g. on agile requirements, agile documentation best practices, how the BA and PM roles can work better together, the role of a BA in agile projects, etc.) and even participation in IIBA standards development. "Procept has been a strong supporter from the time the BA profession was first formalized until the present day," says Procept president Kevin Aguanno. "Clients turn to Procept when they need expert support to tackle tough requirements management challenges. Our partnership with OSSENO Software gives us unequaled access to the developers of a leading-edge tool that uses artificial intelligence to make requirements processes more efficient. Helping our clients deploy OSSENO tools will not only drive immediate business results for them but also will help them see Procept as partners in achieving their desired business goals. The OSSENO-Procept partnership will help us build deeper value relationships with clients, fostering long-term client engagements."
