Lombardi's reseller in Brazil, WG Systems, will help FIT design, deliver and support the Teamworks processes. FIT Residencial is a fully owned subsidiary of Gafisa, one of Brazil's diversified national homebuilders.

In specific, FIT is using Teamworks to automate and manage two core processes. The first is the process used to identify and acquire the land FIT uses for its buildings. The second is the process that takes a piece of land already in the FIT land bank and manages all the legal, financial and commercial steps required before a building or collection of buildings can be released for sale into the general real estate market.

"We selected Teamworks because our company is growing very fast and we needed a BPM platform to ensure that our processes can keep up with our growth - both today and in the future," said Fábio Urushibata, IT Manager at FIT Residencial, in a statement. "We were especially impressed with the product's analysis and monitoring features that provides our managers with easy-to-use dashboards that give them a transparent view of the business at any time they need it."

The FIT Residencial will use Teamworks to manage a range of key real estate processes: land identification, financial viability study, project planning, licenses acquisition, financing, and presales preparation.

Marcelo Rosenburg, a partner inWG Systems, said the combination of Lombardi's BPM product along with its extensive sales, marketing and professional services expertise is helping Brazilian companies manage and improve their critical business processes."Teamworks offers FIT Residencial a BPM platform that manages their critical land development and management processes today, as well as scales with them as their business grows," he said in the statement.
