The last few months have been a whirlwind for us at Process StreamTM. It seems like we just announced an award – our selection as one of the top 100 places to work in New Jersey by NJBIZ, which recognized the quality workplace and corporate culture we’ve put together for our team – and here we are today announcing another.
For the second year in a row, Process StreamTM has been recognized by technology magazine CIO Review as one of 2015’s 20 Most Promising Pharma and Life Science Consulting Providers. And what’s behind that fancy name? Well, it means that we’re one of the best vendors and consultants offering technology services to the pharma and life science industries. It means we’ve demonstrated profound expertise in both the software and processes we work with and in understanding the business goals of our clients. It means we’ve developed and implemented innovative plans.
But what it really means is that we’re great at what we do. You can check it all out in the March issue of CIO Review, which our executive team sat down and interviewed for. We talk about what we do, how we do it, and where we see Process StreamTM going. What we really try to do is act as a propeller for pharma and life sciences businesses – to help them meet their goals by giving them the tools they need to do it. We’re all about efficiency, about strengthening operations, and about freeing up resources so that they can be used where they’re most needed – and we’ve worked to build the expert team that can do that well. It’s our primary focus. You could say it’s our vision.
Everyone here is humbled at this recognition. We never set out to win awards; we just wanted to do good work. Teddy Roosevelt once said “‘Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is a chance to work hard at work worth doing.” That should be inscribed in every office and every workshop, on the entrance to every place of business. We do what we do because it’s worth doing, and anything worth doing is worth doing well.
We couldn’t be more pleased to learn that we’ve succeeded. But that doesn’t mean we’re done.
The headline isn’t that we’re the best, just that we’re one of the most promising. Think about what it means to have promise. To talk about promise is to talk about the future, about something unfulfilled, about potential. We have a future ahead of us, where everything that Process StreamTM has already accomplished is just the beginning. It means that we’ve got more work ahead of us.
And you know what?
I wouldn’t want it to mean anything else.
