Open Systems Technologies Selects Compuware Changepoint for Professional Services Automation: Compuware Corp. announced Wednesday that Open Systems Technologies has selected Compuware Changepoint’s professional services automation system to manage its growing services organization. Founded in 1997 and located in Grand Rapids, Open Systems Technologies provides information technology and business process services for the health care, manufacturing and distribution, finance, insurance and enterprise technology services sectors. To support its future growth plans, achieve revenue and profitability targets, OST realized the need to streamline its business processes and more effectively manage the projects and service engagements entrusted to its growing services team. The company set out a plan to migrate away from its current homegrown time- and expense-tracking system toward a more robust, out of the box professional services automation system. After careful consideration of several market options, including Compuware Changepoint, Tenrox and Netsuite’s OpenAir, OST selected Changepoint.  With revenue of $68 million a year, OST focuses on providing IT infrastructure services and products for over 15 years; in addition, OST offers security services, custom application development services, managed services, and business process services.
