Sharing the top awards list with prestigious organizations including Paychex, Xerox, Eastman Kodak and Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield, Calero was recognized for its performance success using Lean methodology to drive significant improvements in delivering higher quality software and services at a lower cost. “We are honored to be recognized along with other world-class companies,” says Matthew Lennarz, Director of Lean Transformation for Calero. “By standardizing our processes and leveraging lean tools, we have empowered our employees to be problem solvers and continuously strive for perfection – all which helps us deliver higher value to our clients.”
