The increased operating efficiency will continue to drive up the company's revenue per employee while providing a tight scalable process across many better aligned company functions,” said Mike Vollmar, CEO of Raydon.

Raydon worked with Broadsword Solutions Corporation (Broadsword) to apply its agileCMMI Methodology to streamline the CMMI appraisal process, making the process more useful and efficient. The partnership enabled Raydon to add more rigor and measurements to its processes, in support of making better decisions and better serving its clients.
