QPR Suite 2012

Last Updated: 11th March, 2013

QPR Suite 2012 consists of a bundle of 4 QPR products:

  • QPR ProcessAnalyzer
  • QPR EnterpriseArchitect
  • QPR ProcessDesigner
  • QPR Metrics

Using data stored in operative business systems, QPR ProcessAnalyzer re-creates processes exactly as they occur in reality. It is cloud-based and users can connect to virtually any cloud-based or on-premise system. There are also special versions that work with SAP and salesforce.com.

QPR EnterpriseArchitect provides a design environment that covers business processes, business architecture, applications, data and systems. It has an open metamodel that supports any standard and framework (TOGAF, Zachman, ArchiMate, UML, IDEF, BPMN) as well as customised approaches. Procedural, policy and training documentation, message specifications (e.g. EDIFACT) or any other content stored on local networks, document management systems or the web can be linked with diagram, catalog or matrix objects and made available. Users can report, share and publish information in various formats and tools (Dynamic HTML, PDF, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint).

QPR Processdesigner offers support for multiple process-oriented management initiatives and methods, such as quality management (ISO9000, LEAN, Six Sigma, EFQM), regulatory compliance (SOX, Basel II, Solvency II), Business Process Analysis and Business Activity Monitoring. It captures process information as a database model, rather than a collection of diagrams.

The process model described with QPR ProcessDesigner is automatically published in dynamic HTML format to the QPR Portal. From there information can be published by users to Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint, as well as PDF, XML, XAML and ebXML formats. The execution of web form-based actions can also be automated with support for Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation.

Their headquarters are in Helsinki, Finland and they sell direct only in Finland, Russia and CIS countries, using a network of local partners (over 100 resellers and consulting partners) in over 50 countries worldwide to sell and distribute elsewhere.

They have over 1500 customers across the world, predominately in Scandinavia. The customers cover the whole spectrum of verticals.

QPR Software can be purchased directly from QPR or through its network of resellers.

All the components are based on the .NET platform as well as supporting a full client server or cloud-based approach to delivery.

QPR Maintenance customers get access to QPR Usernet, an extranet that hosts the most recent information and downloadable versions of QPR software products.
