BPM software firm Q-Link announces product availability, alliances

San Diego  December 4, 2001  At the Delphi Group's BPM 2001 Summit, Q-Link Technologies Inc., a business process management (BPM) software firm, announced the availability of Q-Link 4.0 and the formation of an alliance with OmniHub, a New York-based integration software and services firm.

In a related statement, Q-Link announced yet another alliance, this time with Novarra Inc., an instant wireless software provider, to extend BPM to a new line of wireless handheld devices.

With regard to the release of Q-Link 4.0, Q-Link stated that organizations need a fast and cost-effective solution for automating and integrating their business processes. Under the terms of Q-Link's partnership agreement with OmniHub, the integration software and services firm will develop and include reusable integration modules called Process Action Components in the OmniHub for use with Q-Link 4.0 platform.

Commenting on Q-Link 4.0's new capabilities, Steven Horwitz, CEO of Q-Link Technologies, said the software and the Process Action Components functionality represent a solution that will enable organizations to achieve savings in application development time and system integration, resulting in lower costs and increased productivity.

The combined Q-Link and Novarra solution, according to Q-Link, will extend any process, to any person, anywhere in real-time. The companies hope the end result will be that key employees in an enterprise will be able to participate in automated processes, even while away from the office.

 As the size of the mobile workforce continues to increase, companies are challenged to extend critical business information beyond the desktop to workers at the point of activity  and this is the benefit Q-Link and Novarra offer, said Art Roldan, president and CEO of Novarra.
