On January 20th, 2009, Questetra started download distribution of free BPM software, “Questetra BPM Suite.”
“Questetra BPM Suite” not only enables process owners to draw and design business flow diagrams but also provides participants in charge of tasks with input / output pages based on designed business flow diagrams. In other words, “Questetra BPM Suite” is a kind of groupware that supports computer worker business processes. (It is also called “Human-Centric BPM System.”)
BPM: Business Process Management. A business management concept of improving business processes iteratively and continuously.
Once you install this software on a computer, both process owners and participants in charge of tasks can readily take advantage of all the features via Web browsers. Because “Questetra BPM Suite” can be used free of charge regardless of the number of users, the number of business flow diagrams, duration of use, etc., it fits team and department use.
However, the total number of tasks being processed* in various business flow diagrams (Process Models) you designed is limited up to “10 concurrent tasks.” So, for example, if you want to control many businesses in a company by using “Questetra BPM Suite” (IT Business Process Control), you will need to buy “Extension Key” (starting from $100 per month) to lift the restriction.
* “Maximum number of concurrent” process instances
