Cloud-Based MosaiQ Coming to APQC Members in March 2016

Enhances and streamlines the development of process frameworks

Published: Thursday, January 21, 2016 - 16:21

(APQC: Houston) -– APQC, the benchmarking and best practices authority, introduces its new cloud-based business process tool, MosaiQ. The MosaiQ tool simplifies the adoption and long-term use of process frameworks, specifically APQC’s Process Classification Framework, including working with individuals inside and outside of the business to develop a custom process framework.

By creating a common language, MosaiQ enables companies to quickly and easily measure, manage, and learn about their business processes.

MosaiQ is an easy-to-use collaborative tool with no software to install or maintain, offering direct access to APQC best-practice content and research. Organizations can quickly drag-and-drop process elements to create custom frameworks, and users can model their organizational structure and map it to their process framework to better understand performance. The MosaiQ tool helps organizations:
• Measure performance and benchmark against the world’s largest database of performance metrics
• Manage critical process-related content
• Learn from APQC’s best-practice research and Knowledge Base content
• Create a common language for business processes

Executives from more than 20 global organizations currently serve on the MosaiQ Advisory Council, providing insight and strategic direction on the tool’s development. Organizations represented include:

adaQuest

DesJardins Financial Group

Project Consulting Group

Alberta Health Services

Hospira Inc.

Rockwell Collins

Allegient

Johnson & Johnson

State IT Agency

Astra Zeneca

Logintrans Sp. Z o.o

TD Williamson SA

BPM-D

Lowe’s Companies Inc.

Unicomer Group

Capricorn Investments

Microsoft Corporation

Wipro Technologies Limited

Chevron Corporation

“APQC members will receive access to the MosaiQ tool as part of their membership,” says John Tesmer, director of Open Standards Benchmarking. “Users will have access to all APQC created benchmarks and the Open Standards Benchmarking database as well as the ability to create or include custom measures.” Content management features include securely uploading process models, policies, diagrams, and other process content directly to MosaiQ.

The MosaiQ tool is presently in beta testing with a release date set for March 2016 for APQC members and Summer 2016 for the public. For more information, visit www.apqc.org/mosaiq.
