Whatever the form of transformation, from customer journeys to corporate compliance to automating business processes, iGrafx ensures that goals are prioritized and executed, and ROI is achieved.
But how did we get here? It definitely didn’t happen overnight…
Way back in 1991, iGrafx founder and current CTO, Ed Maddock, and his partner created the company that developed and launched the industry’s first Window’s-based process diagramming tool. Since then, iGrafx has been at the forefront of the continuously evolving business process management industry and has contributed continuously. Along the way, the company introduced the world’s first interactive graphical business process simulation tool, and then actually coined and trademarked the use of “swim lanes,” which has become the de facto way to represent and describe roles within process flows.
In 2011, after years of ownership by first Micrografx, and then Corel, iGrafx was taken private in an acquisition by Lone Rock Technology Group. This initiative reinfused the company with resources and triggered a long series of reinvestment that continues today. At this point, iGrafx sells and services the most powerful solution suite in company history.
Continual expansion over the last 28 years led to the creation of offices around the world, with headquarters locations in Portland, Oregon, Austin, Texas and Munich, Germany, and active distribution currently takes place in more than 20 countries. However, despite the breadth and depth achieved, iGrafx has never veered from its singular focus: ROI-proven business transformation at scale.
Today more than ever, we live by our core values: fire in the belly, like a family, evolution, execution and transparency. Our driving purpose is to provide our employees with opportunities for experiences and recognition, and the results show through in customer satisfaction and longevity. The future is bright.
