OpenQ’s MobileQ™ App Named a Winner in ABA’s First Tech and New Product Awards Ceremony

OpenQ (, the leading provider of solutions to enable life sciences and healthcare companies to overcome compliance and exposure risks, was presented with a Silver Stevie® Award in the App Award – Business/Government category in the 10th Annual American Business Awards.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the trophies were presented to winners during a gala banquet on Monday, September 17. Within the same category, Citrix and Accenture won Gold and Bronze respectively.    

The MobileQ App (, available on the Apple App Store (download at:, delivers compliant collaboration for field-based individuals within the Life Sciences industry. Product functionality includes offline content management, secure access to Key Opinion Leader (KOL) information, as well as the ability to record and manage compliant interactions with those KOLs.

“We are thrilled to be recognized with a Stevie Award in the same category with Accenture and Citrix,” said Jim Zuffoletti, President, OpenQ. “OpenQ is the only company in our sector ever to be recognized for our technology with this prestigious award.”

“The adoption of iPad in Life Sciences is accelerating and by making our mobile solution available on the App Store we shorten the time needed to get the product in the hands of users. Life Sciences companies are embracing the iPad’s unique design because it makes it easier to perform the compliant, time-sensitive, and mission critical tasks the industry needs while maintaining effectiveness,” said Otavio Freire, Chief Technology Officer and Co-founder of OpenQ.

Field and headquarters personnel are continuously challenged to provide the right content in a timely manner. Presentations can be shared “on-the-spot” during discussions with healthcare providers (HCPs). When content is updated at headquarters, the changes are automatically available in the field via the iPad’s wireless connection. Compliant interaction notes are entered through an elegant interface from within the same app. Data on these interactions, along with contextual information are then automatically available for analysis and decision making. This enables deep insight into areas such as the effectiveness of particular content, potential causes of off-label inquiries, and industry trends.

Users also gain access to OpenQ’s industry-leading profiles. This data, which is curated from a wide array of data sources, is collected in a library and is fully searchable. Updated data as well as new profiles are automatically synchronized with individual iPads in the field. MobileQ’s unique capabilities ensure that your field force and headquarters have the ability to review critical information, share content, or enter notes online or offline.

Only MobileQ was designed and built for commercialization, Research and Medical Science Liaisons (MSLs) to identify and develop the business critical and highly scrutinized relationships between life sciences companies and KOLs and their medical networks.

More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 270 executives nationwide who participated in the judging process this year.
