Plug-Ins Overview
openQRM is based on a generic and consistent workflow architecture. The main concept behind this is that every action in openQRM is triggered by an event in openQRM and implemented by one or more plugins to actually apply the action for a specific technology or tool.

That means that the responsibility for every command in openQRM is being handed over to one or more plugins which then actually “do the work”.

Additional Plug-Ins are activated in the openQRM Plugin Manager and simply need to be started. These are only available for the Enterprise Edition.

Simply order additional Plug-Ins in the openQRM Enterprise web-shop.
