The Shared Services capability of QAD Enterprise Applications allows multi-entity consolidations and eliminations to be performed across multiple general ledgers. The sophisticated chart of account mapping capabilities allow for different charts of account to be consolidated, and full traceability to originating transactions can be maintained, which are critical for audit ability.

Consolidation of the financial results of entities in different domains, with different base currencies and charts of account, can be achieved without the need to export and import the data. QAD's solutions support multiple or proportional consolidation and enable hierarchical reporting.

Multi Currency

QAD Enterprise Applications support multiple currencies. Accounting transactions can be recorded in any currency and reported either in the transaction currency or converted to the operation's base currency at the prevailing exchange rate. Currency reporting options allow general ledger reporting to reflect the latest exchange rate. QAD Enterprise Applications enables companies to update and maintain exchange rates at any time. All capabilities for profit and loss on foreign exchange are accommodated within QAD General Ledger reporting. Support is provided for multiple bank accounts in separate currencies.

Users can maintain and support a virtually unlimited number of currencies, and the application supports full currency dependent rounding to allow simultaneous support of different currencies. Multiple base currencies within a single database are supported by the Domain concept, and QAD General Ledger consolidation can accommodate operations running in different base currencies.

System Controls and Security

QAD has developed security and control functionality to meet strict security procedures — those required by internal corporate policies as well as mandated by governing bodies — such as the requirements of the SEC, IFRS, as well as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration 21 CFR Part 11.

  • Define and enforce security policies on password management
  • Define the threshold of failed log-in attempts that will indicate a security violation
  • Provide log-in access control and access restrictions to menu functions
  • Control password complexity and aging with configurable parameters
  • Allow administrators to force some or all users to change their password at next log-in
  • Provide enhanced intrusion detection including the ability to record all or failed log-in attempts
  • Control password composition, frequency of change and rules for reuse
  • Log all log-in events and lock accounts after a prescribed number of failed attempts
  • Provide a flexible report for investigating log-in attempts
  • Meet the requirements of 21 CFR Part 11
