QAD Welcomes Partners to QAD Teamwork 2019

QAD Inc. (Nasdaq: QADA) (Nasdaq: QADB), a leading provider of flexible, cloud-based enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, today welcomed partners from throughout the EMEA region to the Teamwork 2019 partner conference at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Wroclaw in Wroclaw, Poland.  Teamwork 2019 begins today and concludes Tuesday, Nov 5.

Teamwork is QAD's largest annual European event where partners, developers, consultants and QAD experts come together for several days of informative sessions, hands-on training, manufacturing industry-specific presentations and networking. The agenda provides updates on key trends in manufacturing, strategic developments in the industries QAD serves, QAD EMEA partner community success stories and information on new solution developments.

This year, QAD CEO Anton Chilton opens the event with QAD’s 2019 Strategic Update.  QAD Chief Technology Officer Tony Winter will deliver the keynote address on the importance of agility in the face of industry disruption in his presentation Meeting the Challenges of Industry Disruption with QAD Adaptive ERP.

The conference features three individual session tracks tailored to QAD solutions updates, developers and consultants. 

  • The Solutions track features a comprehensive update and review of the QAD product and technology roadmap.
  • The Consultants tracks focus on product training for functional consultants delivering the latest QAD solutions to customers.  This year’s training features QAD Automation Solutions and Quality Management.
  • The Developers track is a practical and hands-on session aimed at developing and working with apps and the QAD Platform

“Teamwork is the most effective way to bring together the QAD partner ecosystem in EMEA, exchange ideas and learn from the people that help us provide the highest level of service to our customers,” said QAD Senior Vice President, EMEA Steve Gardner. “The manufacturing industry here in EMEA, and around the world is evolving so quickly, forcing our customers to adjust to disruption faster than they ever have before.  QAD’s goal is to design applications that help them to recognize disruption, adapt to it, and eventually leverage it into competitive advantage.  The developers, consultants and partners we work with, and who attend Teamwork each year, are vital to helping us carry out that mission.”
