The Value of QAD Support
QAD Support Helps Mitigate Risk and Maximize Value
The decision to implement QAD Enterprise Applications across your organization is significant and long lasting. And the enduring partnership that is created between QAD and your staff is an integral component in driving your success. QAD shares your vision and focuses on helping to improve your operations and keep your systems running optimally.
QAD Support provides a responsive and experienced team to help you implement rapidly and continues to support you throughout the application lifecycle – allowing you to provide uninterrupted service to your user community and to serve your customers better.
With the growing needs of your business, you face many challenges, such as supporting multiple sites, standardizing globally, ensuring compliance and integrating with other systems. Your IT resources are expected to meet these challenges and keep your systems up and stable, while providing optimal levels of service to your user community.
As ERP applications have become more critical to the business and the bottom line – they are being viewed as mission critical systems which must be available 24 x 7, around the globe – IT organizations are feeling the pressure. In today’s world, it is a very risky proposition to take on the support and maintenance of those applications with internal resources only. The risk of a disruption in service without the skills and resources needed to respond rapidly is far too great for most organizations.
QAD Support provides the resources, tools and expertise you need to help make the most of your QAD investment and support your business operations at optimal levels. This in turn allows you to support your user community and customers better.
QAD Support offers many features that you would expect from a highly respected software leader, such as 24 x 7 support, a searchable knowledgebase, remote access diagnostics and a software and documentation download center. But unlike other software firms, QAD gives you our best and brightest on every call and every ticket, every time you need help – we don’t use inexperienced personnel to take that first call. This means faster resolution to your issues, less disruption to your business and higher application availability. QAD support experts boast an average of seven years of QAD product experience and answer 25,000 calls annually. We believe in first impressions and it shows.
With over 50% of QAD customers running operations outside of the United States, QAD Support offers an extensive network of support centers to ensure fast, regionalized expertise when you need it. We offer multi-lingual support from 15 support centers. All support employees use the same tools, processes and procedures and receive the same rigorous training. This means you get the high quality service and professionalism you deserve, regardless of your location.
