- QAD’s vision for our customers.
- Every business process running at peak efficiency and perfectly aligned to the company’s strategic goals.
We aim to help our customers become Effective Enterprises, but what does that mean?
All aspects of our solution are architected to support the Effective Enterprise. In an ever changing world, continuous improvement is a fundamental requirement for achieving this vision.
One size does not fit all when it comes to ERP software, and that’s why we put our focus on six manufacturing industries — providing you with the functionality you need without the distraction and complexity of functionality you don’t need and don’t want. This reduces the effort, cost and time to benefit. Reduced complexity provides a more flexible ERP solution after implementation.
The modular design of our software allows customers to select only the enhanced areas they want to upgrade without needing to upgrade the entire application. This makes upgrades smaller, faster and easier. Helping you to stay current and reducing the gap between your business needs and what your ERP provides.
Customers have unique needs, so we’ve extended the concept of modular design to deliver the QAD Enterprise Platform. This allows our partners and customers to easily deliver the last mile functionality to provide the flexible ERP you need today without creating a rigid system that will make it harder to achieve fit tomorrow.
Leveraging services provided by the PaaS such as mobile, embedded analytics, user experience (UX) personalization, collaboration and IoT / automation, solutions can be rapidly deployed. No need to reinvent the wheel or pay for it twice. Solutions developed on the platform provide the benefits of customization without the need for intrusive code that creates version lock-in.
From an IT perspective, our cloud ERP solution frees up your valuable IT resources to concentrate on the strategic aspects of ERP — namely process improvement and roadmap — while leaving the tactical components of infrastructure and application management to us.
From a business perspective, cloud-based ERP allows you to focus on what’s most important to you: your customers and your products knowing that your ERP systems are being run by someone equally as passionate about their customer's success.
Through award winning customer engagement, QAD delivers a continuous improvement approach to ensure alignment for the long term between your business strategy, the people, process and best practices you utilize to achieve your goals and the technology that supports it. We meet with each customer, every year to understand their business challenges and how to overcome them. We review your performance against your desired outcomes and leveraging our KPI framework, discuss the process, skills and best practices that impact these outcomes.
THESE ARE NOT SALES PITCHES, THESE ARE UNPAID CONSULTING ENGAGEMENTS.
QAD’s approach leads to a lower cost and lower risk phased project. We are focused on achieving enterprise-wide business outcomes through process review and business transformation. Since the only constant is change, you need a partner who can help over the long term to ensure this alignment remains strong as the market evolves.
You are not alone. We stand with you every day. From day one of solution design to every day that follows after you go live and beyond, we partner with you as you work to achieve operational excellence.
