IQMS Named Manufacturing ‘FrontRunner’

IQMS’ manufacturing automation software has been named amongst the leading ERP software products by Software Advice in their FrontRunners for Manufacturing and FrontRunners for Enterprise Resource Planning report.

Software Advice, a Gartner company is a leading online service for organisations going through the software selection process. By using real reviews from real software users, Software Advice helps ‘small businesses to make more informed decisions about what software is right for them’.

To create the FrontRunners for Manufacturing report, Software Advice evaluated over 70 manufacturing software products, which have a minimum feature list including materials requirements planning, execution management, quality management and product lifecycle management. Software Advice evaluated more than 150 ERP systems for the Enterprise Resource Planning report.

Those products with the top scores for usability and ‘user recommended’ from at least 20 reviews over 18 months were then selected for the FrontRunner list.

Commenting on the accolade, Gary Nemmers, CEO at IQMS said:

“Since 1989, we have been committed to delivering a comprehensive system built specifically for manufacturers, which gives our customers the unified view across their operations and supply chain that they need to compete in the global market. We are honoured to be selected for the Software Advice FrontRunners for Manufacturing and Enterprise Resource Planning reports based on the reviews and ratings of our customers. We see it as validation of the value our integrated, native MES and ERP system capabilities bring to manufacturers in empowering them to optimise their operations, from the back office to the shop floor and across the supply network.”

To meet the needs of small manufacturers more, IQMS has recently launched a new core manufacturing product for manufacturing businesses looking to move away from relying on simple Excel spreadsheets or non-manufacturing specific accounting software to manage their operations.

IQMS’ small business ERP system is aimed at manufacturers with five to 10 users, delivering industry-leading enterprise-level functionality to manage order processing, production, scheduling, quality management, shipping and accounting. IQMS small business ERP also provides real-time production monitoring as an added bonus.
