PASO ROBLES, CA -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, recently announced it has won the 2011 American Business Award in the New Manufacturing Product of the Year category for the latest version of its manufacturing ERP software solution.
EnterpriseIQ 7.8.1 features more than 900 new tools and reports across all aspects of the software with a development focus on providing functionality and efficiency.
Understanding the need to stay lean and competitive, the latest EnterpriseIQ release focuses on tools that keep manufacturers flexible, accurate, and proactive. The new features enhance all aspects of the software including quality management, statistical process control, shop floor performance, customer relationship management, scheduling, human resources, and much more. A small sampling of the enhancements that contributed to IQMS’ win: an easy-to-use mobile application, RealTime Process Monitoring, an automated VIN generator and flexible sales configuration templates.
“Ninety percent of the developments in our newest release were contributed directly by our customers, so this award is as much theirs as it is ours,” said Randy Flamm, president of IQMS. “Through our client suggestion portal, Community Server, we receive valuable input that has guided our development landscape over the last two years. Our commitment to development has resulted in a 60 percent increase in development staff, positioning us to continue producing innovative solutions to meet the unique and varied needs of our manufacturers globally.”
