PASO ROBLES, CA – IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, announced that it has been named one of Inbound Logistics’ 2012 Top 100 Logistics IT Providers. Drawn from a pool of more than 300 companies, 2012’s winners were selected specifically because they solve Inbound Logistics’ readers’ need for simplicity, ROI and efficient implementation.
Integration was the central theme of this year’s Top 100 Logistics IT Providers market research report, so it is no surprise that IQMS made the list. Unlike many other ERP providers, IQMS’ software, EnterpriseIQ, is a total ERP and MES system, with no third-party, bolt-on programs. The scalable, comprehensive system delivers completely integrated transportation and logistics tools for real-time business intelligence, transparent analytics and a proactive response to supply and demand challenges.
“When selecting this year's Top 100 Logistics IT Providers, Inbound Logistics editors looked for technology providers that solved specific logistics challenges, but also acted as change agents by helping to transform overall business operations,” said Felecia Stratton, Inbound Logistics editor. “Selections were based on how transformative logistics IT solutions impact all business activities and drive integration across internal processes as well as external processes for vendors and customers.”
Through modules such as customer and vendor portals, quality tools to satisfy even the most stringent requirements and two-way MES and ERP communication, IQMS has elevated shipping management to a higher level. Recently, IQMS released Shipping Manager, a FedEx® and UPS certified module that allows users to access up-to-the-minute rates, accurate shipping charges and package tracking, all without ever leaving the EnterpriseIQ ERP system.
“Too often, transportation and supply chain challenges are not considered as important as other hurdles of the business, so manufacturers are forced to rely on third-party software as a bolted-on solution,” said Glenn Nowak, vice president at IQMS. “At IQMS, our shipping management tools are embedded in our core ERP system and completely integrated with every aspect of the business, helping our clients serve their customers faster and more efficiently at the global level.”
