PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – March 29, 2017 – IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and manufacturing execution system (MES) authority, today announced three developments aimed at helping customers to optimize their operations. They include the new IQMS Enterprise Support package, a new IoT and Automation product development office in Pleasanton, California; and an expansion of IQMS’s partnership with Canada-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) consultancy Arisoft.
Enterprise Customer Support

Additionally, it includes 24/7 phone support, an onsite business assessment, and credits that can be used for advanced education and other remote services.
“We understand that manufacturers’ success is tied to how effectively they utilize their ERP systems,” said Shannon Holloway, senior vice-president of product support and architecture at IQMS. “We are extending our support with these customers through our new IQMS Enterprise Support package, the premier support offering in the manufacturing ERP industry. It represents our total commitment to customer value and efficiency.”
IoT and Automation Office
IQMS has opened a 30-person office in Pleasanton, California, which provides an agile environment for developing manufacturing execution system (MES) and shop floor automation solutions that take advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) and other enabling technologies.

Additionally, along with our Paso Robles offices, it gives us access to some of the top manufacturing and software engineering talent in North America.”
