IQMS ERP System Built for Manufacturers

The comprehensive IQMS system integrates MES and ERP functionality into a comprehensive solution in which all data—from systems and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors on the shop floor to the back office—is managed by the same embedded Oracle database. This empowers manufacturing enterprises to take a streamlined approach to centralizing activity across the supply chain and ensuring that complete, accurate information is available to all authorized users at all times. 

Through IQMS’s Choice is the New Cloud™ program, customers have access to three deployment models designed for the needs of manufacturers. These include options to have a cloud-based subscription, their own IQMS license running in a hosted cloud, or licensed IQMS software running in their own data centers—either on servers or in a private cloud.

Additionally, IQMS delivers IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup, which eliminates the need to manually backup data while providing secured offsite storage, and IQMS Web BI, which features rich, cloud-based business intelligence and visualization functionality from Oracle that helps manufacturers gain greater insights into their data.
