FrontRunners quadrants highlight the top software products for North American small businesses, helping these companies to make more informed decisions about what software is right for them. Software Advice states that all 25 products appearing in the FrontRunners Quadrant for Enterprise Resource Planning are top performers. To create this quadrant, Software Advice evaluated more than 600 enterprise resource planning (ERP) products, selecting those with the top scores for their capability and value. Scores are based largely on reviews from real software users, along with other product performance details, such as what features are offered and how many customers they have.

“Our manufacturing ERP customers range from established businesses to start-ups to on-shore branches of off-shore companies. From the start, we have been committed to giving these companies a unified view across their manufacturing operations and supply chain that enables them to compete more effectively in the global market,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “We are honored to be selected for the Software Advice FrontRunners Quadrant for Enterprise Resource Planning, April 2017 based on the reviews and ratings of our customers. We view it as validation of the value we bring to customers by combining native ERP and MES functionality into a single system that addresses these manufacturers’ operations, from the back office to the shop floor and across the supply network.”

IQMS ERP System Built for Manufacturers

IQMS software uniquely combines robust ERP and MES functionality into one 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 manufacturing firms.

  • Software as a Service is for customers that want to take advantage of IQMS via a cloud-based subscription.
  • Managed Cloud is for manufacturers that want to own their IQMS license but take advantage of a hosted cloud deployment.
  • Premise is for customers that want to run IQMS software in their own data center—either directly on servers or in a private cloud.

Additionally, IQMS delivers IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup and IQMS Web BI. IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup enables customers to automatically backup their IQMS system data to the robust Oracle Cloud, eliminating the need to manually backup data while providing secured offsite storage. IQMS Web BI features rich, cloud-based business intelligence and visualization functionality from Oracle to help manufacturers gain greater insights into their ERP and financial data. The cloud services are available to all manufacturing customers, whether they have IQMS software deployed on-premises or in the cloud hosted by IQMS.
