“Our manufacturing ERP customers range from established businesses to start-ups to on-shore branches of off-shore companies. Through our Choice is the New Cloud program, we are empowering these manufacturers to capitalize on the efficiencies, scalability and data protection afforded by the cloud without compromising on application flexibility,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “We believe being named by Gartner as a representative vendor in the ‘Market Guide for Product-Centric Cloud ERP Solutions’ report4 reinforces the value that our IQMS cloud offerings bring to customers.”
