“For three decades, we have been committed to delivering a comprehensive system built specifically to give our manufacturing customers the unified view across their operations and supply chain that they need to compete in the global market,” said Gary Nemmers, CEO, IQMS, Dassault Systèmes. “We are honored to be selected for the Software Advice FrontRunners for Manufacturing, December 2018 report based on the reviews and ratings of our customers. We see it as validation of the role our integrated, native MES and ERP capabilities play in empowering manufacturers to optimize their operations, from the back office to the shop floor and across the supply network.”
IQMS Integrated System for Manufacturers
IQMS 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 enables 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. Additionally, IQMS features rich, cloud-based business intelligence and visualization functionality from Oracle that helps manufacturers gain greater insights into their data.
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.
