“Since 1989, we have been committed to delivering a comprehensive system built specifically for manufacturers, which gives our customers the unified view across their operations and supply chain that they need to compete in the global market,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “We are honored to be selected for the Software Advice FrontRunners for Manufacturing, June 2018 report based on the reviews and ratings of our customers. We see it as validation of the value our integrated, native MES and ERP capabilities bring to manufacturers in empowering them to optimize their operations, from the back office to the shop floor and across the supply network.”

IQMS Integrated 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. The latest addition to IQMS’s comprehensive system is the Track and Trace module, which provides manufacturers with the additional data, insights and intelligence they need to easily and accurately provide documentation and product tracking to react and respond to recalls and meet industry regulations and quality audits. Additionally, IQMS Web BI 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.
