The ERP Writers’ Awards recognize IQMS in the Best Vendor Blog category

PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – December 18, 2017 – IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and manufacturing execution system (MES) authority, today announced that it has been awarded the Silver Award in the Best Vendor Blog category at the ERP Writers’ Awards 2017.

The awards recognize top writing talent across the ERP industry from all types of publications, with categories for both vendor and independent blogs, and for individual writers. The final results were decided by a combination of recommendations from the judges and a public vote.

“IQMS is honored to have our blog recognized by ERP Writers’ Awards,” said Steve Bieszczat, chief marketing officer at IQMS. “We work hard to educate and inform through the blog and all our media communications. Today, customers and prospects are clearly valuing education and authority over rhetoric in the materials they read. We thank ERP Focus and the ERP Writers’ Awards for recognizing our efforts to deliver valuable information to our readers.”

“I’d like to extend my congratulations to IQMS for their success in the Best Vendor Blog category,” said Kathryn Beeson, editor at ERP Focus and judge at the Awards. “The IQMS blog scored highly in the public vote and was praised by the judges for a breadth of engaging industry-focused content. Well done IQMS!”
