PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – February 27 2018 – IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and manufacturing execution system (MES) authority, today announced that IQMS EnterpriseIQ has been recognized by Capterra on The Top 20 Most Popular Material Requirements Planning Software list. IQMS provides material requirements planning (MRP) capabilities as part of IQMS’s comprehensive system, which uniquely combines robust MES and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software functionality to provide an end-to-end solution for manufacturers.

The Top 20 Most Popular Material Requirements Planning Software is an independent assessment by Capterra, a Gartner company that provides a leading free software discovery and reviews platform. The list was developed by measuring the number of customers and users for each MRP provider, as well as each company’s social media presence.

“For nearly three decades, we have been committed to giving customers a unified view across their manufacturing operations that enables them to compete more effectively in the global market,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “We are honored to be recognized by Capterra on The Top 20 Most Popular Material Requirements Planning Software list. We view it as validation of the value we bring in providing manufacturers with a single, comprehensive system that empowers them to maximize their efficiency and agility throughout the organization and across their 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.

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 run it in a hosted cloud deployment. Premise is for customers that want to run IQMS software in their own data center—either on servers or in a private cloud.

Additionally, IQMS delivers IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup, which eliminates the need to manually backup data while providing secured offsite storage, and IQMS Web BI, which features rich, cloud-based business intelligence and visualization functionality from Oracle that helps manufacturers gain greater insights into their 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.
