Stamping Manufacturer Replaces End of Life Software with IQMS ERP

Continental Industries Selected IQMS for its Production-Based Design and Stamping-Specific Features and Compatibility


PASO ROBLES, CALIF. – Sept. 22, 2015 –IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and MES authority, today announced that HVAC manufacturer, Continental Industries, Inc., has selected IQMS to replace its legacy ERP solution. Continental Industries has been the leading designer and manufacturer of residential and commercial air outlets for 60 years.

Operating out of two facilities in Elkhart, Indiana (200,000 and 100,000 square feet, respectively), Continental Industries’ growing business was struggling with end of life issues from its current ERP system. Continental Industries had to decide whether to upgrade with its current vendor or start fresh with a new ERP solution. Looking to eliminate its disjointed systems and hardware and software incompatibilities, Continental Industries decided to investigate new ERP vendors.

Having experienced the significant struggles associated with custom ERP programming, Continental Industries sought a package that would work right out of the box. Continental Industries selected IQMS because it offered the most production-based package and the manufacturing-specific features needed most for the company’s stamping activities.

“IQMS representatives really listened to our requirements. They seemed interested in ensuring that their solution was suitable for our needs,” said Ben H. Dorsey III, vice president of marketing at Continental Industries. “The user-friendliness of IQMS’ solution, the ease of data extraction and the product fit from manufacturing floor to front office all demonstrated the flexibility we sought.”
