QAD, a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, announced today the availability of several new innovations for QAD Cloud ERP and QAD Enterprise Applications 2015. Leading the list of innovations is the first phase of QAD’s Channel Islands initiative, giving users of QAD Cloud ERP access to an attractive, device independent and effective user experience (UX). Available to early adopters, it delivers the new effective UX for sales order processing, requisition approvals, dashboards, 26 base functions and adds an event-based collaborative business activity feed.
“As demonstrated by the many new capabilities made available this September, QAD continues to push the boundaries of ERP on multiple fronts,” said Bill Keese, Senior Vice President of Research and Development for QAD. “Our latest enhancements span user experience, internationalization, material handling, distribution, quality control and cost control, all created with the goal of helping customers become more effective enterprises.”
Another highlight of QAD’s September 2015 enhancements includes the limited availability release of QAD Automation Solutions, a set of shop floor data collection and label printing services directly integrated with QAD Enterprise Applications. The solution results in more intelligent, accurate and traceable packaging and shipping through unified serialization and item attributes. Automation Solutions is available to customers using recent versions of QAD Enterprise Applications ERP and QAD Cloud ERP.
