Posted by Glenn Nowak on Thu, Feb 06, 2014 @ 09:27 AM

IQMS does not contract with third-party VARs or outside implementation consultants, but instead employs a large staff of in-house trainers, application specialists and sales team members. These IQMS "feet on the street" spend nearly every week of the year in manufacturing plants across the globe, listening and learning about developments in our industry.
