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

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. This constant pulse of what's happening in the market has revealed a few common trends that we can expect in 2014. So before the shine of a new year begins to fade, let's take a look at my predictions for the coming year:

Improving Shop Floor Control and Transparency: The RTStation 10.1

Posted by Neil Gow on Thu, May 02, 2013 @ 09:32 AM

Now that we have numerous customers using our new RTStations in their manufacturing facilities, I would like to take a moment and discuss the many uses this device offers. The second iteration of IQMS’ shop floor device, the RTStation 10.1, was soft launched a few months ago to our customers based on their valuable development feedback to the legacy RTStation (for example, the more modern version offers a larger screen (10 inch versus 7 inch) and wireless capabilities to allow more flexibility on the shop floor - Manufacturers can now mount the RTStation to a forklift for improved inventory tracking and warehouse management). Much of the success of a program like this is not possible without our customers’ valued input and it is always a great feeling to provide our users with products that resulted from their direction and feedback.

Posted by Nicole Smith on Thu, Dec 13, 2012 @ 09:35 AM

As gifts begin appearing under the tree and the New Year’s champagne chills, we take a moment to ponder the year past and consider the possibilities of the year ahead. A lot has occurred in 2012, both at the national level in the form of a recovering economy and a presidential election, and at the global ERP supplier level, including mergers and acquisitions, disquieting lawsuits and new product innovation.

There is no “O” in SaaS – IQMS Reflects on TCO and The Cloud

Posted by Glenn Nowak on Thu, Oct 11, 2012 @ 10:57 AM

IQMS attended the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) ERP Conference last week in Cleveland. The event was held in an interesting format in that the ERP suppliers were allowed to give a brief overview of their software and company, followed by a case study opportunity for a customer to discuss their success with the supplier’s ERP system. While IQMS was not able to have a "live" customer attend, we were able to show a video from one of our customers:  Gill Industries, Inc., a full service provider of engineered assemblies and metal stampings in Grand Rapids, Mich. [Click here to view the video of Gill's IQMS Manufacturing Success Award finalist nomination]. Feedback from the attendees at the show indicated that they could really relate to IQMS’ presentation as it showed a real company using its manufacturing ERP software in action.
