Posted by George Korn on Mon, Mar 30, 2015 @ 02:11 PM

Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend the NPE 2015 tradeshow in Florida. With booths and displays covering one million square feet and more than 64,000 attendees throughout the event, the show was great. While being on your feet all day and then entertaining at night makes for a long week, it was still awesome to see all the different companies firsthand.

The most recognized brands in the world spend billions of dollars every year on their marketing efforts.

These companies view marketing as a matter of survival, not theory.

Posted by George Korn on Mon, Feb 16, 2015 @ 01:05 PM

Now that I have your attention - I had an awesome week at the MD&M West trade show in Anaheim and a wonderful time with my family for Valentine’s Day, but we did not see the 50 Shades of Grey movie. I did see at least 50 different clients and prospects at MD&M and heard about how IQMS has had a positive impact at their business.

Four Manufacturing Predictions and Trends for 2015

Posted by Daniele Fresca on Thu, Dec 04, 2014 @ 09:43 AM

The holidays are upon us and it is time to not only think about family, food and gifts, but to also think about what the coming year will have in store for us. Not only for ourselves, but what does 2015 have in store for the manufacturing industry? Some of my 2015 "predictions" are based on market trends, some based on rumor and innuendo and some based on good, old-fashioned hopes – after all, I still like to think world peace is achievable! For now, these are the trends I believe will continue to evolve and dominate in the next 12 to 18 months.

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.
