IQMS Blog for Manufacturing ERP Expertise
One of the most critical components to a successful ERP implementation is the support of upper level management. Whether your business is a less than $5 million manufacturer or a multi-facility, multi-national operation, having the support of top management turns the odds in your favor that your implementation will be successful.
At IQMS, we are proud to support customer-driven design and development of our manufacturing ERP and MES software. The two-way dialogue and relationships we foster with our clients is a cornerstone of our company: Our manufacturers feel comfortable coming to us with their challenges and we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with them on solutions. But this doesn’t mean that we only develop based on client suggestions. We have a strategic product road map of where we want our comprehensive ERP and MES solution to travel, with the needs of our customers acting as a compass.
