"QAD ERP & QAD QMS - Product that rivals any package available. "

What do you like best?

Versatility within QAD ERP allows business to take their individual business processes and easily fit QAD to support, from Fixed Asset Management to Managing thousands of customers via their rich Service and Support Module. Having one System to enable Manufacturing, Engineering, Finance, Global Supply Chain and Customer Operations eliminates the need for costly bolt on systems as well as an extremely low cost of ownership relating to Business Analysts and IT infrastructure. It's User Interface might not be the most sexy to the e-suite, but they don't use the system. Functionally rich system and allows quick uptake relating to user adoption is the key strength of QAD ERP.

QAD Support Services are a strength, compared to other ERP Vendors, you can pick up a phone, live chat, submit web based support tickets and even utilize their knowledge base for software questions as well as business use scenarios, cutting direct support costs but more importantly cutting time to solve your individual challenge.

What do you dislike?

Although every system has it's drawbacks, there is not one system that fits all. If one improvement was needed I would suggesting focusing more attention on integration and product robustness with regards to QAD's QMS (Cebos) system as Quality and Regulatory is a large concerning within my industry (Pharma) it becomes extremely important this offering becomes more focused in this area.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Reporting and Dashboards are cute, but functionally what is important for an ERP System, quick access, easy data entry, and ability to retrieve data to make business decisions, for these objectives, QAD has always hit the mark, and hit it well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the QAD Partners, we have been able to solve many business challenges, the Core QAD ERP has enabled us to become nimble operation, with Manufacturing - mixed mode, process and Global Supply Chain. QAD's womb-to-tomb lot and serialization provides a level of insight to all product lineage. We have mobile (iPhone, etc.) automating our Purchase Requisitions, Field Support Engineers and soon the entire global clinical group will be utilize QAD as it's system of record. Our total time to implement was shorter than I've experienced with any other ERP products, thus moving our operation forward to support customers and the business.

"QAD ERP for Life Science"

What do you like best?

QAD is a solid ERP system with many components required to maintain our regulatory compliance with the FDA. they have a team of visionaries that pay very close attention to industry trends and ensure they keep up with what is required in the software.

What do you dislike?

if you run QAD as a SaaS solution you do not have direct access to your servers to make changes. I don't know if this is a dislike as much as it is a preference.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Know your business processes inside and out before you look, this way you ensure you are getting the most out of the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

we were able to bring our entire business model from Sales Order creation to Revenue recognition under one piece of software allowing us to streamline our processes to ensure we were working more efficiently.

"QAD is in reality an ERP system not a multi purpose system which we are trying to use"

What do you like best?

Probably the only comment is that all platforms including CRM,ERP and Sales tools are on the same platform.

Quite reasonable in turning quotes into orders, and pretty diverse reporting capability. The fact that all functions are on the same platform is definitely of potential benefit to organisations as it allows complete access if necessary to all functions round a single client ID. This includes quotes, credit history and previous sales history coupled with the CRM PROFILE which does provide a potentially reasonable overview

What do you dislike?

It is inflexible, costly to customise and very limited in our revision in terms of Internet interaction.

Also has a menu structure that is insanely large and some of the menu descriptions don reflect the actual function. Also a comment on the CRM. It is far to structured and difficult to manoeuvre around in the various profiles and address requirements to be of significant benefit to sales teams.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be mindful of what you are trying to achieve. In its own right QAD is probably a very good ERP solution. However it suffers when you try to add sales functionality and CRM to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Probably limited solutions at this time but mainly interaction between sales history and product forecasting is one of the better ones. Additionally the turning of quotes into sales orders is basically a single function solution so very useful.

"QAD ERP Solutions"

What do you like best?

QAD's commitment to enhancing and improving the user's ability to utilize the software to manage their enterprise by allowing the customization of the screens to adapt to user rather than the user adapting to QAD.

What do you dislike?

QAD's nomenclature from screen to screen are different however it is actually the same data. example would be price lists and discount tables.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Move to EE version on the cloud.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Use of the MSW/PSW has streamlined our schedules to accurately gauge our metrics. We are moving to utilize the metrics within Net.ui. The power of users to get data using the browse functions. More information, more positive trends to manage our enterprise.

"QAD - A Great ERP for Enterprise"

What do you like best?

I like that its has some customization, the huge selections of modules, and the support team is great.

What do you dislike?

QAD is a very proprietary program, so if you have in-house IT you need to make sure that they are knowledgeable with Linux and Open Edge Progress. It can become very costly to maintain if you do not have in-house knowledge.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be mindful of the support and training required for product. Its also a very costly software to license on a per user basis

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ERP system - being able to track what come in the door as unfinished goods to what goes out the door as finished goods

"Non-intuitive interface that adds to learning curve for new associates"

What do you like best?

The upgraded interface is better but still has a long way to go.

What do you dislike?

It is not intuitive and not easy to search through necessary screens for different job tasks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find an ERP that can integrate with SAAS.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Doesn't seem like it's keeping with the latest technology. Any new updates requires a major overhaul and it doesn't have a true mobile solution.

"Difficulty Accessing Useful Reporting and Metrics"

What do you like best?

All data for inventory management is accessible.

What do you dislike?

Everything is on its own page, you have to actively look through multiple confusing browses to find what you are looking for, the usability is lacking, not intuitive, older design, challenging reporting, everything we need seems to require a custom build to gain access to key business information.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Inventory management, pricing, mild reporting.

"Great ERP for Life Science Companies"

What do you like best?

We use QAD at our company and love it. It is a very robust ERP suite that handles our life science requirements very well. Getting our information in and out is great. They are truly an innovative ERP company that doesn't have the same "attitude" as some of the other ERP vendors I have worked with. When it is integrated with Salesforce.com, it met nearly all of our requirements. Well done!

What do you dislike?

It is an on-premise application--in the world of mobile devices, we need to see more rapid development of mobile applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking at this review, you probably have done a lot of homework already--just make sure you know what you're looking for.
