In New Orleans, they always laissez les bon temps rouler – and the 2014 edition of QAD Explore customer conference held there on May 5 – 8 was no exception. We’re talking about great educational sessions and valuable insights into QAD’s product vision and direction.

A highlight of the conference was seeing long-time Strategic customer and QAD user Toni Clubb, CFO of Vitatech, recognized for commitment to innovation with QAD ERP.

As always, the conference delivered actionable information about making the most of QAD systems.

Transitioning from on premise to cloud ERP was an especially hot topic, from building the business case, to “life after migration”. QAD continues to demonstrate a keen understanding of what transitioning to the cloud means for life sciences manufacturers. Quality management also continues to get the spotlight.

Modules like QAD Item Attributes, QAD Serialization and QAD Lot Trace Workbench provide capabilities that improve business performance by integrating compliance processes with business processes. QAD Enterprise Financials offers new and better ways to report smarter and close faster, drive operational efficiency and guarantee compliance. And, as big data continues to get even bigger, analytics is a topic of growing interest – QAD continues to strengthen the analytics capabilities of its BI solution.

Just as QAD works to keep its products and services at the forefront of manufacturing ERP, we at Strategic are continuously improving our tools, processes and methodologies to help you maximize the value of your ERP.
