Santa Barbara, CA — January 10, 2008 — Strategic Information Group (SIG) announces that an emerging San Diego Biotechnology company went live on version 2007.1 of QADs Enterprise Applications. The full system implementation lasted only 6 weeks.

The company is an emerging biotechnology leader, engineering novel solutions to provide the foundation for a new class of diagnostic assays. Their proprietary technology enables earlier, accurate, less invasive diagnoses. QADs Enterprise Applications were selected over other competing ERP systems given QADs strong track record with emerging, high-growth Life Sciences and Biotechnology companies.

Ray Greenwood, SIG VP Services commented A rapid time to benefit of only 6 weeks showcases SIG and QADs ability to provide a tailored solution, specific to emerging Medical Device, Biotechnology, and Pharmaceutical customers as a low-risk Enterprise solution. Our success in delivering rapid, out-of-the-box ERP applications to this market segment is unparalleled by other vendors.

Using SIGs direct start methodology the company implemented the Financial and Manufacturing components of the base QAD 2007.1 system as well as consignment inventory. The client also implemented the Compliance module to assist with maintaining FDA compliance. Under the leadership of SIG the project was completed both on time and on budget.

Future plans include implementing bar code data collection and sales aspects of the system after commercialization
