Today I had the opportunity to talk to client that chose and implemented QAD back in 2004. I wanted to get new input on the QAD experience. The company is very satisfied with QAD. They picked QAD because of its low cost of ownership, and because QAD is strong in the medical industry. The company is supporting the system with 2 system analysts, and 2 network administrators.
The company recently upgraded to the latest release with no problems. They have not implemented advanced features (CRM, BI, APS), but they are now looking at QAD’s lean manufacturing and quality function.
They attended the latest user conference, and commented that the conference is driven by the large user base of automotive parts manufactures.
