Review of QAD On Demand Web ERP

April, 2013

Rating: 4/5

In a phrase, I’m pleasantly surprised by QAD On-demand Web ERP.

QAD provide a solid middle-sized ERP solution for manufacturing. It contains the features you need for a manufacturing organisation - Enterprise Financials, Customer Management, Manufacturing, Enterprise Asset Management, Supply Chain, Service and Support, and Analytics.

Before you choose QAD On Demand Web ERP, here are the key things you need to know.

First, the “on-demand” or software as a service offering is impressive. They provide a good quality service, with solid SLA (guaranteeing 99.5% availability) and split across their data centres in the US and Hong Kong. Their security measures are good, meeting SAS 70 / SSAE 16, PCI-DSS, and ISO9001. We believe that on-demand services are the future of ERP, and QAD is a solid choice that I recommend you consider.

Second, be aware that QAD’s strength is in the a few specific industries. They target manufacturing for automotive, life sciences, configured products, discrete products, consumer products, food and beverage. If your business is in these industries, I recommend you put QAD on your shortlist.

Third, they provide good quality manufacturing features, as well as strong financial functionality. As always, I recommend you clearly document your specific requirements, and review

Finally, choosing partners. While QAD provide a high-quality ERP solution, they aren’t as large as some of the other ERP organisations. This means that there are fewer QAD partners, so make sure you choose your partner carefully - look for somebody who is experienced, and has good reference sites.

For medium and large manufacturing organisations, in automotive, life sciences, configured products, discrete products, consumer products, or food and beverage, I recommend you put QAD on your shortlist.
