PASO ROBLES, CA –June 23, 2010 – IQMS, an innovator in the design and development of manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced the release of a new EnterpriseIQ application for BlackBerry devices giving real-time access to mobile employees. With the installation of the EnterpriseIQ application for Blackberry, IQMS users will have the ability to manage and view areas such as CRM, work flow, inventory, customer pricing, sales orders, capable to promise (CTP), shop floor production information, and more giving them a competitive advantage while on the go.
IQMS developed the EnterpriseIQ application to specifically meet the growing needs of its customer base who use BlackBerries. The application utilizes existing BlackBerry software and web services (SOA) to have a constant connection to the EnterpriseIQ ERP system – no BlackBerry server required. EnterpriseIQ is a single-database ERP solution designed to provide lean and agile functionality for process and repetitive manufacturers. Through the new BlackBerry application, users will be able to access many areas of the ERP system that previously required computer connection.
“From viewing a customer record, pinpointing their location using GPS, and complete availability of inventory and Capable To Promise, being away from the office has never been more productive,” says Ted Statler, Nicolet Plastics. “The EnterpriseIQ BlackBerry application is easy to access, easy to read, and easy to understand. I would expect nothing less from IQMS.”
The easy to use application will give users of IQMS software access to live enterprise wide information with no batch transfers. The new EnterpriseIQ BlackBerry application supplements the existing Microsoft-based EnterpriseIQ smart phone application that focused on CRM alone. Through continuous advancement, IQMS expanded on the concept to go beyond just CRM and into other key areas that provide useful information to employees not tied to a desk.
“IQMS prides itself on customer satisfaction, which is why we developed a BlackBerry application for our customers and employees who need to access the ERP system on-the-go or who don’t have immediate access to a laptop or PC” said Glenn Nowak, vice president of IQMS. “EnterpriseIQ for the BlackBerry is another step to giving our customers immediate access to the IQMS system any time they need it on a single mobile device. The business world is constantly on the move, and we want to give our customers a competitive advantage.”
