|QAD Unveils the QAD Enterprise Platform to Provide a Foundation for Enterprise Resource Planning Agility|
New technology, changes in customer demand, public policy regulations, compliance and a host of other challenges can disrupt a manufacturer's strategy and related business processes. QAD believes the ability of an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to respond quickly to these types of disruptions, to deliver fit to requirements as they change over time and to support new business processes, is key to its effectiveness. The QAD Enterprise Platform gives manufacturers the ability to rapidly adapt to change and exploit new technologies, ensuring their business processes stay aligned with a rapidly evolving business environment. It provides a device-independent, agile platform that allows customers to expand QAD Cloud ERP's functionality with new capabilities through extensibility, personalization and the ability to write new apps without writing code.
"The pace of change has increased dramatically, making the ability to react quickly a must-have for enterprise applications. The QAD Enterprise Platform is engineered to be agile," said
The QAD Enterprise Platform provides five rapid response technologies, each of which addresses a common cause of ERP solution customization:
"Using the QAD Enterprise Platform, our customers will be able to create apps in days instead of months," said
"QAD has taken the need for ERP agility seriously and architected the QAD Enterprise Platform specifically to accommodate change," said industry analyst
