Business Segments Description



QAD products and services support the business processes of global manufacturing companies in our target industries. We continually monitor emerging business requirements and practices as well as regulatory changes and incorporate them into our product and solutions strategies. Our development focus emphasizes user experience. We strive to deliver solutions that offer comprehensive capabilities while being easier to learn and use. Our goal is to make all capabilities that a particular user needs available with only a few clicks, giving our end users significant gains in efficiency as well as making the user experience more enjoyable.

The Channel Islands program was designed to transform the architecture and user experience of QAD solutions. Channel Islands has two key components: Channel Islands Experience and the QAD Enterprise Platform.

The Channel Islands Experience provides access to QAD Enterprise Applications on any device with a modern web browser. It includes a new user interface (“UI”) written in HTML5 and is accessible to the user with any standard browser. The new UI provides seamless access across desktops and mobile devices and has the ability to co-exist with our current .NET UI.

The QAD Enterprise Platform is the architecture behind Channel Islands. The benefits it provides to customers make it the most significant part of the solution. Manufacturers need an Enterprise Resource Planning (“ERP”) system that will allow them to easily change their business processes to meet the demands of their changing market. The QAD Enterprise Platform provides five rapid response capabilities: Personalization; Embedded Analytics; Modularization; Extensibility; and New Apps. Most critically, these capabilities include the ability to extend current applications, to connect with external systems through micro services, and to develop entirely new applications on the platform without the need to write or modify code in QAD Enterprise Applications. Extensions and new apps are non-intrusive to the enterprise applications and do not hinder future upgrades. Modularity provides the ability to upgrade the solution by components, rather than upgrading the entire solution at one time. This makes upgrades smaller, faster and easier; helping customers stay on the most current version of our software which reduces the gap between their business needs and what our enterprise applications provide. Modularity allows us to improve the efficiency of our cloud operations using a simplified upgrade process. The architecture eases the adoption of new advanced technologies into the solution.

Mobile devices continue to play an ever-increasing role in our day-to-day lives, and our customers are using mobile computing to support their businesses. Channel Islands leverages a responsive HTML5 user interface that displays appropriately across screen sizes. As such, Channel Islands is available on any device with a modern web browser, including tablets and smartphones. In addition, QAD provides some mobile specific applications purpose-built for the actions users are likely to take on their mobile devices. These include a requisition approval solution, a mobile business intelligence solution, mobile browse capability and mobile application monitoring tools to support system administrators.

In support of our focus on business process efficiency, we have integrated the ability to generate business process maps for common business processes into our software using the QAD Process Editor tool. This tool simplifies implementations, maps common business processes and facilitates navigation throughout the entire product suite. Within our suite, we have embedded business process management (“QAD BPM”). QAD BPM allows customers to visualize their business processes; monitor transactional throughput by user, role or stage; and modify those processes to make them more efficient. Using QAD BPM, companies can create business process models, assign task responsibilities, and monitor and re-direct workflow; all of which reduce process execution time, improve visibility of active processes, identify bottlenecks and support process improvement.

QAD developed its solutions to allow simple integration with other systems our customers use within their organizations. For example, we enable seamless integration between QAD Enterprise Applications and common browser applications and spreadsheets. QAD solutions also integrate easily with other web applications and web services. Using our Q-Xtend toolset, customers can connect to different software, even when remote, and they can use industry-standard middleware products such as the IBM MQ™ series or the standard connectors built on the Dell Boomi AtomSphere integration platform. Robust Application Program Interfaces (“APIs”) along with QAD Automation Solutions provide additional capabilities for integration.

QAD Enterprise Applications

QAD Enterprise Applications is an integrated suite of software applications, which supports the core business processes of global manufacturing companies, and provides specific functionality to support the requirements of our targeted industries and the geographies in which our customers conduct business. QAD Enterprise Applications allows customers to monitor, control and support their operations, whether operating a single plant or multiple sites, wherever they are located around the world.

QAD Enterprise Applications has strong capabilities for addressing global complexities in customers’ business models, such as compliance with local accounting practices and legislation, as well as internal reporting on global performance. QAD Enterprise Applications includes full support for multiple currencies, multiple languages and complex corporate structures such as multiple companies or divisions.

QAD Enterprise Applications is available in the cloud, on-premise and in a blended model combining both of these deployment alternatives. Blended deployment enables users to transact more easily across business entities with a consistent interface and consistent functionality since our cloud and on-premise technology is compatible. Companies that have chosen the cloud as a strategic direction but who cannot, or do not want to, move all locations at one time, find the blended deployment model allows them to transition to the cloud with less risk. The finance function can view individual business unit results and run consolidations that cross both cloud and on-premise sites seamlessly, while other users can transact and view inventory in multiple locations irrespective of whether any specific business entity is operating in the cloud or on- premise.

QAD Enterprise Applications is comprised of the following software solutions:

QAD Financials

QAD Financials provides comprehensive capabilities to manage and control finance and accounting processes at a local, regional and global level. The suite supports multi-company, multi-currency, multi-language and multi-tax jurisdictions, as well as consolidated reporting and budgeting controls. These capabilities give cross-functional stakeholders access to financial results; enabling faster, more informed decision making while providing robust internal controls. Enterprise Financials includes multi-GAAP support, such as International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”), as well as extensive local tax capture, reporting capabilities and segregation of duties enforcement.

QAD Customer Management

QAD Customer Management enables global manufacturing companies to acquire new customers efficiently, grow revenue through multiple channels and retain customers through superior service and support.

The manufacturing models supported include Discrete, Repetitive, Kanban (particularly relevant in lean manufacturing practices), Flow, Batch/Formula, Process, Co-products/By-products and Configured Products. The system also includes flexible item attributes that customers can use to track lot characteristics or test results. The Lot Trace Workbench provides insight into any products component genealogy and greatly simplifies product recalls. QAD Manufacturing supports companies’ deployment of business processes consistent with their industry’s best practices. The integration between scheduling, planning, execution, quality and materials allows tight control and simple management of processes.

QAD Automation Solutions

QAD Automation Solutions improves manufacturers’ material transaction processing accuracy and efficiency by aligning QAD Enterprise Applications with material and production processes. There are two primary components to QAD Automation Solutions:


Data Collection captures material and production data through simplified transactions using a mobile device such as a radio frequency (RF) scanner, tablet or a stationary shop floor personal computer or terminal.


Label Printing Services routs and prints labels associated with material and production transactions based on manufacturer, supplier, customer and industry specified formats and rules.

These capabilities help manufacturers better align their material logistics processes in a timely fashion while ensuring inventory accuracy through process compliance.

QAD Demand and Supply Chain Planning

QAD Demand and Supply Chain Planning (“QAD DSCP”) is a comprehensive group of applications built on a single unified model to fulfill the materials planning and logistics requirements of global companies.

This solution set delivers functionality and capabilities that help enterprises optimize their supply chains to enhance customer satisfaction through timely deliveries. Enterprises can align supply and demand to support the delivery of the right product, to the right place, at the right time and at the most efficient cost. The suite utilizes the DynaSys Single Click Collaborative platform, with the entire planning model running in a memory-resident database supporting real-time planning. The suite supports planning for demand, production, procurement, distribution and global sales and operations. Customers have used this solution with data sets that exceed a million SKUs. QAD Demand and Supply Chain Planning addresses both simple and complex networks; and customers have the ability to add more advanced functionality as the enterprise grows. Collaborative portals are available for both demand and supply sides to help ensure rapid communication of demand or supply fluctuations and to enable collaborative planning.

QAD Supply Chain Execution

QAD's Supply Chain Execution suite includes tools to support inventory and warehouse management in either simple or complex warehousing environments. For example, the QAD Warehousing tool supports complex warehouse-management techniques such as bulk, batch and wave picking, as well as multiple put away methods including calculations based on required space. It manages reusable packaging and containers to help eliminate waste and reduce costs. Additionally, QAD Enterprise Applications manages consignment inventory for both consignors and consignees, and supports strategic sourcing and purchasing. The system manages distribution requirements planning to optimize and balance inventories at multiple distribution centers which enables quick and cost effective demand fulfillment.
