What do you like best?

Versatility within QAD ERP allows business to take their individual business processes and easily fit QAD to support, from Fixed Asset Management to Managing thousands of customers via their rich Service and Support Module. Having one System to enable Manufacturing, Engineering, Finance, Global Supply Chain and Customer Operations eliminates the need for costly bolt on systems as well as an extremely low cost of ownership relating to Business Analysts and IT infrastructure. It's User Interface might not be the most sexy to the e-suite, but they don't use the system. Functionally rich system and allows quick uptake relating to user adoption is the key strength of QAD ERP.

QAD Support Services are a strength, compared to other ERP Vendors, you can pick up a phone, live chat, submit web based support tickets and even utilize their knowledge base for software questions as well as business use scenarios, cutting direct support costs but more importantly cutting time to solve your individual challenge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Although every system has it's drawbacks, there is not one system that fits all. If one improvement was needed I would suggesting focusing more attention on integration and product robustness with regards to QAD's QMS (Cebos) system as Quality and Regulatory is a large concerning within my industry (Pharma) it becomes extremely important this offering becomes more focused in this area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Reporting and Dashboards are cute, but functionally what is important for an ERP System, quick access, easy data entry, and ability to retrieve data to make business decisions, for these objectives, QAD has always hit the mark, and hit it well. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With the QAD Partners, we have been able to solve many business challenges, the Core QAD ERP has enabled us to become nimble operation, with Manufacturing - mixed mode, process and Global Supply Chain. QAD's womb-to-tomb lot and serialization provides a level of insight to all product lineage. We have mobile (iPhone, etc.) automating our Purchase Requisitions, Field Support Engineers and soon the entire global clinical group will be utilize QAD as it's system of record. Our total time to implement was shorter than I've experienced with any other ERP products, thus moving our operation forward to support customers and the business.

QAD's commitment to enhancing and improving the user's ability to utilize the software to manage their enterprise by allowing the customization of the screens to adapt to user rather than the user adapting to QAD. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Probably the only comment is that all platforms including CRM,ERP and Sales tools are on the same platform.

Quite reasonable in turning quotes into orders, and pretty diverse reporting capability. The fact that all functions are on the same platform is definitely of potential benefit to organisations as it allows complete access if necessary to all functions round a single client ID. This includes quotes, credit history and previous sales history coupled with the CRM PROFILE which does provide a potentially reasonable overview Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is inflexible, costly to customise and very limited in our revision in terms of Internet interaction.

Also has a menu structure that is insanely large and some of the menu descriptions don reflect the actual function. Also a comment on the CRM. It is far to structured and difficult to manoeuvre around in the various profiles and address requirements to be of significant benefit to sales teams. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be mindful of what you are trying to achieve. In its own right QAD is probably a very good ERP solution. However it suffers when you try to add sales functionality and CRM to it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Probably limited solutions at this time but mainly interaction between sales history and product forecasting is one of the better ones. Additionally the turning of quotes into sales orders is basically a single function solution so very useful. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I like that its has some customization, the huge selections of modules, and the support team is great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

QAD is a very proprietary program, so if you have in-house IT you need to make sure that they are knowledgeable with Linux and Open Edge Progress. It can become very costly to maintain if you do not have in-house knowledge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be mindful of the support and training required for product. Its also a very costly software to license on a per user basis Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We use QAD at our company and love it. It is a very robust ERP suite that handles our life science requirements very well. Getting our information in and out is great. They are truly an innovative ERP company that doesn't have the same "attitude" as some of the other ERP vendors I have worked with. When it is integrated with Salesforce.com, it met nearly all of our requirements. Well done! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is an on-premise application--in the world of mobile devices, we need to see more rapid development of mobile applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're looking at this review, you probably have done a lot of homework already--just make sure you know what you're looking for. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
