Ultimately, they chose IQMS’ EnterpriseIQ, due to its ability to deliver manufacturing-specific functionality and automotive industry requirements in a single-database system. “Since installing EnterpriseIQ, we have optimized operations to secure additional business from our customer, eliminated shipping errors, improved internal and customer communications, reduced maintenance costs by more than 70 percent, and eliminated excess data entry,” extols Mike Hopkins, production material control and MIS manager at Nissen Chemitec America.

The firm’s success lies in building long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships with its employees, customers, vendors and partners by developing trust, supporting goals, achieving measurable results, and encouraging the capabilities and success of their employees. With a special focus on ERP, manufacturing, software, and supply chain management, IQMS is expanding their business and partners in U.S, Mexico and Europe. From wireless and mobile capabilities to the ever increasing need for instantaneous visibility, collaboration and communication, IQMS’s EnterpriseIQ will continue to secure a strategic place in manufacturing as the only total, enterprise-wide solution. “Our new version of EnterpriseIQ software comprises about 550 enhancements ranging from financial management, shop floor control, quality, and supply chain management,” concludes Bieszczat.
