This technical information has been contributed byPASO ROBLES, Calif.— IQMS, a developer of manufacturing enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and manufacturing execution systems (MES), recently announced that the HVAC manufacturer Continental Industries, Inc., has selected IQMS to replace its legacy ERP software. Continental Industries, an Elkhart, Indiana-based stamping manufacturer that specializes in design and manufacturing of residential and commercial air outlets, selected IQMS for its production-based design and stamping-specific features and compatibility, according to a release from IQMS.
Stamping Manufacturer Replaces End of Life Software with IQMS ERP
Operating out of two facilities in Elkhart, Indiana (200,000 and 100,000 square feet, respectively), Continental Industries’ growing business was struggling with end of life issues from its current ERP system. Continental Industries had to decide whether to upgrade with its current vendor or start fresh with new ERP software. Looking to eliminate its disjointed systems and hardware and software incompatibilities, the company decided to investigate new ERP vendors.
Having experienced the significant struggles associated with custom ERP programming, Continental Industries sought a package that would work right out of the box. The company selected IQMS because it offered the most production-based package and the manufacturing-specific features needed most for the company’s stamping activities.
“IQMS representatives really listened to our requirements,” said Ben H. Dorsey III, vice president of marketing at Continental Industries, in the release. “They seemed interested in ensuring that their solution was suitable for our needs. The user-friendliness of IQMS’ solution, the ease of data extraction, and the product fit from manufacturing floor to front office all demonstrated the flexibility we sought.”
IQMS provides ERP and manufacturing software to the automotive, medical, packaging, consumer goods, and other manufacturing markets. The company offers a complimentary white paper, “Solving Manufacturing Challenges Caused by Automotive Lightweighting,” that discusses why a comprehensive, automotive-specific ERP program is needed to address lightweighting challenges.
