Enterprise software and services provider QAD has launched Enterprise Applications 2011.1 Enterprise Edition (QAD 2011.1 EE), the latest release of its enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite.
The company said that QAD 2011.1 EE enhances QAD Enterprise Applications suite, spanning updates from foundation-level framework to new product modules, including QAD Monitoring Framework, QAD Business Intelligence (BI) 3.5, Package Exception Management (PEM) 1.0, and QAD Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) 12.4.
With QAD Monitoring Framework, QXtend and QXtend Excelerator enhancements, QAD 2011.1 EE monitors and manages the performance of their system and integration to other applications.
QAD has also developed a new application add-on for its Transportation Management System (TMS) suite called Package Exception Management to enable transparency across the supply chain.
QAD said that Package Exception Management gives customers a portal to track and manage multiple carriers, and provides visibility of shipments through delivery and a proactive communications tool to increase their customer service levels and drive down costs.
QAD further enhances its leading-edge user interface, better supporting role-based usage and further improving user efficiency, said the company.
QAD founder and president Pam Lopker said QAD’s aim is to help manufacturers operate at peak efficiency. "We added and improved many features providing greater visibility and integration throughout the application. We’ve taken further strides in simplifying deployment with QAD 2011.1 and offer both on demand and on premise delivery options," said Lopker.
