Stern IQMS review

2010-08-31

I would recommend IQMS to someone looking for a system to cover a wide variety of processes-from inventory management, BOM's, accounting, etc.

Pros

The jump feature is fantastic and a real time saver!

Cons

The accounting module seems to be a little weak. Some of the payroll setup is difficult to implement and maintain.

Searching for the right ERP solution

2019-10-23

The beginning has been slow as many decisions for process flow and paperless reporting to drive the system.

Pros

The purchase order module is robust as it handles both inventory from MRP and MRO requirements.

Cons

The Asset Management module does not meet GAAP requirements for auditing but it can assist the Preventative Maintenance group with purchasing history.

IQMS is an Excellent Choice for Manufacturing ERP & MES

2019-01-15

The data that we are collecting, especially with the real-time MES has allowed us to get a handle on our real performance for inventory control, labor efficiency, and scrap so we have been able to improve those (after learning we were really worse than we thought once we had indisputable data vs staff recording data in our old system.

Pros

In addition, the IQMS MES system is seamless and provides valuable data in Real-Time.

Cons

The financial package does not have great 'drill down' capability for variances if you use the standard costing vs actual costing. However, the newest version does have this capability but I have not used it yet.

IQMS Software Review

2019-01-15

We are currently using IQMS for all our activities as mentioned above.

Pros

Quoting, production reporting, inventory , shipping accounting and more.

Cons

It seems that things may change based on a suggestion, which is good, but I wonder if it a majority or a squeaky wheel. To be specific, there was a fairly recent change which made entering a quote due date mandatory. This can get annoying as you are going along in the quote and get stopped to add a due date and have to return to the 1st page.

How did we function before IQMS?

2010-07-19

We have confidence in the data and reports we pull out of IQMS, which is priceless.

Pros

One system that contains everything we need to run the business, instead of the multiple data bases and software packages we used previously. The real time interface- allowing users to see production information as it is happening.

Cons

I am afraid we may be missing some new feature or change because we don't know it is there.

One common database for information. Real time information.

Pros

Being specifically designed for the plastics industry helps find pertinent data easily.

Cons

I wish there were more standard reports with more descriptive titles and that the necessary report parameters would be highlighted.

Satisfied long time customer

2019-01-11

As stated, IQ helps significantly with timely access to data and standards compliance. Overall, we are a very satisfied 20 year customer.

Pros

The accurate records and ease of access is a big plus for standards compliance and financial record keeping and reporting.

Cons

As you accumulate large amounts of data and more data has to go back and forth between the machine and server, it slows down.

IQ. Small company personal service, pricing and a product better than most giants.

2010-08-25

Superb. We spent over three years looking for a ERP system that would balance manufacturing and finance requirements and be able to cope with all the challenges related to injection moulding. We chose IQ and after six years of use have not regretted that decision once.

Pros

True Real Time data direct from the shop floor in a format that is quick to review and act on.

Cons

Like other systems Its only as good as the data entered.

IQMS for what?

2019-01-09

This is used as a single system to manage quotes, sales orders, purchase orders, inventory management, manufacturing, etc.

Pros

This allows us to house our CRM, Inventory Management and Manufacturing tracking in one system.

Cons

There has to be a fully trained admin to run the software. We have one, which means whoever has the highest priority gets their edits, this is not always great for all team members. When there are updates it wipes out all your previous user settings.

First ERP System

2019-01-11

Our company had never had an ERP system. Every thing was done on home grown systems or excel. Needless to say this was a big change. There was some grips when we went live, but you couldn't pay people to go back to the old systems.

Pros

I log the Translog which records every inventory transaction thus allowing us to quickly analyze activity.

Cons

It is not possible to back date inventory transactions.

EnterpriseIQ - The Ultimate ERP Solution

2010-06-28

I would highly recommend EnterpriseIQ. The staff at IQMS is a pleasure to work with and extremely accessible. IQMS listens to their users and allow them to have a great amount of input into enhancements to EnterpriseIQ. When there is a question as to how users feel about an enhancement that another user suggests, it is put to a user vote. This is done online so that users don't have to wait until a user group meeting to vote. IQMS hosts Users Group meetings that are very informative and helpful for networking with other users. With many tools that IQMS has provided to their users, users can easily pose questions to a user forum and get a quick response. EnterpriseIQ is a great ERP solution that should not be passed by!

Pros

MRP is easy to use and provides users with real-time availability and requirements through the use of finite scheduling.

Cons

The only issue that we have had with EnterpriseIQ is trying to integrate biometric fingerprint readers to use as our means of collecting attendance.

EnterpriseIQ - The Intelligent Choice

2010-05-28

It is very strong in Scheduling, Quality, CRM, Real-Time Press Monitoring, Warehouse/Inventory Management, and Asset Management, as well as the core ERP functions (AR, AP, etc.)

Pros

IQMS comes with many pre-written reports and customization is relatively easy with CR.

Cons

In the grand scheme of things, relative to other ERP systems, there are few drawbacks to IQMS, and no showstoppers for NBP. Occasionally the MRP engine creates a work order that doesn't seem to have any demand, so sometimes I have to evaluate the need for an order manually to be sure. Security/permissions for the system is a bit cumbersome at times, but IQMS has improved that recently and continues to work on it. Alerts seems to be a bit unstable. I don't know if that is a widespread issue or unique to us, but I frequently have to restart the app. We have not been able to get IQ to fit our needs for quoting, but in all fairness our system is fairly elaborate. We also found the Workforce module to be weak.

Data Driven Buisness Soltuions

The software has all of the key components for manufacturing and is designed for the plastics industry.

Pros

If you are diligent in utilizing IQMS in all of your enterprise activities (scheduling, accounting, quality, etc.) the wealth of data is easy to locate, report, and analyze.

Cons

Since IQMS has been able to find a solution to every challenge I've posed, I cannot identify a specific con.

IQMS has become part of PRISM, and handles our processes for business from quote to invoice.

2017-09-15

Helps run out business and give us quick access to all data to help manage our business on a hourly/daily basis.

Pros

Real-Time integration, and our ability to utilize IQAlert and SmartPage for Real-Time display of metric data.

Cons

Updates over the last few years have broke functions that have caused problems. Seems like more effort needs to be put into software testing and debug before service packs are implemented.

IQMS ERP Review

2012-06-27

IQMS is an excellent system for manufacturers of plastic products. We investigated a number of different ERP systems before deciding on IQMS and couldn't be happier with the results.

Pros

IQMS replaced multiple independent systems in our organization including MRP, real time, reporting, asset management, preventative maintenance, and more.

Cons

- The Outsource Central module may be the only module that has not met our expectations, particularly regarding how inventory transactions are handled

New User, Not Yet Implemented

2012-05-18

Real Time, we want it, we can't wait to start using it.

Pros

Work Order Summary is a great quick review of jobs Jumping from the WO to the BOM to Inventory or the SO is so quick and easy for access and information availability Assy Track is a wonderful tool for tracking progress especially when a customer is on the phone and needs an answer immediately

Cons

Just thinking about Finite scheduling our jobs makes everyone want to take a permanent vacation. We are so unique in what we do that we may never get there. However, if we do wander over to that function we expect that we will like what we see.

IQMS: the silver bullet of ERP software?

2010-07-27

Take your time and make sure you define your needs/wants well.

Pros

Many automation options from order entry (EDI) to real time scheduling on the floor, to labeling and shipping out the door.

Cons

No real cons that wouldn't apply generally to all other ERP software (for example, the cost of annual maintenance and license pricing model, better tools for monitoring license usage, cumbersome security, and the upgrade process).
