IQMS Identified as a Notable Vendor in Gartner Report on Manufacturing Execution Systems for Consumer Goods/Food and Beverage

IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and manufacturing execution system (MES) authority, today announced that it has been recognized in the Gartner report, Consumer Goods/Food and Beverage Context: ‘Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems.’ In the report, Gartner identifies IQMS as one of four Notable Vendors.

The Gartner Consumer Goods/Food and Beverage Context: ‘Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems’ report1 notes that, “Traditionally, the main differentiators for consumer products manufacturing in the manufacturing execution systems (MES) market are speed and flexibility in support of high-volume manufacturing. MES in consumer packaged goods (CPG) both drive and are driven by highly automated factories, producing tens of thousands of units of product. This is an industry that has thin margins, and has been reluctant to invest in MES unless there's necessity and clearly defined returns. Flexibility is required to support both the tradition of high-volume manufacturing and the emerging challenge of more variants and personalization — the inflated mix of high mix, high volume.”

“We have taken a holistic approach to our IQMS ERP software by building in native MES functionality and using a single database to handle both business and manufacturing operations. In doing so, we have empowered our customers with a unified view across their manufacturing operations and supply chain that enables them to compete effectively in meeting today’s demands for high quality, increasing customization, and faster production,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “We believe being named by Gartner as a notable vendor in the Consumer Goods/Food and Beverage Context: ‘Magic Quadrant for Manufacturing Execution Systems’ report reinforces the value that our IQMS system brings to manufacturers.”

IQMS Integrated System for MES and ERP

IQMS software uniquely combines robust MES and ERP functionality into one comprehensive solution in which all data—from systems and Internet of Things (IoT) sensors on the shop floor to the back office—is managed by the same embedded Oracle database. This empowers manufacturing enterprises to take a streamlined approach to centralizing activity across the supply chain and ensuring that complete, accurate information is available to all authorized users at all times.

Through IQMS’s Choice is the New Cloud™ program, customers have access to three deployment models designed for the needs of manufacturing firms. Software as a Service is for customers that want to take advantage of IQMS via a cloud-based subscription. Managed Cloud is for manufacturers that want to own their IQMS license but run it in a hosted cloud deployment. Premise is for customers that want to run IQMS software in their own data center—either on servers or in a private cloud.

Additionally, IQMS delivers IQMS for Oracle Cloud Backup, which eliminates the need to manually backup data while providing secured offsite storage, and IQMS Web BI, which features rich, cloud-based business intelligence and visualization functionality from Oracle that helps manufacturers gain greater insights into their data. The cloud services are available to all manufacturing customers, whether they have IQMS software deployed on-premises or in the cloud hosted by IQMS.
