QAD Inc., a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, announced today that Amtico International, a global manufacturer of premium resilient flooring, has gone live with QAD Cloud ERP at seven of its international facilities.
Part of United States-based Mannington Mills, Inc. since 2012, Amtico International is headquartered in the United Kingdom with facilities in Germany, France, Sweden and Hong Kong. It employs approximately 500 people around the world.
Amtico has used QAD ERP on-premise for a number of years across its global sites to support its business expansion and growth. As a global manufacturer, Amtico recognized that it could improve its operational efficiency and realize cost savings by migrating its ERP solution to the cloud at its facilities in the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Hong Kong.
By migrating to QAD Cloud ERP, Amtico International receives specific benefits including:
Time for its IT staff to concentrate on strategic projects instead of on maintaining the company’s ERP solution.
The establishment of an easily scalable platform upon which the company can implement further system and process improvements.
The ability to easily implement the solution at other sites in the future.
The ability to easily add users and country-specific compliance, language and support functionality.
“QAD has been a trusted partner for many years, and we depend on their manufacturing expertise,” said Andrew Elsby-Smith, group finance director of Amtico International. “QAD Cloud ERP gives us a global, flexible and scalable solution that can evolve as Amtico continues to grow. Migrating from on-premise to the cloud was relatively easy. We didn’t have to spend hours retraining staff because QAD Cloud ERP has the same intuitive user interface as the on-premise version.”
QAD Cloud ERP is a full-featured ERP with extensive multi-GAAP and internationalization capabilities. QAD Cloud ERP scales to thousands of users. The associated development and support processes are ISO certified, data centers are SSAE 16 compliant and support is available 24x7x365 globally in 12 languages, staffed by QAD.
“Amtico is a tremendous example of a forward-looking corporation, well prepared to meet future growth challenges by leveraging the inherent benefits of cloud technology,” said J.C. Walravens, senior vice president of QAD Europe, Middle East and Africa. “As Amtico continues to grow globally, QAD Cloud ERP will allow them to scale quickly and efficiently without having to add staff or invest in new equipment. Deploying QAD Cloud ERP is more than a deployment decision. It is a strategic choice that helps propel companies on the path to becoming an Effective Enterprise.”
