“Thanks to IQMS for their zealous support of Jatco, Inc to fill our ERP needs over the years,” said Rex Clement, plant manager for Jatco, Inc., one of IQMS’s first customers. “From the beginning with the DOS version, to the conversion to Windows and beyond, it has been an absolute pleasure to work with the great people that make IQMS what it is today.”

In addition to their dedicated support to the ERP software industry, IQMS promotes active support of its community, providing jobs and assistance to local organizations in need. Due to its growth in 2008, IQMS was able to add new employees to every department.
