Electronic Tablets Provide Green Solution to Track Signatures and Requests Throughout the Manufacturing and Supply Chain

Paso Robles, CA (August 17, 2009) –

IQMS, an innovator in the design and development of manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced the launch of Signature Capture, a new application that employs electronic tablets to store hand written signatures within the ERP system and allows companies to track transactions across the entire enterprise and supply chain.

As the manufacturing industry requires more tracking of personnel, raw material, parts and completed products, Signature Capture allows companies to stay ahead of the tracking process and seamlessly incorporate them into the business. The new application can be used in all areas of the ERP system and provides cost savings with less paperwork and legwork. Signature Capture enables IQMS customers to use an electronic tablet to store signatures as part of Bill of Lading (BOL) documents within IQMS’s flagship ERP software, EnterpriseIQ.

“IQMS Signature Capture highlights our development agility as well as our ability to listen to what our customers want,” said Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS. “This is another great application from our automation group, which keeps close tabs on customer needs and industry trends.”

IQMS’s automation group developed Signature Capture based on requests from customers who were looking for a secure way to obtain and store hand written signature releases within the ERP system. The application works by converting signatures for storage in the database as an attachment to the BOL documents. If the bill is reprinted or viewed at a later time, the signature is part of the document. Signature Capture provides another way for IQMS and EnterpriseIQ to further link the shop and ERP to offer an extended package – all within a single database.

“Signature Capture speeds up the entire process,” said Juan Hernandez, IT manager for Monoflo International, Inc., a leading manufacturer of reusable container systems, which was an original adopter of the product. “We save time and money in shipping and accounting, and it’s great for the environment. This is a serious green solution.”
