IQMS Opens UK Office to Enhance Local Sales and Support

California-headquartered ERP Innovator Brings 20 Year Heritage to UK Manufacturers

Bishop’s Stortford, UK (June 15, 2009) –

IQMS, a leader in the design and development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced that it has opened an office in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire, to provide a direct sales channel to UK manufacturing businesses and enhance support for existing customers in the region. The office opening follows the appointment of Fred Phillips as senior account executive, who brings more than 15 years’ experience servicing ERP solutions across Europe to the company.

Headquartered in Paso Robles, California, and celebrating its 20th birthday this year, IQMS has gained an enviable reputation for providing ERP solutions that drive supply chain excellence and help manufacturers achieve leaner, more cost-effective operations. With an impressive 98 percent customer retention rate, IQMS adds significant value to a range of manufacturing industries worldwide. The company’s customer base in the UK and Ireland already includes Automatic Plastics, Flambeau Europlast, Glazpart, Plasticum, Trend Technologies and VistaMed.

“Over the last year, IQMS has continued to expand strongly, seeing ten percent customer growth despite the tough economic climate,” said Randy Flamm, president and founder, IQMS. “The reason for this is that our technology delivers fast and measurable return on investment for manufacturers, thanks to our strong heritage and continual, customer-driven development. We now look forward to working directly with businesses in the UK, and elsewhere in Europe, to enable them to run more flexibly and increase their bottom-line in these ever-changing times.”

Unlike many other ERP solutions, IQMS’ technology is built with specific manufacturing environments in mind, including medical device, automotive, aerospace, plastics and consumer goods production.

“Multiple European companies are already experiencing the benefits that this unique approach brings,” said Fred Phillips, senior account executive, IQMS. “With our new UK presence, we will continue to support their needs, while enabling more manufacturers to reach new levels of productivity and profitability.”
