US-based manufacturing software company QAD recently released QAD Adaptive ERP, part of its QAD Adaptive Applications software suite, as it prepares for a future with 5G-connected factories.
QAD is a leading provider of flexible, cloud-based enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies across the automotive, life sciences, consumer products, food and beverage, high technology and industrial manufacturing industries. QAD’s Adaptive Applications portfolio is headlined by QAD Adaptive ERP and features secure and flexible enterprise and supply chain solutions built for global manufacturing companies. It has done business in India since 2005 and employs 250 people in its Mumbai office.
QAD Adaptive ERP is built on the QAD Enterprise Platform, which enables companies to prepare for and better address industry change by updating and extending the software to meet current business needs. Manufacturing companies, suppliers and customers have become increasingly interconnected and data-driven over a common network, a trend that is expected to be accelerated with the adoption of 5G technology. QAD Adaptive ERP allows users to react quickly to new trends and leverage them for competitive advantage.
“5G should allow companies to access larger amounts of data more quickly from smart products,” said QAD Chief Technology Officer Tony Winter. “The technology is still evolving, but eventually it will be stable and reliable enough for industrial uses. QAD’s adaptive solutions are prepared for smart manufacturing featuring machines connected through a network of IoT-capable devices.”
“The Indian manufacturing industry is set to undergo an important transformation with the arrival of 5G,” said Mr. Jan Biezepol, QAD managing director, South Asia. “Therefore, we have a focused business approach to help Indian customers leverage technology disruption.”
