QAD Revolutionizes Business Transformation and Operations with Launch of Industrial Transformation Platform

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., February 27, 2024 /BUSINESS WIRE/ --

QAD Inc., a leading provider of next-generation manufacturing and supply chain solutions in the cloud, announced the launch of its Industrial Transformation Platform, a cutting-edge initiative designed to redefine global business operations and empower organizations on their journey to becoming Adaptive Enterprises.

The Industrial Transformation Platform, also known as the O³ Platform, represents a significant leap forward in QAD's commitment to providing more than just enterprise software. It is a comprehensive approach aimed at optimizing People, Processes, and Systems, to help foster a transformative journey for manufacturers and supply chains seeking operational excellence and world class productivity.

"Sustainable business performance in the manufacturing and supply chain industries of today depends upon an organization’s ability to balance efficiency with agility and resilience. Our Industrial Transformation Platform is designed to help companies do exactly that,” said QAD Chief Executive Officer Anton Chilton. “Operational excellence and world class productivity are only achieved by the harmonious synchronization of processes, systems and people. Our O3 approach helps customers optimize these three critical elements in their business through the prescriptive application of best practices supported by our expertise, experience and world class technology portfolio. It’s all about harnessing that technology and best practice to empower and engage people, supporting intelligent decision making and positive action, in real time.”

QAD’s Industrial Transformation Platform provides a range of elements and support for organizations including deep industry and domain expertise, accelerated implementations, frontline worker coaching, holistic manufacturing and supply chain solutions, connected workforce capabilities, process intelligence, an upgrade-friendly platform, and pragmatic AI that works with humans instead of replacing them – all created to solve real-world problems.

“Today, businesses are confronted with challenges such as labor shortages, decreased labor productivity and increasing input costs. Our Industrial Transformation Platform addresses these issues, guiding businesses through not only immediate transformation needs but also in becoming an Adaptive Enterprise to meet tomorrow's challenges,” added Chilton.

QAD's Industrial Transformation Platform supports suppliers, customers, manufacturers and supply chain participants to address challenges comprehensively, providing a holistic approach to solving root causes rather than merely offering software solutions.

To assist companies in their journey towards becoming Adaptive Enterprises, QAD will also introduce a maturity model and diagnostic tool focused on balancing efficiency, agility and resilience.

"The Industrial Transformation Platform was born out of the recognition that systems alone are not enough to optimize an enterprise. Software is meant to support processes which in turn support people. Companies don’t want to buy enterprise software, they want better outcomes than they currently have, software is only a means to an end," said QAD Chief Product & Marketing Officer Carter Lloyds. “A successful project requires a focus on people, process, and systems; the same focus which is the foundation for the Adaptive Enterprise.”
