EnterpriseIQ Manufacturing ERP gets a Boost with the Launch of WebIQ Browser-Based UI

By CIOReview | Tuesday, April 12, 2016

LAS VEGAS, NV: IQMS, a provider of solutions for manufacturing ERP and manufacturing execution system (MES), announced the availability of new interface for IQMS’ EnterpriseIQ manufacturing ERP system, coined WebIQ. The underlying aim behind the user interface (UI) design is to facilitate users with the ability to operate it from any device harboring a standard browser and Internet connection. This latest introduction will allow IQMS’s customers to access EnterpriseIQ anywhere from computer, mobile phone or tablet of choice. The announcement was made at Pinnacle, IQMS’ user conference, an event that witnessed the presence of manufacturing executives, ERP technical experts, and industry thought leaders in 40 sessions examining manufacturing technology and business best practices.

 “Manufacturers face an increasingly mobile workforce in which employees are using their notebook computers, tablets and smartphones for work at the office, on the shop floor, at home, and on the road,” said Gary Nemmers, President and CEO, IQMS. “With WebIQ, our customers will now have a single Web-based interface for accessing our EnterpriseIQ software from any location using the device that best supports their needs.”

Based on HTML5 and JavaScript, WebIQ helps to recreate the existing EnterpriseIQ UI. One prime aspect about the interface is that it eliminates the need to update client-side software or maintain terminal services functionality, which in turn helps manufacturers to remove a significant layer of IT expenditure. Additionally, the interface exhibits flexibility to use an array of popular devices and Web browsers.

An interesting facet about WebIQ is that users don’t have to learn new stokes or procedures as the solution provides a one-to-one function match with the existing UI. Current EnterpriseIQ users have the option to adopt the new interface gradually or all at once, because of WebIQ’s ability to mix and match with IQMS’ current UI. The solution has been currently employed for field-testing, and will be generally available this year.
