PASO ROBLES, CA: IQMS, a leading manufacturing ERP software and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) authority announced its ‘Choice is the New Cloud’ deployment program for its customers. The aim of the program is to address the diverse cloud deployment needs of manufacturers as cloud can be an effective deployment model for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

The Choice is the New Cloud program features three deployment models, Managed, Hosted, and Premise, for the IQMS EnterpriseIQ ERP system that are designed to support the needs of manufacturing firms. Managed Cloud is for customers that want to take advantage of EnterpriseIQ on a subscription basis. The deployment runs in IQMS’ secure, robust cloud-based data center. Hosted Cloud is for manufacturers that want to own their EnterpriseIQ license but take advantage of a hosted cloud deployment. Customers purchase a perpetual license of EnterpriseIQ, which is hosted in IQMS’ cloud-based data center. Premise Cloud is for customers that want to run EnterpriseIQ software in their own data center—either directly on servers or in a private cloud.

Organizations need to balance any cost savings with the flexibility to meet certification requirements and customize their ERP solution to drive innovation and enhance existing operations. Because the IQMS deployment models enable customers to either own the software or act as a single tenant, manufacturers do not have to compromise on control no matter which choice they make.

 “Our manufacturing ERP customers range from established businesses to start-ups to on-shore branches of off-shore companies—each with different IT infrastructure investments and needs,” said Gary Nemmers, IQMS CEO. “With the launch of our Choice is the New Cloud program, we are empowering customers to select the ERP deployment option that best supports their business. Now manufacturers can capitalize on cloud efficiencies without compromising on the application flexibility.”
