As far as the manufacturing side IQMS does a good job. It is when you get outside the manufacturing that you run into issues. The HR and reporting functions are not nearly as robust as other software that I have used.

Pros

Pro -IQMS is a good manufacturing system. The labeling functionality is very good and helps support tracing the origins of all the parts we manufacture.

Cons

Con- Once you leave the manufacturing area, performance and customer service for this area really drops off. One of the weaker HR, payroll, training and reporting systems I have ever worked with.

We have been using IQMS for almost an year now. It has been great for creating a central source of all of our needs.

Pros

Convenient: One source solution with TONS of features.
Robust: Created for manufacturing and covers more than all our needs as an injection molding company.
Good support. Known issues constantly addressed. GREAT community support available.

Cons

Expensive. High initial cost (for a small company), annual support and maintenance costs, additional training costs
Complex. In order to be so encompassing the software can be difficult to understand initially. We are constantly learning more about what it has to offer and how it can be best utilized for our needs.

We are a mid size assembly company that chose IQMS after a long selection process. I can't review a whole lot right now because we are still in the build process and have a go live date in March.

Pros

Navigation in the software is by far superior to most of what I have seen before. The way you can jump between modules and drill down are major time savers for us.

Cons

We have ran into quite a few software bugs. The set up of the system is a very very long process much longer then we anticipated. We were told the Time and Attendance module would work for us and now we have figured out that is not true.

Advice to Others

I would recommend IQMS as of right now. It seems like a stable platform and very user friendly. They have awesome support between the myIQMS site and live tech reps it is great to know they are looking out for you.

Pros

We installed the EnterpriseIQ software in 2013 with a Go-Live in 9 months. The implementation was on time and on budget. We then spent 2014 taking advantage of the initial software modules.

In 2015 we purchased the RealTime Production and Process Monitoring hardware and software which was implemented over the next few months. We now have the ability to capture cycles, record scrap and monitor processing parameters as they occur while the press is running.

Cons

IQMS has experienced a lot of growth these past few years so we have dealt with a lot of different people from our account representative, to EDI support, to helpline support personnel. With this growth the knowledge of the products and responsiveness has declined.

It Does everything we need

Pros

Software has everything we need, Plus some. Very customizable for any customers needs. Once it's up and running not much you need to do with it.

Cons

Patching and your updates are terrible and when you apply KI's that will introduce other issues. What it comes to support you don't know what you're going to get. I feel like your engineers some know your product very well others I won't talk to.

Overall functionality seems conducive to manufacturing companies. The "Pros" are simply that it works. That's really about it. I would not have chosen this software if I wasn't involved in the decision making process.

Cons

As a mid-size business with global locations, this ERP was really a lifeline. The price tags on the big ERPs are untenable and often don't support the unique needs of a lean manufacturer. It's not the prettiest system out there, but I appreciate the flexibility and the fact that IQMS is dedicated to improving the software.

Pros

The system is very flexible to many processes and industry requirements. The company really uses user feedback to help drive software enhancements and support fixes. You get a lot of functionality for very low cost. The implementation process was well managed and we were able to go-live ahead of schedule and under budget. Not many ERP implementations can boast that.

Cons

There are sometimes too many available options and ways to use the system. It can drive you to implement a process in one module that inadvertently limits your usage of other modules. Navigating how the system works as a whole is often unclear and can be frustrating - not knowing that checking this box over here affects something over there that you were not even thinking about. The last few years of growth have been painful from a tech support standpoint, as they can't keep up with hiring and training and you often have to train the support person how the system works before you can even discuss a bug or issue you are facing.

Pros

The depth and breadth of the program is impressive. I like the flexibly of use from a small section of manufacturing process, to using it fully from quoting, production and quality testing. Consistency but continued expansion of the IQMS program is appreciated (I am a user since 2004). Help desk can be very responsive when it comes to problems/questions arising. If it is a major problem they will `take you by the hand¿ solve it with you. With the interface I appreciate the ability to jump from window to window to window. I also appreciate it is a multi-window program.

Cons

The structure of the database not being directly linked to the naming scheme of the interface can be frustrating when creating reports or finding problems. The structure of security section is hard to manage (groups and sections instead of individual profiles and direct security approvals). Not being able to easily substitute alternative items in the BOMs/Work orders can be a hindrance to accurate consumption. Also the structure of the consumption can be awkward.
If a change is needed to the program a committee gathers once a year to vote on the focus of the upgrades and improvements, is the process to update errors to the computer system, instead of a more instant solution (though if it is obvious they will fix it sooner).

Helps run out business and give us quick access to all data to help manage our business on a hourly/daily basis.

Pros

Real-Time integration, and our ability to utilize IQAlert and SmartPage for Real-Time display of metric data.

Cons

Updates over the last few years have broke functions that have caused problems. Seems like more effort needs to be put into software testing and debug before service packs are implemented.

We use the software to run our entire company.

Pros

IQMS has adapted to meet the needs of our customer requirements that are constantly evolving. They have also put forth a good effort to make enhancements to the system to improve or add functionality to the software for a better manufacturing ERP experience.

Cons

Upgrades can be a lot on the rough side. Even with testing prior to going live there are things that happen that should not. I am not sure if is a always a live load situation that provides the challenge, but there has been an increase with issues happening in the upgrade process. Support has also taken a hit over the past couple of years. Level 1 support is lacking on anything but basic issues. If there is anything complex, good luck. Also, if anything happens outside the normal front end interface about 50% of support won't even attempt to help you and the customer is on their own.

One common database for information. Real time information. Covers all aspects of our business.

Pros

Being specifically designed for the plastics industry helps find pertinent data easily. IQMS listens to the users and will make modifications to meet user's requests.

Cons

I wish there were more standard reports with more descriptive titles and that the necessary report parameters would be highlighted. While I'm very conversant with the accounting and financial reports, it's using reports from other modules that I could use more information on.

Increased ability to schedule and monitor a wide variety and volume of orders. We try to run our business as much as we can with this software.

Pros

The Real-time live production monitoring is great. The scheduling is strong. The "jump" feature across most modules it great. The context-specific help is good. Smart-page is good.

Cons

The forced blanket orders for sales and purchase orders is cumbersome and seems complex. MRP is a bit scattered and could be streamlined.

A full ERP Suite of modules to operate the business for an end to end software solution.

Pros

Ability to highly customize System Parameters, Modules, and Reports in order to meet/exceed departmental goals and needs, Oracle Database, Crystal Reports, intuitive interface and flow throughout the system.

Cons

As with any highly configurable system, it's takes time to learn for proficiency. System users must be committed and spend the necessary time to learn their modules.

The ease of use. Very easy to get around and the ability to right click and jump from screen to screen let's you keep moving forward without having to close stuff out and start back up.

Cons

I would say Customer Support - Seems like we have to talk to several people before we can get things figured out. Would also like to get information about upgrades and when they're available. Supposedly, our version is like 3 versions behind, which could possibly be causing some of our issues? Would be nice to get some information on this.
