QAD Inc. a leading provider of cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions and services for global manufacturers, announced today that nearly half (45 percent) of QAD Cloud ERP customer sites exist as part of a blended deployment. Customer-defined security allows users to easily transact across business entities with complete visibility, consistent functionality and the same user interface. In addition, in a blended deployment the finance team can view both individual business unit results and run consolidations that cross their cloud and on premise sites seamlessly.
Automotive industry customers with a larger number of sites or sites in emerging regions are the most likely to take advantage of the blended deployment option. Blended deployment allows them adequate time to transition to the cloud or to enable opening their new facilities quickly.
“We believe cloud is the future of ERP. We provide our customers with the ability to transition to the cloud at their own pace. We believe they are each on their own path to becoming an Effective Enterprise,” said Carter Lloyds, Chief Marketing Officer, QAD. “By offering deployment independence, customers can choose what is right for them. The blended offering provides for a transition to the cloud on a site-by-site basis while still providing a consistent user experience across deployments. Blended deployments offer real strategic value to our customers.”
