Stocks in this article: QADA QADB

QAD Inc. (NASDAQ: QADA) (NASDAQ: QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, today announced Korona S.A., one of the largest candle manufacturers in Europe, has upgraded to the latest version of QAD Enterprise Applications to support the company’s expanding manufacturing needs.

Korona S.A., based in Wieluń, Poland, produces approximately nine million candles per day, which are resold with private labels by global retailers, including Tesco, Wal-Mart, and IKEA. Korona S.A.’s market share continues to grow in part due to the company’s focus on high quality, original designs, and exceptional customer service.

Korona S.A. has used QAD solutions since 2001. In 2011, in response to growing demand and a need for greater manufacturing output, Korona S.A. upgraded to the latest version of QAD Enterprise Applications, and implemented QAD Warehousing and the QAD .NET User Interface ( UI). QAD Enterprise Applications supports Korona S.A.’s sales, purchasing, logistics, manufacturing, and finance operations.

“Korona S.A. is growing rapidly. We’re on track to double revenues over the next five years,” said Andrzej Wróbel, vice president, Korona S.A. “We are making large investments in new plants and increasing our warehouse space. QAD Enterprise Applications enables us to automate and grow our business.”

Korona S.A. implemented QAD Warehousing to address the high production volume and distribution standards required by one of its most valued customers, and to fully automate its warehouse management to enhance shipment accuracy and efficiency. The use of radio frequency (RF) scanner devices for inventory management also supports the company’s extensive eco-based practices with a paperless workflow.

“QAD supports all of our operations, ensuring we have continuity and a streamlined customer service effort,” said Mariusz Wicher, IT manager, Korona S.A. “This upgrade has enabled us to realize our resources’ full potential and experience a positive impact on our overall business.”
