French University To Train The Next Generation Of French Engineers With QAD Enterprise Applications

QAD Inc. (NASDAQ: QADA) (NASDAQ: QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturers, today announced Institut Universitaire de Technologie de Nancy-Brabois ( IUT), a well-known French technical university and part of the University of Lorraine, has deployed QAD Enterprise Applications 2011 to provide training on enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to students enrolled in the school’s advanced engineering program.

The curriculum offered by IUT’s Mechanical and Production Engineering department provides students with a two-year course in engineering as the foundation for their studies. QAD provides IUT students an in-depth, hands-on experience with modern manufacturing ERP software as part of their studies. The ERP curriculum addresses a broad range of topics including, Cloud ERP, global manufacturing processes, best practices, and systems integration.

“By working with QAD Enterprise Applications as part of their course, students come to understand best practice in manufacturing, and how all business processes work within manufacturing companies,” said Steve Gardner, EMEA vice president, sales and marketing, QAD. “We believe that providing the engineers and managers of the future access to our ERP solutions not only helps them fit into the workplace more easily, but in time, French manufacturing companies will benefit from the skills and awareness gained by these future leaders.”

QAD Enterprise Applications is a complete ERP software solution designed to support global manufacturers. QAD Enterprise Applications enables measurement and control of key business processes, and embraces best practices to support companies, whether in a single plant or across an entire global organization.

”QAD is working with the support of IUT Nancy-Brabois to extend this program to other French universities, and provide QAD Enterprise Applications to as many engineering students as possible across the whole of France,” added Gardner.
