NedZink Industrial Zinc Manufacturer Upgrades To QAD Enterprise Edition To Enhance Efficiency And Productivity

Stocks in this article: QADA QADB

QAD Inc. (NASDAQ: QADA) (NASDAQ: QADB), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions and services for global manufacturing companies, today announced NedZink has gone live with the latest edition of QAD Enterprise Applications. NedZink, branded the “Think Zink” market leader in the production of titanium zinc, upgraded to QAD Enterprise Applications with powerful QAD Financials and the easy-to-use and customize QAD .NET User Interface (UI). QAD Enterprise Edition offers NedZink a faster, more efficient solution to automate its financial consolidations. With QAD, NedZink is able to significantly streamline business processes for multi-currency and multi-tax requirements.

Providing NedZink with a fully integrated end-to-end ERP software solution, QAD Enterprise Edition enhances efficiency in financial, supply chain, and logistics management. “QAD expertise in industrial manufacturing accelerated the entire implementation,” said Roel Frissen, head of logistics and ICT at NedZink. “With QAD, we have already benefited from greater visibility into the performance of our business, and have optimized our ability to plan accordingly and control the factors affecting our performance.”

QAD Financials Solution Helps NedZink Become a More Efficient Enterprise

QAD Financials provide the comprehensive controls and capabilities NedZink needs to support financial reporting and disclosure. Prior to the QAD upgrade, NedZink deployed disparate point solutions and systems that forced NedZink to spend hours or even days to obtain daily logs, calculate materials costs, and generate incident and time reporting.

“Upgrading to QAD enterprise applications empowers NedZink to meet their goals to enhance efficiency, productivity and operate at peak performance,” said Gordon Fleming, QAD chief marketing officer. “Matching QAD enterprise solutions with ongoing customer engagement is what we’re all about.”

Leveraging QAD Enterprise Applications with a New User Interface

To leverage the full capabilities of QAD Enterprise Edition, NedZink implemented the QAD .NET UI to provide a common user interface for all its new QAD Enterprise Applications. It incorporates a consistent user interface metaphor, reducing the need for users to learn how to navigate QAD applications.
