QAD Enterprise Applications Assists Senior Flexonics Czech In Achieving Highest Supplier Score Defined By MMOG/LE

QAD Inc., (NASDAQ:QADA) (NASDAQ:QADB), a leading provider of enterprise business software and services, today announced Senior Flexonics Czech ( SFC) automotive-parts supplier for Renault and Ford, has achieved the highest supplier score following deployment of QAD Enterprise Applications. SFC has received validation as a level A supplier, defined by Materials Management Operations Guideline/Logistics Evaluation, ( MMOG/LE), an assessment tool used to measure and improve materials planning and logistics efficiency within a manufacturing facility.

As a result of using QAD Enterprise Applications, SFC has enhanced supply-related delivery factors for all partners within the supply chain and has demonstrated it has the robust material planning and delivery processes in place to support overall business objectives. SFC reduced its average inventory turnover by eight days and decreased the time needed for monthly physical inventory checks by almost 30 percent. They reduced unproductive time, overtime and unscheduled work shifts by more than 15 percent through enhancements in production planning. SFC also saved more than 15 percent on costs associated with the rental of returnable packaging.

Use of QAD Enterprise Applications Assists SFC in Strengthening its Market Position

SFC is part of Senior plc, a multinational group with operations in 11 countries worldwide (U.S., Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Republic of South Africa, India, the Netherlands, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, and the United Kingdom) and has 4,800 employees.

SFC manufactures steel and aluminum pipes for the automotive industry. SFC’s focus on excellence in materials management has enabled the company to gain a stronger reputation and strengthen its market position as a stable and reliable supplier in the automotive industry with the assistance of QAD Enterprise Applications.

Strong Return on Investment and Enhanced Efficiency with QAD

“QAD Enterprise Applications has delivered strong return on investment,” said Jaroslav Majzlik, IT manager at SFC. “Thanks to QAD and the professional implementation consultants at Minerva CZ, we have demonstrated continual improvements to our service quality that allow us to achieve world-class performance. We are utilizing QAD to enhance efficiency and in collaboration with QAD’s valued partner, Minerva CZ, we are introducing innovative processes that enhance employee and customer satisfaction.” Minerva CZ worked closely with SFC to deliver an innovative data capture solution using bar-coding throughout logistics and production. As a result, SFC can gather and map real-time data from their enterprise resource planning ( ERP) processes that can be transformed into graphical displays of the work performed by individual workers on the shop floor. According to the company, the real-time performance map has had a substantial motivational effect, as factory workers are now more involved in reducing unproductive time.

QAD’s partner in the Czech Republic delivered the expert services and QAD solutions to enhance materials management excellence and innovation for the customer. “We were pleased to work with Senior Flexonics to successfully deploy QAD Enterprise Applications and meet the customer’s goals,” said Alena Pribisova, marketing manager at Minerva CZ. “As a result or our work together, Senior Flexonics Czech is now achieving preferred supplier status and has strengthened their market position in the automotive industry.”
