One Of The World’s Largest Suppliers Of Shocks And Struts Selects QAD On Demand Global Cloud ERP

QAD Inc. (NASDAQ:QADA) (NASDAQ:QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturers, today announced that KYB Japan has selected QAD On Demand, QAD’s cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. Global manufacturers are increasingly turning to QAD On Demand as their trusted cloud ERP solution for its reliability, flexible deployment options, global capabilities and predicable cost structure.

QAD On Demand – Built For High-Volume Manufacturing

KYB, one of the world’s largest suppliers of shocks and struts to vehicle manufacturers, will initially transition to QAD On Demand Automotive Edition in France and The United Arab Emirates. As a supplier to major automakers including GM, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Infiniti, Chrysler, Subaru, Toyota, Lexus and Volkswagen, KYB recognized the benefits of selecting the proven QAD cloud ERP model to support its business strategy. KYB’s global enterprise consists of 32 facilities in 21 countries and 29 manufacturing plants of which 17 are in Asia, five in North America, one in Brazil and six in Europe. The company needed a better way to support operations — and reduce costs over the next two years. QAD’s cloud ERP offers KYB, a company with the largest production volume of any automotive shock supplier, the opportunity to reduce costs, improve quality and delivery performance.

QAD On Demand allows KYB to reduce its operating costs and provides a highly robust and available solution. QAD’s global capabilities with built-in support for local languages, currencies, business practices and legal requirements, enable KYB to align their global operations to strategic goals.

QAD — Proven Automotive ERP Expertise World-Class Suppliers Count On

“QAD has built a trusted relationship with KYB over the years as our global ERP solution provider as well as provided automotive manufacturing ERP expertise,” said Takafumi Shoji, managing executive officer and GM, Information Technology Administration at KYB Corporation. “The move to QAD On Demand Automotive Edition offers KYB the benefits of a proven cloud ERP solution, and allows us to balance demand and supply while reducing inventory, meeting stringent quality standards and demanding delivery schedules. QAD cloud ERP offers us greater simplicity, flexibility and a predictable cost structure that supports our business strategy.”
