A leading provider of enterprise business software and services for global manufacturing companies, QAD Inc. announced today that it has licensed partner Softspeed Consultant Group to distribute QAD Cloud ERP and related services in China.
QAD Chief Marketing Officer Carter Lloyds said “An increasing number of Chinese manufacturers view cloud ERP as a strategic decision that can allow them to focus on what’s important, their customers and products, without the distraction of administering their ERP application and infrastructure. Softspeed is a valued QAD partner with over 15 years of proven QAD experience. Their local knowledge and QAD expertise give them the ability to provide local Chinese companies with world-class QAD Cloud ERP tailored to meet the needs of the Chinese market.”
By bringing QAD Cloud ERP to China, Softspeed Consultant Group became the third authorized QAD Cloud distributor and the first in China. Softspeed is QAD’s largest partner in China and has sold QAD on-premise solutions for 15 years. The company is based in Hong Kong, with regional offices in Guangzhou and Shanghai. It services over 150 QAD customers in the automotive, life sciences, high tech and industrial manufacturing segments. Softspeed will run and manage QAD Cloud ERP in its own data centers and provide related services.
“With the development of booming information technology, modern manufacturing management requires interconnections throughout the company, as well as efficient and well-suited resource allocation,” said Softspeed Consultant Group CEO Kerry Ng. “Softspeed Consultant Group has over 20 years’ experience in ERP system implementation, and that experience combined with our knowledge of QAD Cloud ERP allows us to offer the best fit cloud management system to all manufacturing enterprises.”
