IQMS: Das Jahr 2012 im Rückblick

IQMS, ein Entwickler von ERP- und MES-Software für Fertigungsbetriebe, der sich fortwährend aktiv für sein Produkt und seine Kundenbeziehungen einsetzt, hat heute seinen Jahresrückblick auf 2012 angekündigt. Für fast jeden Bereich des Unternehmens war es ein Jahr mit aggressiven Entwicklungen: IQMS konnte das elfte Jahr in Folge ein Wachstum im zweistelligen Bereich verzeichnen, mit einem organischen Umsatzwachstum von 24 Prozent im Vergleich zu 2011.

2012 konzentrierte man sich bei IQMS stark auf Reinvestitionen, um sich auf ein vielversprechendes neues Jahr vorzubereiten. Zusätzlich zur Einstellung von fast 50 neuen Mitarbeitern in beinahe jeder Abteilung (über 30 Prozent mehr Beschäftigte als im Dezember des Vorjahres) eröffnete IQMS ein zweites Gebäude mit 2700 Quadratmetern Fläche als weltweiten Firmenhauptsitz. Die zweite Anlage soll im Herbst 2013 fertig sein, verdoppelt den IQMS zur Verfügung stehenden Platz und wird in den nächsten zwei Jahren weiteren 120 neuen Angestellten eine Arbeitsstelle bieten.

IQMS konnte 2012 ein Kundenwachstum von über 20 Prozent aus beinahe jeder etablierten Fertigungsbranche verzeichnen (sowie aus einigen neuen Branchen). Während die Märkte für Medizin, Verpackungen, Autos und Elektronik stark bleiben, hat IQMS bedeutende neue Beziehungen mit der Luftfahrt- und der Gummibranche geknüpft.

„Hersteller finden die Vorteile immer attraktiver, die durch einen einzigen interaktiven Entwicklungspartner entstehen, der wie wir eine erweiterte fertigungsspezifische ERP-Softwarelösung anbieten kann“, sagte Randy Flamm, Präsident von IQMS. „Im Jahr 2012 haben wir uns deutlich auf die Festigung unserer internen Infrastruktur und entsprechende Investitionen konzentriert, damit wir uns im Verbund mit unserer modernen Softwarelösung bestmöglich für eine erfolgreiche und spannende Zukunft positionieren können.“

Außer einem Schwerpunkt auf Reinvestitionen hat IQMS auch das Engagement für seine Kunden erweitert. Im März stellte das Unternehmen mit MyIQMS ein neues gemeinschaftliches Umfeld für Softwareentwicklung, Support und Schulungsinstrumente vor. Außerdem veranstaltete IQMS im Oktober den bisher meistbesuchten User-Group-Event. Über 300 Teilnehmer waren an drei vollgepackten Tagen mit Vernetzung, Fortbildung und Zusammenarbeit dabei.

Bei dieser interaktiven Konferenz überreichte IQMS den ersten Manufacturing Success Award an seinen Kunden Plastikos, Inc. Das Projekt von Plastikos wurde von einer externen Jury mit Branchenfachleuten aus Dutzenden von progressiven Vorschlägen ausgewählt und zeigte, wie Kooperation und Innovation zu hervorragenden betrieblichen Leistungen führen können.

Plastikos war nicht der einzige Kunde von IQMS, der in diesem Rekordjahr in Bezug auf Preise ausgezeichnet wurde. Um nur einige zu nennen: Drei Kunden von IQMS wurden von Plastics News zu Preisträgern ernannt, darunter die Firma Steinwall, Inc., die den prestigeträchtigen Preis Processor of the Year entgegennahm. Drei andere Kunden von IQMS erhielten Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards, darunter die Firma Tessy Plastics Corp., die vor Konkurrenten wie IBM, Ford Motor Co. und L’Oreal USA in der Kategorie Operational Excellence den ersten Platz erreichte. IQMS selbst stieg bei seiner zweiten Platzierung in Folge in der Inc.-5000-Liste weiter auf und war einer der Lieferanten für Aribex, Inc., den Gewinner eines Medical Device Excellence Award. Schließlich gewann die Automationsabteilung von IQMS einen Preis für das Produktentwicklungsteam des Jahres für sein Gerät RTStation, das Modul Shipping Manager und weitere beeindruckende Entwicklungen im Fertigungsbereich, die im Jahr 2012 herauskamen.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things’).

IoT is not about the devices, it’s about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. In his session at Internet of Things at Cloud Expo | DXWor...
