IQMS 2012 Jaaroverzicht

IQMS, een producent van ERP-software en ontwikkelaar van MES, met een doorlopende, proactieve toewijding aan zijn product en relaties, heeft vandaag zijn jaaroverzicht voor 2012 aangekondigd. Met een agressief ontwikkelingsjaar in bijna elk aspect van het bedrijf, kende IQMS zijn elfde opeenvolgende jaar met groei in dubbele cijfers met een autonome omzetstijging van 24 procent ten opzichte van 2011.

IQMS richtte zich in 2012 sterk op herinvestering in voorbereiding op een veelbelovend komend jaar. Naast het aannemen van bijna 50 nieuwe medewerkers, verspreid over bijna elke afdeling (een toename in werknemers van meer dan 30 procent sinds afgelopen december), legde IQMS bij zijn wereldwijde hoofdkwartier, de grondsteen voor een tweede gebouw van 2800 vierkante meter. Ontworpen om in het najaar van 2013 te worden opgeleverd, wordt de faciliteitsruimte dat IQMS nu bezit heeft, verdubbeld en maakt het plaats voor nog eens 120 nieuwe medewerkers, over de komende twee jaar.

IQMS zag een stijging in 2012 van meer dan 20 procent in nieuwe klanten uit bijna elke gevestigde verwerkende industrie (alsmede uit een aantal opkomende). Terwijl de markten voor medische, verpakkings-, automobiel- en elektronicaproducten sterk blijven, ontwikkelt IQMS belangrijke nieuwe relaties in de luchtvaart- en rubberindustrie.

“Fabrikanten zijn steeds meer aangetrokken tot de voordelen die een enkele, interactieve ontwikkelingspartner kan bieden met onze uitgebreide productie-specifieke ERP-softwareoplossing,” aldus Randy Flamm, President bij IQMS. “In 2012 hebben we ons in belangrijke mate gericht op het vastleggen van, en investering in onze infrastructuur zodat we ons samen met onze geavanceerde softwareoplossing in de beste positie plaatsen voor een succesvolle en veelbelovende toekomst.”

Behalve een nadruk op herinvestering heeft IQMS ook zijn inzet voor zijn klanten bevorderd. In maart introduceerde het bedrijf MyIQMS, een nieuwe samenwerkingsgemeenschap met hulpmiddelen voor softwareontwikkeling, -ondersteuning en -training. Daarnaast organiseerde IQMS in oktober zijn meest bijgewoonde User Group-evenement. Meer dan 300 aanwezigen namen deel aan een intensieve driedaagse bijeenkomst van netwerken, trainingen en samenwerking.

Op deze interactieve conferentie presenteerde IQMS zijn inaugurale Manufacturing Success Award aan klant Plastikos, Inc. Door een extern panel van deskundige juryleden uit de industrie geselecteerd uit tientallen progressieve nominaties, toonde het project van Plastikos hoe samenwerking en innovatie kan leiden tot operationele uitmuntendheid.

Plastikos, Inc. was niet de enige klant van IQMS die eerbetoon kreeg in dit recordjaar van onderscheidingen. Om er een paar te noemen, drie klanten van IQMS werden genoemd als winnaars van Plastics News, waaronder Steinwall, Inc. die naar huis ging met de prestigieuze Processor of the Year award. Drie andere klanten van IQMS ontvingen Manufacturing Leadership 100 awards, waaronder Tessy Plastics Corp., die werd uitgeroepen tot beste presteerder in de categorie voor Operational Excellence. Zij streefde daarbij de concurrenten IBM, Ford Motor Co. en L’Oreal USA voorbij. Wat betreft IQMS, het bedrijf klom hoger in de tweede opeenvolgende plaatsing in de Inc. 5000-lijst en werd benoemd als leverancier voor een winnaar van de Medical Device Excellence Award, Aribex, Inc. Tot slot won de Automation Department van IQMS een Product Development Team of the Year award voor zijn RTStation-toestel, Shipping Manager -module en andere indrukwekkende ontwikkelingen voor de werkplaats die in 2012 werden uitgebracht.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
