Industry Watch
Here's a sampling of what's in the news this week.
Software Selections
Jordan’s Furniture retailer selects Coda Financials
Wholesale and retail trade
"This famous and venerable (over 80 years old) furniture retailer with multiple locations across New England uses a 20-year-old ERP system, and realized that its financial module does not meet the needs of the current business, and costs too much, as well as being operable in constant patching mode only. Therefore they decided to have a look at the market in order to choose another application with a focus on budgeting, planning, real-time tracking, and flexible reporting. Coda Financials was the choice of this thorough selection, and besides the functional capability of the software, ease of collaboration with the Coda team was also an important factor."

Automotive and office furniture assembler selects IQMS
Automotive, furniture
"IQMS’s competitors were reportedly Microsoft Dynamics AX and Epicor 9. Some of the compelling reasons for the customer to select IQMS were as follows:
  • E-commerce integration was a big factor due to specific labeling and order requirements from a major client;
  • The IQMS Automation Group capabilities is something the customer wants down the road, and IQMS has experience with PLC integration;
  • Lean concepts and heijunka box load-leveling tools;
  • IQMS' EnterpriseIQ system included extended capabilities, such as the Quality Suite of modules, right out-of-the-box."
