Most large enterprise customers rarely look for an ERP solution outside of SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft as they offer comprehensive global solutions with localizations in most countries. This allows you to use a truly global solution without requiring a country-specific solution for the countries where non-global solutions fall short. When it comes to a truly global solution, some industries have specific supply chain management needs, including global trade management, transportation management, and supplier collaboration. These industries include Automotive suppliers that need to collaborate with their suppliers and perform integrated business planning. This planning helps them meet the needs of demanding customers such as GM and Ford while still meeting their costs expectations in an ultra-competitive market. Enter QAD. They are truly unique with their capabilities to support the needs of specific micro-verticals of global enterprises.
In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to discuss major stories in the ERP and digital transformation space and an objective and independent review of QAD' capabilities. We covered several grounds, including their positioning in specific micro-verticals and their deeper capabilities than other manufacturing ERP software. Finally, we discussed their product roadmap, history, current cloud capabilities, financial risks, and changes to their strategy because of the private equity acquisition.
