IQMS 2012 Year in Review
PASO ROBLES, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
ERP software and MES
developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and
relationships, today announced its 2012 year in review. An aggressive
development year in nearly every aspect of the company, IQMS experienced
its eleventh consecutive year of double digit growth with an organic
increase in revenue of 24 percent over 2011.
IQMS focused heavily on reinvestment in 2012 in preparation for a
promising upcoming year. In addition to hiring nearly 50 new employees
across almost every department (a more than 30 percent increase in
employees since last December), IQMS broke ground on a second
30,000 square foot building at its global corporate headquarters.
Designed to be finished in fall of 2013, the second facility effectively
doubles the space that IQMS now owns and makes room for an additional
120 new employees over the next two years.
IQMS saw a more than 20 percent increase in new customers in 2012 from
nearly every established manufacturing industry (as well as some
emerging ones). With the medical, packaging, automotive and electronics
markets remaining strong, IQMS made significant new relationships in the
aerospace and rubber industries.
"Manufacturers are increasingly attracted to the benefits that a single,
interactive development partner can offer with our extended
manufacturing-specific ERP software solution," said Randy Flamm,
president at IQMS. "In 2012, we focused significantly on cementing and
investing in our internal infrastructure so that together with our
advanced software solution, we can best position ourselves for a
successful and exciting future."
In addition to a reinvestment emphasis, IQMS also furthered its
commitment to its customers. In March, the company launched MyIQMS,
a new collaborative community experience with software development,
support and training tools. Additionally, in October IQMS hosted its
most highly attended User
Group event. More than 300 attendees participated in a jam-packed
three days of networking, training and collaboration.
At this interactive conference, IQMS presented its inaugural Manufacturing
Success Award to customer, Plastikos,
Inc. Selected from dozens of progressive nominations by an external
panel of industry expert judges, Plastikos' project demonstrated how
collaboration and innovative can lead to operational excellence.
Plastikos, Inc. was not the only IQMS customer receiving accolades
during this record-breaking year of awards. To name a few, three IQMS
customers were named Plastics News winners, including Steinwall,
Inc. who took home the prestigious Processor
of the Year award. Three other IQMS customers received Manufacturing
Leadership 100 awards, including Tessy Plastics Corp., who was named
highest achiever in the Operational Excellence category over competitors

the ranks in its second consecutive placement on the Inc.
5000 list and was named a supplier to a Medical
Device Excellence Award winner, Aribex, Inc. Finally, IQMS'
