SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QAD Inc. (Nasdaq:QADA) (Nasdaq:QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, today announced that Oleo International and Savery Hydraulics have chosen to migrate from QAD ERP on-premise to QAD Cloud ERP. Both companies are business units of T.A. Savery and Co.
Oleo International has manufacturing and headquarters in the United Kingdom, offices in China, India, the United States and Germany, and a worldwide network of distributors. Oleo has been producing energy absorption solutions, which are used primarily in trains, cranes and elevators, for over 60 years and has over 1,000,000 units in circulation worldwide.
Savery Hydraulics is a leader in the design and manufacturing of hydraulic solutions including large, bespoke systems, electro-hydraulic control systems and small individual units. Savery also supplies custom power packs and bespoke manifold assemblies.
Both Oleo International and Savery Hydraulics are longtime QAD customers running QAD ERP in their facilities in the United Kingdom, and at the Oleo office in China. Both companies are growing and with expansion into India and other countries looming, they realized that their hardware was nearing obsolescence and needed to be replaced. They decided to review their ERP solutions and explore the possibility of moving them to the cloud. After a rigorous review, both companies chose QAD Cloud ERP, which they will implement initially in their UK facilities.
“Our previous ERP had been limiting us and would have been an issue as we continue to grow and become a more global company,” said Operations Director, John Adams. “We wanted our business processes to incorporate best practices and become a competitive advantage for us. Initially, we were focused on on-premise, but QAD was able to show us the many advantages we would receive from the cloud. We are convinced that it is the right move. Having QAD maintain our ERP in the cloud will allow our IT team to concentrate on strategic projects without the stress of administering our ERP.”
Oleo and Savery selected QAD because it offered a full-featured cloud ERP solution that would help reduce costs while eliminating the risk posed by its outdated hardware. In addition, QAD’s Easy On Boarding methodology will enable staff to quickly implement and begin using their new ERP solution.
By implementing QAD Cloud ERP, Oleo and Savery will also receive a number of specific benefits including:
- The elimination of risk posed by out-of-date hardware.
- Reduced system downtime.
- Predictable annual costs.
- Easy scalability to support growth.
“The review process was very thorough and we were able to show the executives at Oleo International and at Savery Hydraulics not only how much new functionality they would get from upgrading, but also how moving to the cloud was a match for their future growth,” said QAD Senior Vice President of QAD EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) J.C. Walravens. “It’s always gratifying for us to be able to help a long time customer optimize their business processes. As the companies grow, QAD provides a stable, easily scalable process to help facilitate that growth.”
