PASO ROBLES, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IQMS, a manufacturing ERP software and MES developer with an ongoing, proactive commitment to its product and relationships, today announced the conclusion of a very successful User Group 2014 conference. Nearly 500 attendees from across the world converged on The Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada last week for three full days of networking, education, inspiration and fun.
"I have attended several User Group events and this was by far the best yet in terms of topics, knowledge level sessions and networking opportunities with industry peers," said Carol MacDonald, IT Manager at Sturgis Products.
Conference highlights included:
- The State of IQMS, including details about IQMS' rapid growth over the past two years and its recent significant equity funding investment from Technology Capital Ventures.
- More than 50 different breakout sessions across four different tracks, ranging from training sessions for beginning users through advanced discussion sessions with IQMS development team members.
- Announcement of the latest EnterpriseIQ software release, featuring IQMS' new Advanced Warehouse Management System (WMS) module - a transaction rule-based directed pick up and put away system that rivals Tier 1 WMS programs.
