IQMS Announces Material Review Board Module
New Module for EnterpriseIQ Offers Robust Solution to Streamline Non-Conformances
PASO ROBLES, Calif., March 29 / -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, today announced the availability of the Material Review Board (MRB) module for its EnterpriseIQ ERP software. MRB enables manufacturers to electronically document, manage and track discrepancies with materials, whether raw material, work in process or finished goods. MRB supports team management, allowing multiple individuals both inside and outside the organization to participate in each incident.
"Our new MRB module provides our customers and prospects with a comprehensive, quality solution," said Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS. "With MRB, everything is right at their fingertips so they no longer have to deal with several cumbersome software packages to accomplish the same tasks. We offer a single solution to address the pain points inherent in existing paper systems."
The MRB module is seamlessly embedded in EnterpriseIQ -- one of the industry's leading full-featured ERP systems. This powerful module empowers employees to get involved in the quality process, breaking down internal barriers. MRB increases efficiency and cross-functional communication by enabling online collaboration, both internally and externally. With MRB, users can also quickly access, store and capture historic data. MRB also allows for complete traceability of records without the need to rely on paper systems.
"In response to our customers' ongoing ERP needs, we are extremely excited about the release of our MRB module," said Phil Kibitt, product manager at IQMS. "This new functionality combined with our robust EnterpriseIQ ERP system provides clients and prospects with the online collaborative functionality that they have been looking for in an ERP solution."
The MRB module takes advantage of the embedded workflow system in EnterpriseIQ, and when used in conjunction with the additional features found within EnterpriseIQ such as inventory, purchasing and scheduling, completes the documentation and subsequent handling of non-conforming items. Using email and Web technology, all members of the MRB team are alerted when action needs to be taken. The module supports approvals of each step in the process and allows comments to be saved with a report pertaining to the incident. Upon completion of all the steps, the system can automatically close the issue. MRB's can also be associated with customers or vendors to improve customer service responsiveness, product quality and customer satisfaction. In addition, when material is toggled to non-conforming in inventory, an MRB can be created instantaneously.
MRB is available immediately. For more information on the MRB module for EnterpriseIQ, visit www.iqms.com/products/quality/mrb.htm .
