IQMS Releases Innovative Smart Search for EnterpriseIQ

Press release date: Dec 17, 2008

Unique Functionality Delivers Instant Access to Critical Manufacturing Information

PASO ROBLES, Calif., Dec. 17 -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, is pleased to announce the release of Smart Search for EnterpriseIQ. Smart Search provides a unique way for users to quickly access data within the EnterpriseIQ system. Accessed directly from a user desktop shortcut or the innovative Smart Page application interface, Smart Search allows users to scan search results and drill down for additional information on items related to specific search criteria. By enhancing search capabilities so they are faster and more intuitive, Smart Search will deliver immediate results in increased productivity, efficiency, and tighter control over the manufacturing process.

Smart Search uses full-text, index-based searching technology, and can be configured to seek out any EnterpriseIQ text data within the entire ERP system. Since index-based technology does not use SQL SELECTs, searches are extremely fast. Based on user specified security rights, results are displayed in a familiar search engine format and are linked to the corresponding record. Users directly enter search criteria into the search box or use advanced search capabilities that provide a menu of pre-defined applications. Smart Search can display, upon request, all related records, delivering intuitive search functionality that's essential in all manufacturing facilities.

"At IQMS we continue to innovate and develop upon the intuitive functionality we've built into EnterpriseIQ," says Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS. "Now more than ever, manufacturers must operate lean and agile. The speed and performance of Smart Search is an advantage because it scans potentially hundreds of thousands of records in just seconds. By giving manufacturers quicker and smarter control to search their manufacturing business data, Smart Search will help our customers achieve greater efficiency and remain competitive."

Developed to leverage a Google(TM) type interface, which all users are familiar with, Smart Search is more than just a search engine -- it is an advanced user interface into the EnterpriseIQ ERP. Applications areas such as manufacturing, accounting, document control, SPC, preventative maintenance, CRM, purchases, etc., can have configured search capabilities based on the role of the ERP user. Smart Search also provides added flexibility for "fuzzy searching" to account for minor misspellings, and to run automatically when Windows is started. Using key word searches, Smart Search will search the entire EnterpriseIQ ERP database, as well as all document control libraries and internally stored repository libraries. Like the many other intuitive capabilities found in EnterpriseIQ, Smart Search is a unique feature developed by IQMS and offered to all current customers at no additional cost.
