Logan Consulting at Explore

QAD Explore Conference: May 7th-10th

Welcome QAD Explore Participants!

Logan Consulting would like to help you get the most out of your Explore 2018 investment. This week-long conference offers a lot of value for QAD customers, including great sessions, demos of new product functionality, training and a view into where QAD is investing its R&D dollars.  Click here for the full conference agenda.

In addition to the benefits listed above, Logan Consulting would like to offer two additional ways to help you capture value:



Networking Assistance: in our experience, one of the biggest opportunities is to connect with peers of yours, in non-competitive companies, where QAD is the ERP system supporting its business processes.  Compare notes on software licensing, QAD consulting partners, Cloud effectiveness and modules that may offer you the ability to extract business value.  That said, most people are not deliberate in their networking, rather, just networking when the opportunity presents itself.  Nothing wrong with that, but Logan Consulting would like to offer networking assistance for those that want to ensure they return from the conference with a few peers they can touch base with, from time to time, to compare notes or discuss other QAD related challenges. 


If you would like us to help you connect with peers, just send us a request, and we will do our best to arrange introductions that align the experience level and industry focus you seek.

Questions Answered: if you have some difficult questions related to QAD, or processes supported by QAD, Explore is a great place to get answers.  Logan Consulting will have functional and technical QAD consulting experts in attendance (see Logan Explore Team below).
