QAD Consulting Services

(QAD EE, QAD SE or QAD MFG/PRO) Overview

Logan Consulting is the longest-standing QAD Alliance services partner, having joined the partner program in 1993 and continuing to this day with QAD EE (Enterprise Edition) and QAD SE (Standard Edition). At a time when QAD did not have its own consulting group, Logan Consulting agreed to partner with QAD to provide QAD MFG/PRO customers with Big-5 level implementation consulting at a reasonable price.

Since 1993, Logan Consulting has built a solid reputation in the QAD space thanks in large part to the dedication of our clients and people. We have developed a wide breadth of experience across all industries where QAD SE, QAD EE or other versions of MFG/PRO are a logical fit. We have helped clients successfully complete hundreds of projects locally, nationally and world-wide.

We believe our company is different. We believe our independent approach, our business process expertise, our deep industry experience and our in-depth product knowledge make us uniquely qualified to help QAD customers maximize the value they gain from their QAD investment while at the same time minimizing risk.

In addition, because we do not resell QAD EE or QAD SE software, we can objectively look at how QAD best fits your business and which version makes the most sense. Because our experience and expertise lies inside as well as outside the QAD space, we can look at your entire business from a business process lens versus a software package lens. This becomes particularly important as your business and business processes stretch beyond your QAD solution. It also puts us in a position to objectively advise you on appropriate modules, functionality, bolt-on packages and other utilities.

Finally, when the project has been successfully completed, you will have a consulting partner that truly understands your business as you look to achieve gains in areas outside your QAD solution. The time investment we both will have made can continue paying dividends because we already intimately understand your business. This can apply to projects such as supply chain optimization, inventory and sales service level optimization, and pricing optimization.

While we keep our client information strictly confidential, we can leverage our QAD experience in your industry to your advantage.

Logan Consulting clients have received numerous Rapid Achiever awards from QAD in recognition of the speed in which their businesses recognized value from MFG/PRO.

Logan Consulting’s unparalleled track record of success with MFG/PRO implementations is the direct result of:

Our Philosophy: We define a successful QAD EE, QAD SE or QAD MFG/PRO project in terms of the value it brings to our client. Though meeting project budgets and timelines are critical, and our track record in those areas is impeccable, we believe that true success results only if our clients recognize strategic and tactical improvements and true return on investment from their projects. These result from process improvements occurring hand-in-glove with the software implementation.

Our People: We focus on hiring and retaining resources with extensive industry and MFG/PRO experience. Our team of over 20 consulting professionals average 10 years of experience with MFG/PRO gained through industry and consulting backgrounds. Though consulting organizations often experience high turnover, we pride ourselves on the fact that our staff’s average tenure is over 7 years. These unique factors allow our clients to extract more value from their MFG/PRO implementation projects on an accelerated timeline.

Our Methodology and Tools: Through our years of experience with QAD EE, QAD SE or QAD MFG/PRO implementations, we have developed a customized methodology and tools geared specifically towards implementing QAD ERP. Our proprietary methodology has proven successful in generating value to our clients and is supported by an internally developed, web-based project management toolkit: www.GlobalToolkit.com. The GlobalToolkit not only supports project management best practices, it also contains a repository of hundreds of process and procedure best-practice templates already customized to MFG/PRO.

Though we believe our experience and reputation tell a compelling story, we believe our past clients are our best salespeople. We encourage any prospective client to contact our references to discuss their experiences working with Logan Consulting on their QAD EE, QAD SE or QAD MFG/PRO projects.
