Logan Consulting Implements QAD for Multinational LED Manufacturer

Posted on: August 11, 2016 | By: Craig Thompson | QAD Practice News

Like many quickly expanding multinational organizations, with growth often comes a need for change. Dated, smaller scale ERP systems while effective at first, are unable to handle large quantity orders as your manufacturing business expands.

In this specific case, this manufacturer reached out to Logan Consulting, a Chicago based QAD Partner, about implementing QAD’s cloud ERP software to help handle their growing business. Their current ERP system did not align well with the size of the organization, their current supply chain distribution model or their multi-national reporting requirements. Although they had operations in the multiple nations, they mainly worked with two financial entities in Canada and the United States.


Logan Consulting was brought on as the project manager for this implementation project and helped develop a single database multiple domain configuration specific to the complex reporting requirements of their business. The operational domain included both their US and Canadian entities, each planning and inventory site as well as supporting modules for manufacturing, distribution and financial reporting requirements.

QAD’s ERP solutions are an excellent option for manufacturers looking to manage complex reporting and financial, manufacturing and distribution functions that they need to succeed.


This company was able to successfully eliminate their transfer pricing model from the operational transaction set, making it easier to prove analysis from a gross and contribution margin standpoint. They were also able to build a solid transfer pricing model to manage both their US and Canadian financials. This QAD Implementation project completely streamlined their financial processing to help them maintain and grow their organization to support high quantities of multinational business.
