Executing a QAD (QAD EE, QAD SE or QAD MFG/PRO) Upgrade and staying current with the latest technology is often a key component to realizing the full return on your investment. Logan Consulting has extensive experience upgrading clients and moving them to the latest version of QAD SE or QAD EE.
Depending on factors such as your current release level, number of customizations, and how familiar your team is with QAD, a QAD upgrade project can range from straightforward (project measured in weeks) to complicated (project measured in months). We often encourage our clients to view a QAD upgrade project as an opportunity to improve and/or streamline business processes while optimizing the software to support the new/revised processes.
First, we help you determine the benefits of the new version and the right time for your company to upgrade. Next, we perform in-depth planning before the upgrade to ensure that it goes smoothly. Consideration is given to customizations, size and number of databases, hours when the system is available and many other factors. Moreover, we have a specific upgrade methodology to ensure that the proper steps are followed and the system is “down” for the least amount of time possible. Finally, we work with you to run the project with the same discipline, efficiency and effectiveness to ensure your project is completed on time, on budget and on target.

Assessment of latest version and benefit to the client
