This year's QAD® Explore Conference was in New Orleans, and what a good choice of venue. Excellent diversity and connections, with users from all over the world along with QAD and QAD solution partners (like us!). Bruce, Jeff, and Jana were representing ProStar, and they reported back to HQ that the floor was hopping - fantastic to have all that interest in our software products - Credit Card Integration, TailorPro, Mobile Enterprise Integration.
It comes as no surprise that modern businesses running QAD are looking to increase their mobile capabilities.
Many of our conversations focused around Mobile Enterprise Integration (MEI), which is our integration platform and business process management tool. MEI makes it possible for you to run your business systems (i.e. Salesforce.com®, .Net®, Oracle®, SQL Server®, Sharepoint®, QAD, Progress/OpenEdge®) on any device, and on any browser. Sound good for business? Find out more about MEI.
Last week in the Big Easy, we also talked to a lot of folks about TailorPro, our non-invasive customization tool for QAD. As part of our commitment to continuous improvement of our products, now with version 8.1, you get MEI functionality *included*. For years, we've seen companies getting started with an investment in TailorPro, and getting the benefits "Easier than doing nothing". So, if your team has TailorPro already and would like to go mobile, has a customization need, are on an aging version of QAD, or are just curious how we can help you get better at what matters, we're here for you.
Our special focus was informing QAD users about ProStar's Credit Card Integration (CCI).
Why? Simple - it's QAD's recommended solution for payment card processing for any company running QAD that needs to take credit card payments. Does your company take credit card payments, but you missed us or didn't make it to Explore this year? We'll be happy to give you a demo of our CCI solution in action.
We look forward to continuing all these conversations, and will be doing outreach this week to follow up. If there are any questions we can answer in the meantime just let us know!
Thanks so much to all the participants and organizers whose input and support made for a successful trade show.
