MFG/PRO eB2 software is a comprehensive supply chain-enabled enterprise solution that includes manufacturing, sales and distribution, and financial management applications within an open systems environment. QAD has significantly increased the functionality of MFG/PRO eB2, expanding QAD's ability to be a supplier of powerful, industry-specific e-business solutions. Additionally, a new Web-based user interface, QAD Desktop 2, expands the ability of users to integrate MFG/PRO eB2 into their business practices. Rapidly installable, MFG/PRO eB2 provides single-site companies or multinational organizations with a fully integrated enterprise solution that sets new standards for connectivity, functionality, and ease-of-use. MFG/PRO eB2 delivers quick results because it is built from the ground up to meet the needs of the industries QAD serves. Because of QAD's Q-Advantage implementation methodology, MFG/PRO eB2 has one of the fastest implementation records in the business.

"QAD's proven MFG/PRO Enterprise Resource Planning and Supply Chain Management solution and our IT expertise make a winning combination that will let us better meet our customers' needs," said Mr. Bernard Yu, CEO of Infoman. "Our partnership with QAD allows us to offer a complete end-to-end solution for the manufacturing industries that complements our existing progress solutions."

"Our customers can now rely on our consulting and support services to implement and deploy QAD's ERP and supply chain solutions rapidly and cost-effectively. We put within their reach QAD's world-class solutions that enable them to take proactive steps to stay competitive in an increasingly global marketplace," added Mr. Yu.

As the distributor of Progress, the database on which MFG/PRO is developed on, Infoman has a good appreciation of the technical architecture on which QAD's ERP and supply chain solutions are based upon.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with a leading software solutions provider in the Philippines in the delivery of QAD's MFG/PRO ERP and supply chain solutions to local mid-market companies," said Mr. Ong Chee Hian, Regional Sales Director of QAD Asia Limited. "A local representative with the ability to cover the local market, deliver cost competitiveness, and ease customer's concern on issues such as local support is important to our initiative in every country we venture into where we do not have an office."
