Smooth Deployment

Deploying QAD was a breeze, and the transition from our previous ERP system to this one was remarkably smooth.

  • The transition from our previous ERP system to QAD was remarkably smooth.

Steer clear of this software

The program QAD Adaptive ERP is awful and falls short on all counts, including value, technology, user interface, and feature set. It has a 1980s vibe to it and is shoddily developed. You will be repeatedly pressing "Next" buttons, and the panels are based on an outdated 80x20 monitor. Certain fundamental features are regarded as add-ons and demand additional yearly license payments. Additionally, the program is glitchy and prone to freeze. I firmly discourage adopting QAD Adaptive ERP.

  • None.
  • Has bugs, very old system, horrible functionality and important features are required to be paid as add-ons.
