IQMS says 2013 another year of growth and expansion
IQMS, a Paso Robles software manufacturing company recently announced its 2013 year in review. Previous reinvestment in the company and a strong focus on software development have allowed IQMS to experience its best year ever with an organic increase in revenue of 26 percent over 2012.
IQMS had much more than financial success to celebrate in 2013. For the third year in a row, IQMS placed on the Inc. 500|5000 list of fastest growing private companies in America. Ranked at No. 3,230 (more than 600 spots higher than last year), IQMS joined rarefied company with its three consecutive placements, as well as earned the honor of being one of a handful of companies to move up in the rankings all three years on the list.
IQMS introduced a number of new software offerings last year, including a major software release at the beginning of 2013, a SolidWorks product data management add-in and expanded mobile apps that increase mobility in areas such as CRM and the shop floor. Additionally, IQMS extended its MES hardware offerings with the next generation RTStation 10.1 and a proprietary programmable logic controller (PLC).
“This past year, everything that we have been working so hard to develop and cultivate really came together,” said Randy Flamm, president at IQMS. “After the years of reinvestment and discipline on product development, it is so refreshing to reap the rewards as we grow organically in both new customers and internal employee additions. This coming year, 2014, is already forecasting to be no different in terms of growth and expansion.”
Since January, IQMS has signed nearly 90 new customers in a diverse range of manufacturing markets. IQMS also opened an office in Mexico City to spearhead expansion into Latin and South America. Many of IQMS’ clients received industry praise this past year in categories such as customer and employee excellence, sustainability, operational excellence and game changing technology. One IQMS customer, Nicolet Plastics, was named Manufacturer of the Year (small enterprise) in May by the Manufacturing Leadership Council, clearly demonstrating that IQMS manufacturers are true leaders in their industries.
While December of 2013 may have marked IQMS’ best month on record, 2014 is already shaping up to be a notable year: January kicks off IQMS’ 25th year in business designing and developing its comprehensive ERP and MES software solution, employees recently moved into IQMS’ newest 30,000-square-foot building on its campus headquarters and IQMS’ Professional Services Group celebrated more than a dozen companies going live on the software in the first few weeks of January.
