E-Commerce Applications

MFG/PRO B2B gives QAD enterprise software users the ability to share information and conduct business-to-business transactions over the Internet. This means that your entire global supply chain can be electronically linked together through MFG/PRO and the Internet. MFG/PRO B2B access facilitates faster and more efficient communications with your customers, suppliers, and internal users, allowing you to respond to changing requirements much more rapidly.

MFG/PRO B2C is a Web storefront specifically designed for the special requirements of manufacturing and distribution companies within QAD's vertical markets. It allows your company to display, market, and transact orders for your finished goods or services seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Just as importantly, it presents to your customers an easy-to-use Web transaction interface that takes orders with the secure use of a credit card.

Easy to implement and maintain, MFG/PRO EDI provides a streamlined method of managing EDI communications between MFG/PRO and trading partners. The application places the processing logic, EDI document specifications, and trading partner specifications in database tables that can be modified at the user interface level with a set of maintenance programs. This table-driven EDI message conversion system allows a common software solution to seamlessly support a wide range of trading partners and document types.
