QAD supplies services aimed at development and code-cutting to reduce the expense of upgrades for clients and produce tighter integration between QAD’s software and the peripheral systems it plugs into.
QAD Development Services can deliver development costs below the current industry benchmarks with the advantage of vendor expertise. Development capability has been expanded with several global resource centres, providing a more efficient and cost-effective development service. QAD will continue to manage development projects locally with clients while parcels of work will be developed remotely at a lower cost.
Future development efforts will be done to QAD coding standards to ensure compatibility with current and future versions of QAD Desktop Interface and compatibility with Oracle and Progress platforms. Adhering to coding standards also minimises any changes required to support new functionality such as Shared Services Domain (QAD GXE).
QAD has expanded its services from implementation consulting to full lifecycle, encompassing planning design implementation management and development solutions. It is able to provide ongoing development, maintenance, training, support and managed environments.
