The Power of Data

Complete Production Control begins with data.  It's the Power of Quantum.

From process design through work order management, inventory levels through production scheduling, Quantum gives you visibility and control over your entire Production Operations team.  Below is just a short list of some of the things that Quantum does compared to a typical ERP/MRP, a financial package and the tools you have already in Microsoft on your desktop.  Not seeing what you want or need?  Ask us.  Quantum is a true enterprise platform built for the middle market.
