QAD Inc. Risks and Challenges

QAD’s 100% focus on manufacturing means that QAD’s business tends to go as the manufacturing sector goes. The pandemic has impacted various areas of the manufacturing sector significantly. Nonetheless, QAD was able to grow cloud revenues by over 20% for both of the fiscal quarters reported thus far during the pandemic.

Though QAD's architecture can support multi-tenant deployment, QAD only chooses to use multi-tenancy for use cases where it is obviuosly required, such as in supply relationship management and eCommerce apps. QAD does run multi-tenant at the IaaS layer, and its focusing of its energies on the availability and performance of the cloud instances has resulted in a 99. 9+% availability of the QAD Cloud over the three years.

While the lack of a multi-tenant approach might prevent QAD from winning with small manufacturers, due to its FDA qualified cloud offering for Life Sciences, it has experienced strong traction with early-phase companies in that sector. Because of increased focus on quality in the automotive sector, emerging automotive manufacturers have adopted QAD Adaptive ERP for Automotive due to QAD’s full integration with MMOG/LE, a global standard for evaluating supply chain management processes against industry best practices. This has created particular opportunity for QAD during the restart of manufacturing operations during the pandemic.
