FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CEBOS, a leader in company-wide quality and compliance management solutions for manufacturing companies, today launched a new version of its CEBOS QMS solution as well as a new, faster upgrade process. CEBOS is a division of QAD (NASDAQ: QADA,NASDAQ: QADB).
The CEBOS 2018 solution is a fully-integrated, end-to-end, cross-functional quality management solution. As an HTML-based solution, it offers substantial technical and performance improvements over the existing client-server solution. CEBOS 2018 is fully mapped to the International Automotive Task Group (IATF) 16949 revised 2018 requirements, which take effect in September 2018, and includes two new applications for Risk Management and Team Performance Management. While it is engineered for the cloud, flexible deployment options allow customers to integrate it with their on-premise ERP solutions.
"The 2018 CEBOS release is very important for CEBOS and its customers," said Tom Seadler, president of CEBOS. "The solution foundation features significant improvements to stability, performance and ease of system management. We also made nearly 100 enhancements to the application suite to help automotive suppliers comply with the new IATF regulations. In addition, CEBOS 2018 features embedded best practices based on ISO 9001 standards, which helps not only the automotive vertical but also medical device manufacturers, contract manufacturers, industrial product manufacturers and consumer product manufacturers with a focus on quality. CEBOS 2018 will help CEBOS customers and prospects become successful in their EQMS efforts."
The new upgrade conversion process enables most existing CEBOS customers still utilizing the client-server version of the solution to rapidly complete their upgrades to the latest (HTML-based) version. As part of the new upgrade process, CEBOS conducts a preliminary migration analysis, installs the new software, performs the migration and completes the initial testing. The customer then performs detailed data validation before turning on the new version.
Both the latest release of CEBOS QMS and the upgrade tool are available immediately.
Since 1995, CEBOS has been providing enterprise-wide quality management and management process system software and services. From the original client-server version to today's groundbreaking enterprise-wide CEBOS quality management solutions, CEBOS has always been in the forefront of quality. Over 350 quality-minded customers use CEBOS in their manufacturing businesses.
