QAD system actually enables users to complete the same transactions more easily. We now have the same functionality of SAP without the complexity. We still control inventory by location and bin, without doing the additional three confirmation steps that were required by SAP Warehouse. It was a four-step process with four operators; now, it is a one-step process with a single operator.
Grow and Fionda were also responsible for moving the FDA-regulated facility from validated SAP to validated QAD; there was a considerable amount of skepticism surrounding the project. The original SAP validation required large teams of people, thousands of SAP controls and configurations, and its cross variations were all subject to validation.
