EVENT FOUNDER / COORDINATOR
Created in 2007 by brij Image and Information, the Vendor Shootout™ for ERP has helped to simplify software selection for hundreds of companies throughout the US and abroad.
brij’s goal was to create an event where qualified manufacturing and distribution organizations could come and witness multiple ERP packages in action, without sales pressure. “I am SO confident that my product stands up against the competition that I would be willing to line it up alongside those competitors and in front of some project-minded individuals to demonstrate what it can do in a controlled environment. Our competitors will do the same thing, and the attending audience will be allowed, without bias, to make up their own minds as to what products look good to them in terms of functionality, usability, and efficiency.”
- Martin Green, President and CEO, brij Image and Information
What started as a unique concept, has grown into a international brand that has and will continue to change the way manufacturing and distribution organizations approach their software selection projects. www.brij.net

Our goal is to provide our customers an innovative ERP software solution with all the functionality required to efficiently manage and improve business processes. Our flagship product, EnterpriseIQ, is capable of handling all manufacturing and financial needs without requiring expensive third party interfaces making it easier to use, maintain, and implement.
Together, with a team of dedicated Vice Presidents, key managers, and supportive employees, IQMS has combined knowledge and experience to develop the most comprehensive software package available in the industMerittechry, EnterpriseIQ. Having originally introduced the IQ/Genesis (DOS-based) line of manufacturing and accounting modules in 1989, IQMS expanded on the product line in 1993 with the introduction of the fully embedded IQRealTime – a machine monitoring system that feeds information to the software directly from the work centers. In 1995, IQMS saw the need to update its technology to position itself as a key player in the software market. Thus, in 1997, the release of IQWin32 and its 32-bit Windows-based system was offered to complete enterprise management functionality. In 1999, technology’s fast paced growth was the catalyst for IQMS to officially change the name of its software package to EnterpriseIQ. Today, EnterpriseIQ is built on the most up-to-date technology platforms to keep pace with industry demands. Our extended ERP package offers all the power of multiple packages but the ease of use and implementation only capable from a single source solution. www.iqms.com
