Vit-Best Selects QAD Adaptive ERP in the Cloud
Based in Tustin, California, Vit-Best Nutrition is a manufacturer of tablets, powders and capsules with a focus on private labeling of nutritional supplements. They offer bulk processing as well as a full complement of packaging options. They serve customers domestically and in 25 countries globally. QAD Inc., a leading provider of adaptive, cloud-based enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, announced that Vit-Best, a provider of fully integrated contract manufacturing solutions for the natural products industry, will migrate from QAD ERP on-premise to QAD Adaptive ERP in the cloud.
“We have been a longtime partner of QAD and wanted to take advantage of the latest enhancements to their solutions. The cloud offers a wide range of benefits, the most important of which is the ability to pivot quickly and scale to match the evolution in our business,” said Vit-Best CIO Scott Blaska. “We compete in a highly regulated industry, and the ability to exceed the expectations of our customers while complying with regulations in all the countries we serve is crucial. QAD Adaptive ERP will give us a platform that will scale easily as we grow.”
Vit-Best has been a QAD ERP customer since 2006 and runs several other QAD solutions including QAD CEBOS EQMS. Since they were using an older version of QAD’s ERP solution, Vit-Best, with the guidance of QAD partner Strategic Information Group conducted a review of the processes aimed at choosing an ERP direction for the future. Strategic advised Vit-Best to make a move to QAD Adaptive ERP in the cloud to help it:
- Continue to meet the evolving expectations of its customers and increase customer service levels
- Standardize and modernize the company’s business processes to industry standards
- Eliminate the need for customizations
- Adopt new functionality that aligns with industry best practices
- Gain live, actionable insights through the solution’s business intelligence features
- Enable accessibility to team members globally
- Easily implement its ERP at additional production facilities as the company grows
In addition to QAD Adaptive ERP, Vit-Best will work with Strategic to implement QAD Automation Solutions to align its ERP with its material processes.
“Vit-Best is yet another longtime QAD customer who has seen the benefits of moving their ERP to the cloud,” said QAD Senior Vice President Mike Brunnick. “They wanted to take advantage of the latest QAD Adaptive ERP functionality including EAM, Production Orders and the QAD Configurator. In addition, they will be moving to a new facility and won’t need to set up a new server, saving the company time and money.”
