QAD Inc. (QADA) (QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services for global manufacturing companies, announced today that it has completed one of the most comprehensive and stringent software validation processes in the automotive industry by achieving Honda “Approved Software” status for QAD Automation Solutions. QAD was already recognized as a Honda “Approved Software Provider” for other QAD and partner solution combinations.
Honda North America, Inc., a global leader in automotive manufacturing, requires its original equipment manufactured parts suppliers to use an authorized integrated electronic data interchange (EDI), barcode and demand management solution. Software vendors must complete a rigorous testing and validation process to ensure the suite of applications complies with Honda’s requirements for electronic data validation and barcode label conformance. While Honda does not recommend or endorse specific vendors, this designation recognizes that QAD has successfully completed Honda’s testing criteria required to meet EDI and barcode specifications for Honda.
“We are excited to add QAD Automation Solutions to our existing set of Honda Approved Solutions,” said QAD Automation Solutions Director Astrid Rommens. “We have provided world class solutions to the automotive industry for over 35 years. This approval builds on our continued commitment to support and collaborate with the automotive industry.”
