Release date: 10th October 2005
HRS, developer and supplier of the Jobshop suite of manufacturing software, has signed a partnership agreement with Gael Quality Ltd to distribute its Q-Pulse system to existing Jobshop users and new business opportunities. Q-Pulse is recognised as a market leader in quality and compliance management software, with more than 4000 user companies across the broadest cross section of industry and commerce.
The agreement recognises the synergy that exists between business management and quality and compliance systems within the manufacturing sector. It also marks the first phase of a development programme that will result in closer interoperability between Jobshop and Q-Pulse.
“Q-Pulse helps organisations ranging from airlines and financial institutions to health care trusts to implement a culture of improvement throughout their operations,” says Gael Quality’s Sales Director, Martin Bowman. “All companies have similar requirements and the principles we employ are equally applicable across industry boundaries.
“HRS has an enviable position in the manufacturing sector. Its core competences and expertise will undoubtedly enable the benefits of a continuous improvement culture to be brought to the widest range of existing and new HRS customers alike.”
“It is vitally important for us to continually develop our software and services portfolio through future releases of Jobshop,” continues HRS’s Managing Director, Peter Roost. “The strategic agreement with Gael Quality not only reflects the close fit between our two company cultures, but also provides each partner with the means to enhance the value and capabilities of its software products.”
HRS, along with Planit International, Licom, Radan, Cabinet Vision and Cabnetware belong to the Planit Holdings group of companies – a London Stock Exchange listed business operating in global industrial and retail markets, with software products encompassing design to manufacturing applications and business management solutions.
