Since its inception, QMS has experienced rapid growth, quickly earning recognition as one of the most innovative, trusted and successful SAP consulting solution providers in the U.S. and around the world.
QMS is an SAP Consulting Firm that takes the time to understand the unique technology needs for each situation, and then helps our customers achieve the best value from their systems. We like to think of ourselves as a trusted partner for obtaining quality, efficiency and value from technology. QMS is, first and foremost, a team of talented individuals with world-class skills in a wide range of technology solutions.
The three principals of QMS have a combined experience of over 43 years of working with SAP. Other SAP consulting firms do not have the SAP knowledge in-house and are often SAP generalists that simply contract SAP consultants when they have the need. The majority of SAP consulting firms do not maintain an internal team of SAP experts to support their projects, and thus do not have the knowledge, experience, and support that QMS can leverage internally.
QMS has worked extensively with companies in the Life Science Industry, Medical Devices and Scientific Instruments, Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals and Pharmaceutical and Manufacturing. QMS also works with Food, CPG, and Chemical companies as well as Automotive and Equipment manufacturers. We have used this vast industry experience to develop our “Solution Set” offering of “Best Practices” for the implementation of SAP.
