PASO ROBLES, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- IQMS, a leader in the design and development of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has become a corporate sponsor of the Mid-America Plastics Partners (MAPP) trade association. Founded in 1996 by a group of plastic processors, MAPP is the fastest growing, non-profit organization of its kind in the United States with over 1,000 industry executives from member companies involved in MAPP activities.

MAPP was "created by processors and for processors" with the mission to deliver high caliber resources that positively impact members' businesses. MAPP activities are driven by plastic processors and provide services such as formal benchmarking, peer networking opportunities, new business leads, and a wealth of immediate information designed to help processors solve problems, reduce costs, and make better purchasing decisions.

"We are excited about the opportunity to sponsor the worthwhile efforts of MAPP," said Randy Flamm, president and founder of IQMS. "MAPP is an organization, like IQMS, that is dedicated to helping plastic processors become more lean, agile, and profitable. In today's demand-driven economy, the knowledge base afforded by a unified group of processors like MAPP is truly indispensable and often provides a competitive edge."

As a leading single-source ERP solutions provider, IQMS designs, develops and supports its comprehensive ERP solution, EnterpriseIQ, to help manufacturers run successful, collaborative and lean business environments. IQMS customers rely on EnterpriseIQ to meet the dynamic needs of their manufacturing businesses, and many also depend on MAPP membership to advance their lean operations and best-in-class status.

"Many of our members are IQMS customers and speak highly of the value EnterpriseIQ brings to their businesses," said Tom Duffey, president of MAPP's board of directors. "IQMS and MAPP are well aligned in the same goal-helping plastics manufacturers get and stay lean. We are thrilled to have IQMS as a corporate sponsor, and we look forward to working with them toward that purpose."

Through sponsorships and membership, MAPP is able to promote the plastics manufacturing industry, and offer its members training, seminars, industry discussions, and publications. As a corporate sponsor, IQMS is working with MAPP to develop exclusive programs for MAPP members that will include pricing bonuses as well as participation in round table discussions and other industry events.
