SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- QAD Inc. (Nasdaq: QADA) (Nasdaq: QADB), a leading provider of enterprise software and services designed for global manufacturing companies, today announced that specialty baker Sinbad Foods, LLC has gone live with QAD Cloud ERP in its Madera, California headquarters.

Sinbad Foods is the largest producer of baklava in North America and also produces fillo dough, other fillo based pastries, frozen fillo appetizers and entrees (spanakopita, tyropita) and retail packaged pomegranate based frozen fruit mixes. Its products are sold through supermarkets, retail bakery outlets, club stores and gourmet and specialty stores. 

Before its acquisition by equity firm Evanston Partners in April 2017, the company, which was known as Rain Creek Baking Company, was a division of QAD customer Kronos Foods, Inc. As a division, it ran an older version of QAD Enterprise Applications, which it accessed via a server hosted in the Kronos office in Chicago. After being acquired by Evanston Partners, Sinbad needed an ERP solution that could be implemented quickly. Sinbad decided to implement QAD Cloud ERP for a number of reasons including QAD's food and beverage industry expertise and Sinbad employees' familiarity with the QAD software.  Deploying in the cloud made the transition easier and eliminated the need for involvement by Sinbad IT personnel.  Go live was achieved in under 30 days.

"The Sinbad Foods implementation illustrates QAD's commitment to and experience in the food and beverage vertical market and is a great example of how rapidly a customer can deploy their solution in the QAD Cloud," said Ed Boclair, QAD senior vice president, North America. "QAD gives Sinbad Foods a stable, reliable platform to run their operations and provides them with the ability to scale and keep pace with growth into the future."

"QAD solutions have a great reputation within the food and beverage industry," said Sinbad Foods Vice President, Finance Jeff Ellis.  "We face unique challenges in a marketplace that is constantly changing. It was important that we chose an ERP solution and partner that understood our challenges and unique market. Our goal is to master the artisanship of producing the highest quality dessert products possible, not to become systems experts.  QAD's Cloud ERP lets us focus on our business.  An added benefit was how quickly we were able to get QAD Cloud ERP up and running.  Being able to do so within 30 days was critical for us."
