QAD Inc. launched an Indonesian subsidiary, PT QAD Asia Indonesia, and entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the business assets of PT Iris Sistem Inforindo
"Indonesia has one of the fastest growing economies in the ASEAN region and is becoming one of the region's most important automotive manufacturing centers. QAD's direct presence in the country will provide global manufacturers and local companies with the full benefit of QAD's capabilities," said QAD Senior Vice President Asia Pacific, Stefan de Haar. "We see tremendous opportunity in this part of the region and we plan to leverage our investment to accelerate our market growth."
"PT Iris has been a QAD partner in South Asia for over 20 years and we have been impressed with the excellent work they have done with QAD solutions, their high customer satisfaction rates and the business value they have provided for our customers," said QAD Managing Director, South Asia, Stephen Fowler. "We look forward to serving our existing customers and new customers in Indonesia with PT QAD Asia Indonesia and expanding our share in the automotive and other manufacturing sectors in the country. I believe our cloud solutions, with their vertical focus and global capabilities are perfectly positioned for this market."
Founded in 1991 and headquartered in Jakarta, PT Iris has more than 40 employees, primarily business consultants supporting local and multinational companies in Indonesia and the ASEAN region. The company's specialties include Business Process Management (BPM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). PT Iris is a longtime distributor and system integrator for QAD solutions operating across South Asia, primarily in Indonesia. QAD does not expect a material impact to revenue or earnings in FY19 as a result of the acquisition.
"PT Iris has been a very successful partner for many years and a major contributor to our growth in Indonesia and the surrounding region," said QAD President and Founder Pam Lopker. "We are excited to add these local resources to our global capabilities."
