In addition, the assessment evaluated the QMS vendors’ ability to deliver rapid time-to-value, the experience of delivering the software to manufacturers, the breadth of the vendor’s partnership base, the support for small and medium-size (SMB) manufacturers, and the solution’s ability to enable customers to meet regulatory and standards compliance.
