STEVENS POINT, Wis. (Jan. 19, 2017) – Skyward, a leading provider of administrative solutions, introduces its Qmlativ Municipality Management Suite, the next evolution of the company’s ERP technology. The SQL-based platform features a revolutionary user experience, preemptive support measures and a focus on the growth and development of every user.

“Qmlativ is truly the epitome of a better ERP experience,” said Skyward CEO Cliff King. “We are excited to deliver this next-generation, user-focused technology to support the ever-changing needs of our clients and emerging trends in local and county government.”

Development of the product began more than six years ago and it has been installed at early-adopter municipalities since 2015. The platform’s simplified interface and commonsense navigation are designed to ensure a successful and enjoyable experience for even the least tech-savvy users.

Qmlativ’s built-in report writer allows users to easily generate customized reports without requiring additional programming skills. In addition, the exclusive Help Center is the ultimate self-service tool, delivering intelligent search capability, multimedia tutorials and interactive flowcharts to users.

The flexible architecture offers clients a tailored experience without requiring extra fees for customization. Embedded customization and workflow tools are included to meet the unique needs of users while managing important tasks and processes.

“An overarching goal of Qmlativ is to deliver the right information to the right person, every time,” said Ray Ackerlund, chief marketing officer at Skyward. “This level of personalization and customization makes Qmlativ the most innovative solution of its kind.”

Skyward will continue to support the current product line, for the foreseeable future.
