IFS one of the first ERP vendors to offer business smartphone apps on Samsung KNOX™

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has recently released the smartphone app IFS Notify Me™ on Samsung KNOX, the comprehensive platform for secure enterprise mobility. The release makes IFS among the first business software vendors to actively leverage the platform for the benefit of its customers.

Samsung KNOX is the comprehensive enterprise mobile solution that addresses the mobile security needs of enterprise IT without invading the privacy of its employees. The platform’s multi-layered security ensures secure deployment of Android apps in line with the standards of the enterprise network.

IFS Notify Me is an enterprise smartphone app for approving and authorizing purchase requisitions and orders, supplier invoices, and travel expenses.  Starting with Notify Me, IFS intends to make the entire family of IFS Touch Apps available on Samsung KNOX.

“As one of the first business applications vendors, IFS will be able to offer its customers the advanced security and management features of Samsung KNOX, protecting enterprise data from leakage, malware, and malicious attacks,” Dr. Injong Rhee, Senior Vice President of Technology Strategy, KNOX Business and B2B R&D Group at Samsung Electronics said. “By creating a secure zone on the device for corporate applications and data, the user’s personal data is kept private.”

“Security is a theme that permeates all of our solutions, which is why we decided to extend our IFS Touch Apps series to the Samsung KNOX platform,” IFS CTO Dan Matthews said. “More and more companies are implementing BYOD strategies, creating a need for a compartmentalized Android platform that guarantees security in a seamless and intuitive manner.”
