Oil & gas contractor Apply Sørco live with IFS Applications
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Apply Sørco, a Norwegian multidiscipline engineering and contracting company in the oil and gas industry, has implemented IFS Applications™ for EPCI contractors. Among the benefits are enhanced data quality, more efficient project, resource and risk management, as well as reduced complexity in the company’s IT environment.
- On-time rollout of IFS Applications to some 900+ users working on- and offshore
- Standard IFS industry solution supports business-critical processes such as engineering, construction, project and resource management, and supply chain management
- Consolidation of existing IT environment drives project control and enhanced risk management
Headquartered in Stavanger, Norway, Apply Sørco has its background in multidiscipline engineering, offshore construction and contracting, focusing on upgrading the performance of on- and offshore oil and gas facilities.
Following an efficient and on-time 13-month implementation project, IFS Applications has been deployed for some 900 users in Apply Sørco, with projects being managed worldwide. The IFS solution has replaced a large number of standalone legacy systems to offer integrated, real-time control of processes such as engineering, construction, project management, supply chain, HSEQ, financials, and HR.
The solution has also enabled enhanced resource management, ensuring smooth deployment of engineering services and delivery of systems to customer sites all over the world without increasing the back-office headcount.
“The implementation is a strategic initiative to ensure more efficient project execution throughout our value chain,” Apply Sørco Senior Vice President Tove Tyberø said. “Apply Sørco has grown substantially over the past years, which means that we are managing increasingly large and complex projects. IFS Applications enables us to continue to grow and deliver on-time projects with higher quality and increased efficiency.”
“We are very pleased to announce yet another successful implementation project, delivered on time and on budget,” IFS Scandinavia CEO Glenn Arnesen said. “By working with some of the world’s leading companies in the oil and gas industry, we have accumulated robust industry experience, which is reflected in our speedy deployments and in the IFS solution itself. We are convinced that Apply Sørco will continue to benefit from the agility and scalability of IFS Applications and we look forward to the continuation of our collaboration.”
