Leading Indian manufacturing company OBEETEE Textiles selects IFS Applications to support its growth

OBEETEE Textiles Pvt. Ltd. (OTL) has selected IFS Applications to increase its competitiveness and streamline corporate business processes.

OTL is India’s leading manufacturer and exporter of non-woven fabrics and industrial technical textiles. The company produces floor coverings, automotive felts, felts, industrial filters and geo-textiles used by companies in the automotive industry, civil engineering and construction industry.

OTL selected IFS Applications as its business application after comprehensively studying various ERP vendors such as SAP, Navision and IFS. The selected solution includes IFS Applications components for distribution, maintenance, manufacturing, business enabler, quality, and document and case management.

“We find IFS Applications really impressive and user-friendly. We wanted a best-practice industry solution which is agile, user-friendly and scalable, and we believe IFS will contribute to further competiveness and profitability for our company,” said Mr. A.P Soni, AGM & Head of IT at OTL.

The IFS solution is replacing a web-based, homegrown ERP system that was running on all OTL locations. The legacy software was not integrated to the level OTL required. The objective was to have an integrated solution covering all the facets of OTL’s business. Based on the agility and functional fit of IFS Applications, OTL decided to opt for IFS.

“IFS Applications was found suitable for our current business needs and future planning,” said Mr. Vivek Saxena, MD at OTL.

Industrial manufacturing is one of IFS’ targeted markets. IFS has a broad customer base in the industry, focusing on medium-sized to large manufacturers that need support for complex order-driven and mixed-mode manufacturing across the extended enterprise. With strong support for project management, engineering, advanced scheduling, product configuration, and after-sales support, IFS’ component-based business solutions are designed to help companies improve quality, contain costs, and improve their competitive position in manufacturing industry segments such as machinery, defense, fabricated metal products, and plastics. Industrial manufacturing companies also benefit from IFS’ lifecycle management solution, which goes beyond product lifecycle management (PLM) to provide better integration and management of three critical business areas—products, customers, and resources—throughout their lifecycles.

IFS Industrial Manufacturing customers include Star Cutter, J&H Machine Tools, Kongskilde, Nolato Group, Bombardier, GEA Pharma Systems, PartnerTech, Völkl, and Johnson Pump.
