The Foundation for Thailand Productivity Institute selects IFS to boost the nation’s competitiveness

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, today announced that The Foundation for Thailand Productivity Institute (FTPI), an independent organization under the Ministry of Industry for Thailand, has selected IFS to create a modern IT platform and enable future growth.

IFS Applications will be used to standardize and support FTPI’s processes within marketing, project management, procurement and financial management. The Foundation aims to implement a modern, comprehensive solution for its key processes and services in a project environment with the goal of further increasing efficiency and customer service. The IFS solution also contains effective tools that interface with FTPI’s existing systems, including human resource management, point of sale, and E-Library systems.

"With IFS Applications in place, we can plan the project more efficiently as the solutions enable us to view cost, time utilization, and available resources in real time, thus minimizing the risks of the project.  We can improve the cash flow tremendously because all the business units are tightly integrated and share a single database.  The functionality in IFS Applications meets our business requirements better than anything other solutions can offer," said Phanit Laosirirat, Ph.D., Executive Director FTPI. “Moreover, the IFS representatives have proven themselves to be skillful and competent when it comes to understanding our business, which is crucial to the long-term relationship we are now embarking on with IFS.”
