Winterheller Software becomes IFS Global Software Partner

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, today announced that Winterheller Software has joined the IFS Global Software Partner Program. Combined with IFS Applications, Winterheller’s Professional Planner brings customers a proven, reliable corporate performance management solution.

Winterheller’s Professional Planner is an easy to-use-and secure corporate performance management (CPM) solution that eliminates the problems that frequently arise when working with spreadsheets during budgeting and forecasting. These include risk of errors in formulas, heavy workload, and long response times. Professional Planner can be integrated with income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements in IFS Applications without tweaking and is thus quickly implemented. The combined strengths of the two solutions enable documents supporting the budget process to be generated faster and more accurately.

“By working with partners such as Winterheller Software, we are able to offer our customers a wider choice of business functionality and enable them to become more agile,” said Peder Daxberg, Vice President Global Alliances at IFS. “We can collaborate closely with our software partners because IFS Applications is based on a service-oriented architecture with which partners can easily integrate their components.”

“IFS’ world-class solution is industry-focused, providing a real alternative to the market. Our solution complements IFS Applications well by providing financial departments with a CPM solution that meets any expectations” said Peter Mörtl, Director of Business Development at Winterheller Software.
