“We chose IFS as our ERP partner because of its experience and proven track record in our industry,” MAURER head of controlling Max Meincke said. “IFS’s expertise was repeatedly confirmed through our interaction with the IFS team and through a number of customer reference visits. We are convinced that IFS Applications will support our business processes and help us power our international expansion.”
