In addition to project management, financials, supply chain management, sales and service, maintenance, and document management, Service Stream will implement IFS Mobile Work Order to enable its field service staff to improve productivity and secure data quality.

Scheduled for completion in 2016, IFS will provide a single platform giving visibility to company executives and managers into program and project performance.
