IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Port of Duqm in Oman has selected IFS Applications™ to facilitate the final transition from greenfield to a fully operational harbor. Implemented jointly with Envecon, Port of Duqm will be able to scale up operations as clients, personnel, and suppliers are onboarded, so it can effectively manage its core business processes.

Together, demonstrating functional and state-of-the art technical fit, Envecon will implement IFS Applications as a centrally integrated ERP solution to manage Port of Duqm’s operations. Furthermore, business intelligence and IFS Enterprise Operational Intelligence will play an integral role providing real-time insight into the business.
“The chemistry between Port of Duqm and the IFS and Envecon team during the selection process indicated a strong sharing of minds, and a common ambition to realize a mutual successful journey. Combined with exceptional industry expertise in Harbor operations and the testimonies of their customers, IFS and Envecon demonstrated their ability to meet our needs. They will play a pivotal role in scaling our operations and realizing our strategic objectives,” said Reggy Vermeulen, Chief Executive Officer, Port of Duqm.
