Rapidly growing Kaihong Flavor selects IFS Applications 9 to unify business operations

Kaihong Flavor

Well-known Chinese flavor supplier replaces disparate business systems with an integrated solution from IFS

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Kaihong Flavor, one of China’s market leaders in food flavor, will implement IFS Applications™ 9 to strengthen the company's digital management capabilities and fully support the its rapidly growing overseas business. The first phase to be implemented will support finance, HR, supply chain, project, and manufacturing.

Due to its rapid domestic and international growth, Kaihong Flavor needed to replace its legacy business systems, which could no longer support the company’s strategic development.

Low efficiency and disparate information was to blame for some of the bottlenecks restricting the growth of the company. After a failed attempt to implement a local Chinese ERP solution, the team at Kaihong Flavor searched for a proven solution that could support its global operations. After an extensive evaluation process, Kaihong Flavor selected IFS Applications 9 as its new system to unify its internal systems, improve management efficiency, and streamline core business processes.

“We are very happy to be partnering with IFS to consolidate our operations, and improve our productivity,” said Mr. Zhou, General Manager of Kaihong Flavor. “We have been eager to develop a digital enterprise for quite a long time—a process that IFS Applications will support as we focus on growth and overseas business expansion. After hiring a third-party advisory institution to participate in our selection, we found that IFS had exemplary industry knowledge and customer references, as well as a very professional consulting team. We are confident that IFS is the right partner to support our strategic growth plans now and in the future.”

Raymond Lam, general manager of IFS in China, added, “We are honored to welcome Kaihong Flavor to our already strong client base in the process manufacturing sector. We look forward to supporting Kaihong Flavor to streamline its core business processes and enhance operational efficiency through our knowledge and experience of the industry.”
