Application form to apply for the IFS Innovation Award
IFS Labs, part of IFS Research & Development, combines consumer technology with business applications to create user-friendly enterprise tools that make everyday work more productive, efficient and fun.
“We are always searching for intelligent solutions that can simplify businesses’ or users’ work processes. Although our ambition has never been to invent new trends, we are constantly looking for innovative ways to combine existing ideas that result in real business value.
We ask ourselves: “How can this technology benefit the user?” If the answer is “it can’t,” we leave it by the wayside. If we find real potential in the idea, we implement it into our portfolio.”
“Whatever technology we choose to explore, it must always center on the user and offer a productive, elegant and enjoyable work environment.”
