IFS develops and delivers agile, component-based software for enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM) and field service management (FSM). Available worldwide, its user-friendly software lets you meet—even anticipate—changes in technology and business so that you can stay one step ahead of your competitors.
IFS Applications is a single, agile, application suite that
delivers enterprise asset management (EAM), enterprise resource planning (ERP),
enterprise project management and supply chain management to demanding and
global businesses. IFS Applications’ EAM functionality handles more than
maintenance – with full maintenance repair and overhaul, field service management and asset lifecycle management capabilities.
Our ERP solution is ideal for demanding discrete and process manufacturing environments including those with heavy traceability requirements like food and beverage and aerospace and defense as well as project-centric settings like engineer to order manufacturing and engineer, procure construct contracting.
How does IFS Applications meet the needs of these very challenging industries? By extending typical ERP functionality with best-in-class functionality for document management, project management, service management, quality control and management, customer relationship management and more, all in an agile, pure play application architecture. So our customers can implement the essential functionality they need and expand their footprint of IFS Applications over time to minimize business disruption. And as their business needs change, IFS Applications changes with them.
management (EAM) needs to be more than a glorified computerized maintenance
management system (CMMS). It needs to accommodate asset lifecycle management
(ALM). And that is what IFS delivers. IFS got its start as an EAM vendor, so
all of the functionality that comprises IFS Applications, including document
management, risk management, finance, inventory, contract management and more
can be part of your EAM environment in IFS Applications. Implement simple work
orders and maintenance inventory, or a full suite of functionality designed to
support cradle-to-grave ALM for asset intensive-companies.
IFS Enterprise Service Management (ESM) is a full service
lifecycle management solution for every service provider. Whether you are
providing service in the field, in a plant, at a customer’s home or office, in
a depot environment, on linear or other capital assets, or anywhere else, IFS
ESM has a solution for you. The solution set consists of service management
functionality from IFS Applications and highly specialized best-of-breed
software for field service, schedule optimization and mobile service, reverse
logistics and more.
IFS approaches BI as a natural extension of the enterprise
environment. Streamlined BI executions are offered that add minimal cost and
complexity to an instance of IFS Applications.
But IFS also focuses on “BI built in,” an approach to embedding
actionable BI directly into the IFS Applications interface.
Supply chain management functionality is an embedded and
advanced component in IFS Applications. This makes for a powerful logistics
solution in demanding environments like aerospace and defense, oilfield
services or multi-location manufacturing.
IFS approaches CRM not as a standalone piece of software, but as an embedded component of ERP. This “back office CRM” means that information across the functional stack can be arranged by customer, allowing you to more profitably manage the customer lifecycle and improve service through a 360 degree view of what is going on with each customer.
Across the entire application, project management is a core
component and can be leveraged as Project-driven ERP or even Project Portfolio
Management. Plant shutdowns, product launches, engineering projects and even
asset and product lifecycles can be managed intelligently in IFS Applications.
