IFS is not a technology company. We are an enterprise software company that uses non-proprietary technology and a component-based service oriented architecture (SOA) built on open standards to deliver truly flexible, agile solutions with a great user experience to customers.
Implementing an enterprise solution like enterprise resource planning (ERP) can be akin to dipping your business in concrete. You are frozen, unable to change and adopt new business processes and modes of operation as your business changes. But with IFS Applications, whatever challenges you face, whatever the market throws at you, your enterprise solution will adjust without jeopardizing security, and with minimal business disruption.
IFS Applications can be deployed on premise on Windows, Unix and Linux platforms, hosted, or in private and public clouds such as Windows Azure. IFS Applications is extended to mobile devices with apps on iOS, Android, and Windows.
Built using a modern, component-based, Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), IFS Applications is made up of discrete software objects that can be selected and configured based on your specific business needs.
At IFS, we develop, implement and sell applications—IFS Applications. We are not technology vendors. Rather we focus on making technology serve your business needs by harnessing its potential in innovative applications. So that everybody gets the technology that works best for their business as an integral part of the applications—without the hassle and expense of integrating disparate applications and technologies.
Find out more by downloading a resource kit below, or contact our CTO, Dan Matthews, and find out why he thinks service is more important than servers.
We pioneered component-based applications well over a decade ago to let you decide what you implemented, and when. And we built our product on service-oriented architecture for a similar reason— to give you the agility to adapt your business software to your daily and long-term requirements. Based on standards, it ensures low total cost of ownership and a high degree of deployment options. For more technical details, you can download a resource kit below. But before you do, check out the presentation opposite and listen to Dan, our CTO, whose only real interest in technology is how it makes our customers more profitable. Or contact him directly. Talking to Dan could be your best business decision ever.
Security is built into the very framework of our applications—it’s as simple as that. We use established technologies with proven security features that give you maximum protection—the most secure configuration options are always the default. Yet you still retain the openness, agility and freedom of choice that are typical of IFS Applications. That’s because we know that protecting the information you produce and own—and your business interests—is an essential part of running an enterprise efficiently and profitably. Security is never a mere ‘optional extra’. Download more detailed information in our resource kit . Then contact our CTO, Dan, and find out why security is not an issue for users of IFS Applications.
We’re so used to talking about IFS Applications as a single product that it’s easy to forget it consists of components, right down to the very core of its structure. The reason is integration—the result of an applications design with an eye for user needs and business efficiency. Wherever they work in the application, with financials, projects or service management, for example, users always get the familiar look and feel of a single product. What’s more, IFS Applications supports integrated business processes, seamlessly linking your systems to those of customers and partners—or operating in parallel with your own legacy software. And this also applies to productivity tools such as the Microsoft Office suite to facilitate reporting in spreadsheets and other documentation. Download a resource kit to find our more. Or better still. Talk to Dan, our CTO. He’ll tell you in plain language how integrated business applications save you time, money and effort—and perhaps even your business.
We don’t like the idea of limiting our agility and room to maneuver by being locked into a particular technology—so why should you have to? And why should you be prevented from adapting to market demands because you have the ‘wrong’ software? As new technology enters the market, it offers new opportunities and new challenges. So we evaluate innovations as they come along and integrate them if they add value. Just look at XML, .NET, web services—who thought about them 10 years ago? Today, they’re industry standards. And standards are what we sell because they reduce legacy and cut maintenance costs. What were novelties a few years ago are now an integral part of IFS Applications. From the first conceptual designs to the final product and the platforms on which they work, everything is built for change.
Read the details in our resource kit or, even better, contact our CTO, Dan, whose take on change is ”If it’s good for your business, it’s part of IFS Applications.”
One of the greatest wastes of time and money in business is software that lies unused. And one of the main reasons why business applications are not used is that it’s often ‘simply too much work’, as one user put it.
Those days are over. IFS Applications has a user interface that is more than just a pretty face. Driven by tasks, roles and work milieu, it makes it easier for users to penetrate the depths of the business applications in a couple of clicks—as they would do in an Internet search. And users can customize their desktop to optimize it for the work they need to do. After all, what engineers in an office need might differ completely from the needs of field service personnel. We’ve achieved this by collaborating with our customers and listening to their needs. Download a resource kit for more information. Or call Dan, our CTO, who’s not interested in user-friendliness—he’s passionate about it.
