ERP Software for process manufacturers and packaged goods


There are a lot of enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions for process manufacturing. But not many of them take into consideration the real complexities faced by the industry. A batch process manufacturer is by default a mixed-mode manufacturer.

IFS Applications offers both process and discrete manufacturing capabilities in a flexible, integrated package with world class quality management and traceability from the raw material supply chain through to the finished product shipped to an individual customer. This single version of the truth contains the data necessary for streamlined compliance with HAACP, FDA, USDA, REACH and other regulations affecting process manufacturers.

A batch manufacturer requires recipe management and process manufacturing software that gracefully dovetails with discrete manufacturing functionality once the product is packaged in a discrete unit by weight.

IFS is a leading supplier to the process manufacturing industry

IFS helps process manufacturing organizations to embrace what’s next by providing:

  • Industry expertise
  • Agile software
  • Global reach
