IFS Labs Success Stories

Research by IFS Labs has resulted in a number of new, useful capabilities.

These are some of our success stories:

  • IFS IoT Business Connector, announced at the World Conference 2016, originated in IFS Labs. It started out as a proof of concept project with the urban transport operator, Sporveien, in Oslo, Norway, whose trains are equipped with sensors capturing large amounts of data about their service needs, enabling flexible, predictive maintenance, lower costs, and, ultimately, more trains running.
  • IFS Streams, launched in IFS Applications 9, is a perfect example of IFS Labs research turning into business benefits. IFS Streams is a notification system designed to keep users close to the business by actively pushing out notifications triggered by updates and actions in IFS Applications, all customizable for each unique user.
  • IFS Touch Apps is a series of smartphone apps for Android, iOS, and Microsoft Windows Phone. Each app focuses on specific tasks such as expense and purchase approvals, customer relations management and time reporting. IFS Touch Apps utilize features such as GPS, voice recording and photo capture.
  • IFS Talk, inspired by Facebook and Twitter, lets users collaborate with peers in real time by posting thoughts or queries within the safe environment of IFS Applications. All conversations (we call them Scribbles) are stored within the system for better knowledge retention.
