IFS Applications – a single product that combines best-of-breed solutions with a complete suite of component-based ERP software. 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 & 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 & Beverage and Aerospace & Defence 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 minimise business disruption. And as their business needs change, IFS Applications changes with them.
Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) needs to be more than a glorified Computerised 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 specialised best-of-breed software for field service, schedule optimisation and mobile service, reverse logistics and more.
A range of tools to deliver visual insight, understand enterprise performance and enable better decision making. The IFS Enterprise Operational Intelligence (EOI) solution forms part of the IFS visual insight strategy and enables a full 360 degree, enterprise-wide, top-down perspective of processes and performance aligned with the business strategy.
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 & Defence, 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.
