IFS North America announces new services partners in Montreal and Minnesota

“A number of our customers have complex manufacturing needs, and IFS Applications for project enterprise resource planning (ERP) will help us address customer business models like engineer-to-order,” Negotium Vice President Marc Otis said. “Other customers are heavily asset-driven, and now that we can serve them with IFS Applications enterprise asset management (EAM) software, we will be better able to help them maximize the value of capital assets over their lifecycles.

The second new IFS services partnership is with Enterprise Consulting, Inc. - a consulting firm specializing in optimization, upgrades and improvements in current enterprise software as well as selection and implementation of new software. 

“IFS has a strong foothold with the type of industrial companies we tend to serve in the upper Midwest and the rest of the United States,” Enterprise Consulting CEO Mike Tapper said. “In an environment where middle market and large enterprises are increasingly risk averse, IFS, with its conservative approach, will be an excellent fit for complex industrial organizations.”

“Negotium has an excellent reputation in the Canadian market,” IFS North America Vice President-Services Dean Flitter said. “And just as importantly, they come to our partnership program with years of IFS implementation experience, so they have a number of consultants ready to start driving value for our shared customers. We have also known and respected Enterprise Consulting for quite some time. Consultants with both companies have met the standards we set out for our services partners. As the head of our professional services team, I look forward to working both with Negotium and Enterprise Consulting, and am confident they have the skill set and professionalism to treat our customers as we would treat them ourselves.”
