Keystone Dental, Inc. selects IFS Applications to effectively manage its business growth

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announced today that Keystone Dental Inc., of Burlington, Mass., has selected IFS Applications for enterprise resources planning (ERP) and inventory control.

Keystone Dental, a manufacturer of oral healthcare products for the tooth replacement market, has experienced recent company growth, resulting in the decision to implement an enterprise solution to effectively manage inventory and costs. By implementing IFS Applications, Keystone Dental, Inc. will gain the ability to work more closely with its suppliers through personalized eCommerce portals, efficiently control its inventory, and confidently meet FDA requirements. 

“We needed an application that would enable us to validate FDA standards,” Keystone Dental, Inc. Director of Information Technology Gary Gianetti said. “We also looked for an application that could be administered by a small IT staff and used by key users, while having the capacity to handle unlimited growth.” 

The selection of IFS Applications was initiated by experienced consultants at Corning Data Services, Inc., which will also be handling implementation of the solution.

“We recognized that Keystone Dental’s greatest challenge was selecting a system that could be quickly implemented, without jeopardizing the project’s success and without incurring exorbitant amounts on consulting,” Corning Data Services, Inc. General Manager Michael Pauley said. “IFS Applications is the best solution for helping them achieve their growth targets, while also ensuring the rapid installation they desired.”

“Growing organizations like Keystone Dental are in a challenging situation,” IFS North America President and CEO Cindy Jaudon said. “They need to run their business on increasingly sophisticated applications, and need to do so with limited IT staff resources. IFS Applications are optimized for exactly this type of customer, and we are proud to offer such powerful tools that place relatively few demands on our customers.”

The medical devices industry is one of IFS’ targeted vertical markets. IFS Applications for medical devices provides medical companies a fully integrated, paperless system that enables a shorter time-to-market, faster payback on investments, and enhances customer loyalty while complying with complex government regulations. IFS Applications has proven its ability to help customers comply with FDA requirements and offers a Software Validation Package. IFS’ medical devices customers include Camtronics Medical Systems, Bede Scientific, and KeyMed.
