IFS Applications and Novacura Flow will support RISE with new Finance and Project management solution

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that after an extensive public procurement process, IFS and Novacura have won the opportunity to help consolidate divisions and create a robust, future proof mobile platform for improved financial control and more efficient management in the many thousand projects handled annually by RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. The solution was sold and will be implemented by Novacura, a member of the IFS Partner Network.

RISE is divided into several divisions which support and promote all manner of innovative processes. The organization has around 100 testbeds and demonstration facilities and conducts several thousand research projects annually. In 2017, RISE initiated a process to select and new finance and project management solution to support their transformation.

After an extensive evaluation, RISE selected IFS Applications and Novacura Flow to unify their companies and divisions creating a robust, future proof mobile platform for financial control and more efficient management of their many thousand projects. The solution will provide enhanced mobile and business process support for all 2300 employees in all divisions, no matter what device is used. The solution will replace a number of on-premise systems and will be implemented as a fully managed SaaS (Software as a Service) solution.

“With IFS Applications and Novacura Flow we will get a strong finance solution with advanced project capabilities that will unify and support our complex project requirements across our companies and divisions. The user-friendliness and mobile capabilities was also a key factor in awarding IFS and Novacura the contract,” says Synnöve Helander, CFO of RISE.

The solution will be implemented by Novacura in a fully managed cloud environment, with Novacura Flow as the Business Process Management platform, fully integrated with the ERP system IFS Applications.

“We are looking forward to commencing this partnership and to help support the transformation of RISE. IFS Applications offers strong capabilities for project intensive companies and being selected by RISE is a strong testament to our solution as well as our partner Novacura’s industry expertise. This is also one of the larger cloud based installations IFS Scandinavia has been a part of to date and we see it as proof that our SaaS offering works very well in complex organizations and processes,” says Glenn Arnesen, CEO of IFS in Scandinavia.

Novacura Flow will act as a platform to support mobility and digitalization needs in all projects, spanning from Safety & Transport to Certification, and everything in between.

“We are excited about working with RISE on this complex project. With Novacura Flow, we can support them on their digital journey and help them define and manage their own processes to create real business value faster,” says Johan Melander, CEO of Novacura.
