IFS Applications deployed on Microsoft Azure to support Production, Finance, HR and Supply Chain management at Thetford
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, today announced that market leader in mobile sanitary systems Thetford, based in Etten-Leur, The Netherlands, has selected IFS Applications™ as its core solution to manage its European production facilities in the Netherlands, USA, UK and Italy. The IFS solution includes Finance, HR, and Supply Chain to support Thetford’s planned growth in Europe, United States, Australia and China.
This project started with the search for a replacement of the company’s current ERP system that was no longer fit for purpose.
"After a thorough selection process, we selected IFS Applications, as we believe the solution provides the best combination of flexibility and functionality. As Thetford is a fast-growing, innovative manufacturing and development company, it was essential that we partner with a software provider that could adapt at the same rate as the business", says Peter Struijs, CFO of Thetford. "Also important was the cultural fit between our companies. We are a down to earth company and believe IFS shares similar values”.
Marco Verdonschot, Managing Director, Benelux at IFS added, “The selection of IFS to support such an innovative and fast moving company as Thetford demonstrates the agility of IFS Applications. With IFS Applications in the Cloud, Thetford has a solution which could scale alongside and meet the requirements of the fast-moving company. We are happy that Thetford will join a large number of manufacturing customers worldwide and will recognize the expertise of IFS in this industry.”
