Leading coffee roaster Löfbergs selects IFS Applications to support faster time to market
ERP solution from IFS provides Löfbergs the ability to effectively manage its supply chain across the company’s global operations, resulting in better visibility and increased efficiency as well as aligning with Löfbergs commitment on sustainablity
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, today announces that Swedish coffee roasting company Löfbergs has chosen to deploy IFS Applications™ to ensure faster time to market for its coffee products, thanks to one global supply chain and improved product development.
Following a thorough evaluation, Löfbergs selected IFS Applications to unify key processes within the company, creating a single supply chain across its operating units, with increased efficiency and visibility as a result. IFS will provide Löfbergs with an ERP solution that also will offer support for predictive analysis and digitalized and automized process handling.
”We needed a global ERP solution with a clear focus on process manufacturing for the food and beverage industry, as well as service management. With IFS, we can integrate all key processes linked to product development and get a better view across our operations and production sites. This will significantly speed up the time to market for our range of high quality coffee products,” said Lars Appelqvist, CEO at Löfbergs.
IFS is replacing several older solutions, including Microsoft and Infor, with IFS Applications to support finance, production, supply chain, purchasing, product development, sustainability management, quality management and field service functions. IFS’s ERP solution will be a platform for Löfbergs to develop and utilize the areas of digitalization and automation in order to build and develop future new business models. The implementation will include approximately 250 users across 9 countries and 3 production sites situated in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, UK, Finland, Canada, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Glenn Arnesen, CEO of IFS in Scandinavia, added: “We are very excited to be chosen to provide Löfbergs with better visibility into its business operations.
