LKS chooses IFS Applications to streamline project management
IFS business partner LKS Group invests in IFS solutions to consolidate management and power its international expansion
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that the engineering division of LKS, one of the leading providers of professional consulting services in Spain, has chosen IFS Applications™.
A member of the IFS Partner Network since 2013, the engineering division of LKS is part of the Mondragón Corporation, which consists of several cooperative societies and more than twenty portfolio companies. Its engineering division offers professional services in the fields of architecture, industry and energy, infrastructure, real estate consulting, and design services.
Headquartered in northern Spain, LKS Group has expanded its international presence to countries including China, Colombia, India, Peru, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico, and Uruguay. Given the company’s recent growth and increasing complexity, LKS needed to implement a flexible management system that is aligned with its growing international presence.
IFS Applications will be deployed at 4 sites located in Spain, India, Colombia, and Perú for 244 LKS Group employees to enable integrated management of projects and finances throughout the group's subsidiaries. The solution will also streamline management of resources and will offer a quick and reliable extraction of consolidated business data. IFS CRM and HR solutions will be implemented during a second phase.
”We chose IFS Applications because of its robust support for project management as a core feature, which is key to our business,” General Director of engineering division of LKS, Alberto Gorroñogoitia said. “IFS met all of our requirements with its unique ERP product, unlike other providers, whose portfolios are often a patchwork of separate systems. Furthermore, the solution will be implemented by LKS Consulting Group’s IFS support team, which is an additional benefit from selecting IFS Applications—a close implementation team in a project of this magnitude is very important.”
“It is very satisfying to welcome LKS as a customer since we already have a positive and mutually beneficial partner relationship,” IFS Ibérica CEO Gustavo Brito said. “Our project management capabilities have been designed to support global businesses in some of the world’s most demanding industries. We are confident that LKS will benefit from our best-practice solutions and we look forward to helping them achieve their goals.”
The LKS Group is one of the leading companies in the professional services industry in Spain. It is part of the Engineering and Services Division of Mondragón Corporation, the leading Basque Country business group and the seventh largest company in Spain, made up of 239 companies, more than 80,000 people and 15 technology centres.
The LKS Engineering Division offers professional services in the fields of architecture, industry and energy, infrastructure and expertise in real estate consulting and design services.
