Technogroup supports international growth with IFS Applications 9


IT service provider Technogroup replaces its existing solutions and aligns business processes with integrated enterprise software from IFS

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Technogroup IT-Service GmbH, one of the leading IT service providers in the DACH region, is implementing IFS Applications™ 9 to support its international growth with an integrated, all-in-one solution. The contract comprises licenses and services with a total value of over 1.2 million euros.

Technogroup, based in Hochheim am Main, is specialized in hardware and software in datacenters, and has more than 35 operations across Europe. With IFS Applications 9, Technogroup will replace its existing software suite, which has data redundancies, with an integrated, all-in-one solution from IFS that will help fuel the company’s international growth.

Technogroup will improve the quality of data within the company and combine all business processes in one comprehensive solution. The solution will enable Technogroup management to achieve better understanding and control of its operations to improve the quality of its mission-critical services.

The comprehensive IFS solution contains components for accounting, supply chain, engineering, maintenance, sales and services, service management, project management, human resources, document management, and business intelligence.

”With its broad solution offering, IFS Applications was best suited to meet our requirements,” said Peter Ritzenhofen, Director of IT & Quality management at Technogroup. ”With the new solution, we can integrate all business processes in one place and substantially benefit from its strong service orientation. IFS showed a good understanding of our needs, and the team is well resourced internationally, which is a good fit considering our ambitious growth plans.”

”Even IT companies need efficient business software,” said Peter Höhne, Vice President Sales & Marketing at IFS Europe Central. ”We are looking forward to working with Technogroup and are confident in our ability to support Technogroup’s continued success with its planned growth ambitions. From our first meeting, it was clear that our company cultures mirror each other.”
