Bellman & Symfon selects IFS Applications 9 to support global growth
Rapidly growing manufacturing company to replace seven business systems with one integrated IFS solution across its operations in Sweden, China, and Germany
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that the manufacturing firm Bellman & Symfon will implement IFS Applications™ 9 to consolidate key business processes. The solution was sold and will be implemented and supported by NovaCura, a member of the IFS Partner Network.
Bellman & Symfon is a manufacturer of hearing and care solutions with offices in Sweden, China and Germany, and with production facilities located in China.
Following a thorough evaluation, the company decided to implement IFS Applications 9 to streamline key processes on a global level, increasing supply chain transparency and building a closer connection to its customers with enhanced order management capabilities. This will be achieved by using the powerful finance, distribution and CRM capabilities of IFS Applications.
Bellman & Symfon will also be using several of the new IFS Applications 9 features, including IFS Lobby to create role-based interfaces for key functions and embedded CRM to connect the CRM capabilities seamlessly to the ERP system, improving sales process effectiveness.
“We needed one integrated solution to support our rapid global growth and to unify manufacturing and sales processes across three regions with production in China and sales in Europe, APAC and North America” Bellman & Symfon CEO Peter Jungvid said. “The flexibility and strong global capabilities of IFS Applications proved to fit our needs perfectly and will allow us to increase supply chain transparency and efficiency while speeding up time-to-market and making order management more effective”.
Starting April, 2016, IFS partner Novacura will start replacing Bellman & Symfon’s legacy systems with IFS Applications 9. The solution will be fully deployed in Q1 2017.
Glenn Arnesen, CEO of IFS Scandinavia added, “This is a great win for both IFS and our partner Novacura. It proves that IFS Applications is well suited for supporting rapid growth of global businesses and that it provides an integrated solution to streamline key business processes across continents.”
Having entered into several new reseller partnerships in the past year, IFS’s long-term goal is to strengthen its partner network to boost sales. Bellman & Symfon is yet another customer that joins IFS through such a partner, proving the continued success of IFS’s partner strategy among both customers and partners.
