Electronics specialist Iftest improves efficiencies using IFS Applications
Iftest replaces exisiting ERP solution with an IFS solution to support its facilities in Switzerland and Slovakia
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Iftest AG, a leading developer and manufacturer of medical and industrial electronics, has decided to implement IFS Applications™9.
IFS Applications will support Iftest's central business processes with a continuous flow of information, increase transparency and improve the responsiveness of employees. The IFS solution will be utilized throughout the company and encompass the areas of material planning, logistics, production, sales, marketing, quality and document management as well as accounting and human resources.
With IFS Applications, Iftest will replace an existing legacy system that is no longer able to meet the current requirements of the company. Iftest plans to implement the new solution at both the company’s headquarters in Wettingen in the canton of Aargau, Switzerland and at the company's site in Jaklovce, Slovakia. The implementation will benefit more than 200 Iftest employees who will be regularly using the IFS solution.
“We were looking for a modern ERP solution that meets our specific requirements as comprehensively as possible without the need for excessive customisations. We found this solution with IFS Applications 9", said Christian Kupper, Managing Director at Iftest. “In addition to the great flexibility and engaging design of the software, it was crucial for our team to always be using the latest version of the product, without that causing an excessive burden on our IT team for arduous updates, so it’s great that IFS Applications 9 is built for being run in ‘evergreen’ mode which simplifies the implementation of updates and upgrades considerably."
“IFS has great experience and a compelling propostion for companies in the high-tech and electronics industry," said Guido Zumstein, Managing Director of IFS in Switzerland. “Iftest is a leading company in this industry and we are particularly proud that they have chosen IFS. Our sustained commitment to this market and our extensive investment in this industry have once again paid off."
