Tieto and IFS partner to increase customer value
Partnership to strengthen sales and delivery capabilities of IFS solutions in the Baltic countries
Tieto, the leading software and services company in the Nordics, and IFS, the global enterprise applications company, have signed a partnership agreement to serve customers in industrial and services sectors with enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM), and service management solutions.
Through the partnership agreement, Tieto Latvia, a subsidiary of Tieto, has joined the IFS Partner Network as a channel partner. The partnership will strengthen both companies’ capabilities to sell and deliver IFS-based solutions in the Baltic countries.
By combining Tieto’s strong industry domain excellence, supply chain understanding, and full-stack service capabilities with IFS’s comprehensive enterprise applications, the two companies will target customers in industry verticals such as manufacturing, distribution, asset-intensive, and service.
“I am excited about this very promising collaboration between two great companies,” said Peter Muhonen, Managing Director for IFS in Finland. “ Together with Tieto, we will further expand IFS’s solutions and service capabilities in the Baltics.”
Olli Pirttijarvi, Business Development Director & Head of New Markets at Tieto, added, “We aim to be our customers’ first choice in terms of business innovation. This partnership means that we are empowered to advise, serve and partner with our customers to ensure their success around various enterprise solutions.”
Certified IFS competence is an important extension to Tieto’s partner ecosystem, which is why Tieto’s solution and delivery experts will gain competencies through IFS Academy, the official training and certification program from IFS.
