Service-centric ERP solution from IFS delivered in the Cloud to support Samhall on its digitalization journey
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Swedish service provider Samhall has selected IFS Applications™ 10 as its new ERP platform to support the company on its journey to optimize and simplify key business processes while making work more productive and rewarding for its 25,000 employees.
Samhall AB is one of Sweden’s largest service providers, offering services in the areas of cleaning and laundry, warehousing and logistics, workplace and property services, care services, as well as retail, industry and manufacturing.
