GACHES CHIMIE selects IFS Applications to power its international growth
Rapidly growing chemical distributor to deploy comprehensive IFS solution to fuel digital transformation across its international value chain
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that French distribution company GACHES CHIMIE has chosen IFS ApplicationsTM to optimize its operations in France, the Netherlands, Spain, Mexico, Morocco, and Tunisia.
Founded in 1948, GACHES CHIMIE specializes in chemical products distribution and related industrial services.
GACHES CHIMIE was previously running a legacy business system that could not offer full support of its various processes. The company needed a solution that could offer comprehensive process support to accelerate its international expansion, automate asset data capture, and effectively manage compliance with national and international standards. Following a thorough evaluation process involving several major ERP vendors, GACHES CHIMIE chose IFS Applications.
