FRIWO Power Solutions (FPS), which specializes in platform- and customer-focused network and charging devices, is a global player in the sector. The company has several international manufacturing locations and uses regional sales forces to reach its customers worldwide, particularly in the core markets of Germany, the USA, China and Japan. At the start of the new millennium, FPS set itself the medium-term goal of introducing a single set of enterprise applications and creating the basic conditions for a standardization of its business processes. At individual locations, business processes were being done differently, and direct communication between the systems was not possible. Similarly, distributors had no link to these systems. Therefore, FPS wanted to implement the best overall solution across the locations. After an evaluation process, the company opted for IFS Applications. One reason was a reference visit that demonstrated how IFS Applications was helping an automotive company with a set-up that mirrored that of FPS.
