IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that its extended capabilities for enterprise asset management (EAM) has been positioned as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Asset-Intensive EAM Applications 2019 Vendor Assessment*.

After a thorough evaluation of IFS's strategies and capabilities, the IDC MarketScape has positioned the company in the Leaders Category in this report for SaaS and cloud-enabled asset-intensive EAM applications. The research study notes the following strengths in IFS’s suite of technology:
- Project and asset life cycle: IFS's EAM software includes deep functionality for managing the whole project and asset life cycle, with an advanced dynamic scheduling and optimization engine plus a mobile solution.
- Full enterprise functionality: IFS offers a full enterprise offer for asset management including integrated finance, supply chain, HR, manufacturing, project, quality, HSE, and service management features and functions.
