It found software from a top vendor such as SAP AG too expensive. Meanwhile, many of the small-business offerings at the time didn’t have enough features to help the company accurately track revenue flows over the course of a project. IFS Applications was able to install parts of its project-management software and train Mr. Holik’s staff at a third of the cost of SAP software.” the Wall Street Journal — John Holik, manager of project Administration, tlt-babcock, Inc., “Keeping track of business”

  • 8. uSAbIlIty WItH IFS enterprISe explorer “The (IFS Enterprise Explorer) user interface resembles a mash up of Microsoft Vista and the ” iPhone-iVista, maybe? Regardless, if your new interface is reminiscent of the newest products from two of the biggest brain trusts in human/computer interface design, you’re doing something right.” Industry Week — brad Kenney “Globalization, Swedish Style” ” Ray Wang considers IFS one of the leading companies in the business with respect to user interfaces. “Neither SAP, its main competitor, nor Oracle have come as far. The importance of easy-to-use interfaces is increasing as enterprise applications are being used more widely and a new generation of users is entering business. Young people are used to the Internet, mobile devices, and computer games. Enterprise applications will have to mimic these if they are to reach a wider audience,” says Ray Wang. r “ray” Wang | partner—enterprise Strategy | Altimeter Group, llc

AddItIonAl AnAlySt And cuStomer QuoteS “IFS Applications’ broad and comprehensive family of business applications meet many of the specific needs of today’s project-oriented companies in key functional areas of their operations from contract management to project management, and from engineering and manufacturing to finance and human resource (HR) management. IFS’ vision and proven ability to draw together the diverse collection of business data into a set of meaningful information that can be used in context to help project-oriented companies plan and execute their projects more effectively is impressive.” cImdata review — “product lifecycle management for project-oriented enterprises” “Eighty-eight percent of all sales quotes are now generated and e-mailed to the customer automatically. This has freed our support staff to work on more difficult projects... Prior to IFS, a machine could be ordered with the wrong option or an option that may require additional kits for installation that were not ordered. These mistakes might not be discovered until the machine arrives at the customer’s site, which costs up to $10,000 to correct. Since the implementation, this is no longer a problem.” destinationcrm.com — J&H machine tools, “Secret of my Success: A crm manufacturing makeover” “Before implementing IFS Applications, it took 4-6 months to build one mobile welder, now (with IFS Applications) it takes 45 days, allowing us to build 6-8 mobile welders in the time it used to take to build one. This moved us ahead of schedule in delivering the mobile welders. That alone saved us enough money to pay for the IFS system. In retrospect, the general manager of our welding business unit flatly stated that we wouldn’t have stood a chance without IFS.” Holland company, James tieri, It director
