Solnet brings IFS applications to NZ

23 Aug 12

IFS and Solnet have entered an exclusive reseller agreement which sees the IT solutions provider delivering and supporting the new IFS Applications 8 extended ERP suite across New Zealand.

Delivered leveraging Agile development practices, IFS Applications 8 combines the revolutionary IFS Enterprise Explorer user interface with market-leading functionality focused on industries, complementing Solnet’s existing skill-base in Java development and systems integration.

Focussing on industries where any of four core processes are strategic such as service & asset management, manufacturing, supply chain and projects, IFS says Solnet’s proven and reliable service and support capability was a factor in the deal.

“We were looking for a services partner with the skills to implement and support the new IFS Applications 8 extended Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) suite,” says Rob Stummer, managing director, IFS ANZ.

“We also wanted a partner with a strong solutions capability to take IFS into industries in New Zealand where our four core processes resonate. Solnet ticked all the boxes.”

In offering comprehensive and market-leading ERP functionality on a modern, open technology platform, IFS says IFS Applications 8 gives organisations within targeted industries a compelling choice over other suites.

“IFS offers a highly rated ERP solution with a number of compelling advantages,” says Mark Botherway, Managing Director for Solnet Solutions.

“The solution delivers clear benefits in a range of sectors, with integrated project support and world-leading Enterprise Asset Management capabilities.

“It is a modular solution, based on open standards, that is designed to be integrated with legacy systems.

“This adds up to an ERP solution with a significantly lower cost of ownership compared with other offerings in the market.

“IFS’s focus on service and asset, projects, and supply chain is a good fit for many New Zealand enterprises and we have already identified considerable interest among organisations with large workforces and with asset investments centred around construction and public infrastructure maintenance.”
