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.”
