IFS and Solnet Solutions have signed an exclusive reseller agreement that will see Solnet delivering and supporting the new IFS Applications 8 extended ERP suite in New Zealand, the two companies have announced.
“We were looking for a services partner with the skills to implement and support the new IFS Applications 8 extended ERP suite,” says Rob Stummer, managing director of IFS Australia and New Zealand. “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.”
“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," he adds.
IFS Applications complements Solnet’s existing skill-base in Java development, systems integration, mobility enablement and project management. Solnet also has extended capabilities in areas such as online communications, information management and business process integration.
“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,” says Botherway.
