IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that its solutions, including IFS Applications, IFS Field Service Management and IFS Mobile Workforce Management, have reached the 1-million mark in terms of number of active users. Current IFS customer Linamar is expanding the use of IFS Applications within its business and is being assigned the millionth IFS user seat.
Global diversified automotive and industrial manufacturer Linamar first chose IFS to support its business processes in 2005. The company has since continuously expanded its use of IFS Applications, which is today used by some 2 600 Linamar staff working at 37 plants in nine countries.
Presented with a “One Millionth User” commemorative plaque at the 2015 IFS World Conference in Boston were Linamar representatives Lori Gofton and Lorrie Weiss.
“I am very happy to accept this recognition on behalf of the company. IFS Applications is a highly flexible system that continues to help us save cost, increase productivity, and improve decision-making,” Linamar IFS implementation manager Lori Gofton said. “The one millionth user acknowledgement actually coincides with our tenth anniversary with IFS Applications, so our increase of user licenses is well timed and demonstrates the importance IFS has in supporting Linamar’s key business processes!”
IFS CEO Alastair Sorbie said, “We are very proud to announce the millionth user of our products, which is a major milestone in our company’s history and a true testament to the success of our solutions in the market. By working closely with companies across our focus markets, and listening to their feedback, we are able to offer robust industry solutions that help businesses stay agile in a dynamic and ever-changing world. All of us at IFS look forward to keeping up the momentum by continuing to deliver compelling solutions that meet our customers’ needs.”
