Pros

The ease at which the system can be manipulated definitely makes things easier. Being able to add notes to work orders is very handy, and easily done with this application

Cons

The hardest thing about the maintenance side is trying to find the asset ID's with in the system, also having to use multiple windows to conduct one complete action is frustrating.

Pros

IFS was a great software choice if you have multiple countries that you need to consolidate. The reporting module allows you flexibility to create reports.

Cons

There was a longer learning curve with IFS than software I have used in the past. When you are dealing with multiples entities there are many steps that you need to go through.

Bad advices from consultants

Ease-of-use

Value for Money

Pros

Many functionalities that seem to do exactly what we want. IFS looks intuitive and together with the system manual you will be able to make some small steps yourselve.

Cons

Often bad advice is received, where the IFS consultants don't even know how their own system works. This ends up in our company investigating and testing ourselves how some functionalities work. Handling of bugs by IFS is not customer friendly, and even if they admit that there is a design mistake in their software it will be unlikely for them to solve it. Another big disadvantage is the lack of a large online, open community.

I don't know if IFS was the right choice when we selected an ERP, but after the time and money invested it is what we're 'stuck' with. Our product and processes are so specialized and IFS doesn't really work well outside the box.

Recommendations

Do a ton of research before implementation. IFS has a lot more power and uses than what we currently use it for - it isn't an easy fix. We would need to fully reimplement in order to take advantage of these other sections of IFS.

If I had one wish, I wish IFS could be either a SQL base or Oracle base product.

the most trouble I had is searching for past data. once I got more experience it is easier.

get training for your precise job. IFS can do so much and without someone teaching you it is hard to be able to be as efficient as you could be.

Includes everything from opportunity to product delivery. When implemented properly, there is no need for outside programs to encompass all aspects of your business.

Likes Least

Not always user friendly, too many times if you don't have real good knowledge of the areas you are working with, you don't know how to solve problems because you don't know where the missing/invalid data resides.

Recommendations

Choose core team members that are willing to do their homework on how each functional area ties to one another

The vendor relationship is very good. I really enjoy the various user group meetings that are held. The product is fairly straight forward.

Our original implementation was rough. I don't feel like the consultants really understood our needs in order to help us move to our first ERP.

Recommendations

Make sure that you a realistic about changing current business processes to fit the software. Without change ERP will not suit you well in most situations.

The product is very user-friendly, and having loads of feature for power sectors. The most important thing is that it is easy to customize and easy to learn for users.

They take too much time for resolving issues and doing customization.

The main thing to look at is the cost of the product, which is very good, provided with the features in this ERP.

Our company has used IFS Applications for four years now. The user interface is unintuitive, arduous to use and navigate.

When our company first switched to IFS we quickly realized as users the software was not even on par with an alpha release and it has not become better over time. The IFS company will not repair shortcomings of the software unless be pay them a hansom sum.
