SPIE Nederland selects comprehensive cloud ERP solution from IFS to consolidate its IT landscape
Solution targets enhanced operations with workforce scheduling to drive efficiencies for 4,500+ SPIE Nederland staff
London, September 10, 2019 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that SPIE Nederland, the Dutch subsidiary of SPIE Group, the independent European leader in multi-technical services in the energy and communications sectors, has selected IFS Applications™, IFS Planning and Scheduling Optimization™, and operational intelligence to increase process efficiency, improve margins, and facilitate rapid integration of acquisitions.
To bolster its leading market position and ready the company for future business driven by an increasing need for digitalization, SPIE Nederland launched a comprehensive evaluation process aimed at identifying an enterprise platform that could replace its legacy business systems while improving the efficiency of all mission-critical processes.
From a short list that included solutions from some of the largest vendors in the world, SPIE Nederland chose IFS Applications for its powerful scalability, evergreen architecture, intuitive user experience, and robust, industry-specific capabilities.
“We were looking for an enterprise applications vendor that could transcend the traditional supplier role and work with us as a partner,” said SPIE Nederland CEO Lieve Declercq. “What attracted us to IFS, besides the broad and deep functional capabilities of IFS Applications, was its customer-first, business value-driven approach, which is apparent in all engagements we have had with the company to date. Another deciding factor was the highly intuitive user experience of its product suite, which will not only help us gain visual insights into our operations but also help us onboard new coworkers.”
Glenn Arnesen, IFS Regional President, Europe, added, “We are honored to be working with SPIE Nederland, which is one of the most respected names in the sector. IFS got its start in the asset-intensive, project-oriented energy sector and we are proud to have remained close to our customers in the space, and their needs. Thanks to this legacy, and what we’ve done with it, we are confident that we are uniquely positioned to help SPIE achieve its business goals.”
