Höegh LNG selects IFS Applications as its global ERP backbone
IFS Applications 10 in the cloud to replace fragmented IT environment with central platform to ensure efficiency, power global growth and support SOX compliance
London, December 16, 2019 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Höegh LNG, the industry leader in ownership and operation of modern floating and regasification units (FSRUs), has selected IFS Applications™ as its central business platform.
As a key player in the liquefied natural gas (LNG) value chain, Höegh LNG’s fleet of ten FSRUs and two LNG carriers unlock access to the global LNG market for new importing markets around the world, at a fraction of the cost and time required for the construction of an onshore LNG import terminal.
With its sights set on expanding its global business and increasing its fleet in the future, Oslo-based Höegh LNG needed a robust ERP backbone to replace its incumbent business system environment.
Thanks to its industry track record and deep industry-specific functionality, IFS was selected to support standardization of Höegh’s global business processes, increase efficiency, and reduce costs. Deployed in the IFS Managed Cloud, IFS Applications will help Höegh LNG consolidate its multi-country financials, ensuring compliance with SOX (Sarbanes–Oxley) and GAAP requirements.
“IFS stood out as the vendor that could deliver the highest value to us in terms of standard, best-practice processes,” said Sveinung J. S. Støhle, President and CEO of Höegh LNG. “As we are entering into a phase of digital transformation, we will rely on IFS Applications as our central platform to boost efficiency and make informed decisions.”
Elni Kullmer, IFS Managing Director, Nordics, added, “Leading companies in the global oil and gas industry turn to IFS to benefit from our comprehensive industry solution, which is backed by decades of industry experience and expertise. We are thrilled and proud to provide the technological foundation and business consulting competence to support Höegh LNG’s digitalization journey.”
