Suzuki Garphyttan turns to IFS and TietoEVRY for end-to-end business process support
IFS ERP cloud solution to drive manufacturing and supply-chain efficiency and visibility across company sites in six countries
London, June 2, 2020 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Suzuki Garphyttan, a world-leading supplier of advanced spring wire and part of the Japanese Nippon Steel Corporation, has selected IFS Applications™ in partnership with TietoEVRY to support all mission-critical business processes, from business opportunity to delivery.
Originally established in 1906, Sweden-based Suzuki Garphyttan has been manufacturing advanced spring wire for more than a century. With plans to expand its market share in target sectors such as automotive, food and beverage, and medical equipment, the company needed to replace its legacy business solutions with a central enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform capable of driving its business process from end to end across its global operations.
Operating against stringent requirements in the form of quality assurance, legal compliance, and reliable product delivery, Suzuki Garphyttan wanted a comprehensive ERP platform that could support the business beyond traditional manufacturing processes. The solution also needed to support product planning, testing, and tracking throughout the company’s supply chain.
Following a comprehensive evaluation process, Suzuki Garphyttan selected IFS Applications in the IFS Managed Cloud and TietoEVRY as implementation partner.
“With the new IFS solution, paired with TietoEVRY’s implementation competence, we are convinced that we have found a central platform that will help us ensure customer satisfaction and further expansion globally,” said Anders Jonsson, Global IT Manager at Suzuki Garphyttan.
Elni Kullmer, IFS Managing Director, Nordics, added, “We are thrilled to get the chance to work with Suzuki Garphyttan, which is a highly respected brand in the automotive sector and beyond. Empowering multi-site, global manufacturers with designed-for-purpose capabilities to drive efficiencies and improve decision-making is very much in our wheelhouse. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership.”
IFS Applications will be deployed in the cloud to support business-critical process including manufacturing, enterprise asset management (EAM), supply chain, financials, CRM, and human capital management (HCM). The solution will be deployed by leading IT consultancy and IFS Gold Partner Tieto EVRY.
