Consolidation and global expansion at the fore as Savoye selects ERP solution from IFS
Full-suite IFS ERP solution to ensure harmonized processes for all Savoye users across seven countries
London, November 3, 2020 – Responding to a legacy of strong organic and inorganic global growth, customized logistics solutions engineering company Savoye has turned to global enterprise applications company IFS for a joined-up enterprise resource planning (ERP) backbone. The implementation project will be delivered by IFS Partner K4-U, part of the Kardol Group.
Headquartered in Dijon, France, Savoye offers a large portfolio of solutions to meet the needs of logistics organizations, from the simplest to the most complex, serving both SMEs and key accounts.
Looking to replace its legacy business system, which was rapidly reaching the end of its lifecycle, Savoye scanned the market for a fully integrated suite of applications that could offer deep industry-specific capabilities while ensuring out-of-the-box support for a multi-site and multi-country business.
The choice fell on IFS and K4-U for the ideal combination of functional breadth and implementation excellence. The IFS solution will cover Savoye’s entire value chain, from manufacturing, quality management and supply chain management to maintenance, field service management and B2B collaboration. K4-U demonstrated its ability to meet Savoye's expectations through its domain expertise and its pragmatic approach based on more than 20 years of experience implementing ERP solutions.
“Where we previously had to work with several different tools and systems depending on our activities and geographical locations, with IFS we will be able to work with a centralized solution,” said Rémy Jeannin, CEO of Savoye. “This will not only save us time, but also allow us to work in a unified way for better data accuracy, which will improve our project management and decision-making.”
Christophe Ceze, Managing Director, IFS France, added, “For decades, IFS has been helping global manufacturers consolidate their processes and value chains across different currencies, countries, and continents. We are thrilled to help Savoye power its international ambitions and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial collaboration.”
Antoine Desmarescaux, Kardol Group Sales Director, concluded, "Savoye is a reputable company in its sector and we are very proud to be able to contribute to improving the performance of its services. IFS offers a full-suite solution ideally suited for this context, and our teams are already actively working to make this project a success".
