Enterprise Asset Management

Enterprise asset management (EAM) software needs to be more than a glorified computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). And IFS Applications offers more. A lot more.

Sure, you get maintenance scheduling, work orders and other functionality necessary for reliability-centered maintenance. But you also can extend your EAM solution with human resources, purchasing, risk management, finance, document management and more.

Service Management

Whether you are providing service in the field, in a plant, at a customer’s home or office, in a depot environment, on linear or other capital assets, or anywhere else, IFS Service Management has a solution for you. This is also available regardless of whether you are delivering service through booking appointments, against demanding service level agreements (SLAs), adhering to maintenance contracts, with businesses or directly with consumers.

Mobile Workforce Management

The alignment between operations staff and field workers can make or break your bottom line. Relying on manual workflows and paperwork generated from the field is time consuming and error prone, with most of the data-entry work occurring after the fact. With limited insights and lack of access to real-time data, the scheduling of crews and equipment can be difficult and inefficient.

Our Clevest Mobile Workforce Management (MWM) solution unifies your operation across your back office, dispatch centers, and workers in the field. IFS customers benefit from automated and digital workflows so they can plan workforce capacity and schedules in advance as well as analyze and respond to situations in the moment, eliminating time-consuming paperwork for an environmentally
friendly and real-time operation.
