WeChat-based mobile interface for IFS Applications launched by CAMC Engineering


CAMC Engineering provides employees with access to key business information in IFS Applications using the popular WeChat mobile platform

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that in partnership with China CAMC Engineering Co., Ltd. (CAMCE), a global engineering contractor, that a WeChat-based interface to IFS Applications™  has been created to provide users with a convenient and mobile friendly way to access information within its ERP system.

CAMCE has experienced rapid growth and saw an increased need to deliver their enterprise software - IFS Applications – through WeChat’s platform so employees can work in real-time, anywhere, in a flexible and convenient manner. It will allow employees to pursue timely projects, better contract management and increase process approvals. WeChat, also called Weixin in China, is one of the most popular mobile messaging platforms in the world with over 700m users, and supports different mobile systems such as IOS and Android. The IFS project team in China developed a customized interface for IFS Applications based on the WeChat platform to enable CAMCE employees to access IFS Applications functionality with the same security level and user experience, thereby enhancing mobile access for employees globally.

”We are very excited about the cooperation with IFS. WeChat is used throughout China so being able to provide business information that resides in IFS Applications in a way that suits empoloyees is meaningful in terms of usability and productivity. The WeChat interface makes it easy to access and input information into IFS Application anytime and anywhere, on any device, which enables quick response to project needs, and improves decision-making and approvals,” General Manager of Engineering Administration of CAMCE, Mr. Pan said. ”In addition, we can use WeChat to access IFS Applications without installing additional 3rd party apps or enablers which improves our speed-to-market and reduces costs.”

General Manager of IFS in China, Raymond Lam said,” CAMCE is a highly valued and long standing customer of IFS. This project will enable CAMCE’s employees to operate in an agile and flexible manner increasing operational efficiencies. I am convinced that this will open the door to helping more clients recognize further efficiencies in their investment of IFS Applications.”
