AECOM strengthens supply chain management for federal and commercial clients by leveraging IFS technology
AECOM, a premier, fully-integrated global infrastructure firm, announced today a partnership with IFS, a global enterprise applications company, to modernize and transform its supply chain management capability using IFS Applications™. IFS Applications is an integrated application suite for critical business processes such as supply chain management, predictive maintenance and digital transformation.
AECOM’s Management Services group will utilize these tools to expand its portfolio of offerings, improve efficiencies, eliminate manual processes and provide exceptional value to its customers, including the U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Energy, NASA and commercial clients. Enabling the company’s procurement and supply chain professionals with IFS’s technologies will drive even greater agility, flexibility and responsiveness to clients’ ever-changing mission priorities.
“Through the implementation of dynamic supply-chain technology, AECOM will help our clients achieve performance excellence and maximize their opportunities,” said John Vollmer, AECOM’s president of its Management Services group. “Our clients will realize increased value and savings through robust automation, significantly improved response times, reductions in inventory levels and planned on-time deliveries. We are excited about this partnership with IFS – a force multiplier for AECOM and our continued growth in the federal sector.”
“IFS has a proven history of being able to help organizations like AECOM meet the requirements of federal government clients in settings ranging from procurement, asset management and maintenance, repair and overhaul, through complex government contracting vehicles,” said Kevin Deal, vice president of Aviation and Defense for IFS. “We are excited about the opportunity to help AECOM automate and streamline numerous front and back office processes, enabling the company to tighten the procurement cycle, regardless of whether inventory is received at an AECOM warehouse, a customer location or a construction site. We look forward to standing up a supply chain management system that AECOM can leverage to enable growth in the market.”
