IFS proves value beyond competitors to win Indonesia’s largest industrial gas distribution network
PT Aneka Gas Industri (AGI) to implement a holistic and fully integrated IFS Applications solution
London, January 14, 2020 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that PT Aneka Gas Industri, the first industrial gas company in Indonesia, has selected IFS Applications™ to replace its current ERP infrastructure in an effort to support new business models and deliver real-time visibility into its operations.
In looking at its existing infrastructure, AGI realized it needed to modernize in order to keep up with the pace of change in its industry. The company needed a business system that was flexible, scalable and configurable.
AGI will be implementing an IFS Application suite that encompasses:
- Document management
- 3rd party software integration
- Business intelligence
- Financial consolidation
Imelda Harsono, Director of Technology & Compliance at AGI, commented, “With IFS’s technological layer, we will be able to connect to the outer world and gain visibility into our business transactions happening in real time. The ERP selection process took six months longer than expected as we needed to verify business requirements and integration fit for each finalist. After evaluating solutions offered by more than 10 ERP vendors, we decided that IFS truly met our current challenges with a solution that covered our entire gamut of manufacturing and distribution, and is flexible enough to support anticipated future expansion. With IFS, we are confident about achieving our goal of becoming Industry 4.0-ready within 18 months.”
The new opportunity was sold in by IFS distribution partner Pt. IFS Solusi Integrasi, who has supported IFS in establishing a strong value offering in the region with superior product knowledge and expertise on IFS capabilities.
Wesley Kowalski, IFS Vice President ASEAN, believes this is a notable milestone for IFS in the region. “We are proud to show the markets how our solutions can rival even the best known of our competitors. Our application suite responds quickly to market changes and uses resources in a more agile way to achieve better business performance and competitive advantage."
