IFS provides the Ginger Group with an integrated ERP system

IFS provides the Ginger Group with an integrated ERP system

IFS solution will replace 20 legacy systems to harmonize mission-critical business processes across Ginger’s 28 subsidiaries and 2,000 staff

Paris, July 23, 2020 IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that leading French engineering company Ginger Group has selected IFS Applications™ as its central enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Ginger has chosen to deploy IFS Applications™ ERP solution across all Group entities, to consolidate its business processes and increase efficiency. The solution will be implemented by Capgemini, a world leader in consulting, digital transformation, technology services and engineering, and a long-time IFS partner.

Operating throughout France and internationally, Ginger specialises in soil, water, building materials and environmental engineering. They also offer expertise to those involved in construction, planning, and sustainable development, through their numerous technical studies.

Faced with a disparity between the management methods and tools used by different entities, Ginger embarked on a phase of analysis and competitive dialogue with key market solutions including; Sage, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle and others. Following this consultation, Ginger chose IFS Applications to accelerate its digital transformation, based on IFS's native capabilities and flexibility, combined with Capgemini's industry knowledge as a solution integrator. 

IFS’ solution will place business management at the core of Ginger Group's information system, by providing teams in the field with the data they need, reliably and instantaneously. The digitalization and standardization of the CRM, Finance, Purchasing and Time Management processes within IFS Applications will allow the management team to accurately monitor the company's activities and projects within the 28 subsidiaries of the Group

"This transformation is a giant step forward in assisting our development and will contribute to the acceleration of our growth. The implementation of the IFS and Capgemini solution will allow us to standardize our management, to better secure our data and to reinforce our internal culture by homogenizing our practices. We are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with IFS and Capgemini and we are convinced that the future ERP solution will be able to adapt to our organization and our businesses with efficiency and flexibility." Philippe Margarit, CEO of Ginger.

Christophe Ceze, IFS Managing Director, France and Benelux, added, “We are thrilled to welcome a highly regarded brand such as Ginger Group to the IFS community. Over the decades, our work with some of the world’s leading engineering companies has left IFS uniquely positioned to deliver business value to organizations in this complex, project-centric sector. Together with our trusted partner Capgemini, we look forward to helping Ginger accelerate its digital transformation journey and unlock its untapped potential.”
