IFS and Servi Group agreement to boost operational efficiency through enhanced user experience


London, UK, February 1, 2022IFS, the global cloud enterprise software company, today announced that Servi Group, Norway’s largest producer of hydraulic equipment, has advanced their long-standing relationship with IFS. Since 2001, IFS has supported their full ERP processes - now the company has moved to IFS Cloud™ to boost their operational efficiency.


With roots dating back to 1912, Servi Group is Norway’s leading supplier of Power and Motion Control. Today, Servi Group consists of eight locations in Norway covering production, sales and service operations. Servi Group provides machines and hydraulics to the aquaculture, marine and offshore industry as well as defense and mainland industries. They are a major supplier of pneumatic, vacuum, electromechanical, slide bearing and testing equipment for the road and construction sector, and of windscreen wipers for the marine and offshore sector.


Servi Group has been using IFS to support sales, manufacturing, procurement, finance, document management, quality assurance and service management and is now moving to IFS Cloud to add the latest functionality to their IFS portfolio. The company is particularly excited about IFS’s unified user experience that will empower all of Servi Group’s 310 employees, as well as its forward-looking adoption of technology, such as business process automation for driving digitization initiatives. Being able to access IFS Cloud on any device, anywhere, will also hugely benefit Servi Group’s sales and service personnel.


In the past, Servi Group has made extensive use of IFS Lobbies, which received much praise from business users as it provided each employee with the information most important for their role. Servi Group has now extended the success of the IFS Lobby concept by adding the integrated business intelligence IFS offers. The company is expected to go live with IFS Cloud mid-2022. The implementation will be supported by IFS partner Addovation, who have a long-standing relationship with Servi Group.


“We are expecting considerable benefits with IFS Cloud. Not only will our employees be able to work more efficiently, but we may also be able to reduce the number of other systems, improve integration to other systems through RESTful APIs – so we have access to all information on one common platform,” says Øyvind Hurrød, VP Digitalization at Servi Group. “IFS is providing us with the ability to deliver on the Moment of Service™ to our customers, as we have all the historic data in the system, so we can quickly respond to all customer demands.”


Glenn Arnesen, President, IFS Northern and Central Europe, added, “Servi Group is a longtime partner of IFS and we are happy that they trust in us to continue to be their preferred technology partner. IFS Cloud was designed to offer manufacturing enterprises with complex businesses an uncomplicated way to become data-driven, improve decision-making, and, ultimately, deliver better Moments of Service™ to their customers. We look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with Servi Group as we implement a future-proof solution for sustainable and efficient manufacturing.”
