Major French engineering and construction group chooses IFS to increase the visibility and management of its key activities, projects, and purchases at the Group level and for all its agencies


London, September 7, 2021 – IFS, the global cloud enterprise applications company, announces that Ortec Group, full-service provider and integrator of high added-value construction and engineering solutions, has selected IFS Cloud™ for enterprise resource planning (ERP) to support its growth and provide its employees with an unequalled quality of user experience.


Structured around four divisions—Engineering, Global Services, Contracting France and International Contracting—Ortec supports its industrial clients throughout the life cycle of their projects. Its activities cover more than 50 complementary areas of expertise and its fields of activity include project and works engineering, new construction and revamping, and services to the environment, industry and the service sector. Its clients operate in a wide range of sectors, from energy to chemicals and pharmaceuticals, from aeronautics to food processing, including industry and local authorities. 


To optimize the operation of its 229 agencies and the activity of its 11,500 employees, the Ortec Group chose IFS in order to obtain an end-to-end solution capable of handling many of its structuring processes, such as financial planning and budget management, accounting, project control and management monitoring, and purchasing. 


After a deep evaluation of the vendor market, IFS Cloud was found to provide more powerful support for Ortec Group's multi-site, multi-country operations. IFS Cloud will introduce full visibility into key areas such as asset investment budgeting, risk assessment, materials management, maintenance contract management, project execution and quality assurance. 


"Ortec continues to expand its business, both in France and internationally. We must therefore ensure that our internal processes are flexible and efficient to guarantee complete interoperability between each of our Group entities. This is a major challenge for us," said André Einaudi, Chairman and CEO of the Ortec Group. "One of our challenges is to best meet the functional needs of each of our subsidiaries - which operate in very diverse markets and modalities - with a single, centralized management solution. We chose IFS Cloud for its powerful ERP capabilities, with the goals of gaining efficiencies, improving decision making and providing a premium user experience for our teams."


Marc Genevois, President, IFS Southern & Western Europe, added, “Remaining productive and profitable is becoming increasingly challenging in the global engineering, construction and infrastructure sector. Enterprise software has an important role to play to mitigate downturns and disruptions, which is why technology investment should be top of mind of any CIO in this sector. Working with leading lights such as Ortec is how we are able to design enterprise software that helps companies maneuver during challenging times and scale rapidly during upturns. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial collaboration with Ortec.”
