NOTE AB selects IFS Cloud to propel global expansion


ERP and EAM solutions will enable contract manufacturer to optimize processes and achieve a competitive edge


London, UK, December 12, 2023 – IFS, the global cloud enterprise software company, today announced that NOTE AB,  one of the leading contract manufacturers in northern Europe, has selected IFS Cloud in a strategic move to streamline and automate business processes, deliver enhanced visibility over its operations, and continue to drive growth.   



The implementation of IFS Cloud will see NOTE replace  several legacy systems with a single unified ERP and EAM platform, capable of supporting the company's current growth trajectory, both organically and through acquisitions. The modern cloud solution will enable NOTE to foster innovation and deliver greater customer value, while, at the same time, allowing it to enhance IT security, efficiency and leverage economies of scale.



Added to this, IFS Cloud will help create a reliable IT platform for intercompany trading, sourcing, planning, and maintenance operations while also delivering the scalability and processing power needed to support the company's acquisition strategy and drive competitive differentiation.



Johannes Lind-Widestam, CEO, NOTE AB, said: “We are expanding rapidly, undergoing digital transformation and seeing strong growth. We knew we needed a partner that understood our core markets and could support us as we continue to expand our operations, hire more employees and acquire other businesses. At the same time, we were looking for a single system capable of managing and supporting the fast rate of change. We believe IFS and IFS Cloud to be the perfect combination.”     



NOTE is set to deploy a comprehensive suite of IFS Cloud modules, including functionality for manufacturing, finance, projects; procurement; supply chain management, enterprise asset management (EAM), CRM, and human capital management (HCM). The ambitious deployment will cater to 1,200 users across 11 sites in 5 countries, with the implementation project that will be delivered by Regional System Integrator Addovation set to commence in early November 2023.


Ann-Kristin Sander, Managing Director, IFS Nordics said: “NOTE AB is one of the fastest-growing companies in the contract manufacturing sector, which in itself is a growing market in Europe. Despite the challenging economic landscape, they are acutely aware of the importance of adopting a proactive approach to accelerate their growth and drive competitive advantage.” Sander continued: “At IFS, everything stems from our industry focus, and we have a proven track record of delivering value to contract manufacturers. We are looking forward to supporting NOTE AB and helping to ensure their continued success.”
