IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Byggmax has chosen to upgrade to IFS Applications™ 9 and extend its solution with capabilities supporting key business processes such as purchasing, finance, warehousing, supply chain, and e-commerce.

Byggmax is a leading retailer of do-it-yourself products and building materials in the Nordics with some 130 stores located in Sweden, Norway, and Finland as well as rapidly growing online sales. The company, which has been using IFS Applications since 2006, has decided to upgrade and extend its IFS solution to support its ambitious growth strategy.

In order to increase effectiveness and flexibility, Byggmax will be leveraging some of the new features of IFS Applications 9, including the layered application architecture, the role-based IFS Lobby interface, and the notification solution IFS Streams. Byggmax has selected IFS components for financials, distribution, supply chain, and retail.

“By upgrading to IFS Applications 9, we will have a more flexible solution in place to support our growth,” Pernilla Walfridsson, CFO at Byggmax said. “A highly effective IT system enhancing our supply chain and retail operations will enable us to continue to offer a wide range of products at competitive prices both in our stores and online.
