Port of Dover integrates business processes using IFS Applications

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that the Port of Dover, operating Europe’s busiest international roll-on roll-off ferry port, is to implement IFS Applications™

  • Over 300 staff to use IFS Applications for Asset and Estate Management, Program and Project Management, Finance, and HR
  • Mobile solution key for access to Work Order Asset Management and Service Management systems

The Port of Dover handles around 13 million passengers, 2.6 million tourist vehicles, and 2.2 million freight vehicles per year. To further improve efficiency and performance visibility, the Port has been looking for a business system that offers tightly integrated support across functions. IFS Applications will replace a number of existing solutions and integrate information across its business areas.

When fully implemented, IFS Applications will be used by over 300 employees throughout the organization to help improve efficiency and control in key areas such as asset management. The solution includes functionality for asset and estate management, program and project management, finance, and HR. The ability for mobile workers to effectively access work order asset management and service management systems when on the move is also a key deliverable.  

“We are very happy to announce this strategically important customer win,” IFS Europe West managing director Paul Massey said. “The Port of Dover is the busiest port for passenger and ro-ro freight traffic in the UK and we are convinced that IFS Applications is the perfect choice to provide business transparency, control, and improved efficiency.”
