How to select a project and asset centric business system
Selecting business software for engineering and construction companies is extremely challenging in large part because most enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions originated in the world of repetitive manufacturing and are therefore a poor fit for a project- and asset-centric business.

Enterprise Resource Planning For Project Management
With IFS, engineer-to-order manufacturing, construction and engineering enterprises have an Enterprise resource Planning (ERP) solution for project management-related environments. The solution is built around one-off projects like engineering construction and fabrication, prototyping and services.
Project-based parameters control and determine schedules for all functions, including engineering, procurement, document delivery, installation and construction, coordinated by an efficient information flow among the different disciplines involved.
With a project-driven solution—where the project itself is the engine—high-level visibility and transparency are ensured throughout your enterprise. Everyone benefits from one common plan, ensuring projects deliver on time and budget.
From Computerized Maintenance Management To Asset Lifecycle Management
Enterprise asset management (EAM) needs to be more than a glorified computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). It needs to accommodate asset lifecycle management (ALM). And that is what IFS delivers. IFS got its start as an EAM vendor, so all of the functionality that comprises IFS, including document management, risk management, finance, inventory, contract management and more can be part of your EAM environment in IFS. Implement simple work orders and maintenance inventory, or a full suite of functionality designed to support cradle-to-grave ALM for asset intensive-companies.
Full Service Lifecycle Management
IFS is a full-service lifecycle management solution for every service provider. Whether you are providing service in the field, in a plant, at a customer’s home or office, in a depot environment, on linear or other capital assets, or anywhere else, IFS has a solution for you.
