Enterprise software specialist IFS on the hunt for partners in growth push – Software

Enterprise software vendor IFS has ramped up its efforts to recruit channel partners in Australia as the company looks to scale up its business in the country.

Sweden-headquartered IFS is a vendor of enterprise software for customers that manufacture and distribute goods, maintain assets, and manage service-focused operations. Some of its offerings include an ERP, enterprise asset management and service management software.

IFS ANZ managing director Warren Zietsman told CRN the company made investments to help scale up the business locally and help power intelligent and autonomous enterprises in Australia.

“A robust and vibrant ecosystem is critical to the success of any software vendor, and as such, the growth of our partner ecosystem here in Australia is one of our biggest goals right now,” he said.

“We want to have a strong network of SI partners and Channel partners who are experts in their respective fields. Our singular focus has always been and always will be to design and build solutions that create value for our customers.”

Zietsman added that prospective partners can expect IFS to be a vendor partner that can keep pace and support their businesses.

IFS categorises its partners into three groups – system integrators, channel partners and implementation partners.

System integrators would be those that specialise in change management, business improvement management and integration work.

Channel partners meanwhile buy IFS software on behalf of a customer, but IFS generally won’t add extra resources.

Implementation partners are those that would assist IFS in direct deals involving larger and more complex customer projects.

The company is also targeting five core industries in Australia, with “ambitious growth targets” for manufacturing, aerospace and defence, service management, engineering, construction and infrastructure, and energy, utilities and resources.

“Over the past two years, IFS has intensified its focus on developing and expanding its

Enterprise Software Expert Reimagines Oracle+NetSuite Guides As A Mystery Novel

The Vester Group Founder Releases “The Big Commitment” with ForbesBooks

This release is posted on behalf of ForbesBooks (operated by Advantage Media Group under license.)

NEW YORK (September 29, 2020) — Joel Patterson, Founder of The Vested Group, today announced the publication of The Big Commitment: Solving the Mysteries of Your ERP Implementation. The book is published with ForbesBooks, the exclusive business book publishing imprint of Forbes.

Joel Patterson’s The Big Commitment is a layman-friendly explanation of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. He believes that a business has much to gain from services like Oracle+NetSuite, but the process of maximizing value from the licensing, implementation, and support can be difficult. In order to make ERP more accessible, Patterson chose the unorthodox approach of framing Oracle+NetSuite through a mystery novel.

“I wanted to come up with a final product that carried our message and conveyed the necessary information,” Patterson explained. “That said, I wanted to present these lessons in a way that busy people wouldn’t see as a chore, but rather a treat.”

The Big Commitment shows how utilizing these systems can offer businesses an integrated and upgraded view of their core processes. With a hardboiled mystery serving as the lens, Patterson demonstrates how Oracle+NetSuite enables businesses to collect, store, manage, and analyze data from many business activities. Readers will improve their Oracle+NetSuite skillsets and arm themselves with the knowledge to maximize performance across a wide array of metrics.

The Big Commitment: Solving the Mysteries of Your ERP Implementation is available on Amazon today.
