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.

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.

Boston Book Festival hosts scavenger hunt, story walks during October programming

In addition to its string of livestreamed events, the 2020 Boston Book Festival is hosting several outdoor activities in October for in-person visitors.

The festival’s annual Book Hunt Oct. 1 and 2 offers the chance to search for free books, authored by festival presenters, hidden around Boston and other towns. Follow the organization on Twitter and Instagram (@bostonbookfest) for clues to the hidden treasures’ whereabouts. This year, the festival has involved a wider range of towns in its adventure. That means bibliophiles can also follow these institutions for clues: Walden Woods Project (@TheWaldenWoods), Louisa May Alcott’s Orchard House (@LouisaMayAlcott), the Emily Dickinson Museum (@DickinsonMuseum); the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art (@carlemuseum); Herman Melville’s Arrowhead (@Arrowhead1850), Edith Wharton’s The Mount (@TheMountLenox), and the Harriet Beecher Stowe Center in Connecticut (@HBStoweCenter).

Via the festival’s Story Walks project, families can pick up a map at Frugal Bookstore in Roxbury to see which of the neighborhood’s stores have displayed pages of Kwame Alexander’s Caldecott Medal-winning children’s book, “The Undefeated.” Or they can go to Downtown Crossing to peruse the pages of Oge Mora’s “Saturday,” displayed in storefronts. Additional activities, including a giveaway from J.P. Licks, will be stationed along each route. Both walks will be up and running for the length of the festival. Maps will also be available at bostonbookfest.org/story-walks/.

While in Downtown Crossing, stop by the window at 27 School St. to read 10 memorable submissions to the festival’s At Home Community Writing project. Each mini essay captures a slice of life, however ordinary, during the pandemic from local residents.
