IFS Applications deployed for finance, HR, supply chain, project and document management
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has announced that the aerospace and defence technology company Calidus, based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, has selected IFS Applications™ as its core solution to manage key company operations and manufacturing projects.
The IFS solution includes finance, HR, supply chain, project and document management modules to support the development of all major Calidus projects, including the manufacturing of the new B-250 Light Attack aircraft which is currently being unveiled at the Dubai Airshow, November 12 to 16.
Following its rapid company and project growth in the last two years, Calidus recognised the need for a solution which could scale alongside and meet the requirements of the fast-moving company.
IFS Applications will allow Calidus to automate key end-to-end processes to increase productivity, reduce costs, and provide management with a 360 degree view of operations to make better business decisions. The industry-specific and agile nature of IFS Applications removes the need for customisation and a long implementation timeline.
One of the recent successful Calidus projects supported by the IFS solution, the B-250 Light Attack aircraft, is being launched during the Dubai Airshow which runs until November 16 (stand A34 and A35).
Calidus managment selected IFS because of its recognised industry leadership in enterprise software as well as its strong track record with other defence manufacturers. As Calidus is a fast growing technology and development company, it was essential for Calidus to partner with a software provider that could adapt at the same rate as the business. The flexibility and scalability of IFS Applications will scale alongside the agressive Calidus growth strategy.
Luis Ortega, Managing Director, Middle East, Africa and South Asia at IFS, added: “The selection of IFS to support such a fast moving company demonstrates the agility of IFS Applications. With such quick expansion, it is essential for Calidus to have a 360 degree view of its operational processes to make informed, data-driven business decisions. Aerospace and defence manufacturing and maintenance is a rapidly growing industry in the Middle East, and Calidus joins a growing number of customers in the region which recognise the industry expertise of IFS.”
