Successful Go live with IFS Cloud at Finnish customer Prevex
Prevex, a leading supplier of water traps from Finland, went live with IFS Cloud™ in November. Addovation was selected as the preferred long-term ERP partner and was responsible for the upgrade.
Greater control with evergreen solutions
One of the major benefits of IFS Cloud is that upgrades happen automatically two times a year. With Evergreen, Prevex can always be on the latest software version without disruptions with full-scale upgrades. It gives them greater visibility, predictability, control, and flexibility in planning their business development and adopting new capabilities from IFS. “We are truly excited about this go live”, says Niclas Öster, CIO at Prevex. “With IFS Cloud, we now have a solid ERP solution that supports our business processes and future growth. With the capability of evergreen, we do not have to deal with the disruptions of time-consuming upgrades! At the same time, it enables us to adopt new technology and functionality without delay.”
A competent ERP Partner saves time
Prevex selected Addovation because of their competence. Not only was Addovation in charge of the upgrade, but they also deliver hosting and managed services to the water trap producer.
“We do not have to spend much time thinking about managing the ERP platform. With Addovation as our long-term ERP partner, we rely on their help to administer and surveil the application. We now focus on our business processes and how we can stay on top of the competition,” Niclas Öster continues.
Modern cloud integrations with Boomi
Boomi offers a Integration Platform as a Service (iPaas) designed and developed for application and data integration in a single, scalable, cloud-based solution. The platform is based on a single instance with multi-tenant architecture. It has a distributed and scalable architecture, and it supports both cloud- and hybrid integration solutions. With Boomi, the time to market for building integration solutions has been greatly reduced. Prevex now has an integration platform that will be a key cornerstone for their business success stories.
A long-term perspective
A long-term perspective is essential when dealing with ERP. You need a strategy and a clear vision of the solution. Next up for Prevex will be implementing the HCM and Quality Assurance module.
“It’s been great working on this upgrade project for Prevex” says Jonas Axelsson Blad, Project Manager at Addovation. “This was our first customer in the Finnish market and our first IFS Cloud upgrade, so it’s very giving to see how much value the solutions generate. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Prevex and starting phase two of the project.”
