Successful IFS Upgrade at Odfjell Technology & Odfjell Drilling
Odfjell Technology and Odfjell Drilling, the Norwegian Oil Drilling, Well Services, Operations and Engineering companies with 3800 employees, went live with an upgraded version of IFS Applications in January. Addovation, which has a long-standing relationship with Odfjell, functioned as the technical upgrade partner in the project.
Supporting future growth
Odfjell continually invests in the latest and best technological solutions to ensure quality in everything they do. The ERP system and partners are no exception.
“One of the core goals of the IFS 10 upgrade project was to get into a more standardized solution – so we would prepare ourselves for the future cloud solution with an evergreen philosophy. With Addovation’s technical expertise and understanding, we found standard IFS solutions that supported our processes. Addovation’s contribution in all aspects of the project, solution design, data migration, cutover and go-live where important contributions for the success for the project deliverables.“ Kjetil Laasby, CIO – Odfjell Technology”
Addovation was responsible for migrating data between the old and new version. In addition, they were responsible for developing the required modifications, integrations, and reports (CRIMs) to the standard solution.
“I’m happy that the go-live went smoothly and that we met Odfjell’s expectations,” says Øystein Meiningen, Project Manager at Addovation. “It’s been fun and challenging to work alongside Odfjell and IFS, who was responsible for the Solution. I feel confident that Odfjell now has a solid and modern ERP solution that will support their business in the years to come.
In addition to the migration and CRIMs, Addovation has also been responsible for hosting and managing the technical environments in the project.
