ROL and long-term ERP partner Addovation successfully upgrade to the latest version of IFS Applications
ERP plays a vital part in ROL’s business strategy. To support and further strengthen the fully automated factory concept, an ERP enhancement program was initiated – starting with an upgrade of IFS Applications. At ROL, IFS Applications supports four production facilities in Lithuania, USA, China & Sweden, as well as handling the sales processes around the globe for 400 users.
The upgrade project started in September 2020 and went live February this year. Stefan Brengdahl, ERP Manager at ROL, is satisfied with the implementation.
“An upgrade project is a challenge in our highly automated and integrated factory/ supply chain setup where IFS Applications plays a central role. We had a very tight and committed project team from Addovation that helped us to analyse, recommend and prepare for required changes based on the new version.
The Project went live as planned on February 1st and we now feel that we have the right platform for our continued work to further expand the usage of IFS Applications in the organization.”
ROLs Industry 4.0 solution includes the Addovation’s Integration & Server component (AIS), the integration to the ABB Robots, the Toyota AGV fork lifts and the Unifaun TA-system.
Addovation Sales Director, Jens-Magnus Andersson says “We are very happy to be collaborating with ROL and support their digital transformation journey and Industry 4.0 program. The solution is a great example of how machine & ERP business software integrations can benefit manufacturers!”
ROL and Addovation have already started the next phase of the ERP enhancement program to strengthen the automated factory even further.
