"We were looking for an enterprise software package that would enable us to better manage complex, multiyear ETO projects, and after evaluating several leading vendors, we found that IFS offers the strongest solution on the market," said Joel Madison, chief executive officer of Ebara International. "IFS Applications will allow us to more efficiently track product specifications and documentation, which individually can be thousands of pages long. We'll also be able to streamline the quotation process -- which typically takes about a year -- while converting more quotations to wins."
"At IFS, we've been developing applications for complex engineered products for over 20 years," said Cindy Jaudon, president and CEO of IFS North America. "We provide the experience and the industry-specific tools to help engineer-to-order machinery manufacturers become leaner, more agile, and better equipped to deliver their products on budget, on time, every time."
