IFS ERP

What do you like best?

We moved from version apps 7.5 to version apps 9, from Oracle 11g back end to 12g. Interface in apps 9 is much more appealing to the eye and easier to navigate. Lobby's is new new addition which allows for having multi screens on one page, dashboards for high level viewing of projects and activities statuses.

What do you dislike?

Current support in South Africa is still troublesome, the migration from apps 7.5 to apps 9was not a smooth transition by the local support team. There were numerous database refreshed and application refreshes due to bugs and poor project planning. But through all of this we have persevered and the system is running with lower manageable level of issue, in which required more senior level admins to assist.

Recommendations to others considering the product

IFS is a good ERP SYSTEM for project based companies (EPC), Support in SA is fairly limited and could use an improvement, use of the product is not high noticeable in SA as apposed to SAP, Sage..etc But the App9 has really been a major step up and in the right direction. Through all the pains, excited to see how this product evolves.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Apps 7.5 was an outdated version in which support and development had lapsed. Moving to the new system allowed for a more user friendly GUI appealing interface and up to date support for the product. A refreshing change for our users and allowed us to transition with minimal customization.

ERP very well done

What do you like best?

The system can be manipulated to make life much easier, which is a huge plus for me. WE have multiple countries that provide information so consolidating all that into an easy to use system is great.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve for this system was a bit longer for me, personally. Although it was my first time using this type of system I would've hoped it'd be easier to get started.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to learn the system thoroughly before moving on

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing multiple entities from many different countries is difficult but this system allows everyone to use the same system fairly easily.

What ERP Systems solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Buggy but is getting better

What do you like best?

It opens? Time entry works but can be error prone at times. Expenses are fairly easy to add to time. Its not intuitive but you can set a shortcut for consistent time entry.

What do you dislike?

Seeing your overall time entry can be a pain as you have to go week by week. I have to right click and add details to enter invoice comments? Why not use the blank space at the bottom.

Short codes are in no way short. Overall the transition to ifs may be good for a sales team but not for the time entry at least for what I use it.

It only updates portions as you click them, so after the initial app update there are a million more on the way to time entry.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It will get better as it has been since go live but I feel like some easy functions are too buried and cumbersome for standard users.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Supposed to be unifying our sales and engineering time entry with the ability to see invoices and sales slips together. And to see overall sales and financials. We also ise it for resource planning of sales and engineering forces.

IFS Implemented for 2 years

What do you like best?

One of the many benefits on IFS, is the Customer 360, where you are able to view outstanding orders, credit, invoiced orders, address and contact information, and other helpful information, all in one place!

What do you dislike?

The function to search can be a bit laborious, for example you cannot type the letter "A" and a list of things begiining with "A" appear. Instead, you have to use percentage signs and actually abe a bit more specific with your search.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your business is an FMCG, or involves warehousing or logistics, and any manufacturing, then IFS is a very suitable ERP system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A benefit has been our requests for quotations to suppliers of freight services, we solved a business problem of manually sending out requests for quotations, and manually making ourchase orders, to implementing quote requests on IFS, and the great thing is, is that for quotes that are accepted, you can very quickly convert the quote into an order, which saves extra time filling in repeat information, on a day to day basis.

Not amazing, but not too bad

What do you like best?

I like that you can use the keyboard shortcuts to search, fill in fields and save etc. This enables me to limit the amount I use my mouse

What do you dislike?

The large searches mean that they can be slow to return data and require a certain way of searching to enable a better result.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is hard work to get it right. Ensure you spend a lot of time testing and setting up the correct processes

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The areas of the business were working in silos, they now are working closer together. Estimating for tenders has become more accurate, allowing us to save money and win more tenders

Efficient but quirky

What do you like best?

The simplicity of importing standard forms for everyday use; the centralization of all the departments to one system; the ease of organizing

What do you dislike?

the process that goes into modifying a form. In order to modify a form, there must be journals entered. Recommendations of modification must be listed and explanations. The process doesn't happen overnight and can get frustrating.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Patience

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

financial reporting, sales, accounts payable; centralization and ease of one system
