HIMA announces investment in IFS' ERP solution

July 12, 2016 - HIMA required an integrated IT solution that effectively supported the Group’s worldwide processes spanning multiple locations and branches. HIMA, a specialist in functional safety applications, opted for IFS Applications 9 software after evaluating various ERP system vendors. IFS Applications 9 will be used at HIMA as a central ERP system to unify the enterprise’s complex global business processes. The order placed with international ERP provider IFS includes licenses and services with a total value of about EUR 3.1 million.

“We were looking for a global solution with deep functionality for all of our branches, and IFS Applications 9 meets that need. Among other things, we are impressed by the intuitive user interface and high flexibility of the software,” said Stefan Hintenlang, Vice President Operations at HIMA.

The new central ERP solution from IFS replaces numerous stand-alone systems. By providing integrated support for critical business processes, the software will increase efficiency and productivity. After completion of the rollout, the ERP solution will map HIMA’s entire value creation chain, from production planning and control through logistics to maintenance, financial management and HR, as well as service management and quality management.
