IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announced that Marbach has decided to implement IFS Applications 9.

Marbach will introduce IFS’s software throughout its worldwide operations in order to increase group-wide transparency. This will give all involved departments a holistic view of production orders, including previews, in order to optimize CAD processing and production planning. Through centralization and standardization, Marbach will have a clearer record of its customers’ order history, specifications and requirements.

IFS Applications will replace numerous stand-alone systems that Marbach had implemented over the years, which will improve ease-of-use for end-users and also simplify IT support requirements. The IFS solution will harmonize and standardize the processes at the individual Marbach sites and shorten process times through higher automation.

“We have tested numerous well-known suppliers of business software and their solutions as part of our rigorous selection process,” says Frank Müthing, CIO at Karl Marbach GmbH & Co. KG. “IFS stood out for its modern solution and its very compelling user experience. The team at IFS were very professional and have deep industry expertise.

“With Marbach, we have gained one of the most renowned companies in the tool engineering industry in Germany as a new customer,” says Peter Höhne, Vice President Sales & Marketing IFS Europe Central. “This sector is one of IFS‘s key target markets which we heavily invest in so we are confident that the solution will quickly demonstrate value to Marbach.”
