IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has announced that Skanska, one of the UK’s leading contractors, will implement IFS Applications 9 into the Infrastructure Services division of its UK operations.
Skanska is involved in some of the UK’s most prestigious construction and infrastructure projects, in both the private and public sectors. IFS Applications 9 will provide Skanska with an advanced system to manage its infrastructure contracts by encompassing work order planning, scheduling and execution, as well as purchasing, inventory, time and attendance, and mobile work orders in one centralized system. Once implemented, Skanska will be able to improve the quality and response time to its clients.
IFS UK Managing Director Paul Massey said: “It’s great to be working with such a well-established name in the UK’s construction industry. Our work with Skanska demonstrates our strength in helping construction firms effectively manage work orders and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
IFS Applications 9 was selected as not only does it meet Skanska’s current needs, but it is agile enough to adapt to changing requirements, laying the foundations for a long-term strategic relationship. The project will begin immediately and is scheduled to go live in the second quarter of 2016, with subsequent roll outs planned to follow.
