Roxtec upgrades to IFS Cloud to drive efficiencies and reduce costs

ERP solution will enable Swedish sealing solutions specialist to remain evergreen and add new functionality as and when required

IFS, the global cloud enterprise software company, recently announced that Roxtec International, a Swedish modular pipe and cable sealing systems company, has chosen to upgrade its existing IFS enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to the latest IFS Cloud™ solution to drive its ongoing global growth.

Roxtec already uses IFS software to support its daily operations end-to-end, enabling it to benefit from full global visibility over its operations and easy localisation for its multiple subsidiaries. Implementing the upgrade to IFS Cloud will allow the sealing systems company to build on this capability with an evergreen ERP model that allows it to access all the latest functionality, as required, to further increase efficiency, reduce costs, and ensure it is always compliant with local market regulations.

Roxtec will also benefit from a new business process automation capability that will drive enhanced productivity across its operations and increase data utilization through integrated analytics and business intelligence. In addition, it plans to make use of the software’s “Build Place” capability to customize the software and conduct impact tests.

The IFS Cloud software will also help Roxtec tackle a range of specific operational challenges it currently has. It will enable enhanced electronic data interchanges to drive more efficient procurement processes as well as improve parts handling for Engineer to Order (ETO) and Configure to Order (CTO) processes. IFS Cloud will also reduce the need for costly and cumbersome custom reports, integrations, and modifications (CRIM).

The upgrade will initially see IFS Cloud rolled out across 25 countries, with a further expansion to follow further down the line.

Rikard Hasselgren, CIO, Roxtec, said: “We have worked with IFS for many years now and have built a strong, trust-based relationship with them over that time. We are confident that using IFS Cloud will enable us to enhance this further, allowing us to keep a lid on costs and increase operational reliability, security, redundancy, and scalability across all our daily operations end-to-end – from manufacturing to customer orders to invoicing and finance.”

Ann Kristin Sander, Managing Director Nordics, IFS, said: “Across all of its core target markets from critical infrastructure to manufacturing to the renewable energy industry, Roxtec is experiencing strong and steady demand.

Using IFS Cloud will ensure that it is able to consistently meet this demand today and easily scale to accommodate future growth plans. We are thrilled to be continuing to work in close partnership with them to assist them in meeting their long-term strategic goals.”
