To broaden product offering to clients in the South African mining and construction sector, IFS has partnered with Ovations, a company that offers a suite of cloud-based products focused on smart management solutions that include enterprise asset management, asset performance management and field service management.

According to Sean Katzen, CEO of the Ovations Group: “Cloud adoption is a way for business to become more efficient in these times where the majority of business processes have gone digital.”

Ovations has core domain expertise in process automation, content services, data and analytics as well as financial crime and risk prevention solutions. “We provide guidance to our customers through an entire life cycle of the cloud adoption process, including initiatives to mitigate strategic workloads to the cloud deployment models,” concludes Katzen.

“Digitisation has given businesses the tools to become more efficient, more targeted and more successful,” says Emma Murray, Managing Director of IFS, Africa. “Having the competitive advantage of being dynamic during very uncertain and difficult times is invaluable. IFS provides the digital platform for uninterrupted, real-time transactions and analytics into the business operations. This allows companies to support business processes, to transform existing supply chains into digital supply chains, or create new business models where an outcome is delivered instead of just products – servitisation of the business. All with real, quantifiable business benefits and returns.”

IFS market vision and leadership is well established by multiple independent industry analysts, including leader for SaaS and Cloud-Enabled Large Enterprise ERP Applications and a leader for SaaS and Cloud-Enabled EAM Applications by IDC Corporation; a visionary by Gartner for Enterprise Asset Management Software and also a visionary for Cloud ERP for Product-Centric Enterprises; it was also recently named leader in the Gartner 2020 Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management for the fifth year in a row, which is a testament to its long-term product investment strategy and singular customer focus.
