IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has signed an agreement with Deloitte, making the professional services firm its strategic partner for the deployment of IFS Applications™ in the offshore, oil & gas and maritime industry in the Benelux.
Through the agreement, IFS is expanding its partner network, thereby acquiring greater commercial reach and additional implementation resources that will allow the company to meet the increase in expected demand for IFS Applications in the sector.
By partnering with IFS, Deloitte will be able to extend its portfolio with an ERP solution that is recognized for its performance, functionality and flexibility. Deloitte offers the right expertise and experience with sector-specific business processes and an in-depth understanding of the way business objectives are supported. The fully trained Deloitte IFS Specialists will offer customers thorough knowledge of the business and technological mastery.
“Through this partnership, Deloitte will provide all services that may be required by clients related to business and systems consulting, including consulting services for the implementation of IFS Applications,” said Eric Vennix, Partner at Deloitte Consulting in the Netherlands.
IFS has ambitious growth goals which can be accomplished by adopting and exploiting the latest technologies to enhance IFS’ product offering, create new market demand, and leverage the presence of Deloitte.
“With the success of these objectives both IFS and Deloitte will enjoy revenue growth and a greater market penetration, while continuing to establish a competitive edge in the marketplace,” says Marco Verdonschot, Managing Director of IFS Benelux.
“We are pleased to extend the IFS Partner Network, which is an important part of our global growth strategy,” IFS VP Global Alliances David Eager said.
