One of the many benefits on IFS, is the Customer 360, where you are able to view outstanding orders, credit, invoiced orders, address and contact information, and other helpful information, all in one place!
The function to search can be a bit laborious, for example you cannot type the letter "A" and a list of things begiining with "A" appear. Instead, you have to use percentage signs and actually abe a bit more specific with your search.
If your business is an FMCG, or involves warehousing or logistics, and any manufacturing, then IFS is a very suitable ERP system.
A benefit has been our requests for quotations to suppliers of freight services, we solved a business problem of manually sending out requests for quotations, and manually making ourchase orders, to implementing quote requests on IFS, and the great thing is, is that for quotes that are accepted, you can very quickly convert the quote into an order, which saves extra time filling in repeat information, on a day to day basis.
