Cross-Functional Components

Cross-Functional Components

Our cross-functional components provide you with a set of powerful tools that streamline, simplify, and handle critical processes found within most industries and businesses. These processes include business intelligence, sustainability management, supply chain management, process modeling, and document, quality and lifecycle management.

Accounting Rules

IFS Accounting Rules™ offers you a common set of rules for all manual and automatic postings within IFS Applications. You get an excellent overview that secures your company’s accounting model. Standardized interfaces make it easy for you to handle transactions sent to and received from IFS Applications and non-IFS business solutions.

Sustainability Management

IFS Sustainability Management™ gives you comprehensive support for all stages of a product’s lifecycle, through the entire supply chain to the use phase and end of life. It leverages existing data, lets you create material declarations and environmental product declarations, and serves as a base for environmental reporting such as GRI. Due to its flexible nature you can use it for all kinds of compliance purposes, e.g. REACh, RoHS or WEEE, as well as eco-label proofing.

Lifecycle Management

IFS Lifecycle Management™ puts you firmly in control of whatever lifecycle you handle, be it asset, product, project, customer, service, or any other crucial business or operational flow. From design to disposal and beyond, all information and feedback are documented in the same system and easily available to anyone authorized to access them—today and well into the future. This means you can learn from the past, reduce errors and continuously improve your business processes.

Document Management

IFS Document Management™ gives you full control over your company’s documentation. It handles the creation and development process for documents and includes easy-to-use search tools. Other functionality includes workflow, templates, version and release management, support for invoice scanning (OCR) and redlining. IFS Document Management can satisfy any of your power users, yet its web-based interface is so user-friendly that new users can be up and running.

Reporting & Analysis

IFS Business Reporting and Analysis™ helps you understand and analyze your business with pre-built analysis models for everything from finance and HR to sales and procurement. The Analysis Models are accessible from Microsoft Excel®, Microsoft PowerBI®, IFS Lobby™ and most popular reporting and analysis tools. IFS Business Reporter is an Excel based business reporting and planning tool. It can be used as a report tool in its own right, or as an integrated part of budgeting and business planning.

Enterprise Operational Intelligence

IFS Enterprise Operational Intelligence™ (IFS EOI™) enables integrated end-to-end performance management. This allows companies to correct and manage broken or complex business processes as well as managing the business as a whole. Predictive and prescriptive analytics enable better and faster decisions to be made at all levels of the business, from operational through to C-level. A key differentiator is our model-centric architecture rather than the more common data-centric architecture.

Quality Management

IFS Quality Management™ provides a fully integrated solution that streamlines and standardizes quality management data across the entire value chain. It covers a wide area of functionality, from quality control, including Control Plans, SPC Charts, and Capability Indices, to quality assurance areas such as FMEA, Quality Audits, Non-Conformance Reporting, MRB and CAPA.

Process Models

IFS Process Models™ provides you with an integrated package of tools, methods, and graphical models for developing and communicating your company’s work procedures, routines, and responsibilities. You can use it to tune and communicate your company processes while implementing IFS Applications. The graphical documents produced become models for your corporate structure and processes.

IoT Business Connector

IFS IoT Business Connector™ de-risks and accelerates your IoT initiatives by helping you transform raw data into actionable insights that are planned and optimized in IFS Applications. IFS IoT Business Connector provides a reference architecture, all the plumbing to get things working, the IoT Discovery Manager to manage insight discovery using Microsoft Azure IoT Suite, and the IoT Controller used to configure the right action to be taking in response to IoT observations.
