Norwegian Armed Forces extends its use of IFS Applications

IFS solution rolled out to additional Navy personnel, now supporting 2,500 users in the armed forces with mission-critical configuration management, MRO, and logistics

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that the Royal Norwegian Navy has decided to extend its use of IFS Applications™ by purchasing additional user licenses. 

Since 1999 the Norwegian Armed Forces (Air Force, Army, and Navy including the Coast Guard) have been using IFS Applications for military logistics to manage mission-critical processes such as configuration management, including document and spare parts management, maintenance, repair, overhaul (MRO), and supply chain. 

The Navy’s recent decision to purchase additional users means that the IFS industry solution will empower more personnel working deployed on one of its vessels or on land. The solution is distributed between vessels and onshore sites, also offering integration with the government finance and HR system. Complying with the Navy’s operational requirement for six months operation in autonomous mode, the IFS solution can process work as usual and replicate the data to the master database when deployed in theatre as well as when returning from duty.

"IFS Applications is the only solution that lives up to the stringent operational requirements of the Armed Forces in general and the Navy in particular," IFS A&D industry director Graham Grose said. "Efficient defence logistics and asset management are mission-critical as they underpin the efforts of all military personnel whether they are deployed overseas or working domestically."

"We are very proud of the continuing trust that the Royal Norwegian Navy places in our industry solution," IFS Scandinavia CEO Glenn Arnesen said. "By working in close collaboration with the Norwegian Armed Forces, we have been able to incorporate invaluable best practices into our technology, resulting in a unique industry solution that encompasses everything from project management and approval routing, configuration management, document management and archiving, to project delivery and warehousing, purchasing, warranty and change management."
