Reports of slow response time with IFS installed on client servers/PCs.
They describe their modules as “solutions,” but you can’t purchase them as separate products.
Industry focus is mostly on the manufacturing space/construction space.
IFS Applications is a truly complete ERP system, offering modules in every conceivable business process for a company. Their extensive feature set covers everything from financial management to supply chain to human resources. There are generally no reports of dissatisfaction with the IFS ERP system, though some users have complained of slow response times with IFS Applications installed on their systems.
Though IFS Applications effectively covers all the necessary business processes for construction, manufacturing, distribution, and similar industries, it doesn’t seem to accommodate industries such as retail, eCommerce, etc. As such, there are no retail/eCommerce features within the IFS modules. Additionally, their “solutions” are actually modules within the system, and so cannot be purchased outside their ERP system. That’s a question of semantics, however, and not necessarily a downside depending on how you look at it.
Overall, IFS Applications is a comprehensive, agile ERP software solution that’s perfectly suited for the manufacturing, construction, and high tech industries.
