TAE selects IFS Applications 9 for integrated ERP

IFS said that TAE, Australasia´s number one provider of turbine engine maintenance, repair and overhaul services, is implementing IFS Applicationsâ„¢ 9 to integrate the TAE group of companies under a single enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution after a management buy-out from Air New Zealand earlier this year.

TAE had previously purchased IFS Applications as an engineering management solution to comply with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). It had a different ERP system at its Brisbane facility and another ERP system and financial package in Adelaide. Replacing them with IFS Applications will improve business visibility with real-time reporting to support growth and reduce costs.

“The functionality was key–IFS is in our market and knew what we needed at a maintenance level,” said Andrew Sanderson, CEO of TAE. “We spoke with other users–some of them are our customers–and IFS had the reliability and the credibility we were looking for. IFS also has a competency and proven performance in implementation that derisked the process in what is a very tight time frame to manage.”

Complete visibility across its operations will quickly benefit TAE with the IFS Lobby, a configurable and role-based dashboard environment facilitating real-time business reporting.

Supporting a single set of accounts, IFS Applications will lower TAE´s financial reporting costs. It will also reduce the effort and delays involved in manually combining information sources using Excel spreadsheets.

IFS is a globally recognized leader in developing and delivering enterprise software for enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise service management (ESM).
