IFS has just recently announced the acquisition of Metrix—a service management and mobility expert.
In different roles and positions within IFS, I have been actively selling, marketing and outlining product directions for the IFS Service Management solution for about 15 years, so for me personally, it’s a great day today to welcome Metrix, both employees and customers, to the IFS family.
With joint forces, I am 100% sure we will achieve greater results, delivering more and smarter product and service innovations to the service industry.
IFS has a clear strategy to become the number one vendor within field service management and mobility. In 2010, IFS acquired 360 Scheduling, market leading resource optimization software which added cutting edge functionality and competence to IFS.
Now, IFS takes another leap forward by acquiring Metrix. With Metrix’s portfolio of mobile solutions for field service management on smartphones and tablets, IFS can now boast one of the world’s broadest solutions for the mobile workforce, including;
- Metrix’s off-line mobile smartphone apps for field service and maintenance.
- IFS Touch Apps, a family of cloud-based apps to take IFS Applications with you
while you’re on the move.
- IFS Enterprise Explorer, a tablet-friendly interface.
- IFS 360 Scheduling, a real-time field service optimization engine.
IFS can now also offer our customers the full range of deployment opportunities such as On-Premise, On-Demand, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), or Software + Service.
Through organic growth and through acquisitions, IFS can offer our service customers new product innovations at a faster pace to help them improve their competitive edge. By working close to our customers, we outstrip rival software when it comes to ease of use.
