IFS announced on Thursday that the Royal Norwegian Navy has decided to extend its use of IFS Applications by purchasing additional user licenses.
The Norwegian Armed Forces uses IFS Applications for military logistics to manage mission-critical processes like 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 Navys 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 defense logistics and asset management are mission-critical as they underpin the efforts of all military personnel whether they are deployed overseas or working domestically", Grose added.
