IFS has been recognised by ARC Advisory Group in its most recent “Enterprise Asset Management Global Market Research Study”.
According to the report, IFS has gained market share in the aerospace and defense industry in each of the last four years, growing approximately 25 percent since 2012.
“IFS has evolved from a leading European EAM supplier to become a strong enterprise solutions supplier with dedicated vertical industry software components and expertise,” Ralph Rio, Research Director for Enterprise Software, ARC Advisory Group said. "Over the last year, aerospace and defense has seen some major changes with a wave of new technology entering the industry and the next generation of military and civil aviation equipment.”

EAM has become more important than ever in ensuring an organization unlocks the most value from an asset through its life. IFS EAM is agile and flexible enough to be able to track all assets in real-time, ensuring that the best service is achieved, maximizing availability and keeping mission-critical equipment operational and ready for deployment".
