Order to cash processes and scenario are implemented natively in IFS. An HR module exists for career management also (objectives, comportments, training, mobility) but may be improved in terms of workflow validation (e.g. training to validate by a manager) or reporting.

Microsoft Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations (Dynamics AX)

Microsoft Dynamics AX is well suited for medium to smaller branch offices or operations where SAP products are not suitable due to lack of resources. It interfaces well with SAP for data configuration to have seamless transactions with our main ERP and BI teams, yet still allow smaller branch and satellite offices to do their job. For larger facilities (500 or more employees) we find Microsoft Dynamics AX to be limiting in features and robust role assignments as well as granular workflow to cover the entire operations in manufacturing and refining.

Pros

IFS Applications

  • Interfaces of IFS are very powerful and varied, making it easier to integrate the tool in your Information System. Based on standard connectors like IFS connect, you can potentially exploit formatted mail flows to avoid or reduce manual work and automate your processes (e.g. auto creation of sales contracts based on a quote), with security mechanisms inside the tool to check consistency and formatting of data before storing it in your database. Other interfaces use standard PL/SQL packages and allow you, based on web services for example, to interact with an external CRM such as Salesforce, with standard PL/SQL API packages to call web services.
  • Reporting is easy with IFS and can be done in many ways : it can be either use the embedded Excel export feature. Secondly you can make use of Business Analytics feature to build complex states and feed dedicated views nightly in order not to impact your production environment while compiling and executing complex SQL statements. Thirdly, your users can make use of quick reports with a set of built-in tools, which are easy to use and learn, with no IT specialist needed, in order to be operational in an effective manner.
  • IFS is based on your organization matrix to efficiently ensure the correct access to the tool, which can be done via menus etc. You can easily adapt or fine tune permissions to work at high level or on very detailed level, and control rights access management depending on your organization matrix role.

  • Pricing: Microsoft Dynamics AX gives us good flexibility in how we price our products.
  • UX: Microsoft Dynamics AX has a good user interface to put valuable information on the screen for users.
  • Inventory Management: Microsoft Dynamics AX does a great job at giving us insight into our inventory.

Cons

IFS Applications

  • The speed of bug fixes should be improved by the IFS after sales teams. We saw the difference of responsiveness prior to Go Live and after Go Live, with a change of teams. IFS France is working on that point, and strategically wants to innovate by acting now with two other third-party companies in early 2017, to improve the after sales experience for customers.
  • There is no license model between the full licenses, which gives access to all IFS features, and the light licenses, to get access to a specific module like expense sheet. As a consequence, you must acquire a full access license for one team working only with a dedicated module (e.g. general ledger). Maybe an intermediate type license would be welcome to balance the budget. IFS tries to make prices competitive but you have to consider full upgrades of the product too, where requiring full licenses can be hard on the budget.
  • When you have an Active Directory ecosystem with a trust relationship, users from domain B can't natively access IFS, even if AD sync is in place with domain A. It's important to improve that functionality because many companies have a merge and acquisition context, with SOX constraints sometimes, and avoiding maintaining contacts or local accounts simplifies SOX compliance, or to management of accounts within the company.

  • MRP can be slow to adapt to changes in actual production or supply chain transactions.
  • Setting up number sequences seems a trivial matter, but these numbers ID transactions once they are in the ledger and are key--easy to miss this point in the implementation process.
  • Bank rec being easily automated and able to quickly plug into a bank back end to get data is not the best.
  • Payment processing can be 'clunky' based on checks, ACH, Wires...as some of these items are not triggered out of the box in AX, bur are easily added --talking ACH and Wires specifically.

Microsoft did a reasonably good job supporting the deployment efforts to multiple factories and ongoing stabilization. I don't think that MES was intended for the large enterprise volume and complexity levels our operations required.

Some rough spots, but ultimately worked out. The contract didn't appear to be structured to support the level of overlapping facility deployments required to meet timeline commitments. Merging cultures on the program was also challenging. Overall, not an easy implementation by any stretch. Everyone did the best they could.

Alternatives Considered

IFS Applications

Microsoft AX, QAD (in continuation of our previous ERP), Sage X3 was an out of the box ERP that was part of initial RFP. We have chosen IFS based on the compromise between costs & budget, functionality, technical features, and feedback from similar customers that gave their feedback.The project manager team and qualification level of technical or consultant teams were differentiating factors too. Finally IFS application was named in the Gartner’s mid-market ERP Magic Quadrant, along with SAP, and helped us to finalize our choice

Microsoft Dynamics AX is more user friendly compared to our old ERP system.With the growth of the company, the old way to generate from the old ERP system is too slow and not competent enough.We need to get the data as fast as possible.We need to get the consolidated data in an easier way.That is why we switched to Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Return on Investment

IFS Applications

  • Reporting is now centralized and managed. Previously, reports were outside the information systems and there was a risk of incoherence.
  • Accounting controls are now in place on the overall processes, including production, which helped the company to reduce closing periods or to produce more easily official mandatory accounting files yearly.
  • Interfaces between the CRM forecast tool and IFS helped to keep the tools in sync, and to decrease the processing times prior to production launch.

  • Automated art approvals - We were able to save the company thousands of dollars a year by eliminating an employee to send art approvals out. Not only eliminate an employee but are now able to send thousands more emails at a time.
  • With AX our agents are able to see exactly where an order is in the building. Our process flow is extremely strong with AX on our side.
