IFS has extended its document management solution to help customers improve the efficiency of capturing and managing project and enterprise information. Developed in consultation with a number of IFS customers, the extension features improved document navigation and visualization, enhanced document security and control, as well as full integration with all Microsoft Office programs.

The new IFS document management solution has been designed to simplify the process and reduce the administrative burden of controlling the mass of documentation associated with large-scale business projects. By ensuring customer, supplier and contractor documents are retained within a central ERP system, organizations can quickly increase data visibility and improve employee productivity by reducing the time it takes to access the right document for the right workflow at the right time.

PMC Servi, a leading manufacturer of hydraulic systems, is one of the first customers to go live with the IFS document management extension. Torgeir Lindtveit, MA manager at PMC Servi, said, "We deal with a multitude of customers and suppliers on a daily basis. It’s essential that our document management application can both manage the influx of data associated with each project, as well as reduce the time required to access this information. We now have greater documentation visibility across the organization, which means our staff can quickly retrieve the latest, most up-to-date records, and respond more readily when customers and suppliers need them to."
