Jun. 8, 2017 – IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has announced that Airmar Technology Corp. has selected IFS Applications as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) system of record.
A developer and manufacturer of Sonar transducers for fishfinders and instruments, Airmar has expanded its portfolio to deliver high-tech net monitoring and catch control, current profilers, weather stations and ultrasonic sensors to a range of customers.
Airmar will implement IFS Applications to see varous benefits, including enhanced forecasting and scheduling, traceability and management of supplier part quality and enterprise asset management (EAM) capabilities to manage the maintenance of production equipment, explains IFS, adding that the new system will enhance post-sale service capabilities to Airmar customers by enabling efficient delivery of field service as well as return-and-repair services. IFS Applications will also support the ability to provide service contracts to Airmar customers.
