Jan. 8, 2024
IFS Cloud's ERP, MRO solution to enable Kongsberg company to increase automation driving efficiency and build long-term asset resilience and reliability.

IFS says the use of IFS Cloud will enable Kongsberg Aviation Maintenance Services (KAMS) to improve turnaround time (TAT) and reduce costs, helping to facilitate business expansion and new customer acquisition.

The comprehensive functionality of IFS Cloud will also help KAMS optimize processes for enhanced productivity, allowing it to improve resource allocation, sourcing, planning, maintenance execution, and financial reporting. Additionally, the implementation will enable the defense supplier to automate its order-to-cash process, encompassing customer quoting, planning, maintenance execution and invoicing, and thereby removing operational silos and manual labor.

Andre Jægtvik, Acting President at KAMS, said "We look forward to partner with IFS utilizing their technology in the years to come. Our industry is rapidly changing with the introduction of new technology, and we must change with it."

KAMS is set to deploy a comprehensive suite of IFS Cloud modules including functionality for maintenance, repair and operations (MRO), supply chain, projects, procurement, finance, CRM, and health safety and environment (HSE).

Once fully deployed, IFS Cloud will cater to the needs of 500 users at four sites across Norway. IFS alliance partner, CGI, will help deliver the implementation.

Ann-Kristin Sander, Managing Director Nordics, IFS, said: "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with KAMS. They are not only key suppliers to the Norwegian Air Force, but they are also playing a vital role in growing NATO's production defense capacity. At a time when the wider aerospace and defense market is undergoing rapid growth, IFS Cloud will be helping KAMS to produce more flight hours with effective operations at a reduced cost, which will in turn increase the Air Force's availability for NATO."
