IFS #2 in Complex Asset MRO Software

ITASCA, ILL. - IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has been identified as the number two vendor in market share in enterprise asset management (EAM) software for complex asset maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO) by ARC Advisory Group, the leading information technology research and advisory firm for industry and infrastructure.

In its new publication "Enterprise Asset Management and Field Service Management, Market Analysis and Forecast through 2017," ARC Advisory Group recognizes IFS as the number two vendor of EAM for complex MRO.

"Complex MRO is a demanding subset of EAM software," ARC Research Director for Enterprise Software Ralph Rio said. "In essence, it encompasses traditional maintenance and supporting functionality along with project management and logistics. The aerospace and defense industry is highly regulated with mission critical assets spread over a wide geography."

"IFS is also recognized by ARC Advisory Group as holding number one market share positions in aerospace and defense and oil and gas," IFS Americas President and CEO Cindy Jaudon said. "And this strong market position in complex asset MRO is one reason for those two vertical industry rankings. We are perhaps the only vendor in the market to offer all three types of MRO software; complex MRO, component MRO and heavy MRO used for very large assets like jet aircraft and naval vessels."
