Yorktel Selects IFS Applications ERP Solution

Itasca, Ill. - Yorktel, an Eatontown, New Jersey-based pioneer and innovator in the audio, video and web collaboration industry, has selected IFS Applications for its enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

Yorktel offers total managed conferencing services, consulting, integration and operational services, professional video production and postproduction for visual communication solutions such as videoconferencing, streaming media, video on demand, custom media studio and room design and multimedia network management.

After the conclusion of a thorough ERP selection process, Yorktel chose IFS Applications and will implement IFS Business Performance, IFS Financials, IFS Distribution, IFS Manufacturing, IFS Engineering/Product Design, IFS Maintenance, IFS Sales and Support, and IFS Human Resources.

"IFS' project-based solution stood out for its ability to adapt to our changing business needs and market changes, right out of the box," Yorktel Chief Executive Officer Ron Gaboury said. "We have experienced tremendous business growth over the past few years and we found our current business system wasn't agile enough to support such growth. So our number one priority is the migration of our current system to a next generation ERP solution like IFS Applications to support the future growth of Yorktel."

Yorktel also is looking forward to gaining increased visibility into its projects with IFS Applications. Gaboury believes the solution will help Yorktel react faster to customer demands, communicate more complete real-time data regarding customer projects in process and schedule its resources more efficiently.
