Yellowtail has joined the IFS Partner Network. As part of the deal, the Netherlands-headquartered consulting firm will sell and implement IFS EOI in the European and African finance and government sectors.
IFS is a global provider of enterprise software for enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise service management (ESM). The public company, founded in 1983, currently has over 2,800 employees and supports more than 1 million users worldwide.
To support its clients with implementing and managing IFS related products, the software company has – similar to all other major software players – a partner programme in place. Firms that are admitted into the partner programme comply, according to IFS, with the highest standards and can call themselves leading and trusted implementations partners.
The latest firm to join its partner ranks is Yellowtail, a management and IT consultancy with offices in Hilversum, the Netherlands, and Johannesburg, South Africa. The consulting firm has been mandated to sell and implement IFS Enterprise Operational Intelligence (EOI) – the firm’s business intelligence and dashboard solution that supports end-to-end performance management. “IFS EOI offers predictive to prescriptive analytics ranging from strategic visual insight down to influencing operational decisions to enable better and faster decision-making”, explains Yellowtail Partner Robert Harreman. He adds: “The IFS EOI solution offers us superior functionality and all the required flexibility to create in-control dashboards for our clients.”
Yellowtail will also be able to offer tailored EOI dashboards that help businesses remain in control. “Many of the larger governmental institutions, municipalities and financial service providers are struggling with implementing new legislation, while at the same time remaining in control over their organisations and processes. IFS EOI, coupled with our dashboarding solutions, provide a hands-on mechanism for all management layers in a complex organisation structure to do exactly that.”
Peter Scheltus, IFS EOI Strategy and Sales Director, comments, “We are pleased to be working with Yellowtail, whose presence throughout Europe and Africa will help us deliver extended local support to our customers. In addition, a large part of the potential market for our IFS EOI solution lies in financial services and governments, where Yellowtail boasts great expertise.”
