Global enterprise software firm IFS has offered consultants an opportunity to put the spare time in their diaries under lock-down to good use. The company is offering a free-of-charge training programme to consultants, enabling them to become certified on IFS solutions, with the potential to collaborate on customer projects upon completion.

Many businesses purchase enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to manage various business processes within the organisation – including accounting, human resources and purchasing – in one integrated system. If implemented well, such systems have various analytical features, such as performance evaluation, reporting and decision making, which allow for business flexibility and efficiency gains. Realising the benefit of such systems is easier said than done, however, and often firms will need to turn to the expertise of consultants for help with implementing them.

IFS is a global enterprise applications company, which develops and delivers enterprise software for customers around the world who manufacture and distribute goods, build and maintain assets, and manage service-focused operations. As the coronavirus lock-down continues into May, the company has announced it will be providing free training to help qualified consultants begin using IFS systems.

The new initiative is aimed at helping experienced ERP, IT and software consultants to use the unoccupied time in their diaries to get trained on IFS systems. Aimed at consultants with three to five years of experience in the industry the programme includes access to free learning and virtual classroom training, with the goal of certification in the subject area of expertise. Once trained, consultants will have the option to become certified on IFS products and, ultimately, have the opportunity to work with IFS and official partners on customer projects.

Michael Ouissi, Chief Customer Officer at IFS, commented, “Over the last month, we’ve challenged all 4,000 IFS employees to take action by bringing new ideas and new solutions for both our customers and others in our ecosystem to help weather this pandemic. There is tremendous opportunity out there – even in times like today. There will be many experienced ERP or FSM implementation pros who find themselves with some level of spare capacity and are eager to spread their wings. I hope they’ll take up the opportunity to join our new training. Together, we can grow and help write the next success chapter in the IFS book.”
