Secondly, a consistent user interface – regardless of whether your team are requesting annual leave or completing a high-profile work order – reduces your training overhead and increases the speed at which new tools are adopted. With IFS Cloud you can ensure that your users experience hits these two critical points, allowing you to get projects done quicker and in the most optimal way, which in turn passes these benefits onto your customers.

  1. Meet your sustainability goals

The drive to net-zero in coinciding with the need to manage and reduce operational costs, while maintaining the reliability, safety, and operation of existing assets. As well as this, the need to meet new challengers potentially entering the market, adopting new technologies, and changing consumer demands provides a perfect storm for not meeting your sustainability goals.
