I worked at IFS North America full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

IFS has a great ERP product. It has been consistently grown and developed, and is capable of standing up to anyone else's ERP solution.

Cons

While IFS has a great product, IFS North America has never been able to really capitalize on it. The marketing and brand awareness in the US is sadly lacking, and US management is too focused on time reporting and other minutia to give the product the marketing focus it needs.

Advice to Management

Focus on brand awareness. Be more aggressive in marketing. During slow times, use US resources to develop simple add-ons that please the customers.

    Slow sales and growth in US

    Advice to Management

    Address differences in the product necessary to compete in the US. What works in Europe might not work here.
