AECOM eyes supply chain transformation with IFS Applications
AECOM has announced a partnership with IFS to modernise and transform its supply chain management capabilities.
IFS Applications is an integrated application suite for critical business processes such as supply chain management, predictive maintenance and digital transformation.
The company said it would use the new technology to improve efficiencies, eliminate manual processes and provide exceptional value to its customers, including the U.S. Department of Defence, U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Energy, NASA and commercial clients.
“Through the implementation of dynamic supply-chain technology, AECOM will help our clients achieve performance excellence and maximize their opportunities,” said John Vollmer, AECOM’s president of its Management Services group.
“Our clients will realise increased value and savings through robust automation, significantly improved response times, reductions in inventory levels and planned on-time deliveries.
Kevin Deal, vice president of Aviation and Defence for IFS, said: “IFS has a proven history of being able to help organisations like AECOM meet the requirements of federal government clients in settings ranging from procurement, asset management and maintenance, repair and overhaul, through complex government contracting vehicles.
“We are excited about the opportunity to help AECOM automate and streamline numerous front and back office processes, enabling the company to tighten the procurement cycle, regardless of whether inventory is received at an AECOM warehouse, a customer location or a construction site.
“We look forward to standing up a supply chain management system that AECOM can leverage to enable growth in the market.”
