IBS Business Suite 2014 Untangles Supply Chain Complexities for Mid-Tier, Distribution-Intensive Companies

Integrated Best-of-Breed Solution Creates Efficiencies Between Supply Chain Operations to Drive Revenue Growth and Improve Productivity

SOLNA, Sweden, September 30, 2013International Business Systems (IBS), a global leading integrated ERP and supply chain provider, today announced IBS Business Suite 2014, an integrated and synchronized set of software solutions designed specifically to help mid-tier, distribution-intensive companies improve their end-to-end supply chain operations.

Each component of IBS Business Suite 2014 was originally developed as a stand-alone solution for a specific aspect of the supply chain, such as Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP), Warehouse Management (WM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP). Those individual components have now been integrated into a suite that provides a single view of all distribution operations, simplifying the complexities involved in moving product efficiently through the supply chain to help organizations drive revenue, improve productivity, and exceed their customers’ expectations. The full suite includes IBS Enterprise, IBS Dynaman, IBS Bookmaster and IBS Sales & Operations Planning.

“IBS Business Suite 2014 fuels growth for mid-tier companies with complex distribution operations, especially those in the Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, Automotive Aftermarket, 3PL and Wholesale Distribution industries,” said Mike Verdeyen, IBS CTO. “It gives business leaders insights to make informed decisions proactively, rather than reacting to issues or market changes, along with the flexibility to differentiate their organizations in competitive markets and the agility to extend communication across customers and business partners. The result is a platform for growth with a lower total cost of ownership than building each solution individually.”

Among the key benefits of IBS Business Suite 2014 are:

      • Accelerating productivity and reducing cost through standard interfaces and interactions for common business practices
      • Reducing capital expenditures and mitigating risks by adding new capabilities to solutions already owned and used today
      • Maximizing return on investment with a global network of proven domain and industry experts

“Mid-tier organizations are looking for the depth and functionality across enterprise resource planning and supply chain execution so they can position themselves for strategic growth,” said IBS Chief Executive Officer Doug Braun. “The ability to maximize applications and processes that companies, partners and suppliers already use cannot be understated. IBS’ new product suite seeks to resolve that key issue for organizations.”

IBS applications are designed to provide benefits such as lower IT cost through fixed monthly fees, reduced business risk, faster time to value and greater flexibility combined with the advanced functionality of the IBS industry-leading ERP and Supply Chain solutions. IBS Business Suite 2014 will debut in Booth No. 418 at Supply Chain Exchange, CSCMP’s Annual Global Conference 2013, on October 20-23 in Denver.
