Enterprise Consulting has been contracted to lead the IFS implementation at North American Network (NAN) by providing expertise in Manufacturing, Inventory and Purchasing as well as Project Management. The implementation has been split into three separate stages or Rollouts (with four companies going live at the end of each stage). The first two rollouts have been completed and the third is nearing their Go-Live. Enterprise Consulting’s role was to help the NAN companies in the second and third rollouts with pre-implementation assistance to prepare them for their Implementation/Go-Live process.
North American Network is an information system management organization formed to support and maintain information systems for their constituent, independent companies (12 in all). In 2013 North American Network (NAN) was tasked with implementing IFS Apps8 across their 12 core client companies.
Enterprise Consulting provided the NAN companies with an introduction to the IFS system and a walkthrough of key artifacts from the initial Pilot phase of the program. This walkthrough included detailed end user Work Instructions, detailed Process Flows for all common areas of the business and IFS Basic Data established during the common design phase of the project. This effort gave the NAN companies a head start on their implementation efforts, shortening the overall length of the IFS Implementation and setting them up for a successful Go-Live.
