Meets our needs with many features we still need to integrate
Vorteile: Solid product that does what we need it to do. There are many features such as RMA module, customer portal, etc. that we have not yet integrated into our business the we will be implementing in the coming year. Nice to know we are working with a company that is ahead of where we are.
Nachteile: Not Thrilled with the way this system handles drop ship parts (we are a distribution company so about 50% of the parts we use/ship are drop shipped from a vendor. We were able to wok around this with business rules, but are looking to move to the next version that we believe handles this better.

User, support and administrator for 3 years as end user customer
Kommentare: Upgraded from old ERP software to give better financial and manufacturing reporting
Vorteile: simple interface and ease of navigation. error messages are fairly intuitive and after only a few months of usage can be self rectified without the need of on site consultants
Nachteile: Some administrative tasks can be a bit clunky. Initial setups have to be correct as some changes are not changeable

IFS software covers all aspects of field service and it's highly configurable. Implementation and support services could be improved.
Vorteile: Rich functionality - it covers all aspects of field service, including route optimization, dispatch, inventory, order management, pricing, etc. In addition, it's highly configurable (business rules/sync rules) and very flexible to integrate with other applications.
Nachteile: We had many struggles adjusting it for performance, shortage of knowledgeable consultants, support can be improved, documentation is lacking.

used for several years, found to be very usfull and packed with features
Vorteile: the ability to link PPM`s with PO`s so spare part orders are automatically ordered before a PPM is due
Nachteile: at times a little too complex , a large amount of features are good but at times confusing. If IFS could be simplified it would be one of the best around

Functional and configurable software
Vorteile: Easy to program. Configurable options that are approachable for SQL and XML writers. User creation, roles and rights assignment are a breeze.
Nachteile: Difficult to train for older users. Difficult to isolate/trace bugs. Upgrade process is not well documented and does not often go smoothly.

Training is Necessary but Figured It Out Fast
Vorteile: I really like how everything is connected within this software so usually if I have a problem with it, I can figure it out quickly.
Nachteile: A definite learning curve with this software. Expect to ask a lot of questions at first.

Vorteile: You can customize the functions inside IFS to where you feel like you are creating your own software.
Nachteile: It's bothersome to open it sometime since you cannot pin it to task bar.

So much functionality
Vorteile: All of the functionality that we need in one company. There was no need to bolt on modules from third parties that may or may not function properly throughout the system.
Nachteile: Implementation was a little rocky but I think that this depends greatly on the implementation team. Luckily our PM was awesome.

Best ERP System that I have used.
Vorteile: All information can be found in one place instead of playing around in multiple screens. You can setup searches,shortcuts too to make your life easier.
Nachteile: The ability to customize it further would be great!

Concise, supportive and efficient
Kommentare: It does everything that we have been trying to do over the past few years for the contact centre customer services team. Our customers are being looked after so much better than before as agents are able to have full visibility of their details, history, etc.
Vorteile: Efficient use of data organisation and seeing the customer view all in one screen is so much easier. Also handy that we can choose what we need through their modular approach.
Nachteile: A little long to implement but well worth it once all in place. Overall a good experience as we went with them after having issues with our original choice. Should have just bitten the bullet and spent that much ore for bespoke.

We are happy with FSM except for not being able to scan inv numbers
Vorteile: Dispatching our plumbers and merging with Quickbooks
Nachteile: We have spoken with several reps from Corrigo requsting to be able to scan inventory bar codes from the field instead of our having to plumbers enter each item sold by hand. This would make our system complete. Please make note of our needs.

IFS FSM in the Machine Tool WOrld
Vorteile: FSM is highly adaptable. The software allows us to modify the software ourselves where other software require their staff to make changes with a cost to us. We have been able to adapt the software to meet our business needs.
Nachteile: The dropship solution provided out of the box does not match our business model. We have been able to over come this hurdle with a small amount of custom code provided by IFS.

Solid product for field service management
Kommentare: The Sales and Management team at IFS are committed to making each install successful. They are very willing to work to get customers where they need to be.
Vorteile: Can handle any maintenance, repair or support scenario; Flexible; Highly configurable; User interface is intuitive; Data import/export feature very easy
Business rule creation is not intuitive
Customer Portal lack a significant amount of functionality needed
Warehouse portal requires a lot of work to tune for efficiency. It is not useful out of the box.

Vorteile: Easy to use layout, tracks technicians on a map, works well with Quick Books.
Nachteile: Doesn't sync sometimes, design looks outdated.

Kommentare: Too early to say as we are new to IFS. Time will tell. Once we are fully implemented we can give a better review of FSM field service management.
Vorteile: Product rich, lots of flexibility and configurations. A full suite capability is a major draw. Capability to connect to IFS ERP.
Nachteile: Documentation is somewhat lacking. IFS staffing seems to be running thin on people and while they are great people they seem overworked and spread too thin.

Very satisfied with FSM
Vorteile: The FSM product is very adaptable and configurable (through Business Rules & Custom Screens), which has allowed our company to take on new tasks and provide new service offerings, with minimum implementation time. This has served us well in the past, and I feel we haven't even scratched the surface yet. IFS has been wonderful to work with, great partnership and assistance where we need it.
Nachteile: The designed method to accomplish certain tasks does not always meet our immediate requirement or desired efficiency. We have been able to overcome this through custom screens and user defined fields, in combination with the business rules. Sometimes you have to get creative.

Vorteile: Superbly elaborate and granular. It will eventually do everything we need to achieve and more and all within one solution
Nachteile: Functionality and data schema may require modification to meet your business need which will complicate implementation and lengthen cycle
