Dubai Airshow: Calidus selects IFS for core solutions

Posted 14 November 2017 · Add Comment

IFS announced today that aerospace and defence technology company Calidus, based in Abu Dhabi, UAE, has selected IFS Applications as its core solution to manage key company operations and manufacturing projects.



The IFS solution includes Finance, HR, Supply Chain, Project and Document Management modules to support the development of all major Calidus projects, including the manufacturing of the new B-250 light attack aircraft which is currently being unveiled at the Dubai Airshow, November 12th-16th.

Following its rapid business and project growth in the last two years, Calidus recognised the need for a solution which could scale alongside and meet the requirements of the fast-moving company. IFS Applications will allow Calidus to automate key end-to-end processes to increase productivity, reduce costs, and provide management with a 360-degree view of operations to make better business decisions. The industry-specific and agile nature of IFS Applications removes the need for customisation and a long implementation timeline.

Calidus management selected IFS because of its recognised industry leadership in enterprise software as well as its strong track record with other defence manufacturers. As a fast-growing technology and development company, it was essential for Calidus to partner with a software provider that could adapt at the same rate as the business. The flexibility and agility of IFS Applications will scale alongside the aggressive Calidus growth strategy.

Luis Ortega, Managing Director, Middle East, Africa & South Asia at IFS added: “The selection of IFS to support such a fast-moving company demonstrates the agility of IFS Applications. With such quick expansion, it is essential for Calidus to have a 360-degree view of its operational processes to make informed, data-driven business decisions. Aerospace and defence manufacturing and maintenance is a rapidly growing industry in the Middle East, and Calidus joins a growing number of customers in the region which recognise the industry expertise of IFS.”
