IFS Cloud shapes growth for property restoration firm Polygon

Polygon International, the European market leader in property damage restoration, has chosen to upgrade its existing ERP solution to IFS Cloud as it looks to digitalize its operations and scale its technology platform to support its strategic growth plans.

By extending Polygon’s partnership with IFS with the purchase of IFS Cloud, the company hopes to implement the solutions to undergo a business transformation and strengthen its market position through organic growth and targeted acquisition.

Once fully implemented, IFS Cloud will have more than 4,000 users at Polygon, all of which spanning 13 countries across Europe, as well as in the US, Canada, and Singapore, with more expected to follow as the company continues to expand its global reach.

Polygon will take advantage of IFS’s finance module to streamline day-to-day operations and give the company full financial data visibility, access accounting and transaction information in real-time, and eliminate manual errors to improve its financial operations and inform accurate decisions. IFS Cloud’s Field Service Management capability will allow Polygon’s service technicians in the field to access customer data and create service reports directly on-site without having to go back to office.

Elni Kullmer, president Europe North, IFS, said: “Polygon has highly ambitious growth plans but it also has the foresight to know that growing at pace depends on having the right technical platform and infrastructure in place to enable them to scale. That’s what we will provide with IFS Cloud.”

Christian Wächter, chief operating officer, Polygon, said: “We were looking for a solution that can provide us with the right information in real-time to rapidly acquire and integrate new businesses and scale our operation into new countries. But we also need a secure and agile platform to allow us to engage rapidly with customers when they need us in order to mitigate their losses and reduce their costs. IFS Cloud was ideally suited to both roles.”
