IFS fuels growth for Ortec Group

IFS has announced that the Ortec Group, a full-service provider and integrator of high added-value construction and engineering solutions, has selected IFS Cloud to support its growth and provide its employees with a quality user experience. 

Structured around four divisions—engineering, global services, contracting France and international contracting—Ortec supports its industrial clients throughout the life cycle of their projects. Its clients operate in a wide range of sectors, from energy to chemicals and pharmaceuticals, from aeronautics to food processing, including industry and local authorities. 

To optimise the operation of its 229 agencies and the activity of its 11,500 employees, the Ortec Group chose IFS to obtain an end-to-end solution capable of handling many of its structuring processes, such as financial planning and budget management, accounting, project control and management monitoring, and purchasing. 

IFS Cloud will introduce full visibility into key areas, such as asset investment budgeting, risk assessment, materials management, maintenance contract management, project execution and quality assurance. 

André Einaudi, chairman and CEO of the Ortec Group, said: “Ortec continues to expand its business, both in France and internationally. One of our challenges is to best meet the functional needs of each of our subsidiaries – which operate in very diverse markets and modalities – with a single, centralised management solution. We chose IFS Cloud for its powerful ERP capabilities, with the goals of gaining efficiencies, improving decision making and providing a premium user experience for our teams.” 

Marc Genevois, president of IFS Southern and Western Europe, added: “Remaining productive and profitable is becoming increasingly challenging in the global engineering, construction and infrastructure sector. Enterprise software has an important role to play to mitigate downturns and disruptions, which is why technology investment should be top of mind of any CIO in this sector. Working with leading lights, such as Ortec, is how we are able to design enterprise software that helps companies manoeuvre during challenging times and scale rapidly during upturns. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial collaboration with Ortec.”
