IFS powers India’s largest defence manufacturer

IFS has signed a contract with technology provider, Tech Mahindra, to enable a $54million business transformation project for Indian defence manufacturer, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

‘Project Parivartan’ will involve large-scale implementation of technology enhancements to establish new work processes. In collaboration with Tech Mahindra, IFS will roll out a comprehensive ERP solution to 9,500 users working at multiple divisions across India. The solution will replace a number of disparate business systems in HAL with a central, consolidated platform that will allow staff easy access to accurate data.

Mr. R Madhavan, CMD at HAL, said: “In order to meet the challenges of evolving business scenarios and to ensure sustaining competitiveness and customer focus, HAL has initiated ‘Project Parivartan.’ As a leading digital transformation company, Tech Mahindra will implement the new platform from IFS and help HAL meet the dynamic needs of this hyper-digitalised world using ERP. This will further enhance mission-critical processes such as MRO and will facilitate HAL in ushering in a new era of centralised operations based on industry best practices.”

Michael Ouissi, chief customer officer at IFS, added: “The need for HAL to manage and orchestrate the many intricate elements of its operation cannot be underrated from an effectiveness, financial and service perspective. We are honoured to continue our relationship with HAL as they work with our trusted partner Tech Mahindra to implement the latest IFS solution as part of ‘Project Parivartan’. Our platform is engineered to help international, multi-site companies in heavily regulated industries, such as aerospace and defence, digitalise and positively transform their value chains.”
