We announced that we have entered into a strategic business alliance agreement with WAP. Through this partnership, by combining WAP’s business functions that comply with Japanese business practices with IFS’s advanced functions, we will be able to provide new options for solving problems for customers who have issues with their core systems.

*New possibilities of 2-tier ERP and composable ERP*
IFS and WAP have announced the signing of a strategic business partnership agreement, with the aim of contributing to improving the investment and operational efficiency of customers’ core systems in the Japanese major enterprise market. Focusing on the new trends in ERP, “two-tier ERP” and “composable ERP,” we are flexibly configuring systems with high-level standard functions to meet the business needs of different countries and regions. We propose the realization of “add-on removal”.

IFS has 27 years of experience in the Japanese market and has been introduced globally by over 6,000 companies, and has earned a high reputation for production management both in Japan and globally. On the other hand, WAP’s ERP “HUE” for major companies boasts over 6,700 standard functions and a high compliance rate for business
requirements (97%* or higher), and has established a solid position in the market for major Japanese companies. .

This partnership aims to achieve “complete standardization” and “no add-ons” and will focus on providing best practices that are optimized to the culture and needs of the countries and regions where they are introduced. In particular, the aim is to solve the problems of customers who have problems with the characteristics of foreign-made ERP that do not match Japanese business practices. We will promote the construction of ERP.
