Catering equipment servicing firm, JLA, has ploughed £1m into a new finance and service contract management system.

The maintenance giant selected IFS Applications 9 for its entire operation.

This should provide JLA with an advanced system to manage its customer contracts by encompassing service contracts, rental and asset management, as well as full financials, purchasing, inventory, and production control in one centralised system.

JLA’s chief information officer, James Greenman, commented: “IFS Applications 9 was selected because it not only meets JLA’s current needs, but it is agile enough to adapt to changing requirements, laying the foundations for a long-term strategic relationship.

“The project will begin immediately and is scheduled to go live in the second quarter of 2017.”

IFS UK MD Paul Massey added: “It’s great to be working with such a customer-focused and growing company.

“Our work with JLA demonstrates our strength in helping service-centric firms effectively manage business and we look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
