A Swedish subsidiary of Dole Food Company, Inc. to implement IFS solution for production and distribution within the FMCG area

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Dole subsidiary Dole Fresh Cuts has chosen IFS Applications™ 9 to replace its legacy business systems. The overall goal is to optimize its supply chain and workflows.

Following a competitive evaluation process, Dole Fresh Cuts has chosen IFS Applications 9 to streamline its procurement, order and inventory handling, forecasting and production planning, distribution and financial support for invoicing. The end-to-end solution delivered by IFS will also, in later stages, include product development and quality management.

“Our goal was to implement a single, standard ERP solution that could replace our portfolio of legacy business systems,” Stefan Grahn, MD Dole Fresh Cuts, said. “IFS Applications 9 stood out as the solution best positioned to help us achieve the goal of unifying our operations while enabling more efficient workflows and enhanced user productivity. We also look forward to deploying additional IFS capabilities as the dynamics and needs of our operations evolve.”

IFS Scandinavia CEO Glenn Arnesen added, “We are happy to announce this major customer win in this highly dynamic, competitive, and consumer-centric industry, which is a strategically important market segment for IFS. The agreement with Dole Fresh Cuts is further proof that our industry solution continues to resonate very well among leading retail and wholesale businesses.”
