Hi all,

I’m Ged Pierce, IT Manager at Unipart Powertrain Applications in Coventry (UK). We manufacture Fuel Tanks, Fuel Rails and Fuel Fillers for Tier 1 automotive customers such as Jaguar Land Rover.

I took over responsibility for IFS 7 in 2016 and had technical responsibility for our re-implementation of IFS 10 which went live in August 2019, making use of the improved functionality and capabilities of the new version.

I used to hate IFS, but now I love it! :grin:

Hey all!

 

I’m Adam (Taylor), AKA Bert or Big Adam… not sure about why for the last one tbh, but apparently I look a bit like Bert off The Big Bang Theory.  Not sure how I feel about that.

I’m the Data Systems Architect here at UPA and work with Ged (he’s my boss), and I was heavily involved in the implementation of Apps10 with him.  Certainly was a steep learning curve for me as have mainly been a T-SQL/Microsoft house DB guy until now, so to (a) start using an ERP system for the first time, (b) use Oracle in anger for the first time and (c) migrate our systems from a system implemented in 2006 to upgrade go to to 2019 edition, was certainly… challenging!

 

I manage the manufacturing systems and data provisions for the business, which means I’m currently mopping up and tweaking reports, playing with Crystal, creating and adjusting IALs and building custom objects to integrate the systems with our shop floor production equipment, and learning the ...interesting… ways of doing certain things.

 

Looking forward to being an active part of the forum - I certainly have a lot of questions :D

 

Have an awesome day!

Hi,

My name is Tom Greenwood and I work for IFS as a PSO Consultant.

I originally joined 360 Scheduling in 2008 as a support consultant, 360 were later acquired by IFS in 2010. 

I continued working in the support team, gaining a lot of experience with 360 Scheduling (now PSO) as well as Mobile Work Order and more recently FSM, right up to December 2019 when I joined the UK Consultancy team to help out on PSO and PSO/FSM implementations.

I’m located in Grantham, England - not far from Nottingham. Outside of IFS I love spending time with my family, playing Tennis and cycling :)

Hopefully I can help to answer a few of your questions on this forum !

All the best,

Tom

Hello, IFS Community!!

My name is Christy Perdue, a Business Architect with Corning Data.  Prior to last year, I had spent most of my career in the steel industry (operations, supply chain & finance) and by happenstance, have spent nearly 1/3 of my career involved in some level of ERP implementation.  IFS was my 3rd ERP implementation many years ago (prior to 7.5) and by far has been my favorite ERP system to work with.

 

In my spare time, I enjoy raising and showing American Quarter horses in the sport of reining (a link for those that are curious about the sport): 

I also enjoy a collection of other outdoor activities, time with friends and family as well as a never ending list of house/farm projects.

 

Best Regards-

 

Christy

Hi IFS Community,

I am new in IFS since March 2020. I am currently working as a Head of BPM which requires that I understand IFS and get to know my way around in IFS. ERP systems are guiding me in my career since 1998 and I am still excited about them!

I hope to find a lot of useful information and “meet” great people in this community!

Hi all!

 

I joined Syntrium some months ago, the main IFS partner in Belgium at the moment. Before that, I worked in the production and quality management of different chemistry & life sciences related manufacturing companies.

 

I’m exploring some new functionalities, so I’m pretty sure this community will come in handy!

Hi guys, my name is Ryan Smith and I’m currently located in Atlanta, Ga.

Just a little about me, I solely specialize in the recruitment of IFS experts across North America, on a contract and permanent basis. 

The reason I am here is to make connections in the market, as well as gaining a better understanding upcoming changes or trends within IFS.  In Addition, I also want to explore new functionalities within the system in order to better learn the different and extensive ways that others are utilizing their systems functionality. 

Fun Fact: I have my 3rd child on the way, and my first girl. 

Look forward to getting a chance to meet you guys!

Hi folks,

 

I am Siri and I recently joined the Purple Community.

I am a Consultant, I worked 2 years for IFS Switzerland before this year I started to work for the first Swiss IFS Partner:-)

So far I used HR and Finance Modules, but I am also interested crossfunctional topics, in AI, Technology, and more.

I live and work in Switzerland, in Zürich, but I have international customers, so I also travel now and then around the globe.

 

Fun fact: Switzerland is a landlocked country but my favorite sport is surfing (which I can only enjoy during Holidays when hitting the beach of a country with seaside):see_no_evil:

 

Hope I can contribute to this community and that I can count also on you:punch_tone1:

Cheers:purple_heart:

Customer Community Lead for IFS

I’ve been working in community management since 2012 and started with IFS in Oct 2019. 

I work from home and live just a few miles outside of Portland, Maine

Being that I live in Maine (which is lovely), my favorite vacation spot is basically anywhere warm. San Sebastian, Spain is next on my must-visit list, as soon as I feel bold enough to take my 4 year old son and 6 month old daughter on the flight! Here’s my crew:

Hi guys, I am new in the community but with many years of experience in IFS (starting from Version 2004 up to Apps 10 now).

For many years I have been working in Automotive supplier area, using ASC VAP, EDI, Handling Units already in Warehouse and so on.

Today I am in a different area (Industry, building business) with production, engineering, Rental and Service business.

I love the flexibility of IFS, but I don’t like the error messages and standard report layouts :-D

Who is experienced in Rental Module, knows a working solution of this module and would share this knowledge with me?

Regards Martina
