Airport operator Avinor extends its investment in IFS Applications
  • Operating Norway’s 46 civil airports, some 4,000 Avinor staff will benefit from the flexible architecture and intuitive user interface of IFS Applications 9
IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that state-owned Avinor has chosen to upgrade its existing IFS Applications™ suite to empower its users with a user-friendly and flexible technical platform that provides a solid foundation for driving digitalisation.

By upgrading to IFS Applications 9, Avinor will be able to leverage its layered application architecture and new support model, which will ensure that the company is always benefitting from the latest updates and enhancements in a cost-efficient way.

In addition, the upgrade will give Avinor extended capabilities to monitor and document that work processes are carried out in accordance with the industry’s stringent safety requirements. IFS Applications 9 will also empower Avinor employees with the role-based and customisable IFS Lobby™ interface.

“We chose to upgrade to IFS Applications 9 because we see great benefit in running evergreen ERP in the future,” Avinor CIO Brede Nielsen said. “Our goal is to remain the leader in terms of service delivery, safety, quality and cost efficiency. In an increasingly complex industry, a comprehensive ERP suite is one of the most important enablers for achieving operational excellence.”

Glenn Arnesen, CEO of IFS in Scandinavia, added, "Avinor plays a pivotal role in ensuring Norway’s airports run smoothly, making process efficiency and safety of the utmost importance. IFS Applications 9 will give Avinor a solid platform for ensuring business transparency and control in an always-updated, flexible environment. We are proud of the renewed trust that Avinor has placed in our solutions and we look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial partnership.”

The two companies’ business relationship dates back to 1996, when IFS Applications was chosen as the central maintenance system for Oslo Airport Gardermoen. In 2012, Avinor chose to deploy IFS Applications 8 as its central ERP solution to manage and control its varied business processes across a network of 46 airports all over Norway. In 2013, the company opted to expand its IFS portfolio with additional functionality for HSEQ (health, safety, environment, quality) reporting.

Another area where Avinor already enjoys major benefits, thanks to IFS Applications, is within procurement. The procurement solution is used for achieving a more precise ordering of security personnel, something that used to be a major cost and was sometimes problematic because of the airports’ diverse needs. The solution, together with process improvement, has contributed to substantial savings.
