Companies worldwide leverage ERP Systems to improve their daily business operations. It is a no-brainer that IFS ERPs improve the efficiency of a business.
As a stakeholder in a company, you must also be using an IFS ERP system. But you should be asking yourself a question
ARE YOU USING YOUR IFS ERP SYSTEM AT ITS FULL CAPACITY?
Now, what do we mean by that? Let us look at the following problem statements.
- AGILITY : If your IFS ERP system enables your organisation to act in a most-agile manner, you can say it’s agile enough. The flow of customers, cash, and materials should be executed in the most agile manner.
- ADAPTABILITY: Have you analyzed if your IFS ERP system is adaptive to the new business scenarios? Asking yourself if your IFS ERP System is flexible to make changes and perceive a new business framework will help.
- REDUCED DOWNTIME: Are you closely monitoring your system downtime? Highly available IFS ERP systems will make the least disturbances to your operations or next to none!
- RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: Is your business team spending time in system supporting your IFS ERP Application? Can we free them from the hustle and let them focus on next generation idea’s that drive your core business? That way you could be getting the best ROI.
- DELAYED SUPPORT: Are you getting the required IFS Functional and technical support or service for every need and on time? Even if you have invested a good number of resources for technical and functional support, you should monitor if the necessary support is being served for every need and within time. If too many resources are wasted in training, inefficient service delivery, and re-iterating problems, it’s time to think Out of box.
- DECISION MAKING: Is your IFS ERP helping your Business users to take Right Decisions? As a stakeholder/owner of a business, your IFS ERP should be capable of extracting desired results that lead you to the correct path of making decisions.
Any of these question’s answer is YES?

We are moving from operational SLA to Business SLA so that we can provide our customers end-to-end support considering their prerequisites and the severity of their requirements.
We use proactive monitoring, which alerts the business before the problem occurs. Hence, reducing the AMS cost and improving the business performance
PRIORITY BASED TICKET MANAGEMENT – SLA TIMELINE
All your tickets will get solved with our online ticket portal.
We follow the SLA timeline for prioritizing tickets.
The tentative timeline for tickets will be decided according to the priority and urgency of tasks
For example –
For priority 1 tickets – the average time to acknowledge will be approx. 20 mins to 30 mins, and for priority 2 tickets – the average time of acknowledgement will be 30 min – 1hr.
When new business developments are planned, it’s important to make sure that the existing system doesn’t get affected by them. Impact Analysis helps us understand the advantages and disadvantages of such scenarios.
At Invasystems, our experts help you to execute the Impact Analysis.
