IFS, the global enterprise applications company, announces that Maersk Drilling has signed an agreement for the development of new advanced maintenance planning functionality. The agreement includes additional licenses worth approximately $1.8 million US.
In October 2012, IFS announced that Maersk Drilling signed an agreement for the deployment of IFS Applications as its ERP system.
With Maersk Drilling’s ERP implementation going into the roll-out phase, Maersk Drilling and IFS have agreed to extend the companies’ collaboration—both in the ongoing ERP roll-out program and as partners developing new advanced maintenance planning functionality.
“We are seeking ways to increase efficiency, improve quality and reduce operational cost,” Maersk Drilling CIO, Jesper K Hansen said. “And with IFS Applications, we are set to use ERP as one of the enablers striving for operational excellence.”
IFS Scandinavia CEO Glenn Arnesen said, “There is no doubt that the partnership with Maersk Drilling has improved IFS’s position in the oil and gas service market. We are very pleased to enhance our partnership to support Maersk Drilling with their plans going forward.”
The IFS solution purchased by Maersk Drilling in 2012 includes components for financials, project management, supply chain management and maintenance.
