Janoschka prepares for global growth with IFS Applications

Janoschka, a leading provider of prepress solutions headquartered in Germany, has selected IFS Applications™ to enable its continued growth globally and to improve production control and planning.

Janoschka, a family-run enterprise based in Kippenheim, Germany, has grown from a five-man local operation founded in 1976 to 1,400 employees in 14 countries worldwide. The company, however, found its growth plans hampered by its legacy business software, which could not fully support its international operations.

After shortlisting a number of ERP vendors, including a major German provider, Janoschka opted for IFS Applications, purchasing components for manufacturing, engineering, project management, maintenance, supply chain management, sales and service, human resources, document management, quality management, and financials.

”We needed to replace our legacy business applications because they had become outdated,“ said Markus Gasser, CIO at Janoschka. ”They were unable to support our ambitions to continue growing internationally. We also saw this as an opportunity to enhance production control and planning in our operations worldwide. IFS provided us with excellent references in our industry and offered modern software architecture designed to support growth. Moreover, the IFS team displayed a high level of professional skills.”

“We are pleased to have signed a major international player like Janoschka,” said Peter Höhne, Vice President Sales & Marketing, IFS Europe Central. “Manufacturers looking for innovative and international ERP solutions that can grow with them as their businesses expand are increasingly turning to IFS. We hope to be able to help Janoschka build on its success for many years to come.”
