De Havilland Canada Chooses IFS to Integrate its Value Chain

De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited (De Havilland Canada) is rationalizing its application landscape and replacing 300+ legacy business applications with an extended enterprise resource planning (ERP) platform from IFS. 

IFS Applications will be deployed in the cloud at De Havilland Canada’s facilities in Toronto and will support operational processes including sales and order management, manufacturing, materials management, procurement and finance, and aftermarket support.

“We chose IFS because of its impressive qualifications in the global aerospace and defense sector as well as the comprehensive nature of its technology,” said Anca Preda, vice president, Information Technology, De Havilland Canada. “By unifying our entire operations on the IFS stack we will get full control and transparency across mission-critical processes including sales, project manufacturing, materials management, procurement, finance, all the way through to aftermarket service. All using out-of-the-box, fully integrated functionality. This is a significant investment by De Havilland Canada that will help us increase efficiency and effectiveness while offering even more value to our customers.”

“Concluding an extensive bid process, IFS was selected among other reputable ERP solutions,” said Scott Helmer, president, IFS Aerospace and Defense (A&D). “De Havilland is a beacon in the aerospace sector and we are thrilled to be joining their journey of transformation and development. Our product offering has been tried and tested over decades by some of the largest and most demanding organizations in the A&D sector, making us the ideal partner for any business looking to optimize its make-to-order or make-to-stock operations and seamlessly integrate it with project management, finance, CRM, supply chain, service and beyond.”

The solution will be implemented by IFS partner Tsunami Tsolutions.
