International Business Systems (IBS) this month unveiled IBS Business Suite 2014, a new offering that includes all of the Swedish software company's business applications. In addition to being a marketing umbrella, the Business Suite implements standard user interfaces and integration points across IBS' various products.

Business Suite 2014 includes functionality in the areas of ERP, Warehouse Management (WM), and Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP). Specific products include the flagship IBS Enterprise offering, which runs on IBM i and Windows, in addition to IBS Dynaman, IBS Bookmaster, and IBS S&OP.

IBS says the individual components have been integrated into a suite that provides a single view of all distribution operations, and will simplify the complexities involved in distribution activities.

IBS CTO Mike Verdeyen says the new offering is aimed at mid-tier companies with complex distribution operations, especially those in the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, automotive aftermarket, 3PL, and wholesale distribution industries.

The company will be showing off Business Suite 2014 at the CSCMP Annual Global Conference 2013, a supply chain conference taking place this week in Denver, Colorado.
