Mid-market Distribution Companies Reduce Financial Commitment and Gain an Easy Way to Deploy Best-of-Breed Supply Chain Solutions
SOLNA, Sweden, March 3, 2014 – International Business Systems (IBS), a global leading integrated ERP and supply chain solution provider, today announced a new monthly subscription price model that gives companies an easy and commercially risk-free way of deploying its supply chain solutions.
IBS is a trusted industry leader of ERP and WMS distribution software, renowned for consistently improving operational efficiencies and business performance for mid-market companies challenged by the complexities of managing distribution.
The full suite of IBS software, including IBS Enterprise (ERP), IBS Dynaman (WMS), IBS Bookmaster and IBS Sales & Operations Planning, is now available for deployment under a new monthly subscription price model – via the cloud , but also on-premise, as required.
Under the new monthly price model, companies face no lock-in period, nor any long-term commitments to the software and services.
“Over the last few years, our company has renewed its focus on delivering value to distributors in their quest to hone their supply chains and realize greater business benefits,” said Scott Brown, Executive Vice President of Global Cloud and Customer Support Services. “IBS wants to facilitate options for customers and make it easy for them to experience the productivity gains that IBS offers. Our goal is to build long-term value for customers and remove barriers to entry.”
“Omni-channel retailing and multi-channel collaboration are two key capabilities that could benefit from easier ways to procure and consume supply chain software,” said Steve Banker, Service Director for Supply Chain Management at ARC Advisory Group. “As the differences between B2B and B2C supply chain models fade, IBS’ new subscription model is set to take cloud services to their next logical level.”
Among the advantages of the new subscription model is single tenancy in the cloud. Month-to-month subscribers will not be forced to share cloud resources in a multi-tenant cloud services model but will enjoy the same benefits as companies with long-term IBS contracts.
IBS customers also control their upgrade paths or can delegate IBS to manage those requirements. The month-to-month subscription model includes all of the following elements:
- Software license
- Maintenance and support services
- Professional services for implementation
- Applications upgrades
- Deployment in the cloud and associated services
Monthly fees are available from US$99 per user per month and include all of the above elements.
IBS applications are now far more affordable yet still deliver benefits such as lower IT cost through fixed monthly fees, reduced business risk, faster time to value and greater flexibility – combined with the advanced functionality of the IBS industry-leading ERP and Supply Chain solutions.
