INDONESIA, 10 March 2000 - Last month, Ateja, an ISO 9002 certified company producing fine quality upholstery fabrics, signed a contract with IFS Indonesia for the delivery of the full package of IFS Manufacturing. The decision was made following the overwhelming success of last year's implementation of IFS Financials and IFS Distribution.
During the evaluation process, Ateja took into considerations a number of aspects such as application functionality, local support and supporting infrastructure within both Ateja and IFS, and its future strategic plans.
This new contract has included five more users. Ateja will implement the IFS Manufacturing modules in its factory site in Bandung, which will be integrated with IFS Financials and IFS Distribution that they are currently using.
"Since Ateja first implemented IFS Financials and IFS Distribution, we have consistently provided a very high level of support and training. As such, they have gotten very confident in using IFS Applications and are marveling at the ease of use of IFS Applications," mentioned Rusli Atmidjaja Budhiman, IFS Account Manager.
"The implementation method, the professional consultants, and the application itself have allowed Ateja to start small and have an ERP solution", added Mr. Gunawan Kenardi, MIS Manager Ateja Tritunggal Corporation.
"To maintain our reputation as the leading supplier of world class automotive manufacturers, we need to stay ahead with the technology," said Arifin Tjandra, Assistant Director of Ateja.
"We believe our investment in ERP solutions will provide our business with a solid backbone to support our business now and in the future."
