Solna, Sweden—June 6, 2014—International Business Systems (IBS), a global integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain provider, announced an exclusive partnership with Flower Mound, Texas-based The Mesa Group to meet the demands for IBS Enterprise deployments in the Americas and help customers realize business success faster.
IBS provides ERP and warehouse management system (WMS) distribution software, preferred for consistently improving operational efficiencies and business performance for mid-market companies challenged by the complexities of managing distribution.
The partnership with The Mesa Group expands the breadth and depth of IBS’ technical and project management capabilities for IBS Enterprise implementations, upgrades, modifications, enhancements and other business needs across the installed base. With 25 Mesa Group consultants working in the IBS market space, IBS effectively doubled its deployment capability in the Americas.
According to Tim Conroy, general manager of the Americas, IBS, “Our alignment with The Mesa Group means we can have many more concurrent IBS Enterprise implementations taking place so that our customers realize value sooner. As the only certified partner for IBS Enterprise, The Mesa Group will be better aligned with our business strategy and product roadmaps, too.”
With almost 20 years’ experience and a focus on physical distribution, supply chain management, e-business applications and customer service, The Mesa Group uses technology to solve business problems.
“Unique to our consultants is their former roles in customer organizations,” said Jim Smith, president and founder of The Mesa Group. “Our team members bring strong backgrounds on the needs and wants of customers, especially in the IBS market space. They know what it takes to deliver great customer service because they experienced it on the other side.”
IBS applications are designed to provide 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 ERP and supply chain solutions.
