Solna, Sweden—Dec. 19, 2014—International Business Systems (IBS), a global integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) and supply chain solutions provider, was selected as a strategic partner by Eltex of Sweden, a manufacturer of stop-motion equipment for textile machines.
Eltex has operations in Sweden, Ireland and the U.S. The company will continue to invest in yarn supervision technology, whilst at the same time, look to diversify its portfolio into new areas such as temperature measuring systems for food handling.
This new partnership marks the conclusion of a competitive evaluation process that Eltex started two years ago, aiming to achieve one consolidated, global integrated ERP system throughout the organization. Eltex will deploy IBS Enterprise and IBS Analytics across all businesses to address issues such as integration between different areas of the supply chain, reducing the amount of manual intervention and gaining transparency throughout enterprise-wide processes globally. IBS will host the solution for Eltex in one of its dedicated data centers, delivering a complete, reliable and robust solution on the IBS Cloud.

The rich, standard functionality of IBS Enterprise and Business Analytics, combined with its global organization and presence, aligns well with our needs,” said Brian Hicks, managing director of Eltex.
