Tri-Point goes live on IFS with Astra-led implementation
Tri-Point, an oil and gas production and process equipment and services company, has successfully implemented IFS Applications™ 9 at five recently acquired companies in the United States with Astra Inc. Now, TriPoint has a uniform solution across all of its regions, resulting in increased operational efficiencies and better coordination.
“The decision to choose IFS Applications was influenced by factors such as flexibility of the solution, short implementation time and the fact that it was very well suited to our needs. With the implementation of IFS Applications 9, we plan to increase the efficiency of operations in key areas of our business such as procurement and the production planning process” said Britt Schmidt, CEO of Tri-Point.
Tri-Point opted for the core Supply Chain, Manufacturing and Finance modules of IFS Applications, and selected Astra’s end-to-end implementation services that included IFS solution design, forms/reports/custom configuration-development, interface development/configuration, security setups and legacy data migration. In addition, it also included training of functional experts, core-users and end users, cutover execution and post go-live support.
A key requirement for Tri-Point was to complete the project on an NTE (Not-ToExceed) basis. The first phase of the project was successfully completed within 10 months, as scheduled, with rollouts to three of the acquired companies. Astra was, then, tapped for the implementations for two subsequent acquisitions. This next phase was also completed successfully within the scheduled timeline of 6 months.
“The Oil & Gas sector is one of the larger target segments for IFS as well as Astra in the US. We are pleased with the successful deployments at Tri-Point, ensuring increased efficiency and increased competitiveness. Now, they are well positioned to leverage IFS for future growth and scalability as they expand and grow their business” said Naren Velu, CEO & President of Astra, Inc.
Astra has been a pioneer in IFS consulting, implementation and support to companies in North America. With its in-depth knowledge and extensive experience, Astra looks forward to continuing to help Tri-Point in achieving its business goals with IFS Applications.
