We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The stability of the solution is fine."

More Deltek CostPoint Pros →

"The most valuable feature is the distribution module.""The best feature is the maintenance module, which is essentially an industry-specific workflow designed with a manufacturing module as per industry standards. It's very precise and specific without having complex functionalities. It's straightforward. Field Service Management is definitely a wonderful product that IFS has developed because it caters to field services. The energy and utility sectors can answer their business needs using the software.""IFS Applications' best feature is the user-friendly interface that has a .NET Framework application in the front end and an Oracle database and WebLogic middleware."

Cons
"Overall, the solution is very difficult to use and learn. The learning curve is difficult. Also, the GUI and user interface are not intuitive."

More Deltek CostPoint Cons →

"IFS Applications is not robust enough to handle high-volume transactions, so it's not suitable for larger enterprises.""The integration is a bit complex, and post-implementation support services need to be improved. They have a service center based out of Sri Lanka. The support aspect is good, but the response time is a little slower than we anticipated. In the next release, it would be better if Warehouse Management could be improvised. They have a product line that's a data warehouse management system, but it's still premature and requires a bit of enhancement.""An area for improvement would be transactions, which can be tedious to complete as the process is very complex."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "IFS Applications is expensive software, but it's on par with SAP and Oracle. It's for large enterprises and government entities and not for small and medium-sized enterprises. They have one licensing model, but if you want to have a module-specific license, they provide component-based licenses. Unlike SAP and Oracle, it doesn't have different levels of licensing. It's one level of licensing."
  • "There's an additional yearly cost for support."
