Integration of IFS ERP System in Two Major Manufacturing Clients

Integration of IFS ERP System in Two Major Manufacturing Clients

We are pleased to announce the EDI integration of the IFS ERP system in two major manufacturing clients. These integrations showcase our expertise in implementing robust and efficient integrations across a variety of ERP systems.

Both manufacturing clients, whose names are not disclosed due to privacy agreements, are industry leaders with a combined experience of nearly 300 years in their respective markets.

They each have in excess of 20 EDI trading partners and utilise a combination of EDI VAN and AS2 protocols. By integrating the IFS ERP system, Cindercone has streamlined the clients’ business processes and enhanced their supply chain management capabilities.

The integrations to IFS will provide these manufacturing clients with numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved Efficiency: With the implementation of the IFS ERP system, the clients gain access to a comprehensive suite of tools and functionalities that automate and streamline their core business processes. This will result in improved efficiency and reduced manual effort.
  • Enhanced Visibility: Real-time data and analytics provided by the IFS ERP system allow the clients to have better visibility into their supply chain, production cycles, and financial performance. This enables them to make data-driven decisions and respond quickly to changing market demands.
  • Seamless Collaboration: The IFS ERP system facilitates seamless collaboration with EDI trading partners by integrating EDI VAN and AS2 protocols. This integration eliminates manual data entry, reduces human errors, and ensures accurate and timely exchange of information between the clients and their trading partners.

“We are thrilled to have successfully integrated the IFS ERP system in these two major manufacturing clients,” said Martin Hepworth, CEO. “By leveraging the advanced features of the IFS ERP system and our expertise in integration using our Magma Toolkit, we have provided our clients with a scalable and future-proof solution that will drive their growth and success in the coming years.”

New Integration for International Food Company


We have recently completed an integration project for an international food company, as always using our Magma Integration Toolkit alongside our professional services.

The brief was to build upon a simple integration for Reed Boardall (RB), who act as 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) provider for our client.

The diagrams below show in simple terms how Magma is used to automate the flows of data between the SAP Business One ERP system and its Produmex based WMS (Warehouse Management System) and Reed Boardall.

The client, being in the food industry, requires full batch traceability, and some of the larger customers require SSCC (Serial Shipping Container Code) for ease of booking in goods to their DCs (Distribution Centres). Working together with RB, we were able to achieve this.

Magma has been used by this client since 2007 when we implemented some initial EDI interfaces for their customers, plus a simple EB integration.

Projects have followed in most years since then as the business has grown and evolved, demonstrating the long and successful partnerships that Cindercone build with our clients, and the ability of Magma to flex.
