The order includes solutions for business to business e-commerce, supply chain management, distribution, purchasing, inventory control, business analysis and decision-making support.

Mayflex, leading distributor of structured network cabling systems and associated networking components in the UK, chose IBS in competition with six other suppliers. Their choice was based on IBS' ASW software being able to handle Mayflex' complex pricing structure, and the fact that it enables continued efficiency improvement and a high degree of integration regarding the company's distribution and supply chain operations. - With the new software, we can continue to provide the best products on the market at competitive prices, but with even faster delivery and even better customer service, says Andrew Percival, Sales Director for Mayflex. - It's very obvious that it is within supply chain management that the new e-business technology is growing fastest, says Staffan Ahlberg, CEO of IBS. IBS has a world-leading position in both these areas with many ongoing sales cases worldwide.
