Expanding consultancy Novacura to support expansion of IFS Applications’ footprint in the energy and utilities sector

Novacura is a growing ERP consulting company with 50 employees working at five offices in Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, and Poland. Based on IFS Applications, the company provides industry solutions to small and mid-sized companies in the energy and utilities sector.

“IFS is a strong software partner who will enable us to continue our business growth,” Novacura Sweden CEO Klas Klasman said. “IFS Applications provides an ideal platform on which we can preconfigure our solutions to the requirements of the energy and utilities sector. By becoming a channel partner, we will be able to deliver and implement our industry solutions more quickly and efficiently.”

IFS Scandinavia Senior Vice President Partner Business Elni Kullmer added, “We are happy to announce the collaboration with Novacura, which is in line with our long-term partner growth strategy. Combining Novacura’s industry expertise with our robust business solutions will offer our customers a wider range of choices while increasing our sales capacity.”

IFS and Novacura have a number of existing customers, including utility company Hafslund and national grid owner and operator Statnett. Under the partnership agreement, Novacura consultants will be trained and certified via IFS Academy. Novacura will also get access to the internal resources IFS has created to help customers upgrade to the latest version of IFS Applications. In Scandinavia alone, this upgrade initiative has already benefited more than 100 customers over the past year, leading to shorter time to value and lower costs.
