CalsonicKansei Selects IFS Applications




IFS, the global enterprise applications company, recently announced that CalsonicKansei, a Tier One automotive parts supplier, has chosen IFS Applications as its new enterprise solution for its Brazil operations. CalsonicKansei was formed in 2000 through a merger of Calsonic Corporation and Kansei Corporation, and in 2005, CalsonicKansei became a consolidated subsidiary of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.

With more than 17,000 employees worldwide (with approximately 2,700 located in the U.S. across four locations in Tennessee and Mississippi), CalsonicKansei manufactures climate control, electronics, engine cooling, exhaust, interior and automotive integration systems and has over 50 manufacturing sites across the Americas, Europe, and Asia Pacific. The main enterprise resource planning (ERP) project objective for CalsonicKansei was to select a solution that would standardize global business processes.

The IFS Applications modules purchased ensure CalsonicKansei’s success in areas such as order management, warehouse operations, preventive maintenance, operations planning and scheduling, finance, and accounting. The company hopes to realize benefits from IFS Applications such as global visibility and reporting capabilities, and reduced fixed costs related to its business plan through 2016. This was a significant win by IFS whereby it reportedly replaced two well-known aging incumbent ERP systems and beat an omnipresent competitor for the replacement deal.
