PRESS RELEASE

OSLO, Norway — IFS, the global cloud enterprise software company, today announced that The Norwegian Police has upgraded to IFS Cloud to ensure it can provide the country’s police forces with the precise resources and assets they need, when they are required.

IFS will replace the existing legacy system infrastructure with a unified national material and logistics system that offers insights into the condition, inventory, and location of equipment and materials, broken down by district, as well as all logistics handling of the material. Once fully implemented, the solution will be deployed to around 25,000 users across Norway.

Helge Clem, Director of Shared Services at The Norwegian Police, emphasized the importance of the upgrade, stating, “Upgrading to IFS Cloud marks a strategic shift towards strengthening our asset management and operational readiness throughout the Norwegian Police and our operations. This system underscores our dedication to upholding public safety and trust.”

Glenn Arnesen, President of Europe North at IFS, said, “IFS Cloud is well suited for organizations like The Norwegian Police as it has the flexibility to support multiple functions. With this upgrade, IFS Cloud will support PFT on its journey to resource optimization, helping deliver on its ongoing commitment to service excellence and providing a flexible and user-friendly solution that caters to its diverse needs.”

The Norwegian Police will utilize five IFS Cloud customer modules: Supply Chain, B2B Commerce, Procurement, Maintenance and Finance, whilst also benefiting from IFS Success Services - a suite of services designed to help customers get the most out of their IFS investment.
