The Army plans to use software from IFS North America for the Logistics Modernization Program underway at all Army arsenals, depots and ammunition plants, company officials announced Feb. 8.
The $9.9 million, five-year contract is a basic purchasing agreement between the Army Materiel Command and the company for IFS applications, components and services.

The Army Materiel Command manages a maintenance and production organization with an assortment of functions.
IFS Applications are designed to bring efficiencies to the ongoing refurbishment of equipment such as ground vehicles, missile and radar support systems, engines, transmissions, and fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.
“Given the demands placed on our military, there is a recognized need to do more with less, and we know IFS Applications to be the ideal tool to get the most out of repair depots, maintenance inventories and associated fabrication operations,” said Cindy Jaudon, IFS North America’s president and chief executive officer.
The Army plans to begin rollout of IFS Applications at the Corpus Christi Army Depot, followed by Rock Island Arsenal, Ill. and the Joint Technology and Manufacturing Center at Watervliet, N.Y.
