Engineering & Consulting firm ILF Selects Deltek ERP to Unify Global Operations
Leading global firm has chosen Deltek’s project-based ERP solution to transform and improve project control, collaboration and decision-making across the organization
Düsseldorf, Germany – September 13, 2017 – Deltek, the leading global provider of enterprise software and information solutions for project-based businesses, today announced that ILF – an engineering & consulting firm headquartered in Austria – has selected Deltek’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to improve visibility across its global entities and integrate core business functions. Deltek’s ERP solution is purpose-built with projects at its core to deliver the business agility, transparency and control demanded by modern project-centric organizations.
Headquartered in Innsbruck, Austria, ILF has 2,000 employees in more than 40 office locations across five continents. Combining a local presence with international expertise, ILF has successfully delivered in excess of 6,000 projects over its 50-year history, specializing in oil & gas, energy & climate protection, water & environment and transport & structures. ILF’s impressive development trajectory and plans – a top priority for the firm – have resulted in the board reorganizing the group’s structure to further improve service to its international clients.
As part of this transformation, ILF set out to procure a single ERP solution to support all global business processes and significantly reduce the time taken on internal administration while improving reporting, collaboration and business intelligence. ILF faced historical challenges with the limited professional services automation capabilities of its incumbent ERP system, which meant a number of point solutions had to be used to run the business. Due to these challenges, implementing an integrated ERP out-of-the-box that meets the functional needs of a project-centric organization was crucial to meeting the organization’s development objectives. Deltek’s project-based ERP system seamlessly unites people, processes, and information and connects all core business processes – including business development, project and resource planning, talent management, and multi-currency and multi-company financial management.
Deltek was selected due to the strength of its project-based ERP system, and its unequaled credentials within the consulting and engineering sector. With over 12,000 engineering clients around the world, Deltek has an unmatched track record of successful implementations and delivers a proven path to business process re-engineering and ROI.
“It is our company’s mission to develop and optimize sustainable project solutions for our clients with our proven, comprehensive approach to delivery – this is also true for the company internally. In our search for a new ERP partner, it was critical that we found a system that not only supports the functional requirements of our entire organization, now and in the future, but we also needed a system that demonstrated proven industry credentials and global expertise. We are pleased to select Deltek as that partner,” said Klaus Lässer, CEO at ILF.
“Project excellence and maintaining close relationships with clients are key areas of focus for ILF. Selecting an ERP system to enable digital transformation, process optimization, improved decision making, and change management is critical for ILF’s ambitious business goals. We are thrilled the firm has selected Deltek’s ERP solution to underpin its entire global business and plans for future growth,” said Fergus Gilmore, Deltek’s VP and Managing Director, UK & CE.
