We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Ask for all-inclusive pricing, as they are pretty flexible if you ask for custom models."
"Pricing is an area that could be improved. They could be more competitive."
"IFS Applications is expensive software, but it's on par with SAP and Oracle. It's for large enterprises and government entities and not for small and medium-sized enterprises. They have one licensing model, but if you want to have a module-specific license, they provide component-based licenses. Unlike SAP and Oracle, it doesn't have different levels of licensing. It's one level of licensing."
