ITASCA, Ill., Dec 21, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) —
Meggitt (Maryland) Inc., a Germantown, MD-based division of Meggitt
Sensing Systems, has selected IFS Applications as its enterprise
resource planning (ERP) system of record.

Meggitt (Maryland) Inc. produces the industry-leading Wilcoxon Research
line of accelerometers, vibration sensors, and accessories for
industrial predictive maintenance applications. These sensors are
essential to vibration monitoring programs that save money, reduce
downtime, and enable maintenance to be planned before equipment failure.
The company is based in Germantown, Maryland and operates as a division
of Meggitt Sensing Systems, which has nine manufacturing sites across
the United States and Europe.

According to Meggitt (Maryland) president Derek Carbin, IFS Applications
was selected from large field of ERP products for its ability to meet
the diverse needs of the company, which manufactures both
industrial/commercial products and highly engineered products for
leading edge applications.

Meggitt (Maryland) will implement a broad spectrum of IFS Applications
with functionality including IFS Business Performance, IFS Financials,
IFS Distribution, IFS Manufacturing, IFS Engineering/Product Design, IFS
Maintenance, IFS Sales and Support, and IFS Human Resources.

“IFS Applications was the best fit to handle our diverse needs without
sacrificing flexibility, ease of navigation or agility,” Dr. Carbin
said. “Our organization will be in a much better position for growth
with this move to IFS Applications and our customers will benefit as we
will be able to provide much more timely and detailed reporting and
automated order placement with immediate email acknowledgement. It will
provide us with greater visibility of inventory and enable us to manage
it much better than today.”

“IFS Applications is an excellent fit for companies like Meggitt
(Maryland), with its complex business model,” IFS North America
President and CEO Cindy Jaudon said. “As an organization, IFS is
committed to serving companies that need highly advanced functionality
that can be easily adopted by middle market companies.”
