Cleo partners with Astra to design an IFS ERP solution

Cleo, a provider of ecosystem integration software, is forming a partnership with Astra Inc. to co-develop a native integration for IFS ERP customers.

The exclusive, global partnership creates a pathway for IFS customers to access the Cleo Integration Cloud platform, extending those organizations’ integration capabilities beyond B2B to include application and data integration for back-end ERP, CRM, FSM, SCM, BI, and other associated applications.

The planned native connector is expected to be generally available in June. Targeted for mid-market and enterprise organizations, businesses using the connector will be able to integrate their internal data flows as well as their external ecosystem interactions with customers, suppliers, and external trading partners to IFS through Cleo Integration Cloud.

This will enable joint Cleo-Astra customers to extend the power of their IFS ERP solution by seamlessly integrating CRM, EDI, fulfillment, and other enterprise applications and ecosystems.

The result is complete and automated end-to-end data workflows and visibility into mission-critical cycles, such as order-to-cash, procure-to-pay, and load tender-to-invoice, for improved operational outcomes and business intelligence.

Astra has been a pioneer in IFS consulting, implementation, and support to companies in North America for more than 10 years. With its in-depth knowledge and extensive experience in implementing IFS Applications, the company is now expanding into EMEA and other regions where IFS customers are based.

In addition to providing IFS consulting services, Astra has also developed innovative information management workflow applications for IFS customers, including FastAP, FastDocs, AutoArchive and B2B Portals (Customer and Supplier Portals).

Cleo is thrilled to enter this global partnership with Astra, where the mutual goal is to deliver ecosystem integration solutions that empower IFS customers to create more value with their ecosystem interactions, said Mahesh Rajasekharan, Cleo's CEO.

Cleo Integration Cloud is designed to help organizations connect, integrate, and analyze the dynamic network of ecosystem entities – people, partners, customers, systems, applications, things – and enable the critical integrations driving business revenue.
