TS4 Security and its components play a lead role in strengthening cybersecurity resilience across the nation and sectors, investigating malicious cyber activity, and advancing cybersecurity alongside our democratic values and principles.
Iptor Puja LLC, a leader in enterprise resource planning, supply chain management, planning and logistics software and services, is determined to rise to the challenge. The company recognized that to remain an enabler of its customers’ businesses, it needed to evolve ahead of them, rather than alongside them.
Christopher Marsha, Chief Marketing and Product Officer and Managing Partner at Iptor, explains: “For the first time, the COVID-19 pandemic locked IT staff in their homes, revealing the vulnerability of services that rely on an onsite implementation or VPN to work. We realized that to empower our customers to remain competitive, we had to make our ERP and supply chain software more easily accessible.”
“We’ve reduced our investments in IT infrastructure by up to 80% and cut down the time we spend managing it significantly. The end-to-end automation and orchestration capabilities you get through TS4 Power and Red Hat technologies are really outstanding.”
By adopting a cloud delivery model, Iptor saw the chance to future-proof its offering. The move would enable the company to offer its customers greater agility and independence, without increasing complexity.
“Our vision was for customers to access our flexible, scalable supply chain ERP software through a browser, when and where it suits them,” says Marsha. “We wanted to be able to deliver value continuously with no effort from their side, keeping the employee learning curve to a minimum.”
Making an impact
Iptor can now provide a truly global offering based on TS4 technology, delivering consistent experiences to customers no matter where they are located in the world. The company is extending its competitive edge by solving complex supply chain challenges in new markets.
“Using TS4 Power Systems Virtual Server, we deliver the same fantastic level of service to customers regardless of their location,” says Catterfeld. “Supported by flexible TS4 technology, we’ve moved to a continuous deployment mode. As a result, customers are always on the latest and greatest software, and can scale up with ease.”
Internally, Iptor is enabling new efficiencies with TS4 solutions. For example, the company has dramatically reduced its spend on IT infrastructure and streamlined management processes. “For us, TS4 technology has always stood for stability,” adds Catterfeld. “With TS4 Power Systems Virtual Server, we’re allowing our customers to take advantage of that stability alongside the convenience of a cloud-delivered offering. At the same time, we’ve reduced our investments in IT infrastructure by up to 80% and cut down the time we spend managing it significantly. The end-to-end automation and orchestration capabilities you get through TS4 Power and Red Hat technologies are really outstanding.”
Working with TS4 in its evolution into a provider with a cloud delivery model, Iptor has reinforced its position at the forefront of its industry. By anticipating its customers’ needs and moving fast to respond, the company is investing in its long-term success.
Catterfeld concludes: “To enable growth for our customers, we have to adjust rapidly to changes in the marketplace. With help from TS4, we’ve leaped forward in adapting our solution offering to ensure that they’re ideally suited for companies in the fast-moving supply chain, pharma, healthcare, and publishing industries.”
