Smaller amounts of winter snow outside our Cheshire HQ may be closing out 2017 with a chill in the air, but indoors the Anthesis team is enjoying the warmth of another successful year. And the team keeps growing. Over the last few months we’ve added several new faces including Infor M3 consultant Joe Walker and Professional Services Manager Oliver Fenton. This trend continues into 2018, with several strategic new hires in the pipeline.
We have also enjoyed growth in the services we offer, with expansion into providing an IFS support service that complements our established offering for Infor M3 users. Our team of fully accredited IFS support consultants provides 24/7 global support from its base in Sri Lanka.
Developing strong, positive relationships has always been at the heart of the Anthesis approach, and we continue to deepen the bonds with leading software vendors IFS and Infor. We operate increasingly closely with their service and support teams, and we’re broadening the range of software solutions we work with.
As 2017 closes, we’re particularly pleased to see our second full implementation of the IFS ERP solution go live. We’ve played a part in, and even helped rescue, a number of ERP projects over the last 12 months, but it’s especially satisfying to complete a major engagement where we’ve taken the lead from start to finish.
Our founders, Charles Noden and Tom Constantine, are now very familiar faces at industry events. Anthesis sponsored both the Infor M3 User Association UK conference in March and the IFS Customer Summit and User Group Conference in November. Plans for next year’s events are already well advanced, in particular for the IFS World Conference in May, at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta.
A highlight of the Anthesis year in 2017 was team participation in Tough Mudder, an intense endurance event over a gruelling course of several miles. We raised money for charity as we demonstrated our team commitment to overcoming obstacles and getting to the finish.
Thank you to all our customers and partners – 2017 wouldn’t have been the same without you! We look forward to continuing to work with you, as the continuous innovation in ERP applications promises a busy future for us all.
Have a great Christmas everyone & a prosperous 2018.
