LULEA, Sweden, Sept. 11 (UPI) -- Swedish companies IFS Scandinavia and Saab have entered a new and expanded agreement that will aid in standardization of Saab's global operations.

The agreement will serve "as a platform to secure Saab's global growth and includes additional licenses for IFS Applications," IFS, an enterprise software company, said.

"With this agreement, we are staking out our future path with IFS Applications," Saab said. "For a global company such as Saab, it is important to have a business software provider that can deliver first-class industry solutions and services anywhere in the world.

"As we gear up for global growth, this agreement ensures us an agile business system backed by a flexible, worldwide organization."

IFS provides market-leading, off-the-shelf, component-based solutions that provide support in areas such as performance-based logistics, contractor logistics support and fleet operator programs.

Other areas covered include defense manufacturing, maintenance repair and overhaul and supply chain management.

"We are pleased to announce the next chapter in our long-standing business relationship with Saab," IFS Scandinavia Chief Executive Officer Glenn Arnesen said.

"IFS's strategy is to actively explore new ways of delivering services to large, global accounts. In this way, we are able to deliver packaged solutions that combine best-in-class functionality with global support and services in a flexible delivery model based on the needs of the customer."
