Upgrading to IFS Cloud

Upgrading involves more than just gaining access to the new features that accompany a new software update. It is also about mitigating technology, operational, and business risk.

Talk to our experts

Moving to the latest version of IFS ensures your business can continue to innovate and grow at pace.

Although the future of IFS is their IFS Cloud solution, many businesses are still running legacy IFS Application versions. Older systems or versions of software don’t offer the scalability needed for current businesses. Cloud offerings ensure you can move and scale your ERP requirements as needed based on the new features or functionality your business requires.

So, what does upgrading offer?

A chance to reduce operational risk & cost

There is always a fine balance between process cost and operational risk. By upgrading and accessing new functionality, you can simultaneously reduce cost and operational risk.

Access to new functionality

Bi-annual releases provide new capabilities, integrations, and updates to regulations. These enhancements hold the potential to significantly enhance your business processes, enabling your team to allocate time towards other value-added tasks.

A single platform that includes all IFS products

IFS Cloud is a single platform that delivers solutions across service management, enterprise resource planning and enterprise asset management.

Protection against new security threats

Upgrading is not purely about accessing new features but ensuring that your system is protected against ongoing and newly emerging security threats.

A proud IFS Authorised Channel Partner Millennium’s digital transformation offering can take your current ERP software and upgrade you to IFS’ latest release: IFS Cloud. Fundamentally changing how your business operates to better serve your customers, employees and enable further growth.


How does the upgrade process work?

We follow the Millennium Implementation Methodology which is used globally for all implementations. The methodology encompasses all the activities that can take place throughout the implementation process and is supported by strong project management controls to ensure successful delivery.

The phases are:

Plan/ Design

We agree on the contract with you, then hand the project to our implementation team who set up the project organisation. We perform a business requirement and process review, running workshops with you to create the solution design.


We advise you on the required hardware and infrastructure then build the solution, configuring the relevant elements.


We help you to perform Integrated System Testing and User Acceptance Testing on the elements built in the Build phase.


We deploy the different solution elements, taking care to advise you on and help co-ordinate every aspect from Data Migration to End User Testing.


Around three weeks after the solution goes live, we evaluate the project - assessing deliverables and future plans for development.
