IFS Cloud Enterprise Applications FY2022 Revenue Up 80% YoY

Analyst Take: Cloud enterprise applications continue to gain momentum for software vendor IFS as the company’s ERP, enterprise asset management, enterprise service management, and customer experience management applications earn broader customer adoption around the world.

The growth numbers for full FY2022 are impressive, with IFS seeing its cloud revenue up by 80 percent from new and existing customers moving to IFS Cloud over FY2021, and a 57 percent rise in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), according to the company. IFS also saw a healthy 28 percent rise in its overall software revenue YoY.

These are great growth numbers from this focused enterprise software vendor that targets several specific industries, including aerospace and defense, energy utilities and resources, construction and engineering, manufacturing, service industries, and telecommunications.

Here are the full year IFS FY2022 earnings figures by the numbers:

  • FY2022 IFS software revenue was 6.6 billion Swedish Krona (SEK), which is about $634.8 million USD, up 28 percent YoY from 2021.
  • FY2022 IFS overall recurring revenue 6.1 billion SEK, which is about $586.6 million USD, an increase of 44 percent YoY from 2021.
  • FY2022 IFS net revenue was 8.4 billion SEK, which is about $808.2 million USD, up 19 percent YoY from 2021.

These are the only earnings figures released by the privately held IFS, but while limited in scope, they do show the company’s rising sales and popularity with customers that are moving to deepen their digital transformation efforts within their internal technology operations. We appreciate the breadth and depth of IFS’s software platforms, which are built to help growing enterprises better manage their customer lists as well as their regional or global assets in equipment, parts, tools and more. IFS software also helps customers to better manage their service operations.

The IFS strategy is to bring immense value to customers by leveraging better organization using AI integrations, bringing together data from remote silos, and by making other process improvements that can be integrated with existing critical enterprise applications. It is a strategy that we believe is a great starting point for customers that want to bolster their operations with a helpful partner that delivers powerful technologies.

IFS Cloud Enterprise Applications Progress in FY2022

In the first quarter of 2022, IFS launched a new Partner Success program to assist business partners in accelerating IFS’s all-important partner strategy. This was a smart move that will surely produce dividends for customers and partners to get IFS more business in the global marketplace. In April of 2022, IFS launched its Arcwide joint venture with BearingPoint to help partners and customers accelerate the pace of IFS Cloud deployments in enterprise IT environments. And in October IFS launched its rebranded IFS Unleashed global community event to show off its wares with customers and partners, and to help boost its exposure in the IT ecosphere.

IFS CEO Darren Roos said in a statement that he expects 2023 to be an exciting year for the company as it continues its work bringing together its employees, partners, products and industry expertise to better serve its existing and new customers. With Roos and the rest of his leadership team at the helm, we believe that IFS looks to be on track to do just that.
