IFS assyst

IFS assyst combines enterprise service management (ESM), IT service management (ITSM) and IT operations management (ITOM). The solution is built on the technology of Axios Assyst, a company acquired by IFS in 2021. IFS assyst monitors, automates and optimizes the components of a service.

Service providers use the solution to structure operations. Among other things, IFS assyst can break down services into parts to track progress and find room for improvement. In addition, customer inquiries can be received and processed in a central system.

IFS regularly updates the solution. IFS Cloud 22R2, the latest version of the organization’s cloud platform, includes several new features for IFS assyst.
