2008 Marks the 30th Anniversary of International Business Systems (IBS) Developing and Delivering World-Class Business Systems

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) - IBS was formed in Sweden in 1978 and has since grown to become one of the industry's leading vendors of supply chain management software, with subsidiaries in 22 countries and over 5,000 customers around the world.

"This Pearl Anniversary is an extraordinary milestone for an extraordinary company," says Mark Cockings, Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing of IBS. "Since I started with IBS, I have been privileged to work with some very talented and passionate people. This spirit of excellence and commitment has resulted in an incredibly loyal customer base, without which there is no business. We put major emphasis on our customer relationships. Our extensive list of long-term customers, many of whom have been with IBS for decades, proves this statement."

"We have always had a great relationship and very good communication with IBS," says Krister Söderberg, CEO of Sandviken Energi, which has been with IBS from the very beginning. "IBS cares about the services it offers and they work hard to stay on top. Over the years we have had multiple upgrades with IBS and we are very satisfied. IBS has great customer service and we trust them to do the job. I have always been happy to recommend IBS to others and hope to continue the good relationship our two companies have enjoyed for over 30 years."

"IBS has succeeded over such a long period because of our commitment to delivering supply chain management software and solutions dedicated to the needs of our customers. This has meant adapting to significant changes over the years and ensuring our supply chain and inventory management software, ERP software, services and support are maintained to the highest standard," says Cockings.

IBS now has a major direct presence in five continents, with dedicated supply chain management software and solutions for specific industries, including inventory management software, pharmaceuticals, ERP software, electrical products, paper and packaging, office supplies, publishing and automotive.
