Astra Canyon Group and Graham Manufacturing Forge a Trailblazing Partnership

Astra Canyon Group and Graham Manufacturing Forge a Trailblazing Partnership

In a groundbreaking move that marks a significant milestone for both Astra Canyon Group (ACG) and Graham Manufacturing, we are proud to announce our collaboration, setting the stage for the first-ever IFS channel resell deal in North America. This partnership is not only groundbreaking but also born out of a shared vision and a commitment to addressing the unique challenges faced by Graham Manufacturing. 

Challenges That Sparked Change 

Graham Manufacturing, a distinguished player in the industry, recognized the need for change. Their existing systems were grappling with a series of challenges that demanded a fresh approach: 

  • Manual Entry Blues: The manual entry and re-entry of the same information had become a tedious and error-prone process, hampering efficiency. 
  • Aging Systems: Their legacy systems were struggling to keep pace with the ever-evolving demands of their industry and the world at large. 
  • Customer Demands: Graham Manufacturing's clients were increasingly seeking more information than their current systems could provide, putting pressure on their customer support capabilities. 

Unlocking the Power of IFS 

In their search for a solution, Graham Manufacturing selected IFS for their ERP system, and here's why: 

  • Streamlining Operations: The innovative system offered by IFS provides built-in functionality like role-specific "lobbies," which will enable Graham Manufacturing to define and prioritize schedules and tasks across different departments, potentially leading to significant streamlining of their operations. 
  • Consolidation of Systems: IFS presents a holistic solution with the ability to consolidate multiple discrete programs responsible for various functions into one comprehensive enterprise system. This approach will help Graham eliminate silos and enhance efficiency. 
  • The Perfect Fit: Graham Manufacturing chose Astra Canyon and IFS because both software and service seamlessly align with their unique requirements. IFS is not only well-equipped to handle a project-based company like Graham, but also boasts built-in capabilities for managing defense manufacturing and meeting FedRAMP requirements. 
  • Aerospace & Defense Expertise: Another critical factor influencing Graham Manufacturing's decision-making process is IFS's extensive presence in the aerospace and defense sector. Considering IFS as a potential partner with a deep understanding of the specific system requirements of government customers provides Graham with peace of mind. 

A Trailblazing Partnership Begins 

As Graham Manufacturing embarks on this transformative journey, Astra Canyon Group stands by their side as a trusted partner and guide. Our commitment is to help Graham Manufacturing overcome challenges, achieve operational excellence, and realize its vision of growth and innovation. 

This trailblazing partnership not only signifies a substantial milestone for both organizations, but also demonstrates the power of collaboration in addressing complex industry challenges. Together, we are forging a path toward a more efficient, connected, and innovative future.
