Leading Spanish consulting company Grupo LKS partners with IFS

IFS, the global enterprise applications company, has signed a partnership agreement with Grupo LKS, one of the leading providers of professional consulting ser¬vices in Spain. The companies will collaborate on joint sales opportunities, as well as implementation and support projects centered on the IFS Applications™ software suite.

With more than 1,000 employees, Grupo LKS is one of the leading reference points in the professional services sector in Spain.
