Baker Tilly Digital secures contract to implement IFS Cloud for Vernacare, a healthcare private equity firm

With flexibility and business synchronization, Baker Tilly Digital moves businesses to IFS Cloud as a scalable, future-proof ERP system.

CHICAGO (Dec. 13, 2023) – Leading advisory CPA firm Baker Tilly US, LLP (Baker Tilly) announces its selection by Vernacare, an award-winning global supplier of sustainable healthcare solutions, to implement IFS Cloud, the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software by IFS.

“Vernacare is currently managing multiple ERP systems, and IFS Cloud will provide the technically sophisticated solution to phase out these legacy systems,” said Peter Pearce, Principal for Baker Tilly Digital. “We’re honored to contribute to Vernacare's digital transformation and standardization of processes, establishing a centralized operating system.”

Baker Tilly will facilitate a six-phase rollout process, leveraging Vernacare's manufacturing sites as bases for each phase. Structured Support, Baker Tilly's pre-agreed service level support offering for IFS, will be utilized post-upgrade to conduct functional and technical reviews and enhancements.

Vernacare, a H.I.G. Capital business, headquartered in Chorley, United Kingdom specializes in infection prevention, clinical waste management and surgical solutions. Pioneers of solutions for healthcare environments, Vernacare has a proven history of developing and manufacturing products that have helped to improve the lives of patients, residents and healthcare professionals globally.

In addition to creating a centralized system, IFS Cloud will enable easier service management at each manufacturing site, providing orders for the servicing of thousands of machines and equipment.

Tim Wadhams, Chief Technical Officer for Vernacare, emphasized the collaborative effort between the internal ERP team and Baker Tilly, stating, “Having successfully implemented IFS App 7.5 with Baker Tilly previously, we trust their expertise as an IFS Cloud implementor. This project is a comprehensive initiative encompassing our entire business, and we recognize the benefits of transitioning to one centralized operating system.”

Moving to IFS Cloud enables Vernacare to innovate and grow more rapidly. Baker Tilly’s IFS Cloud software implementation covers planning, analysis and design, build and test, and implement and support phases. Baker Tilly Digital collaborates with Vernacare's internal ERP team to upgrade, update, and migrate processes while providing ongoing support through the IFS Support offering. With flexibility and business synchronization, Baker Tilly Digital works to move and implement businesses to IFS Cloud as a scalable, future-proof ERP system.

As an IFS Partner and 2022 IFS Regional System Integrator Partner of the Year, Baker Tilly Digital tailors each IFS Cloud implementation to the client’s industry and business transformation goals. Discover more about Baker Tilly’s IFS Cloud implementation methodology:
