About Us
Our Story
Hoist's co-founders and 160+ team members across the globe have a long history with IFS. Our resources are comprised of a combination of previous IFS customers and IFS employees. One thing companies looking to work with Hoist can be very confident of is… ‘we get it’!

The majority of our senior team has had hands-on experience with the product either through use or deployment. We know what delivering exceptional service looks like, and through the use of standard methodologies, we deliver a consistent and concise product, from implementation projects to support offerings. Our cross functional teams service a diverse portfolio of industries – all of the core industries traditionally targeted by IFS.

Hoist has a strong belief in IFS's capabilities and vision, and our focus and growth has come from successfully helping customers maximize their investment and realize value in their business. To do this we have created a highly skilled team, and through multi-region and multi-language approaches, Hoist has become a Global Systems Integrator of IFS. In addition to our strong presence in Canada and the US, we have offices in UK, Dubai, Colombia, Brazil, and Sri Lanka.

We can deliver projects fluently in many languages including English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Sinhala, and Arabic.
