IAS Human Resources Manager Ebru Aksel gave information about living in the ERP sector as well as information on working at IAS.

Ebru Aksel, IAS Human Resources Manager, shared many information about IAS projects, working at IAS, career in ERP sector and last developtments in caniasERP with the participants. Aksel gave advice to students who want to continue to their career path in ERP sector and said that "IAS has two offices in Istanbul, one in Izmir and Ankara, three in Germany, one in India and one in Dubai with total 9 offices internationally. Our company, which continues its operations abroad without slowing down, is getting ready to announce the opening of South Korea and Switzerland offices in the near future. In addition, with more than 50 business partners, more than 1000 customers and more than 30 thousand users in 30 countries in 15 languages, it continues to serve the sector with our innovative vision.”
Aksel summarizes IAS's achievements in the sector and the disciplines of the departments within the company and said “Our R&D department has come to the forefront with its projects that have helped us make great investments in the future. caniasERP is the world's first ERP program to run on the web. TROIA is also one of the first software projects supported by TUBITAK. Our R&D department, which continues its work consistently and produces projects on issues such as IoT and artificial intelligence, has finally produced IASDB, IAS's own database, so that our improvements can be built on much more solid foundations. With our new version 8.2 and our renewed Web Client project, IASDB will be available to our customers. IAS is a company that keeps up with the current industrial trends, researches, works with great care and is realist. In addition to R&D, our software development and quality control team consists of approximately 80 young and dynamic people.”
In her speech, IAS Human Resources Manager Aksel, who also mentioned about the consultancy services offered by IAS to its customers, gave recommendations to the students who plan to work in this field and listed the criteria of IAS accordingly and said “There is persistence in the nature of the ERP sector. By consulting in this field, people who will represent their companies against their customers should be open to innovations, dominate business processes, have strong communication, be patient and have long-term employees. caniasERP is a flexible and fast program that offers customers freedom of movement. Therefore, we choose our consultancy team from industrial engineers who are familiar with the business processes of companies. We are also trying to reach industrial engineers who can make software development. Because fulfilling the demands of our customers as soon as possible is very important to us. Of course, we find it difficult to find people who have achieved success in these two areas within the market. We prioritize people who are well-versed in their business processes, are interested in technology, aiming to improve themselves, learn software and are willing to understand ERP. In IAS Business Academy, we offer training to all employees who want to learn software and ERP. Working in the ERP industry is to be in a very safe area; to work in a company for years, to learn to persevere and to earn good wages in return, to have a good business life, and also to balance the private life very well. Although it is a difficult profession, it guarantees a stable and safe life. As a result, our company wants to meet and support people who develop themselves.”
