Avient Solutions changes its brand to IBS Software Services

London, 28 Feb 2008: Avient Solutions will now be known as IBS Software Services. IBS announced the inclusion of Avient Solutions, an IBS group subsidiary, to the parent company brand. It will continue to serve as the Global Centre of Excellence for the Airline and Airport Operations line of business as well as representing all of IBS’ interests in Europe.

The name change would reinforce the single-entity status of Avient Solutions and IBS Software.It is part of the next phase in the strategic business plan that has consistently achieved increased revenue and global growth in the last ten years. This exercise will not affect the management, operations or products of Avient. All communications henceforth will bear the IBS Group name in the initiative to promote a single brand and to maximize the market leverage that can be achieved through that brand.

Peter Cefai, Executive Vice President and Head, Global Sales & Marketing, IBS and Managing Director Avient Solutions Ltd said, “Avient Solutions has enjoyed a successful four years within the IBS Group, achieving many notable successes and we are now poised to become the market leader in Airline and Airport Operations”

“This marks a significant chapter in the progress of IBS as a dynamic and ever-growing brand in the TTL domain. We have expanded our capabilities and services dramatically and this change reflects the continuing evolution in response to the needs of our internationally based customers.” said Phil Hinton, Chief Operating Officer, IBS Europe.
