InfinityQS Enterprise Service Importer Attains Powered by SAP NetWeaver Status
Chantilly, VA - March 18, 2008 - InfinityQS® International, the leading provider of real-time Statistical Process Control (SPC) software, today announced that its Enterprise Service Importer (ESI) 1.0 has attained "Powered by SAP NetWeaver" status for its integration capabilities between the ProFicient™ database and the SAP NetWeaver platform. ESI 1.0 is an import utility that makes SAP data available to ProFicient software users for real-time quality control on the production floor.
By attaining this Powered by SAP NetWeaver certification, InfinityQS ESI further increases the value of users' SAP® solution-based systems by assimilating the software enterprise to quality control applications on the shop floor. InfinityQS applications allow manufacturers to further leverage their investments in SAP NetWeaver in a way that simplifies and enhances the real-time visibility and reach of quality data.
During the certification process, InfinityQS developed an enterprise services-specific interface between the material inspection processing component of the SAP ERP 6.0 application and InfinityQS ESI 1.0. ESI 1.0 creates a line of communication through SAP NetWeaver that allows queries to be sent as Web services. This utility also allows Part, Test and Specification Limit data values to import from SAP ERP 6.0. Additionally, SAP Inspection Lot Numbers can be directly imported into the ProFicient Job table in the database. ESI 1.0 then links the appropriate Job to each Specification Limit record.
"InfinityQS is committed to providing manufacturers with flexible, high-quality solutions that help ensure broad integration through the enterprise," said Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO of InfinityQS International. "We developed ESI 1.0 as a response to our clients' need for improved scalability and integration. The Powered by SAP NetWeaver certification confirms that our software can communicate with the ERP system that many of our clients are using."
Achieving Powered by SAP NetWeaver status coincides with the expansion of InfinityQS' product catalogue to include automated services that support its real-time SPC applications. The latest release of ProFicient software allows users to upgrade their operations with OPC data Collection Service, Remote Alarm Monitor Service (RAMS), Remote Event Monitor Service (REMS) and Quality Monitor.
The SAP NetWeaver platform powers the SAP Business Suite and solutions such as InfinityQS ESI from InfinityQS. SAP NetWeaver unifies integration technologies into a single platform and is pre-integrated with business applications, enabling change and reducing the need for custom integration.
