Pipeline Software Completes Successful SAP-Primavera Integration at The High Companies
Pipeline Software Inc., the SAP Integration Experts(TM), today announced the completion of the successful integration of SAP Project Systems (PS) and SAP Production Planning (PP) with Primavera P3e at the High(R) Companies. Using its Pipeline Transporter(TM) for SAP Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solution, Pipeline Software demonstrated its ability to provide a comprehensive solution to enable full construction life-cycle management.
Based in Lancaster, Pa., The High Companies are leaders in the design engineering of steel superstructures and pre-stressed concrete building systems, and a major force in the American steel fabrication business, having fabricated more than 6,000 bridges since 1980.
"Our objective with the Pipeline Software solution was to integrate SAP and Primavera so we could streamline the key business processes that improve the quality of the solutions we deliver to our customers and the speed at which we deliver them. The first implementation with our steel business has been very successful and we expect to roll the Pipeline solution out to other business units later this year," said Bob Widdowson of The High Companies. "We have been very pleased with the product's performance and flexibility, and the skill of Pipeline Software's team."
"The High Companies are a key engineering and construction customer with a vision to implement seamless cross-system business processes for the benefit of their customers," said Charlie Sundling, chief executive officer, Pipeline Software. "We are thrilled that they recognized Pipeline Software as a partner that could help them achieve their goals. We are confident that our solution will help them achieve their goals to keep projects on track, avoid late starts and unbalanced backlogs, and better manage resources, activities and materials."
SAP's Enterprise Asset Management (SAP EAM) solution helps companies in asset-intensive industries reduce operating costs, better manage capital expenditures, and improve plant utilization. Its core modules include Plant Maintenance (PM), Materials Management (MM) and Project System (PS) modules.
Pipeline Transporter for SAP EAM substantially extends the core API functionality available for SAP EAM modules enabling organizations to rapidly develop integration solutions for SAP EAM modules. Additionally, Pipeline Software also offers prepackaged solutions called Transporter iPacks (integration packages) for commonly integrated best-in-class applications. In the case of High Companies, Pipeline Software provided its iPack for Primavera-SAP/PS, which offers hundreds of predefined data flows and transformations dramatically the time, costs and risks involved in implementing an integration solution.
