Easy-to-Integrate Toolset Democratizes Connectivity
Between Manufacturing and the Enterprise
EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. (June 18, 2020) — Sepasoft® has launched the Sepasoft Business Connector and Interface for SAP® ERP, a new suite of modules for connecting Ignition by Inductive Automation® to business systems like SAP® ERP. Connecting the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) layers of manufacturing operations, the Sepasoft Business Connector provides intuitive drag-and-drop interfaces for developing business logic, transforming data, and mapping data between Ignition® and other systems.
As companies strive to achieve operational excellence in today’s fast-paced, global market environment, enabling interoperability between business and manufacturing systems is critical for success. The Sepasoft Business Connector can help companies optimize plant operations and improve profitability by driving increased operational efficiency, faster responsiveness to changing customer demands, and tighter inventory control—value-added results that enable a sustainable competitive advantage.
Ignition by Inductive Automation® is an industrial application platform with tools for building solutions in human-machine interface (HMI), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). Ignition® is used in virtually every industry, in more than 100 countries. When combined with the MES module suite from Sepasoft®, including the Sepasoft Business Connector, Ignition® becomes a first-class MES and connectivity platform for the enterprise.
To ensure that the new product suite would present a uniquely valuable offering and adhere to industry best practices, Sepasoft® teamed up with 4IR Solutions due to their deep expertise in enterprise and SAP® integration. “The Sepasoft Business Connector offers increased flexibility and substantial cost savings versus existing solutions. When factoring in licensing, maintenance, training, engineering, and support, customers can expect to pay an order of magnitude less compared to leveraging other middleware or developing custom solutions,” said Joseph Dolivo, Principal of Digital Transformation at 4IR Solutions.
“The Sepasoft Business Connector will allow our customers to improve their operations while reducing their costs,” said Keith Adair, Product Manager at Sepasoft®. “The Sepasoft Business Connector can link directly to SAP® via the Interface for SAP® ERP module and provides built-in templates for common data exchange scenarios. With the addition of our Web Services module, the Sepasoft Business Connector can communicate with other ERP and business systems that support SOAP and RESTful endpoints.”
“We’re very excited to welcome a native SAP® connector and business connectivity tool to the Ignition ecosystem,” said Don Pearson, Chief Strategy Officer for Inductive Automation®. “As an integrated part of the Ignition® platform, the Sepasoft Business Connector supports familiar idioms like drag-and-drop, tag binding, and scripting, while requiring minimal configuration of third-party systems.”
Sepasoft® provides a modular approach to building Enterprise-Class MES solutions using OEE, Track & Trace, SPC, and Recipe & Changeover Modules. The result is a custom solution tailored for your manufacturing needs that integrates nicely with your ERP, Inventory Management, and Asset Management Systems.
