PIETARSAARI, Finland, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Integration of various independent IT systems is a requirement in almost any business these days, but many times system integration projects are considered costly and risky, as staying within the original project budget and timetable can be a challenge, specifications and scope of work keep changing constantly during the project and system maintenance of a finished, highly customized integration solution turns out to be difficult and expensive. Beamex minimizes these system integration risks by introducing the Business Bridge - a standardized, but configurable software solution for connecting Beamex CMX calibration management system to an ERP/CMMS system.
Mr. Pekka Videnoja, Product Owner of the Beamex Business Bridge solution explains, "Many of the common system integration risks relate to the fact that system integration typically requires software development, customization or configuration on both ends of the integrated system, the calibration software and the ERP/CMMS system. We are aiming to minimize these system integration risks by offering a solution where the integration part related to the calibration software is based on a standardized, but still configurable solution". Having a standardized integration solution brings many benefits. Due to a standardized solution, a system integration project requires less customer-specific software development work. This means quicker and more reliable delivery. A standardized solution also means availability of long-term software maintenance contracts with regular software updates for software evolution and helpdesk services. Availability of long-term support contracts also decreases IT system lifecycle risks. The Business Bridge is therefore a safe, less risky and future-proof solution for integrating calibration system with an ERP/CMMS system and the integration project can implemented more quickly and accurately.
The main purpose of the Business Bridge software solution is to provide a transfer channel for sharing instrument, work order and basic calibration data between the calibration management and ERP/CMMS systems. System integration itself is beneficial in several ways. Firstly, productivity may increase significantly due to system integration, as data needs to be entered and kept up to date in one place only, instead of manually re-keying the data into two or more separate systems. Secondly, because data needs to be entered only once, human typing errors and delays related to manual re-keying of data are minimized.
BEAMEX is a leading, worldwide provider of integrated calibration solutions that meet even the most demanding requirements of process instrumentation.
