Zontec SPC Achieves Certified Integration With SAP Applications

SAP certification signifies that Synergy 3000 has been developed and tested in accordance with strict guidelines for best-built applications that integrate with SAP.

(Zontec: Cincinnati) -- Zontec Inc., the international developer of statistical process control (SPC) software solutions, announced that its Synergy 3000T v. 3.0 enterprise SPC software has achieved certified integration with SAP Business Suite software. SAP is the world’s largest business software company.

SAP certification signifies that Synergy 3000 has been developed and tested in accordance with strict guidelines for best-built applications that integrate with SAP. According to the SAP Integration and Certification Center, Synergy 3000 is able to successfully exchange critical data with instances of SAP ERP application v. 6.0.

Now SAP software users can complement their quality management activities with Zontec’s production floor-based SPC functions for real-time data collection, process monitoring, alarms, charting, lot traceability, analysis, and reporting for all critical quality characteristics. To achieve the certified status, Zontec designed a software interface to ensure compatibility with SAP quality planning, quality inspection, quality certification, quality notification, and quality control components, among others. Zontec’s solution enables manufacturers to improve quality, raise customer compliance, and lower costs through timely detection, troubleshooting, and resolution of quality issues.

“More and more Zontec customers are also implementing SAP software to run their businesses,” notes Zontec president, Warren Ha. “Integration with SAP Business Suite is a key element of our strategic plan to align closely with preeminent and complementary software providers. Through this integration, we hope to make manufacturers much more competitive and profitable by allowing them to repond to process variation the precise moment it occurs.”

In 2006, Synergy 3000 became the first SPC software designed from the ground up using Microsoft .NET as the blueprint and tool set for the next generation of quality management applications being dictated by the connected business world. The Synergy 3000 architecture gives organizations the flexibility and scalability they need to deploy the system across Windows networks, web browsers, and mobile devices. It supports connectivity among multiple manufacturing facilities, suppliers, and encourages optimum collaboration and process management in the quest for flawless quality across the global supply chain.
