LabVantage has announced an enhancement of the certified integration between its Sapphire Laboratory Information Management Suite (LIMS) and the SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) application.
In February 2007, LabVantage announced that LabVantage Sapphire 4 had achieved certification as powered by SAP NetWeaver. With the recent release of LabVantage Sapphire R5, LabVantage continues to safeguard the integration between the current version of its solution with SAP ERP. This certified integration enables the exchange of information between the SAP ERP application and LabVantage Sapphire R5, leveraging the capabilities of the SAP NetWeaver Process Integration (SAP NetWeaver PI) offering Release 7.0 and LabVantage Sapphire Enterprise Connector (SEC).
SEC, an embedded component of LabVantage Sapphire, facilitates tailored, bi-directional data flow between LabVantage Sapphire and SAP ERP. LabVantage Sapphire integrates a configurable-off-the-shelf, pure thin-client solution for raw materials testing and management, quality control (QC), and quality assurance (QA), within the manufacturing, quality, compliance, and operations business environments.
