BCC has integrated solutions of US-based PROS, the world’s leader in pricing and revenue optimization science and software for manufacturing, distribution, services, hotel/cruise and airlines. BCC prepared an SAP NetWeaver-based solution that will facilitate integrating PROS products with customers’ SAP systems.
Based in Houston, Texas, PROS replaces the destructive pricing practices of “Cost Plus” and “Match the Competition” with Pricing Excellence best practices and optimized prices. PROS stops price-based profit leaks by finding negative pocket margin customers and products, generating millions of dollars of improved operating profits.
PROS searched for an implementation partner with excellent competence in SAP integration solutions. ”When enhancing integration capabilities of the PROS Pricing Solution Suite, we decided to leverage BCC’s experience and technical SAP expertise. BCC offered outstanding technical knowledge in SAP functional modules and XI technology”, said Andy Dysart, Sr. Software Architect at PROS.
For years, BCC has been developing a strong competence center in SAP NetWeaver technology and has been involved in exchanging knowledge of those solutions on an SDN (SAP Developer Network) global community portal. BCC has been the most active company from Central Eastern Europe. Moreover, BCC has been designated as an SAP NetWeaver Expert Partner since 2004.
Efficient use of PROS Pricing Solution application requires close integration with an ERP system. For many customers of PROS this system is SAP.
The BCC-supported project, started in 2007, resulted in preparing an out-of-the-box integration solution based on the SAP NetWeaver platform, including SAP XI (SAP Exchange Infrastructure) technology and SAP NetWeaver Portal. The new solution allows PROS customers a faster and more effectively integration of the PROS Pricing Solution within their SAP infrastructure. BCC supported PROS in the certification process of this solution with SAP AG by preparing the integration content package and its documentation as required by SAP.
“Collaboration with BCC has allowed us to offer a well defined integration approach for SAP. It has provided a better integration approach when deploying with SAP. Reducing integration efforts allows our customers to obtain the value of the PROS Pricing Solution Suite earlier. We believe that investing in our integration capabilities with SAP and obtaining the NetWeaver XI Content certificate will strengthen our position among SAP-run businesses”, said Oscar Moreno, Vice President – Software Development at PROS.
