HAI, the supplier of manufacture-optimizing applications, is strengthening its market standing thanks to its cooperation with BCC. The aim of the project is developing the HAI solutions in the SAP NetWeaver technology and having them certified by SAP AG.
The clients of the Dutch company HAI are international and Dutch industrial companies aiming at optimizing manufacturing processes. The application HAI*QPM (Quality & Performance Management) offered by HAI helps to improve the efficiency of production lines on the basis of regular monitoring and data reporting in real time.
Cooperation between HAI and BCC is aimed at better adjusting the Dutch company’s offer to the needs of those clients that expect full integration of the QPM solution with the SAP ERP system (the production module).
‘We have decided to commission BCC creating the QPM application in a completely new technology, namely SAP NetWeaver, with the use of Java and the WebDynpro technology. We also entrusted BCC with preparing our solutions to be certified by SAP AG’, says Peter de Haer, HAI director.
With this view BCC prepared the QPM application and all its documentation according to SAP AG standards. The certificate ‘Powered by SAP NetWeaver’ is granted by SAP AG only to top-class applications complementary to SAP solutions and based on the SAP NetWeaver technology.
In July 2007 and January 2008 certification sessions were held; BCC presented the process of installation and starting the QPM application and test scripts to show its functions and integration with the SAP NetWeaver Portal. HAI received two certificates from SAP AG:
- J2EE-DEP certificate, which ensures that the solution installs and works on the SAP NetWeaver Web Application Server Java,
- EP-BP certificate, which confirms that the solution integrating their application correctly integrates with the SAP NetWeaver Portal.
This way HAI has an open door to obtain the right to use the logo of the program ‘Powered By NetWeaver’ in a promotion of the QPM solution.
For years BCC has been developing a strong competence center in SAP NetWeaver technology and has been involved in knowledge transfer concerning those solutions on the portal of the worldwide SDN community (SAP Developer Network). On the forum BCC maintains the position of the most active company from Central-Eastern Europe. Moreover, BCC has the status of SAP NetWeaver Partner Expert, granted in 2004 by SAP. Besides Poland-based companies BCC has supported projects with the use of SAP NetWeaver for firms from the United States, Ireland and Finland.
