LabVantage today announced that its LabVantage SAPPHIRE Laboratory Information Management Suite (LIMS) has enhanced its certified integration with the SAP® 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) with the business environment around manufacturing, quality, compliance, and operations.

“For many manufacturers with both SAP solutions and LIMS, they need to maintain automated, real-time monitoring of product and quality information at both the enterprise and laboratory-level,” explains Jim Aurelio, CEO & President of LabVantage. “By eliminating redundant data and processes, LabVantage SAPPHIRE helps address the needs and reduce the costs of leading manufacturers. Integrated with SAP solutions, LabVantage SAPPHIRE extends laboratory data into enterprise-wide operational processes, realizing a truly consolidated quality and materials management environment.”

The SAP NetWeaver technology platform powers the SAP Business Suite family of applications and solutions such as LabVantage SAPPHIRE. SAP NetWeaver unifies integration technologies into a single platform and is pre-integrated with business applications, enabling change and reducing the need for custom integration. The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that the exchange infrastructure content “Package for LabVantage SAPPHIRE Enterprise Connector R5” for the product LabVantage SAPPHIRE R5 integrates with SAP NetWeaver PI 7.0 via the SAP integration scenario SAP NetWeaver – Exchange Infrastructure Content 3.0 (NW-XI-CNT).
