Beamex Business Bridge is a standardised but configurable software solution for connecting Beamex CMX calibration management system to an ERP/CMMS system.
Integration of independent IT systems is a requirement in almost any business these days, but system integration projects are considered costly and risky, creating challenges in terms of budgets, timetables, specifications and scope of work while also producing difficulties in system maintenance of the finished, highly customised integration solution. Beamex Business Bridge has been introduced to minimise these system integration risks.
Mr Pekka Videnoja, Product Owner of the Beamex Business Bridge solution explains that many of the common system integration risks relate to the fact that system integration typically requires software development, customisation or configuration on both ends of the integrated system, the calibration software and the ERP/CMMS system.
The Business Bridge aims to minimise these system integration risks by offering a solution where the integration part related to the calibration software is based on a standardised, but still configurable solution, which offers several benefits including less customer-specific software development work for the system integration project, resulting in quicker and more reliable delivery.
A standardised solution also means availability of long-term software maintenance contracts with regular software updates for software evolution and helpdesk services. Availability of long-term support contracts also decreases IT system lifecycle risks.
The Business Bridge is therefore a safe, less risky and future-proof solution for integrating the calibration system with an ERP/CMMS system, enabling quick and accurate implementation of the integration project.
The main purpose of the Business Bridge software solution is to provide a transfer channel for sharing instrument, work order and basic calibration data between the calibration management and ERP/CMMS systems. System integration itself is beneficial in several ways including significant rise in productivity as data needs to be entered and kept up to date in one place only, as well as minimised human typing errors and delays related to manual re-keying of data since data needs to be entered only once.
The Business Bridge solution is available for integrating Beamex CMX calibration software with several of the leading ERP/CMMS systems used in the processing industry.
