Sydney, Australia - Citect's Ampla MES Solution has been recognized by SAP with an award for Best New Application Ported to SAP NetWeaver (ANZ) and Powered by NetWeaver ISV at the recent SAP Asia Pacific FKOM & Partner Congress '07 in Hong Kong. Citect was also an exhibitor at the event that hosted over 1800 SAP partners and SAP teams from all over the world.
The SAP award marks an important step in Citect's relationship with SAP. Its Ampla MES solution became NetWeaver-certified in 2006 and has been successful in reducing the cost of plant to business interoperability, while at the same time enabling Ampla's key production information to be displayed inside the SAP Enterprise Portal.
Ampla is a highly scalable MES solution that drives the effective planning, operation and improvement of production operations. Supporting continuous improvement methodologies like Lean and Six Sigma and integrating with plant and business systems, Ampla delivers fast ROI and sustainable plant performance improvements.
"Citect is very honored to receive this award. 'Islands of automation' are quickly and rightly disappearing. Financial systems, control systems and operational management systems are being connected so that everyone in a company has 'one view of the truth.' We see tremendous value for Citect and SAP's joint customers in developing customer-centric solutions based on the NetWeaver platform," commented Colette Munro, Citect's Global Director, Ampla.
"Congratulations to Citect on winning the Best New Application Ported to SAP NetWeaver for ANZ award," said Alan Hyde, CEO & Managing Director SAP ANZ. "Citect's Ampla MES is an excellent fit with SAP's leadership in ERP in the mining and minerals processing space."
