Delivers integration across all Mincom solutions, as well as out-of-the-box integration to other leading ERP platforms, giving asset-intensive businesses industry-leading choice and flexibility
BRISBANE, Australia — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 27, 2010 — Mincom, a leading global provider of software and services for asset-intensive industries, today announced an open, standards-based platform which, for the first time, offers seamless integration across all Mincom solutions, as well as out-of-the-box integration to other leading ERP platforms. One of the core components of the new Mincom Ellipse 8 EAM solution (see today’s announcement), the Mincom Integration Platform provides businesses in asset-heavy industries – such as mining, defense, energy, public infrastructure and transit – with the ultimate choice and flexibility in the way they use and integrate Mincom solutions.
“All industry-leading organizations well understand the benefits of open software interfaces that are based on well-recognized standards. It leads to easier integration, lower cost, and more choices in software and services across the board. This is particularly important for ERP and EAM business applications,” said Greg Clark, CEO of Mincom. “Through the Mincom Integration Platform, we are able to offer a truly open, scalable, standards-based business process integration approach to ensure asset-intensive businesses can exploit the benefits of processes and information that span packaged application boundaries. This new technology from Mincom provides businesses with the flexibility to select the best applications for a specific requirement.”
Added Clark, “Furthermore, open and standards-based integration tools provide our customers with many choices in service providers. For example, a business may decide to implement SAP or Oracle ERP to support business functions such as finance and HR, while taking advantage of the rich functionality offered by Mincom Ellipse 8 for asset and work management.”
“The Mincom Integration Platform also opens up the possibility for integration with customers, suppliers, contractors and other trading partners, allowing businesses to automatically send and receive orders or payments, and collaborate in a networked environment,” concludes Clark.
