LatLonGO/SAP Integration – Enabling the spatial Enterprise

We are setting the global SAP/GIS integration benchmark since 1995 building major utility systems in Australia, New Zealand and North America.  LatLonGO/SAP Spatial Enterprise Mobility can be achieved by a number of established (WorkManager/Syclo) or more advanced (Innovapptive) integration solutions.  These are NOT costly once-off “engineered services”, these are quality, low-cost, ready-made SAP/GIS integration PRODUCT SOLUTIONS.

LatLonGO-SAP-Integration

Established:

  • SAP direct through NetWeaver Gateway (on-line only)
  • LatLonGO web client embedded inside SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC), for SAP-PM Work order planning and SAP-MRS scheduling
  • LatLonGO mobile touch client embedded inside SMP3.0/Work Manager 6.1 OpenUI (sometimes connected) for Work order execution and close-out

To provide the simplest possible workflows for end users, a LatLonGO map is embedded within Work Manager.  This allows an end user to see work orders and notifications on a map, without leaving Work Manager.

The two-way LatLonGO app interface with SAP Work Manager providing spatial context to SAP-PM work orders, notifications, operations, equipment and functional location in the field and

  • efficiently install, inspect, maintain, and repair assets in the field
  • mitigate the risk of injury by helping workers complete safety checks and follow safe work practices
  • streamline processes by eliminating paper work and shortening work cycles
  • reduce maintenance costs by working to standards
  • get better visibility and improved analytics by capturing higher quality real-time data
  • keep assets running at peak performance with shorter response times and timelier maintenance
  • complete safety checks and follow safe work practices to protect employees

From within Work Manager, the user can

  • locate themselves on a map, using GPS
  • view the GIS network representation of a SAP-PM technical object on a map
  • view a work order (via linked technical object) on a map
  • view a notification (via linked technical object) on a map
  • get turn-by-turn offline directions to an object on the map
  • create redlines, linked to a notification. These can be viewed in the office later.
  • select a GIS object and create a work order or notification on that SAP technical object
  • select a GIS object and list work orders or notifications related to that technical object

The embedded LatLonGO map contains a high quality HERE base map, plus layers such as electricity or gas network that have been extracted from the utility’s GIS.  Having all this data local to the device allows the map to continue to fully function when the device is offline.  The integration is done using the OpenUI framework that is part of SMP3.0.

LatLonGO-Innovapptive-Integration

Advanced:

The embedded two-way LatLonGO/mWorkOrder functionality is identical to the SAP Work Manager integration above and can be applied to any other Innovapptive app that has a spatial context.

SAP certified, GIS agnostic, HERE based.
