New module: Invensys integration links plant asset information, business financials


The Avantis unit of Invensys Process Systems announced a new business system integration module for the Avantis.PRO enterprise asset management (EAM) software application developed in conjunction with Microsoft. The module will provide standard integration between Avantis.PRO R4.1 and Microsoft Dynamics AX Release 4.0 and Microsoft Dynamics GP Professional 9.0 business management applications (formerly Microsoft Axapta and Microsoft Great Plains).

When available early in 2007, the new module "will eliminate much of the time and effort typically involved with integrating appropriate information from plant asset management systems into enterprise-level financial applications," according to the company. Avantis is currently a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner and has already created the Invensys.CM real-time equipment conditioning monitoring capability using Microsoft technologies. Neil Cooper, general manager of the Avantis unit of Invensys Process Systems said, "Our new business system integration module builds on this foundation to ensure a standard, 'out of the box' integration solution for Avantis users who also use Microsoft Dynamics."

Separately, Invensys announced enhancements to its Avantis.DSS Web-based maintenance and purchasing analytics software. Version 1.1 capabilities include: wider selection of parameters and functions that provide increased detail for analysis of progress, more options for creating personal key performance indicators (KPIs), and increased trending capabilities.
