Erie Power Technologies, Inc., wanting to increase their competitiveness by improving their information and technology infrastructure, needed to develop a "virtual office" that would manage their full supply chain and collaborative product information exchange.
To succeed in today's information-intensive economy, global companies need rapid, meaningful and actionable insight into their projects and extended enterprise activities. Only with insight can they execute appropriate strategies smarter and faster to compete successfully in increasing complex business markets.
Erie Power Technologies, Inc., wanting to increase their competitiveness by improving their information and technology infrastructure, needed to develop a "virtual office" that would manage their full supply chain and collaborative product information exchange. Based in the USA, Erie Power works with supplies from all around the world. Managing their tasks and deliverables was a major challenge.
The solutions to their needs was a fully integrated web environment for product development, manufacturing and distribution, using proven project management skills and disciplines.
Working with SAR Associates, an eTimeMachine Inc. reseller and consulting partner headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Erie Power scoped a complete Project Management Solution specification to empower the organization to implement its "virtual office" environment. eTimeMachine.com Inc. makes world-class software, offering resourc and work management solutions and integration capabilities across a wide range of third party best-of-breed products.
Since Erie Power's business decision was to select best-of-breed software, this led to a requirement of integrating those applications. eTimeMachine's Integrator™ is the seamless integration tool connecting eTimeMachine Enterprise™, Oracle Applications, Primavera Enterprise and SmarTeam applications.
Two of the major components of the Erie Power solution were the eTimeMachine employee portal Workspace™ and the eTimeMachine Integrator™. eTimeMachine Workspace provides the means for employees to get their assignments from Primavera Enterprise in real time; report time, expense and progress data; pass it back to Primavera Enterprise; pass it to their Oracle Applications suite and finally, to their payroll system. eTimeMachine Integrator is an integration tool that facilitates the link between Oracle Projects Accounting and Primavera Enterprise.
