Did you know that approximately 30% of the time and effort spent on an average implementation project is spent on integration? Of course, not every ServiceMax implementation calls for system integration, but if required, it can be a huge burden for IT organizations. Integration is even more rigorous when multiple back-end systems and global roll-outs are involved. Of course, deploying middleware for your project is a good option to comply with corporate standards, assist with data mapping, perform data transformations and automate the entire process. But, for many who may only need to integrate a couple of processes like work order billing, the costs of middleware may outweigh the benefits.
At ServiceMax, we want to make integrating to backend systems like SAP ERP and Quickbooks more accessible and less time consuming for our customers. Last year, we introduced our ServiceMax Linx series of product-based integrations. Now, you can quickly integrate ServiceMax to Quickbooks for timely, automated billing.
This year, we’re taking another step toward simplifying integration with our first technical guide on ServiceMax integration. Along with other guides to be published in the upcoming months, ServiceMax Integration to SAP, provides technical details on common integration scenarios including, interfaces and table-by-table field mappings. The guide can assist in launching your ServiceMax to SAP integration project with or without a middleware option and makes for a good start to other process documentation you will need during your project.
We’re looking forward to bringing you more guides like this one, so if you have a request for a specific end-point document -- let us know! And if you’re not in IT, but know your organization can benefit from connecting ServiceMax to your SAP system, download it and pass it along.
Yes, there is. We are in the middle of that now, so please stay tuned. Also, let us know which integration scenarios you are most interested in.
Here are some scenarios I would be interested
-Best practices on integrating Pricebooks From Oracle -> ServiceMax. I noticed most customers who integrate with an ERP system do not use the ServiceMax Pricebooks (including applicable products) due to the complications of integration. Any suggestions here would be helpful.
-Contracts . Same scenario, it seems many customers who integrate contracts lose out on some of the great ServiceMax contracts functionality. Any best practices on integrated the critical aspects of contracts in ServiceMax would be helpful (Included Services, PM Schedules, etc.)
-Integration of Financial data back down to Oracle for invoicing.
Outside of Oracle Integration, best practices on GPS integration would be great. Having a real-time view on the dispatch console where technicians are located is very helpful.
I also have the same questions on Oracle/ServiceMax integration best practices, this would be VERY helpful for us.
