Hoffman Estates, IL (PRWEB) December 4, 2009
Today, Syclo, a market leader in enterprise mobile platforms and products, announced its SMART Work Manager for use with SAP ERP application has been named a Finalist in Plant Engineering Magazine's 2009 Product of the Year Award. SMART Work Manager is built for seamless integration to SAP® ERP systems, mobilizing organizations' remote workforces and extending key SAP ERP data (such as task lists, safety histories, repair histories and bills of material) to the field.
Plant Engineering's 22nd annual Product of the Year Awards "represent the outstanding achievements in product design and innovation," says the magazine. Unlike other sponsored industry honors awarded at editors' discretion, Plant Engineering's manufacturing-based readership reviews the products nominated as Finalists; they'll vote over the next month on their preferences in 16 categories.
A result of its recent co-innovation agreement with SAP® AG, Syclo's SMART Work Manager for use with SAP ERP enables field technicians to access, transfer, complete and manage their assigned work orders and service requests from a broad range of mobile devices, regardless of connectivity. The SAP-Syclo relationship is centered around co-innovation to deliver mobile applications that give maintenance and service technicians seamless access to SAP Business Suite software.
"We're honored by the recognition from the reviewers at Plant Engineering Magazine," said Joe Granda, Syclo EVP of Marketing. "By extending the power of SAP ERP to the plant floor, SMART Work Manager helps provide manufacturing firms with the lean, efficient operations they need to maintain success in the midst of economic uncertainty."
SMART Work Manager for use with SAP ERP is the latest Syclo product to be designated a finalist or winner by Plant Engineering. SMART Task Tracker won Product of the Year in 2007, and SMART Schedule received a Finalist designation in 2005. Syclo's SMART Inventory and SMART Auditor also won Product of the Year in 2002 and 2003, respectively.
The winners of the 2009 Product of the Year awards will be presented on Monday, March 29, 2010 at the annual Manufacturing/Automation Summit, hosted by Plant Engineering, Control Engineering and Manufacturing Business Technology magazines at Chicago's Hotel Sofitel from March 28-30.
"Innovation had an outstanding year, as represented by all of the Product of the Year finalists," said Plant Engineering editor Bob Vavra. "Plant managers need to look at these products to find the best solutions to operate their plants smarter, safer and more efficiently."
