Daptiv Adds Pre-Configured ERP Connectors to Daptiv™ Connect Integration Offerings

ERP Integration With Leading On-Demand PPM Solution Improves Financial Management and Insight by Streamlining Business Processes

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) -  Daptiv, the on-demand leader in project management and collaborative business software, today announced the addition of pre-configured ERP connectors to its host of standard Daptiv Connect™ integrations. Daptiv will now offer a new set of ERP connectors to enable better financial management and control for invoicing, chargeback and payroll business processes. The new connectors make it easy to integrate Daptiv's on-demand project and portfolio management (PPM) solutions with ERP functions to give customers greater financial insight, management and control.

"We established Daptiv Connect to make it quick and painless for customers to integrate our Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) project management software with other enterprise applications, whether on-premise or on-demand," said Mark Klebanoff, chief executive officer at Daptiv. "Together with Daptiv professional services, the Daptiv Connect program and its line-up of more than 150 connectors is a turnkey, one-stop integration service. This latest addition of pre-configured ERP connectors enables businesses to cut costs and implement more efficient financial business processes to give a single view of project costs."

Daptiv Connect offers customers the capability to pair the leading SaaS-based PPM solution with many major ERP and CRM packages, as well as other data types such as application development environments, legacy systems and more. Daptiv Connect ERP integration connectors are available for SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics GP and NetSuite, among others, and can be implemented in as few as three days with an average implementation in less than 30 days.

"Sisters of Mercy needed a PPM solution that would give it better visibility into resource allocation and financial project metrics," said Jay Carter, manager -- projects at Sisters of Mercy Health System. "Daptiv PPM easily molded to our existing processes and Daptiv Connect provided a quick, easy integration with our existing enterprise systems so we could get better insight into our project execution."

"Until recently, enterprises seeking enhanced integration capability had few alternatives to implementing software on-premise for application, process and data integration," according to an independent May 2010 Forrester Research, Inc. report, It's Time To Tame The ERP Integration Beast. "SaaS-based integration has significantly different implementation and operational attributes compared with on-premise integration, but when the economics are right, its greater flexibility and speed of implementation make it a good choice for meeting enterprise integration needs."

Daptiv Connect now includes two new pre-configured connectors. ERP Timesheet Connect enables timesheet data to be exchanged between Daptiv PPM and an ERP system, while ERP Invoice Connect enables the same capability for invoice data.

ERP Timesheet Connect enables organizations to:

  • Drive internal "funding" of projects by implementing an automated chargeback process
  • Apply project expenses to internal cost centers
  • Enable streamlined, efficient management of payroll processes

ERP Invoice Connect enables organizations to:

  • Ensure complete and accurate financial reporting by integrating with financial systems of record
  • Avoid double data entry and streamline invoice reconciliation
  • Improve financial management and insight with rich Work Intelligence™ reports based on timely project financials

The new connectors are priced at a flat rate including setup and first-year subscription, as well as support and maintenance.
