Pipeline Software Announces New Release of Pipeline Transporter

Pipeline Transporter 4.0 Release Enhances Performance and Builds on Ease of Integration Between SAP EAM Modules (Including PS, PM, and PP) and Third-Party Applications

SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwire - October 21, 2007) - Pipeline Software Inc., the SAP Integration Experts™, announces immediate release of the new 4.0 version of its Pipeline Transporter product.

"We listened to our customers and dedicated a tremendous amount of research and development effort into this release of the product toward the features they were asking for, primarily in the areas of performance and ease of deployment," said Raju Patel, chief technology officer, Pipeline Software. "Our Pipeline Transporter product and SAP-specific skills allow us to solve the most challenging SAP connectivity and cross-system integration problems imaginable."

Pipeline Transporter substantially extends the core SAP API functionality available for Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) modules, such as Project System (PS) and Plant Maintenance (PM), enabling organizations to reduce dramatically the cost and time required to connect third-party applications to SAP while increasing interface reliability and supportability. Pipeline Software also offers prepackaged solutions, called Transporter iPacks (integration packages), which plug into Pipeline Transporter to provide turnkey integration for commonly integrated applications. For example, the Transporter iPack for Primavera-SAP/PM provides more than 100 out-of-the-box field mappings and transformation rules for integration between SAP and Primavera's core project management software (P3e, P5, P6). The combination of Pipeline Software's expertise in SAP modules and Pipeline Transporter's integration capabilities helps companies resolve their most difficult cross-system integration challenges.

The 4.0 release of Pipeline Transporter includes some of the following features & improvements:

--  Pluggable Java transport scenario architecture for simplified
    customization
--  20 percent performance improvement over the already fast Pipeline
    Transporter v3.0
--  Complete scheduling capability with e-mail notifications
--  "Smart Batching" tuned to optimize SAP BAPI engine
--  25 new SAP EAM-focused BAPI methods
--  Multilevel security and configuration capability
--  New Web administration console user interface
    

"The new release of Pipeline Transporter was built on the premise of seamless business process integration, rapid installation and high performance," said Charlie Sundling, chief executive officer, Pipeline Software. "The fact is that our solution can be deployed in a matter of days instead of months and is a fraction of the cost of competitive solutions. Once installed our performance is unmatched. Pipeline Transporter 4.0 actually delivers on the coveted 'better, faster, cheaper' value proposition. This domain-focused solution is vital to our customers with plant and asset-intensive operations, such as those in the oil and gas, utilities, nuclear and engineering-construction sectors."
