Contracts cover business integration software and services
Atlanta — August 2, 2006 — SEEBURGER Inc. today announced an 80 percent increase in North American revenues and a 50 percent increase in international sales of its business integration software and services during the first half of 2006 compared to the same period last year.
The company said that the growth is being spurred by companies that are adopting SEEBURGER solutions to replace their legacy business integration systems in order to gain advanced functionality, improved integration with their enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, and/or the ability to standardize on a single business integration platform across the world.
New U.S. customers over the last two quarters include Anadarko Petroleum, Johnson & Johnson, and Siemens Power & Generation. New international customers include Pepsico Europe, Federal Mogul Europe, SCA Nordic and Unilever NL.
Also during the first half, SEEBURGER expanded its managed services offering and saw growth in its SAP XI consulting business. SEEBURGER Managed Services enables customers to outsource trading partner management and other business-to-business functions to eliminate the costs of installing and maintaining e-commerce services in-house. The company's SAP XI consulting services assist SAP customers in evaluating and implementing the SAP Exchange Infrastructure (SAP XI) component of the SAP NetWeaver platform.
Other achievements during the first two quarters included product upgrades such as enhanced ERP integration for Oracle, PeopleSoft, JDE, IFS and SSA Global, enhancements in real-time parts inventory visibility for SEEBURGER Inventory Monitor, and an industry-first tool for SEEBURGER's RFID Gateway that promises to save millions of dollars for consumer product goods manufacturers by preventing inaccurate shipments that trigger retailer charge backs.
"Our performance during the first two quarters reflects our ongoing investment in product enhancements, our extensive focus on business integration, and a desire by major corporations to partner with a stable business integration vendor during a time of upheaval in the market," said Scott Lewin, president of SEEBURGER US. "SEEBURGER's stability, product strengths and 20-year expertise in business integration continue to attract companies that require reliable EDI and B2B systems to keep their operations running on a daily basis."
