Open Text Delivers SAP xApps Certified Application

Jun 02, 2006

Open Text Corporation, a provider of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) software, has announced that it is delivering a contract management application that has received the "SAP xApps Certified--powered by SAP NetWeaver" designation.

A composite application, the Open Text Contract Management solution (version 1.0) provides role-based views into all contract documents and SAP solution-based data to help companies streamline processes, increase consistency, and enhance regulatory compliance. SAP xApps composite applications combine web services and data from multiple systems in an application design based on SAP composite tools such as the SAP Composite Application Framework (SAP CAF) within the SAP NetWeaver platform. The Open Text Contract Management solution manages contract documents across multiple departments and user roles such as sales, legal, service, and quality assurance.

The application can help companies using SAP NetWeaver Portal to automatically track and manage contracts and related documents in one packaged application that builds on their existing IT environment. Using the new contract management solution, enterprises can store and access contracts from a central location, with transparent authentication using SAP single sign-on. It also provides multiple views based on the user's role, such as account manager, internal sales support, contract administrator, or sales manager. It supports the contract management lifecycle, providing integrated functionality in the following areas: Sales, Internal Sales Support, Contracts/Legal, and Delivery.
