AURA’s Launcher Certified on SAP
October 8, 2013 Alex Woodie
Launcher/i is the latest version of AURA’s document management software for IBM i. The software takes spool file output from business applications and applies templates to it, for the purpose of extracting specific data from it or adding graphical elements, such as company logos or barcodes. The software also enables customers to distribute it via email or fax; convert it into Office, PDF, or HTML formats; or print out a hard copy.
In July, AURA announced that Launcher/i version 2.6 has been certified to work with SAP’s core ERP component. When hooked up to SAP ERP, Launcher/i can take the document output from the SAP environment and perform various actions upon it, including extraction, filtering, organizing, editing, customizing, and routing of the SAP-generated data.
The certified integration should give SAP customers the peace of mind of knowing that, when Launcher/i extracts data from an SAP ERP environment and re-purposes it for consumption, that it does so while abiding by SAP security rules.
Wassel Guerbaa, vice president of products at AURA Equipements, says the certification with the German software giant gives his product a big boost.
“For our offering to gain significant momentum in French and international markets, it was essential for us to find a partner of the caliber of SAP and to consistently develop solutions that integrate with SAP software,’ Guerbaa states in a press release. “The ability of Launcher/i to leverage the information provided by solutions from SAP and other vendors will prove highly beneficial to current and future customers.”
