Synactive´s GuiXT Liquid UI for iOS Provides Immediate, Robust, and Secure Mobile Connectivity to SAP® ERP

New app empowers and mobilizes your workforce on SAP ERP today

Foster City, California — Oct. 15, 2012Synactive, Inc., a leading developer of solutions in support of SAP® applications, today announced its newest mobile product, GuiXT Liquid UI for iOS. This new app, offered in support of the SAP ERP application, gives users a complete, mobile, task-specific experience tightly integrated with their iOS devices.

"The iOS demands a different UI, and today´s mobile workers need to be productive wherever they are," said Thomas Ewe, CEO and founder of Synactive, Inc. "Liquid UI for iOS is a powerful client for connecting to SAP ERP directly and immediately. Coupled with our extensive experience in transforming transactions, our second-generation iOS app—in support of SAP ERP—for mobilizing your workforce is accomplished without the need for redevelopment. Existing transactions can be easily and economically extended to work on all iOS devices."

Thanks to Synactive´s 14 years of knowledge of SAP user interfaces, Liquid UI for iOS connects to SAP ERP via highly efficient native protocols, without the need for webservers, ITS, or the Sybase® Unwired Platform. Patent-pending technologies regulate the connection to provide seamless connectivity even when work is interrupted by a phone call. Transactions can be tailored according to user role, simplified for the iOS screen size, and are protected by the same SAP credentials as working on a desktop. Liquid UI for iOS supports all crucial features of the SAP GUI, including workflow integration, F4 search help, application toolbars, and menus, as well as multi-sessions through a single connection.

"Users need to manage processes and transactions across all touch points," said Harry Van Wickle, executive vice president of operations at Synactive, "Liquid UI for iOS Professional and Enterprise Editions enable companies to extend SAP ERP mobile connectivity to iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch,as well as leverage device-specific features, such as the camera for barcode scanning."

Synactive´s simple scripting platform lets companies customize the SAP ERP user interface for iOS devices by consolidating and simplifying the Dynpro development environment, tabs, and transactions—without complicated programming or modifying the backend configuration, security, and business logic. Combined with Synactive´s new GuiXT 3.0 Server, users can access identical or simplified SAP business-application screens across every touch point, including the desktop, browsers, smart phones, tablets, and handheld scanners.

To ensure a robust enterprise experience, Synactive has flagship customers in several industries, including retail, pharmaceutical, industrial components, and consumer technology. The companies have added Liquid UI for iOS to their GuiXT implementations to provide feedback that will further enhance the product. Responses have been overwhelmingly positive; these customershave been able to get several business processes online with no development at all, such as PM Notifications and Order creation and modifications (IW2x and IW3x), Displaying Equipment (IE03), Issue Goods (MB1A), and Purchase Requisition Release (ME54N). Often times, they are up and running within a day.

"We´re excited to offer our customersthe advantageof extending GuiXT Solutions to their iOS devices," said Ewe. "The user experience, speed, and cost-effectiveness of Synactive´s GuiXT technology offer features and functions that few competitive solutions can provide."
