ATLANTA, GA and IRVINE, CA – Global business integration software provider SEEBURGER today announced the addition of SAP-certified systems integration partner Aptelis, Inc., to the rapidly growing network of channel partners authorized to sell and deploy SEEBURGER’s award-winning SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS). The partnership will allow Aptelis to enhance the value of customers’ SAP implementations with trading partner communications, secure managed file transfer and related solutions that are seamlessly integrated into the SAP environment.

With more than 15 years of SAP consulting experience for clients across the country, the Aptelis management team views SEEBURGER’s tight SAP integration as an opportunity to drive incremental sales closely aligned with Aptelis’ core business as well as to differentiate itself from competitors that focus exclusively on SAP consulting and staff augmentation. Customers will benefit from SEEBURGER’s industry-first platform for managing supply chain communications and file sharing in one integrated system; ability to streamline business processes, increase data security, and facilitate governance and regulatory compliance; and reduce both risk and deployment time with pre-configured SAP workflows and built-in SAP best practices.
“I worked on an SAP project that included a SEEBURGER implementation for a consumer electronics client several years ago, so I had a firsthand look at the value of their technology in helping to maximize the SAP investment,” said Paul Tran, President, Aptelis. “With this partnership, we are both diversifying our portfolio and strengthening our ability to become a trusted advisor on whom our customers can rely for a range of solutions that can help increase their efficiency and optimize their operations.”
All functions and components of the SEEBURGER BIS are now available through Aptelis, including:
- SEEBURGER Managed File Transfer (MFT) for SAP, an SAP-specific edition of SEEBURGER’s award-winning SEE MFT suite that works directly within SAP and SAP NetWeaver PI/XI to encrypt, track and trace exchanged SAP and non-SAP business files of any size; stop data leakage caused by file exports out of SAP; and eliminate the unwieldy patchwork of plug-ins, FTP/SFTP servers, and gateway- or application-specific MFT servers typically used to manage file transfers.
- SEEBURGER B2B/EDI, a set of solutions that automate supply chain transaction messages with strategies ranging from conventional B2B/EDI to WebEDI. The B2B/EDI components of BIS can be used in tandem with SEE MFT to consolidate management and reporting of all business file transfer activity under one interface for the first time.
- SEEBURGER B2B/SCM (Supply Chain Management) Monitor for SAP, an SAP add-on that provides full visibility into supply chain transactions from the SAP interface for easy access by business users without the need to call EDI staff to check individual processes. This eliminates delays in problem identification and resolution, improves customer service, and reduces costs.
- SEEBURGER Order-to-Cash Solution Extension for SAP, an SAP add-on that fully automates booking by scanning incoming paper-based orders, verifying relevant information against SAP master data, and seamlessly linking and automating order entry, order verification, delivery, invoicing and receipt of payment to accelerate revenue recognition.
The relationship also gives Aptelis access to comprehensive channel partner resources that earned the SEEBURGER partner program a 5-Star Partner rating in CRN’s 2012 Partner Programs Guide. These resources range from a dedicated global channel and alliance team that helps partners grow their revenues to online opportunity registration and a feature-rich partner portal.
“Aptelis is precisely the kind of channel partner we are looking for to service mid-market SAP shops that need solutions to today’s complex business integration and secure file transfer challenges: a highly respected SAP consultancy with a broad customer reach in multiple industry sectors,” said Rohit Khanna, EVP, Global Strategy and Corporate Development, SEEBURGER. “As the demand for data security, compliance and advanced business integration continues to rise, partners like Aptelis will play an increasingly important role in bringing our offerings to the attention of our target audience.”
