The industry cloud solution reimagines equipment and tools management
Amsterdam / Walldorf, April 28, 2022 – Management and technology consultancy BearingPoint announced today that its ETM.next solution is now an SAP endorsed app, available for purchase on SAP® Store as part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio for the engineering, construction and operations industry. SAP Endorsed Apps are a category of solutions from SAP’s partner ecosystem that help customers become best-run, intelligent enterprises. SAP Endorsed Apps are premium certified by SAP with added security, in-depth testing and measurements against benchmarks results.
ETM.next is built on SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and integrates with SAP S/4HANA® using SAP Integration Suite and/or SAP Extension Suite to deliver equipment and tools management to customers as part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio.
We are extremely proud of this achievement, which recognizes ETM.next’s capability as an industry cloud solution to plan, operate, rent, bill, control and manage fleet, equipment and tools. It is a great proof point of how we can shape the future and co-innovate with SAP for businesses across many industries – including construction, industrial services, utilities, mining, and oil and gas, along with other industries where heavy equipment is key to delivering services. Integrated with SAP S/4HANA, the digitally verticalized solution is a major differentiator and ‘best-in-class’ offering for businesses using SAP technologies.
