Data-Informed Decision-Making for the Modern Supply Chain

Powered by SAP Cloud Platform

This is an exciting time as we are finalizing some major upgrades to the product. We are excited to announce the new SAP-certified version of oVo Lighthouse™ that utilizes OData technology to retrieve data from the back-end SAP system.

We would like to proudly announce the new SAP-certified version of oVo Lighthouse™. The newly released version is delivered with pre-developed NW Gateway services to access data directly from backend SAP ERP system via a secure connection through SAP Cloud Connector, as a result eliminating the need to provide data files.

Along with a new SAP-certified version of oVo Lighthouse™, we would like to announce the availability of Production Schedule Attainment KPIs. The new KPIs measure the performance of production scheduling by comparing scheduled vs. planned vs. actual end dates for both process and production orders, providing insight into the inefficiencies of the production process for companies in a discrete manufacturing industry.

What can you expect to see in the future?

We are continuously working on improving the user experience. We are working on integrating Action Tracker and oVo® certification exam stats right into the oVo Lighthouse™, as well as defining and developing the next set of supply chain KPIs.

Do you want to get an early sneak peek of our next release? Do you know any clients that want to help us test our solutions before everyone else? We are establishing customer involvement groups to help us with pilot rollouts of new versions of the oVo Lighthouse™. They can be the first to see our new functionality and have a say in how their Supply Chain measures are presented.
