Ultriva Customers Implement Fifteen Enhanced Features in New Version
Cupertino, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/10/2014 -- Ultriva customers are either now on Ultriva 7.6 version or in the process of migrating to the new version. The unique approach allows Ultriva customers to upgrade to the newer version at their own pace because customers need to do a few rounds of testing to make sure their integration with their on-site ERP system is working as expected.
There is a blog describing this process at: http://web.ultriva.com/ultriva-blog/bid/100037/An-extremely-Busy-Year-for-Ultriva-Engineering.
Ultriva 7.6 Ultriva delivered various updates to the End to End pull software product at the end of 2013. Pushparaj Shanmugam, Director of Engineering for Ultriva, discussed the enhanced features to the software based on customer inputs in the company’s current blog. Shanmugam explained, “We delivered Ultriva 7.6 recently and this version alone had about 15 new or enhanced features. Almost all of these 15 features grew out of our customer feedback. We take our customer input seriously and quickly incorporate their ideas and requests through our agile product development approach. In comparison, such releases are uncommon in traditional onsite software products.”
Shanmugam noted that the engineering team added so many new integration points to the Oracle Connector that it can be "plug-n-play" with the Oracle ERP system. A recent customer upgrade added a new plant to their deployment without any glitches. The customer has been integrated with their Oracle ERP 12.x and they are using the ‘out of the box’ Oracle connector. Shanmugam commented, “Our customer sent a thank you email to our support that read, ‘Please advise the Ultriva engineers that it all worked right out of the box!’”
