ABM Cloud partners with elastic.io to provide faster ERP-to-inventory integration for its flagship ABM Inventory solution and ensure faster projects implementation.
Kyiw, Ukraine and Bonn, Germany – June 24, 2020 – ABM Cloud, an innovative IT services and software solutions provider for supply chain management, goes into partnership with elastic.io, one of the key cloud-based integration platform providers for medium and large enterprises. By joining forces with ABM Cloud, elastic.io expands its connectors portfolio with the company’s powerful inventory management system. Equally, ABM Cloud is excited to offer its clients a high-performance platform that can fully meet their needs for integration and frictionless data exchange.
The companies’ relationship goes back to the SaaStr Europa’s second annual conference in Paris in 2019, where elastic.io was exhibiting as a Gold Sponsor. Common ground was rapidly established as both companies are avid advocates of cloud-based solutions and both are driven by the same desire to support businesses on the path to digital efficiency and innovation.
ABM Cloud and elastic.io initiated collaboration a few months later, when one of ABM Cloud’s clients, a Bulgarian grocery store chain required an integration between their ERP system and ABM Inventory, the company’s own inventory management solution. As a result of the integration, ABM Inventory gets access to daily real-time data on goods quantities. The system automatically analyzes this and other data and makes a decision about the most accurate replenishment quantity.
After the successful completion of the project, ABM Cloud is now planning to extend the implementation of the integration platform to support other clients with similar integration needs. This proves to be particularly advantageous considering the proliferation of various ERP tools at companies ABM Cloud works with. While most clients in the Eastern European countries stick to the 1C solutions – an SAP counterpart in that region –, companies outside the block use a wide variety of solutions, to which one-to-one integrations might be too cumbersome.
Faster inventory integration through connectors
Through the elastic.io integration platform, ABM Cloud has already gained access to a vast number of pre-built connectors to mainstream business applications such as Shopify, Marketo, Salesforce, SAP ByDesign or Microsoft solutions. The connectors function as ready-to-use touchpoints for applications, while the platform itself plays the role of a hub where they all come together. The approach allows for any subsequently added connector to be automatically compatible with all other already available connectors.
This enables the integrators to design integration scenarios and automate even complex end-to-end processes more efficiently, quickly, and in a scalable way, since every piece of integration needs to be added only once and then reused as many times as needed. As part of the partnership, elastic.io and ABM Cloud intend to developing further connectors for the ABM clients’ systems.
“It is exciting that our integration platform is now part of the service package that ABM Cloud offers to its clients,” said Renat Zubairov, CEO of elastic.io, adding that he is glad to join forces in the effort to help the companies’ clients thrive in the digital world. “What’s more – ABM Cloud’s solution portfolio is absolutely impressive, and we are looking forward to adding it – together with the inventory integration solution – to our connectors offering as well.”
“Our partnership with this company and the use of ready-made elastic.io solutions for better integrating ABM Cloud products into our customers’ IT infrastructure will reduce the workload of clients’ technical staff and accelerate project delivery. Our customers will get better and faster access to all ABM Cloud benefits and solutions,” says Alexey Medvedev, ABM Cloud CEO. “We are pleased to work with the elastic.io team. The first joint project showed that elastic.io is a flexible tool that easily and quickly integrates into any client’s IT infrastructure and works with any IT solution. Our company is actively developing, and we are sure we will accomplish a lot of new interesting projects together!”
