Manufacturing and Plant Maintenance Customer Success Story with Neptune DXP
Challenge: High volume operations across 65 plants stilted by long walks to a desktop
The Neptune Software journey to reach their digital vision started with the standardization and mobilization of their Warehouse Management processes. Due to the success of this project and the ability to own and drive innovation with the Neptune DX Platform, CertainTeed quickly progressed to Plant Maintenance mobilization which is currently on-going even in times of COVID.
When you process more than 125,000 work orders a year across 65 plants, efficiency is key. Fast, easy access to plant maintenance documents – pictures, bill of materials, work orders, PMARS, and the like – makes a big difference in efficiency and ultimately the bottom line.
At CertainTeed, keeping the plants operating smoothly doesn’t allow time for quarter-mile jaunts between the job site and the dedicated computer workstation to access the SAP Plant Maintenance solutions. Plus, there’s a risk of information not getting documented in the system in the first place, which makes it harder to accurately assess processes, workflow, and output.
“We needed to eliminate the need to use a computer terminal to get work done,” said CertainTeed’s Digital Manufacturing Director David Halpren. “The high volume of orders we process meant that we needed a more efficient way to access and add data to our SAP PM module where work was happening.”
It’s a scenario that was ripe for a mobile solution. And that’s exactly what CertainTeed set out to deliver using Neptune Software’s modern rapid application development platform–the Neptune Software Digital Experience Platform (DXP) – SAP Edition. The solution provided CertainTeed with full mobility and out-of-the box offline capabilities that helped them quickly digitize plant maintenance and warehouse management solutions bringing them one step closer to their digital vision.
With the Neptune DX Platform, being an SAP-certified app development platform and embedded within the existing ABAP stack, CertainTeed would be able to design, build, integrate, deploy and maintain SAP Fiori apps in a fraction of the time it would take with custom Fiori development or other development platforms — accelerating the delivery of its mobile solutions with the most-native application development platform for SAP-centric use cases.

“Neptune Software gives you the flexibility to do almost anything and basically rebuild functionality. It was a great experience to be able to connect those dots and to turn something rigid into something flexible. Ultimately, Neptune Software’s app development platform made our digitization journey a good experience.”
