As a Gold Certified, Global Independent Software Vendor (GISV) partner, Apriso has a strong working relationship with Microsoft. Together, we provide an application platform to improve business productivity, efficiency and global visibility to manufacturing operations and the distributed supply chain.

FlexNet is built on Microsoft technology, so therefore integrates seamlessly with the suite of Microsoft products for improved agility and responsiveness across operations. Apriso's real-time manufacturing operations management solution can measure and react to changes in your business or your suppliers' business. This information can then be readily available across the suite of Microsoft products for further analysis, review and evaluation.

As a Microsoft preferred partner, Apriso has been instrumental to the foundation and launch of Microsoft’s Reference Architecture Framework for Discrete Manufacturing (DiRA). Guided by six themes that enhance innovation and productivity, DiRA helps discrete manufacturers select technologies to improve individual performance, extract greater value from existing enterprise software investments, enhance cross-functional and cross-organizational collaboration, and create new customer-focused products and services to seize opportunities in a fast-changing, ever-more-interconnected world.

Microsoft users can leverage this partnership to:

  • Achieve an integrated IT platform that drives down enterprise manufacturing costs while simultaneously meeting customer demands
  • Seamlessly integrate manufacturing operations into enterprise Microsoft based tools to reduce the total cost of ownership
  • Collaborate, share and distribute best manufacturing practices across your global enterprise to dramatically improve manufacturing efficiency and responsiveness
  • Significantly reduce the total cost of manufacturing IT ownership by eliminating silos of legacy systems (Unix, VMS, etc.) and standardizing on Microsoft's technology platform (SharePoint, SQL server, BizTalk, Vista, Dynamics, Microsoft Reporting Services…)
