Intelliwave Announces SiteSense Integration with SAP S/4HANA


Intelliwave Technologies has announced the availability of its SiteSense Mobile Materials Management solution on the SAP Store, offering customers a powerful tool for managing construction materials and inventory. The integration with SAP S/4HANA enables seamless synchronization of procurement data and goods movement transactions, empowering field teams to efficiently handle materials, inventory, and warehouse management tasks using mobile devices.

The construction industry faces significant challenges in managing materials, which account for a substantial portion of project budgets. Inefficient materials management can lead to unnecessary re-ordering, delayed payments, and reduced labor productivity. Intelliwave’s SiteSense addresses these issues by providing a comprehensive solution that leverages the power of SAP S/4HANA data and advanced sensor technology.

Dale Beard, President and Co-Founder of Intelliwave, emphasizes the importance of bridging the gap between procurement and planning teams and the on-site inventory and materials management personnel. SiteSense aims to eliminate information silos by creating a seamless integration between these teams, enabling real-time data sharing and collaboration.

By automating various processes and leveraging technologies such as RFID, BLE, and GPS, SiteSense also streamlines the management of materials, tools, equipment, and assets. This automation further reduces the time and resources required on-site, allowing construction teams to focus on their core tasks and improve overall efficiency.

Key Benefits of SiteSense Integration with SAP S/4HANA

The integration between SiteSense and SAP S/4HANA offers several significant benefits to construction companies:

  1. Reduced Material Waste: By providing real-time visibility into inventory levels and material requirements, SiteSense helps avoid unnecessary re-ordering and re-purchasing. This can also lead to a reduction in supplies by up to 40%, resulting in substantial cost savings.
  2. Improved Cash Flow: SiteSense enables field teams to close the loop for payment directly from the job site. This streamlined process can also improve cash flow savings by up to 23%, ensuring timely payments and maintaining a healthy financial position.
  3. Increased Labor Productivity: With the ability to locate materials faster using advanced sensor technology, SiteSense can increase craft labor productivity by up to 16%. This translates to more efficient use of resources and faster project completion times.

SiteSense covers four critical areas in construction project management: Materials and Inventory Management, Track and Trace, Materials and Equipment Planning, and Tools, Assets, and Equipment Management. By addressing these key aspects, the solution further provides a comprehensive approach to optimizing construction operations.

As a partner in the SAP PartnerEdge program, Intelliwave Technologies benefits from the enablement tools, support, and resources provided by SAP. This partnership allows Intelliwave to develop high-quality, disruptive applications that cater to specific business needs in a cost-effective and timely manner.

The availability of SiteSense on the SAP Store further simplifies the procurement process for customers.
