Conductix-Wampfler Selects Seapine Software to Optimize Software Delivery

Seapine’s application lifecycle management (ALM) solution helps world leader in energy and data transmission systems to synchronize software development processes and customer-facing systems

Cincinnati, OH – November 4, 2009 – Seapine Software, a leading global provider of quality-centric application lifecycle management (ALM) solutions, today announced that Conductix-Wampfler has selected its comprehensive ALM solution to optimize the delivery of energy and data transmission products and services to its customers worldwide. Seapine’s tightly-integrated ALM solution will help Conductix-Wampfler better control all phases of the software delivery process, join together various business information systems to improve data sharing and visibility, and increase the accuracy and timeliness of customer transactions.

A world leader in intelligent energy and data transmission systems, Conductix-Wampfler produces products that supply power on a 24/7/365 basis to stationary and mobile systems such as overhead and port cranes, amusement rides, production machines, and large mass transit systems. The company’s IT group is responsible for creating applications and automating business processes that enable Conductix-Wampler employees to perform key work functions, such customer service and support, engineering change orders, training, capital investments, and many other critical tasks. When the organization’s development and IT initiatives grew more complex and inter-system integration became an issue, the IT group soon realized it needed a comprehensive platform to effectively manage their entire application development process and customer-facing applications. Conductix-Wampfler turned to Seapine Software for an end-to-end ALM solution.

“We’re currently using Seapine’s Surround SCM product to manage our source code and other digital assets, and are very pleased with its capabilities,” said Chris Michl, CIO of Conductix-Wampfler’s US IT group. “But our existing defect tracking tool did not integrate with Surround SCM and had its limitations. In addition, our development activities became more intricate and we were missing the key tools to better manage other aspects of our development process. Seapine’s complete ALM solution now enables us to efficiently manage our requirements, test cases, defects, and source code, as well as automate our functional and regression testing on a single tightly integrated platform.”

Conductix-Wampfler’s IT group will leverage the tightly integrated and customizable Seapine ALM solution to formalize and automate their entire software delivery process. This robust solution will help the organization promote team communication and collaboration through automated workflows and centralized control of all project assets. Seapine’s ALM solution will also help Conductix-Wampfler bridge the communication gap between business and IT stakeholders by closely integrating their SAP, CRM, customer web sites, and quotation systems. Now equipped with end-to-end ALM capabilities, the Conductix-Wampfler development team will be able to accelerate the delivery of high-quality system solutions to the competitive energy and data transmission marketplace.
