Mount Pleasant Waterworks (in S.C.) is seeking guidance, lessons learned, and best practices from other Maximo users regarding integrating Maximo and financial systems to improve Inventory Management.
Currently, all our purchasing and inventory management is handled exclusively in our Financial Information System (which for us is Dynamics GP). A very basic interface with Dynamics GP does update Maximo each night with the latest Inventory Item list and costs so accurate information can be captured on Work Orders – but currently no Inventory usage data from Maximo is returned to GP.
We would like to develop a much more robust integration between Maximo and Dynamics GP for Inventory management, and would also like to be able to initiate Purchase Requisitions from Maximo and pass those over to our financial system – so purchasing data is linked to Work Orders and Assets in Maximo.
We would very much like to speak with any other Maximo users who have done anything similar with any financial system. Please contact me if you have experience with this kind of integration. Any advice, lessons learned, or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
