CyOptics selects Verian’s requisition and workflow automation software to enhance SAP functionality

Verian of Charlotte, NC, USA says that it is providing requisition and workflow automation solutions to CyOptics Inc of Lehigh Valley, PA, USA, which makes indium phosphide (InP)-based and silica-on-silicon optical chips and components. “Our employees needed a faster and easier way to make requisitions and route them for approval,” says CyOptics’ procurement director Kim Leader. “The Verian system will serve as a requisitioning and approval workflow tool that integrates directly into SAP.”

CyOptics designs and develops a full line of InP optical chips and components for integration into access, metro and long-haul communications. Its products are enabled by an automated ‘nano-tech’-capable manufacturing process that, it is claimed, delivers optimum performance, uniformity and cost. The ISO9001:2008-certified firm’s InP design, device fabrication and packaging operations are in Lehigh Valley, PA; its silica photonic lightwave circuit (PLC) fab is in South Plainfield, NJ; and its planar automated packaging & testing operations are in Matamoros, Mexico.

“We’re seeing a growing demand in the marketplace for a requisitioning and approval workflow tool that integrates easily with SAP, Oracle or other ERP [enterprise resource planning] systems,” says Verian’s senior product manager Ganesh Sundaresan. “CyOptics will be the third customer this year to integrate Verian’s requisitioning and approval workflow solutions into SAP. Organizations are finding Verian’s solutions are much easier to learn and adopt than tools within the major ERP systems,” he claims.

The flexibility and modular nature of Verian’s purchasing and invoice processing allows customers like CyOptics to choose only the modules and functionality they need from Verian’s full suite of purchasing and invoice processing solutions, the firm says.

“We look forward to helping CyOptics increase their visibility into SG&A [selling, general & administrative] expenditures,” says Verian’s president & CEO Tehseen Ali Dahya.
