Neuron ESB 3.0, middleware software created by Microsoft National Systems Integrator and Gold ISV Partner Neudesic, has been selected by Pyrotek Inc., a global manufacturer and supplier of high-temperature materials equipment for a variety of industries, to automate the sales and purchase order processes within its global supply chain.

Pyrotek operates plants around the world that manufacture products for the aluminum, glass, zinc and sound industries. These products are then shipped to the company’s distribution facilities worldwide. This global supply chain requires Pyrotek to create sales and purchase orders between its own plants, but these orders were being processed using a time-consuming, inefficient, manual process.

“Pyrotek evaluated a number of solutions and ultimately chose Neuron ESB based on its versatility and simplicity,” said Pyrotek Project Manager Ryan Belanger.  “Neudesic’s Neuron ESB software team provided us with a working concept of their solution in a matter of hours.”

The Neuron ESB middleware software catches new purchase orders in the OAGIS XML format, validates them, transforms them to sales orders and routes them to the correct enterprise resource planning database based on the content of each order.  With the Neuron ESB technology, Pyrotek is also able to handle detailed logging and email notifications for transaction successes and errors.

“Our decision to go with Neuron ESB has been reinforced by the excellent technical support from the Neuron team,” Belanger said.
