SHANGHAI, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In a tribute to its relentless efforts to improve efficiencies across its global supply chain, Advanced Micro-Fabrication Equipment Inc. (AMEC) was named a SAP HANA® Innovation Award winner for 2017. AMEC captured honors in the "Digital Trailblazer" category of the Customer Track section, which recognizes companies for breakthrough innovation, as well as enabling new business models and opportunities.

The SAP HANA® Innovation Award recognizes the extraordinary ways customers and partners are innovating and winning in the digital economy using SAP Platform and Technology solutions. Winners are selected by a panel of global judges that includes IT industry influencers, as well as SAP executives.
As a leading provider of advanced process technologies to global semiconductor manufacturers, AMEC relies on the products and services of hundreds of suppliers located in Asia, the US and Europe. Smooth inter-enterprise communication is an essential driver of supply-chain efficiencies and lower costs. AMEC turned to the SAP HANA® platform to empower its global supply-chain operations with greater real-time advantages. By removing communications barriers, the Platform vastly improved information sharing and facilitated real-time workflow coordination. Furthermore, quality control and progress tracking was enhanced by synchronizing and speeding data collection across production facilities. The end result was significant cost reduction when compared to AMEC's previous ERP system, as well as improved efficiencies and better overall quality management and control.
"This year's SAP HANA Innovation Award participants are winning in today's digital economy using SAP's modern data platform and technology solutions to power SAP and non-SAP applications," said Greg McStravick, president, Database and Data Management, SAP.
