Comments: We began using ioMotion PDC Gateway in 2005. We have a bi-directional interface between our Kronos Workforce Activities 7.0 system and our SAP ECC 7.4 System. Our data travels in XML batches via the customized iomotion vbscript like mapping engine.
Kronos <-> ioMotion PDC Gateway <-> Microsoft MSMQ <-> Microsoft Biztalk <-> SAP ECC:
1. Maintenance Orders
2. PS Network Activities
3. Production Orders
4. FI-CO Cost Centers
5. Production Order Confirmations
6. HR Minimaster Employees
7. Maintenance Order Confirmations via CATS
8. Cost Center charges via CATS
9. Network Activity confirmations via CATS
Upgrading the customized scripts from vbscript technology to newer iomotion .Net based approach could be a challenge. ioMotion has been great to work with over the years and will likely be up to the future challenges of maintaining the highly customized batch interface.

Very good product

Comments: We have been using the iomotion interface product since 2002. Our manufacturing is using PDC Gateway as a dynamic connection between Kronos Workforce Activities and SAP PP / PM. It is reliable and consistent. It performs up and down transactions at the same time. We have logic built in to control and automate machine clocking. If a machine reports a completion, the PDC Gateway checks if there is a setup time planned and if it has not been previously confirmed it creates the confirmation saving our employees time. We have laser engravers that digitally report their completions to the PDC Gateway -- these transactions are then dynamically communicated to SAP. Service is outstanding and it is priced right.
