Latest news on Maextro developments
- The manufacturing data challenges faced by organisations today
Up until the introduction of Maextro, the majority of enterprises running SAP software will have a mixture of semi-automated & manual processes with the latter using offline applications & forms for their SAP manufacturing data.
As well as the layer of MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems) data on the production shop floor, there is rarely one system of record even though data is critical to the manufacturing process.
Often these offline forms for managing data would be attributed to manual processes & de-centralised workflows with few default entries and/or business rules, with sometimes invalid optional entries.
As part of our mission at Bluestonex, we aim to embrace and explore to the fullest the cutting edge technologies of SAP UX. We believe the user experience when interacting with an SAP system should be an exciting one and its interface should be delightful to look at.
With this goal in mind, we have designed a set of rapid deployment Apps that work out of the box with your company’s Maextro solution.
These Apps are developed following the award-winning SAP Fiori Design guidelines and were crafted with the end-user in mind. They offer a fast and beautiful unified experience across all mobile devices and all modern desktop browsers.
Built on the market-tested SAPUI5 framework, the Maextro Fiori Apps adhere to Web Standards and comply with all SAP product standards including security, globalisation, accessibility and performance.
Our team of Design Thinkers and Innovators have collected feedback and user testimonies from Maextro’s customers and thoroughly analysed them to envision a pleasant humanised experience as the front face for our innovative Data Governance technology.
Adopt the Maextro way powered by SAP Fiori. Great technology deserves a great user experience.
Our Journey into Product Development – Introducing Maextro
We’re Bluestonex and we love to craft new ideas and innovative solutions….Yes we do the ‘blue sky’ thinking and then (dependant on how crazy we get) we add a touch of pragmatism. Well I guess that’s my approach as I like to challenge ideas occasionally as I am always trying to understand the consumer or end user of the service or product we start talking about and designing for.
The point is; we love working with people using Design Thinking approaches for innovation / problem solving and this story is a brief blog on how we created one of our first products called ‘Maextro’.
Crediton Dairy is a UK leading dairy business situated in the heart of Devon. With turnover of over £74m, it caters for nearly 13 thousands retail stores
across UK supplying fresh, UHT and flavoured milk. Delivering products on time and reacting to ever changing customer demands in shortest possible
timescales is at the heart of driving Crediton Dairys’ future business growth initiatives.
As part of their recent SAP system upgrade to SAP S/4 HANA, Crediton Dairy have deployed Bluestonex’s Maextro solution to manage material master
data requests and associated packaging components for finished products. The solution was deployed and configured by Bluestonex Consulting in order
to manage Crediton Dairys’ high volume of product throughput within their centralised SAP platform. Crediton Dairy opted for the Maextro solution due to
its scalability, flexibility and close integration with external document management systems’ for unstructured data management.
