Xavor Corporation, a Gold-level member of Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of FlexApprove version 1.3 with Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) version 9.3

Online PR News – 22-February-2012 – – Xavor Corporation, a Gold-level member of Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of FlexApprove version 1.3 with Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) version 9.3, enabling engineers to review changes, make comments, and view redlines on change orders and requests directly from either the iPhone, Android or Blackberry™ platform, as well as the iPad.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of the customers. FlexApprove is the first of multiple applications developed as part of the Flex Series of apps that support Oracle’s Agile PLM and the growing proliferation of mobile devices in enterprise environments.

“With the need to optimize product development and speed time to market, we listened when we heard our customers say they needed to be able to respond to change requests as quickly as possible. The FlexApprove mobility solution pushes key information to those who need to take action, anytime, anywhere,” said VP of Technology for Xavor, Hassan Ramay.

“What the PLM Flex team at Xavor has done in leveraging the standard interfaces is what we envisioned for our partners, to augment the product with value-added solutions that serve the Agile community in a highly targeted way,” said John Kelley, vice president, PLM Product Strategy, Oracle. “Achieving Oracle Validated Integration through Oracle PartnerNetwork gives our customers confidence that the integration between Flex Approve v1.3 and Oracle’s Agile Product Lifecycle Management version 9.3 has been validated, which helps reduce risk and improves the implementation cycles for our joint customers”

FlexApprove is quick to install, and the tiered architecture fits securely into your enterprise architecture, according to Xavor’s Director of PLM Flex Applications, Arif Ansari, and the features are non-disruptive thanks to the Agile Software Development Kit, so delays in cycle times can be reduced dramatically.. The application is bundled with a support agreement from Xavor, ensuring long term value with future releases of new features and compatibility with Agile.
