Backflow Device Inspection App from Utegration Now Available on SAP® Store as Part of SAP’s Industry Cloud Portfolio

Easy-to-adopt digital solution improves regulatory compliance, transparency and customer satisfaction for the utilities industry.

Houston, Texas — June 9, 2022—Utegration, LLC announced today that its Backflow Device Inspection app is now available on SAP® Store and is part of SAP’s industry cloud portfolio for the utilities industry.

Utegration’s Backflow Device Inspection app is built on SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and integrates with SAP S/4HANA® Utilities and SAP HANA® to deliver a digital solution connecting utility customers, backflow device inspectors, and water utilities to the backflow device inspection process.

“With our Backflow Device Inspection app, water utilities have a simple cloud solution that can replace current paper-based processes, which can be slow and error-prone,” said Kai Bi, managing director of product development at Utegration. “It simplifies the process for plumbers/inspectors, utilities and their customers alike. Utilities may even choose to offer the solution to plumbers/inspectors for a fee, creating a potential new revenue source.”

The Backflow Device Inspection app delivers value to water utilities through:

  • Information transparency
  • Automated integration
  • Real-time reporting
  • Increased efficiency
  • Elimination of errors due to manual reporting processes

“The app supports a loosely coupled, but critical, regulation process involving customers, contractors, and enterprises, running on the same SAP® technology with the core ERP,” said Bi. “Most importantly, it offers an opportunity to integrate the process into the back-end customer billing (via SAP S/4HANA Utilities), SAP Enterprise Asset Management , and document management solutions, so that the inspection and verification work are automated and auditable.”

“The Backflow Device Inspection app developed by Utegration complements our portfolio and enables improved regulatory compliance, transparency and satisfaction for our customers,” said Daniela Sellmann, Global Head of Industry Business Unit (IBU) Utilities at SAP. “This is a prime example of how collaboration between our organizations can deliver quick innovations and holistic end-to-end processes for our customers.”

To enable companies to become intelligent enterprises, SAP is expanding its vertical solutions with an ecosystem of industry cloud solutions. The solutions leverage SAP BTP with advanced technologies and are interoperable with SAP’s digital and sustainable core. Utegration, LLC is working with SAP to create offerings that meet utility requirements to provide customers with processes to help achieve cost-effective and sustainable business growth.
