MADISON, Wis., March 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SAP America, Inc., a subsidiary of SAP AG (NYSE: SAP), today announced that radiation therapy system manufacturer TomoTherapy Incorporated successfully implemented the SAP(R) Business All-in-One solution in a remarkable 16 weeks and realized immediate business benefits. In January 2007, TomoTherapy went live on SAP Business All-in-One with the goals of managing complex product innovation electronically and consolidating technological leadership in a high-growth market while exploring new international opportunities.

"SAP Business All-in-One and SAP Best Practices gave TomoTherapy the tools to implement quickly, so that we could keep our focus on our customers," said Martin Christopher, director of IT, TomoTherapy. "Our system was delivered on time, within budget and with no unplanned downtime. With SAP Business All-in-One, TomoTherapy has much better visibility into our global operations and performance, and we enjoy the peace of mind that comes from having a fully compliant business system that enables us to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley. In addition, by taking advantage of the controls and integrated architecture of SAP Business All-in-One, we have more than doubled the throughput for engineering change orders, which directly benefits our customers."

Headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin, TomoTherapy reshapes radiation therapy with its unique TomoTherapy(R) Hi Art(R) treatment system, integrating CT imaging and helical intensity-modulated radiation therapy to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of radiation treatment for a wide range of cancer tumors. The medical manufacturer selected SAP for its technical excellence and long-term reliability to maintain the company's rapid pace of innovation and growth.

In recognition of the company's impressive technology consolidation, integration efforts and effective project management, TomoTherapy has been named "Regional Champion" representing the Americas in the recent SAP Best Practices success snapshot program. The company garnered the honor based on its rapid and innovative deployment project, which utilized pre-delivered blueprints, personalized system configuration, scenario and integration test scripts, end-user procedures, and other proprietary tools and templates.

The SAP Best Practices success snapshot program was created to highlight examples of the growing number of midmarket customers that are using SAP Best Practices embedded in SAP Business All-in-One to expedite solution implementation and improve operational excellence. In 2007, SAP and partner employees around the world submitted project profiles from 32 customers to the competition.
