SYSPRO ERP Reseller Channel Gains Top Quality Award

COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP for the manufacturing pragmatist, today announced that the company's reseller channel has received the 2008 Top Quality Award from K2 Enterprises, a leading consulting and research firm for the accounting industry. The award follows a recent announcement by SYSPRO that it will be growing its value-added reseller program in North America by 20% over the next 12 months. For 20 years SYSPRO has been totally focused at selling its product through its national reseller network.

K2 bestows its Quality Awards each year based on a nationwide polling of the team of K2 Enterprises instructors as well as hundreds of software practitioners and resellers. SYSPRO, known for its PragmaVision ™ (practical, yet visionary) enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions sold in 60 countries, has more than 14,000 global customers.

SYSPRO's reseller program has been consistently recognized for excellence for more than two decades. It offers a highly integrated mix of training, communication, educational support and other services to its resellers, as well as several levels of SYSPRO reseller certification.

Recently the company hired a new IT industry channel veteran, Brenda Nobleza, to spearhead the effort. Nobleza has been tasked with recruiting new "super VAR" partners to champion SYSPRO's key vertical initiatives in the food, medical devices, electronics and machinery/equipment markets. SYSPRO focuses on mid-market manufacturers and distributors in this space.

Predrag Jakovljevic, Research Director, Technology Evaluation Centers in TEC's 2008 blog, "Surviving Amid ‘ERP Sharks' as a "Visionary Vendor for the Pragmatic User" also references the excellence of the SYSPRO channel: "The [SYSPRO] partners are experts in both sales and implementations and have the regional and vertical market expertise. In each geographic region where SYSPRO has strong presence, the dominant sales and implementations model is via partnerships."

SYSPRO: Commitment to Partner Program Excellence The SYSPRO reseller program offers wide support geared to retention of both the industry's best re-sellers as well as the mutual customer base:

  • Ongoing education from SYSPRO Learning Channel broadcasts and a comprehensive 24/7 library bring e-learning to the desktop;
  • The SYSPRO Support Zone that ensures up-to-date product information and knowledge;
  • The SYSPRO Sales Zone that provides customer and focused vertical industry information; and
  • The SYSPRO STARS Implementation Methodology, which has won four consecutive K2 Quality Awards.

SYSPRO's more thoughtful approach to adopting new technology, such as web services and SOA platforms, also reflects the desires of its buyers who are driven by business needs and not by the latest headlines. This exemplifies SYSPRO's ongoing strategy of helping to simplify the success of its customers. SYSPRO calls its buyer landscape "PragmaVision,"™ consisting of pragmatic, visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but aggressive market growth.
