SYSPRO Recognized By Media Outlet For Tech

COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP for the manufacturing pragmatist, today announced that the company has been selected by Everything Channel, part of Computer Reseller News (CRN), for its Emerging Tech Vendor List 2008. CRN's Emerging Tech list recognizes companies that enhance functionality and ease-of-use for the small and medium-sized business (SMB) marketplace.

Vendors who make the CRN Emerging Tech list must have an established solution provider program and formal guidelines for recruiting channel partners. They must demonstrate a direct sales mix which is trending down as evidenced by the company’s revenue history, a channel positive or channel neutral strategy for internal sales compensation and not be a dominant market share player. Final selection to the Emerging Technology list was made at the discretion of the CRN editorial team after a review of the submitted information and conversations with current or targeted partners.

SYSPRO has founded a new IT buyer category that it calls “PragmaVision” â€" the bridge between visionary, yet pragmatic and proven ERP solutions for mid-market technology buyers. These buyers demand a unique combination of robust, scalable yet current technologies that provide zero risk and high return. They buy into new technologies only after there is a clear, easy understanding of the benefits. They demand strong references, desire proven track records with new technologies and seek evolution not revolution.

SYSPRO offers a single, integrated enterprise solution with exceptional core, manufacturing and distribution, functionality and specific differentiable functionality developed around its expertise in the Medical Device, Food, Electronics and Machinery and Equipment Manufacturing industry verticals. This broad slate enables SYSPRO VARs to tailor solutions to meet the needs of their customers. SYSPRO’s extensive solution encompasses: Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP); Enterprise Relationship Management (ERM); Supply Chain Management (SCM); Customer Relationship Management (CRM); Business Activity Monitoring (BAM); Warehouse Management (WMS); Business Analytics; and eCommerce Solutions (Business to Business & Business to Consumer.)

Last year, SYSPRO added extensive functionality to its ERP software in addition to new customization capabilities. The new SYSPRO Fluid Interface Design improves software personalization, customization and utilization, optionally at Role level, by using common actions like drag and drop to move or create custom fields, delete and restore fields, tailor forms, move items to background status and perform a myriad of other customization actions. SYSPRO also added:

  • Families & Groupings, a second module in a series of three advanced Inventory Optimization solutions designed to improve business forecasting and leverage Lean Manufacturing principles;
  • SYSPRO CyberScan, a fully integrated browser-based barcode solution that sets a new standard for operational flexibility;
  • SYSPRO ShopClock, a real-time, data collection solution that captures employee time and attendance as well as materials issued and the time spent on jobs;
  • Additional scheduling options for SYSPRO Factory Scheduling software solution;
  • New SYSPRO Office Integration (SOI) functionality that enables any enterprise user to securely access information directly from the SYSPRO database when working within a Microsoft Office product such as Outlook, Word or Excel;
  • Quality for SYSPRO by uniPoint, a new solution that enables SYSPRO users to create, link, communicate, track and manage the life cycle of quality activities and documents; and
  • Electronic Signatures for operator authentication to satisfy regulatory requirements with the added ability to trigger actions as a result of user-defined conditions.

The extensive list of SYSPRO feature enhancements extends from improved financial visibility and expanded multi-site management to accurate control and costing of co- and by-products. Additional functionality in the traceability of items further strengthens the SYSPRO offering for specific vertical niche markets such as pharmaceutical, medical device and electronic manufacturers.

SYSPRO solutions, built on the Microsoft .NET Framework, also enables SYSPRO VARs to easily extend the standard SYSPRO functionality to link to other applications to execute Service Oriented Architecture.
