SYSPRO Announces New Scalable ERP Release; Empowers Mid-Sized Companies to Embrace New Technologies and Helps Improve Productivity

SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that SYSPRO 7 will be available for general market release in 2013. SYSPRO 7 is all about adapting to the growth requirements of organizations by giving them the scalability, mobility, and enhanced performance they require in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace. In keeping with SYSPRO’s collaborative approach, the new solution is currently in “community preview” to SYSPRO resellers and partners. The announcement was made here at the company’s Winter 2012 analyst roadshow before 32 leading technology analysts.

For more than 30 years, SYSPRO ERP solutions have been known as the “go-to” solution for global mid-market manufacturing organizations requiring a more targeted, better value choice than currently available from industry giants. With each successive release, SYSPRO has demonstrated to industry veterans that its highly flexible and customizable full suite of ERP solutions provides substantial productivity and business growth advantages.

“SYSPRO, as a privately held company with 100% of our focus on satisfying our customer and reseller community (as opposed to the investment community), ensures that our priorities and people are all about achieving customer satisfaction and delivering a high quality solution at a high-return price point,” explains Phil Duff, CEO, SYSPRO. “We have an enviable track record in the ERP market by providing manufacturing organizations globally with the flexibility and customizability they need to differentiate themselves. The release of SYSPRO 7 is the next evolution of our commitment to helping our clients make their business more agile.

“SYSPRO knows what it takes to survive and thrive, we are able to innovate and deliver the market’s very best ERP solutions, and our newest products like SYPSRO 7 continually reflect the changing times, empowering our customers to simply adopt and embrace those new technologies determined by market trends and conditions,” further explains Duff.

Enhanced User Interface and enterprise-wide customization

Leveraging the company’s award-winning flexibility and customization capabilities delivered previously for user roles in Release 6.1, SYSPRO is now expanding its powerful user interface (UI) capabilities. Styled along the lines of Windows 8, SYSPRO 7 brings active tiles and touch capabilities to its enterprise UI, enabling manufacturers and distributors to easily create tailor-fit environments for their SYSPRO solution that will feel and operate with all the advantages of a home-built solution – without the maintenance and upgrade disadvantages.

To support large-scale customization for businesses, the new UI also enables enterprise-wide modifications and themes. The new industry layouts can be particularly helpful for corporate alignment within specific vertical industries, of which the SYSPRO solution is well known for having additional expertise in the food, medical devices, machinery/equipment, electronics and pharmaceuticals/chemicals markets.

SYSPRO 7 responds to improved productivity requirements

Recognizing the necessity among mid-sized manufacturing and distribution companies for faster performance, capacity and volume requirements, SYSPRO 7 provides powerful processing for higher transactional throughput whilst building on SYSPRO’s commitment to being scalable for small through to large enterprises. SYSPRO 7’s mobile platform will also enable easy, anywhere access, and improved reporting capabilities including remote report generation.

One-click installation

Using a cloud infrastructure, SYSPRO’s Software + Services deploy methodology will enable SYSPRO 7 to be installed easily and remotely with just one click, and allow organizations to run SYSPRO in a WAN/LAN environment efficiently whilst also providing greater control over security and firewall settings across the network and/or Internet.

“For years, one of the strongest recurring statements by our customers has been that SYSPRO solutions seem like they’ve been purpose-built for each customer. With the new SYSPRO 7 capabilities, companies will now be able to gain even more productivity improvements for widest-possible employee use. We are always looking to help our customers achieve the very best bottom line results possible using our system,” concludes Brian Stein, CEO of SYSPRO USA.

SYSPRO ERP CERTIFIED AND VALIDATED BY THIRD-PARTY EVALUATION FIRMS

The SYSPRO solution has received multiple industry and technology validations and awards over its successful 30-year history. Most recently, Technology Evaluation Centers certified the SYSPRO ERP solution in 2012 and praised the company’s support for “real world business processes.”

According to TEC Research Analyst, Aleksey Osintsev, “The SYSPRO software can be a worthy acquisition for small and medium manufacturing and distribution companies operating in multiple vertical industry sectors, and especially those whose business is more complex, requires multistage processes and includes multi-site production, delivery and customer service. SYSPRO ERP can also be a valuable asset for companies that need a highly detailed and dynamic business process modeling instrument in order to precisely understand their business, determine directions for improvement and easily align them together.”

The company’s adherence to developing technology based on the needs of customers is among the reasons why SYSPRO enjoys one of the highest customer retention rates in the industry. Follow SYSPRO on:

The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology.

In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists will addresses this very serious issue of profound change in the industry.
"People are a lot more knowledgeable about APIs now. There are two types of people who work with APIs - IT people who want to use APIs for something internal and the product managers who want to do something outside APIs for people to connect to them," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at SOA Software, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at Cloud Expo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

2015 predictions circa 1970: houses anticipate our needs and adapt, city infrastructure is citizen and situation aware, office buildings identify and preprocess you. Today smart buildings have no such collective conscience, no shared set of fundamental services to identify, predict and synchronize around us. LiveSpace and M2Mi are changing that. LiveSpace Smart Environment devices deliver over the M2Mi IoT Platform real time presence, awareness and intent analytics as a service to local connected devices. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Sarah Cooper, VP Business of Development at M2Mi, will d...

But despite the buzz, some very real business questions emerged – mainly, not if a device can be connected, or even when, but why? Why does connecting to the cloud create greater value for the user? Why do connected features improve the overall experience? And why do...
