SYSPRO ERP Solution Gaining Industry Recognition

SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP for the manufacturing pragmatist, today announced the company is continuing to gain an increasing volume of technology industry recognition from leading analyst firms. Most recently, the company has appeared in a question-and-answer style report from Technology Evaluation Centers featuring SYSPRO's early adoption of service-oriented architecture (SOA). The company's pragmatic, yet visionary "PragmaVision"(TM) solution positioning, praised recently by more than six industry firms, is also referenced alongside of the company's commitment to quality service.

Titled, "A Veteran Mid-market ERP Vendor with a Pragmatic Vision Chimes In," the Q&A session is the third in a series of Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) reports and blogs on SYSPRO. It is designed to enable TEC subscribers to gain "a better understanding of where SYSPRO has been and where this veteran mid-market enterprise resource planning (ERP) vendor is headed," according to the report.

Prefacing the Q&A session, TEC's Predrag Jakovljevic notes that "SYSPRO has many good things going for it:

-- A strong, feature-rich, vertically focused and proven product suite, bundled with a globally applicable structured implementation methodology and all at a manageable cost for the customer.

-- The choice, without force, of more conservative technology options for its more conservative smaller mid-market manufacturer and distributor users, but also really good .NET- and service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based stuff for the future-thinking, 'show me the cool stuff' buyer.

-- A 'power tailoring bundle' that allows users to tailor their interfaces to SYSPRO products, including highly personalized views that resemble 'homegrown' software, and complete access via the standard Microsoft Office product environment.

-- A proven sales and implementations partnership model that lets the company expand much more rapidly than a direct sales force ever could.

-- An obsession with making the customer happy--at any cost--SYSPRO is the epitome of over-service even if it hurts the bottom line. Consequently, the vendor can boast an outstanding retention rate and exceptional customer service."

The Q&A session focuses on SYSPRO's evolutionary, as opposed to revolutionary, approach to software upgrades, the company's early adoption of SOA, its philosophy of delivering exemplary customer service through a VAR channel, the industry leading SYSPRO software implementation methodology and the company's PragmaVision(TM) marketplace positioning.

Joey Benadretti, president SYSPRO USA, notes, "The recognition by leading industry analysts boldly reflects SYSPRO's expanding leadership role in the SMB market. We have continually evolved our ERP software offering to meet the pragmatic needs of SMB manufacturers and distributors. We continue to place significant emphasis on maintaining the highest levels of customer service as a further differential in today's highly challenging economic climate."

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.
