"SYSPRO Continues to Bring Strategic Value to Its Customers," says TEC
COSTA MESA, Calif. – November 12, 2013 - SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that Technology Evaluation Centers (TEC) has certified SYSPRO 7, the newest release of SYSPRO ERP software.
Says TEC, "SYSPRO 7 is now certified in multiple TEC enterprise resource planning (ERP) software models: ERP for discrete manufacturing, ERP for process manufacturing, and ERP for mixed-mode manufacturing."
TEC continues: “SYSPRO ERP software, SYSPRO 7, has been comprehensively tested and accepted by a large number of existing SYSPRO customers in multiple business areas. These customers have concluded that changes made to the software have been greatly anticipated and demanded by the user community. All improvements to the product can be divided into these major categories:
1. New customization and role-based optimization capabilities—with a tiles-based user interface similar to the Windows 8 concept, improved navigation using a new dashboard-based navigation menu, and new themes and flow graphs that simplify the interface for the end user.
2. Newly added functional features—rapid sales order entry, a new Web-based product configurator, and quotation versioning.
3. SYSPRO Espresso mobile solution—allows for personalization and customization for most popular mobile devices.
4. SYSPRO-developed industry-specific layout templates—to be used by companies operating in certain vertical markets: food and beverage, medical devices, electronics, and machinery and equipment. Organizations therefore use the same existing functionality but have precustomized screen layouts that meet their industry-specific needs.
5. Efficient implementation—SYSPRO’s Quantum Architecture is a model-based approach to implementation which makes implementing and maintaining the system much easier. You can model how your business works and then import that model into the software. The modeling can be done at any stage of the SYSPRO life cycle, and processes can be reviewed and updated as and when the business needs to change.
6. SYSPRO 7 provides with extended scalability—enabling not only mid-market businesses, but also larger companies to make use of the software. This extension has been accomplished through increased transactional speed, increased number of available transaction values, keys, and fields, as well as reduced installation and upgrades time.
7. SYSPRO Reporting Services (SRS) capability enhancements—are accomplished by optimized algorithms of server side processing, simplified external data inserting, and higher-quality reports and graphs. Interestingly enough, reports and graphs can be accessed via Microsoft Outlook on any device, and no SYSPRO Client installation and license consumption is required.”
TEC summarizes SYSPRO market pluses: “SYSPRO is a well-known ERP brand nowadays. The fast facts are as follows:
- The company has 35 years of experience in the ERP software industry.
- SYSPRO has more than 15,000 customers overall operating in 62 countries.
- SYSPRO ERP is delivered, implemented, and supported through a network of more than 1,600 Channel & Support Partners.
- SYSPRO's customer retention rate is very high—about 98%; similar numbers also reflect the SYSPRO staff retention rate.
Concludes TEC: "SYSPRO's core customer relations principles remain the same: make the customer happy, a happy customer builds a good reputation, and a good reputation brings margins. And this is a very positive quality for a business software vendor. As SYSPRO is a private company and is not rigidly tied with quarterly profit responsibilities, it has a long-term perspective of bringing strategic value to its customers through deep knowledge of the client’s business and customer-centric development and support.
TEC Research Analyst Aleksey Osintsev says, “I have confidence that the SYSPRO 7 solution has great potential for, and is worthy of, being in a selection shortlist of various manufacturing or distribution companies worldwide.” Read the full TEC Blog post here.
