COSTA MESA, Calif. - April 23, 2009 -- SYSPRO, a leading, worldwide provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has today announced that Joey Benadretti, SYSPRO USA President, has been recognized by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine on the publication's annual list of Provider Pros to Know. The announcement was made in the February/March 2009 issue of the magazine.

The Provider Pros to Know is a compilation of key individuals from a software firm or service provider, consultancy, or analyst or research firm who have personally helped clients during the current economic downturn by assisting them in managing risk in the supply chain, providing competitive advantage and/or delivering value to the bottom line.

"This year's Provider Pros to Know have helped to enable companies to weather risky economic conditions and place them in a position to surge ahead in better times," Andrew Reese, editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "Their efforts in developing the tools and processes that lead cost efficiency and growth initiatives have earned them a place on this year's Provider Pros listing."

SYSPRO offers software technology for Small and Mid-Size Manufacturing and Distributors (SMB) aimed at helping them to compete with the larger companies in their respective industries. The company recently announced a series of six Power Bundles designed to streamline business processes and drive operational efforts that reduce costs and boost profits. Benadretti also took leadership in 2008 to differentiate SYSPRO as a provider of enterprise technology solutions that are both pragmatic, yet visionary. Benadretti calls this unique SYSPRO vision "PragmaVision."â„¢

"PragmaVision to SYSPRO is not just a marketing concept," Benadretti said. "It is indicative of SYSPRO's more thoughtful approach to adopting new technology, such as web services and SOA platforms, mirroring the desires of its buyers who operate with lean manufacturing concepts and best practices. PragmaVision truly exemplifies SYSPRO's ongoing strategy of helping to simplify the success of its customers."

Benadretti, a recipient of numerous high impact awards, is heavily involved in industry associations, green initiatives and is a major proponent of helping small businesses use technology to compete. Under Benadretti's leadership, SYSPRO has never experienced an employee layoff and has consistently remained profitable. SYSPRO was recently named a finalist for TechAmerica's "Outstanding Private Technology Company" award and for the Technology Council of Southern California "Software Company of the Year" award.
