Benadretti Honored for Fifth Consecutive Year

COSTA MESA, Calif. – March 7, 2014 -- SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that SYSPRO USA President Joey Benadretti has been named one of CRN's 2014 Channel Chiefs. This prestigious list of the most powerful leaders in the IT channel recognizes those executives directly responsible for driving channel sales and growth within their organization, while evangelizing the importance of the channel throughout the entire IT Industry.

CRN Channel Chiefs were selected by the CRN editorial team based on channel experience, program innovations, channel-driven revenue, and public support for the importance of IT channel sales.

Benadretti was honored for his ongoing commitment to the SYSPRO channel and for continually enhancing the award-winning SYSPRO Reseller Program. He has added numerous benefits for the channel, including expanded company/VAR communications, additional educational sessions, enhanced marketing support and other resources to obtain qualified leads. Benadretti, in fact, was co-author of the SYSPRO "Power Drivers" -- a strategy to guide VARs in business conduct, planning, growth and achievements.

Benadretti also is a member of several organizations whose missions include urging the US Congress to implement policies that promote US manufacturing growth.

A firm believer in education, Benadretti was also named "UCI Mentor of the Year" in 2013 for his mentoring achievements at the University of California at Irvine.

"SYSPRO sells its Enterprise Resource Planning software primarily through a reseller channel, and we are continually seeking ways to enhance our channel program to sustain it as the industry standard," said Benadretti, noting that SYSPRO strategic business partners accelerate their success by combining their expertise with that of SYSPRO.

"We are pleased to highlight the many executives throughout the industry who work tirelessly to advance the standing of the channel community within their organizations. The CRN Channel Chief honorees lead, inspire and engage peers and serve as valuable advocates to help ensure the health and longevity of the channel within the IT industry. We applaud their efforts and look forward to their continued success," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.

SYSPRO's single product offering, a world class, fully integrated supply chain solution, enables SYSPRO resellers to build successful, viable businesses with an industry leading product for manufacturers and distributors.

SYSPRO resellers also have ready access to marketing, sales and technical support, ongoing education, marketing assistance, knowledge driven conferences, sales leads and the award-winning SYSPRO Implementation Methodology.
