Wisconsin-Based Battery Manufacturer/Distributor Opts for SYSPRO Over Sage and Epicor to Enhance Operational Efficiencies

COSTA MESA, Calif. - October 16, 2012 - SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that Fedco Electronics, a Fond du Lac, Wisconsin-based manufacturer and distributor of batteries and battery packs for computers, industrial controls, utility meters, portable devices and other equipment, has selected SYSPRO ERP to enhance operational efficiencies.

According to Fedco President Stephen Victor, problems with the production modules of the company's incumbent software, purchased in 1986, forced Fedco Electronics to seek a new, more reliable solution. He reports that the company narrowed the choice of a new ERP software solution to SYSPRO, Sage and Epicor. After speaking with the references provided by each of the three companies, the choice was SYSPRO. "The companies we spoke to regarding SYSPRO had great things to report," says Victor. We also liked the looks of the SYSPRO screens, as well as the numerous user-friendly features of the software." He quickly adds, "We were also highly impressed with the local SYSPRO reseller, Business Technology Partners of Deerfield, IL."

Victor also lauded the reporting capabilities inherent in the SYSPRO solution. "Now," he says, "when we run a promotion on one of product lines, with the click of the mouse, we will be able to see who bought what as well as the purchase amount."

Victor summarizes the company's choice of SYSPRO: "With SYSPRO, we'll be able to gain more information on our business to help us better manage the business."
