New TechVentive Report Aligns SYSPRO with Electronic Sector Needs.

COSTA MESA, Calif. - February 24, 2009 -- SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP for the manufacturing pragmatist, today announced that the company is the subject of a new TechVentive special report that details how SYSPRO software is addressing the specific needs of small and mid-sized electronics manufacturers. The new TechVentive report, entitled "What Electronics Tech Buyers Need," is now available and can be viewed at:

According to the TechVentive report, the concerns of smaller electronic firms are many: rapid product obsolescence; high product development and capital costs; price pressures; quality control; and emerging concerns on financial compliancy, traceability and regulations that may change with the new Obama administration.

"SYSPRO offers a number of advantages, including regulatory compliance functionality that may come in handy for smaller electronics firms that hope to go public or be acquired by a larger, publicly traded firm," says Brian Sommer, president of TechVentive. "SYSPRO supports Sarbanes-Oxley and other requirements out of the box. Given the size of the company and the successes it has secured already in the space, we believe SYSPRO should be on the short list of many electronics technology selections."

TechVentive states that electronic firms need software that does the needed (pragmatic) functions, as well as visionary solutions that bend, flex and adapt to the chaotic, global business environment. SYSPRO's "PragmaVision â„¢ " philosophy dictates that SYSPRO ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software enables customers to successfully compete under current market conditions, while also providing them with an evolutionary growth path.

In addition to standard ERP functionality, the report indicates that interviews with electronic firms specifically cite modules such as Lot Traceability and Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) to be of particular value, but only if they are fully integrated within the product suite architecture. The report also recommends that electronic firms choose an ERP solution with a SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) platform in order to connect their systems to those of their supply chains and value chain partners.

"Without a flexible architecture, the cost and time required to make these frequent connections would be excessive," Sommer says.

Joey Benadretti, president, SYSPRO USA, adds, "In addition to all the functionality outlined in the TechVentive report, SYSPRO also offers differential functionality that enables smaller and medium size electronics manufacturers to successfully compete with the giants in the industry. For example, SYSPRO's Web-rules-based Product Configurator enables these electronics manufacturers to compete by assembling standard parts into custom configurations to fulfill the exacting specifications of customers."

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,"â„¢ consisting of pragmatic, visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but aggressive market growth.
