COSTA MESA, Calif. - April 22, 2009 -- SYSPRO, a leading, worldwide provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, announced today that the company is one of three finalists named for "Software Company of the Year" by the Technology Council of Southern California. The award, based primarily on industry leadership and "excellence in innovation," also recognizes local involvement and social responsibilities, as well as commitment to macro issues such as "green" environmental initiatives.

SYSPRO was one of the first companies to pioneer a 'green' solution, when it introduced the SYSPRO Material Yield System which enables cut-shape suppliers to reclaim remnants for future use, saving them from landfills. Today, SYSPRO's 'green' leadership is embodied by its "Project Green Enable," a program focused across three dimensions: Waste Reduction and efficiencies; Recyclable/Re-Use of Resources and Energy Efficiency.

SYSPRO is an active participant in industry associations and was a winner of the "Software Company of the Year" award in 2004. The company has consistently remained profitable and has never experienced an employee layoff.

This latest honor follows a string of awards recently presented to SYSPRO:

  • SYSPRO Named a Top Ten 2009 ERP Vendor by

  • START-IT Magazine named SYSPRO Customer, Chocolate Potpourri, "Manufacturer of the Year - Mid-Market Category"

Joey Benadretti, President, SYSPRO USA, noted, "This latest award is yet another affirmation that SYSPRO solutions are 'setting the pace,' enabling small-and-medium-size [SMB] manufacturers and distributors to successfully compete by 'leaning and greening' their operations and why SYSPRO customer retention is among the highest in the industry."

An example of SYSPRO ground-breaking innovations over the last year include: The introduction of the SYSPRO "Power Tailoring Bundle" introducing new ways to customize the SYSPRO software User Interface to enhance user productivity levels, further decision making and elevate security;

The roll out of "financial health" software that includes out of the box Financial Ratio Analysis and financial Executive Dashboards enabling SMB manufacturers and distributors to gain insight into their company's "health" by measuring critical profitability and liquidity factors;

Document Management, a cost-effective, "green-minded" solution set that enables mid-market manufacturers to gain new cost and time efficiencies while addressing regulatory compliance mandates;

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.
