SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, has announced that SYSPRO ERP user, Columbia Manufacturing, has again been honored by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine in the publication's November/December issue for outstanding green and sustainability practices. This newest award is the latest in a list of green leadership awards garnered by Columbia, which credits the company's utilization of SYSPRO ERP software as a key factor in the company's ability to adopt green sustainability practices.

Ali Salehi, Columbia Manufacturing Sr. Vice President, references the ways SYSPRO software functionality has been instrumental to the establishment of Columbia's green practices, noting,"We could not operate without SYSPRO.

"This is a very cyclical business," he says. "The schools get out in May and June, and they want their products in the very short window of July 1 thru Labor Day. Therefore, we get a huge demand in an 8 – 12 week period. SYSPRO functionality, however, expedites material resource planning and purchasing while SYSPRO forecasting, enables, as it were, our ability to ‘see the future' so we can regulate our purchase of chemicals, water usage, electricity and all the items related to our manufacturing of school furniture.

"For example," he says,"SYSPRO data contributed to our plating operation's water usage reduction -- from 150,000 gallons per day to 3,000 gallons per day -- also reducing chrome usage by 93% and nickel purchases by 75%." Columbia's environmental safeguards also include the recycling of all waste steel, corrugation, wood and trash. The latter goes to a plant, where it's converted into fuel cells for power plants.

Salehi points out that Columbia has been utilizing SYSPRO ERP software since 2004, selected on the recommendation of a search committee tasked with seeking a replacement to the company's incumbent, outdated ERP system. SYSPRO was the choice from a field of 15 candidates. "We found SYSPRO to be the most adaptive to the nature of our business and unsurpassed for flexibility, ease of use and training," says Salehi.

The following is a list of Columbia's environmental achievements, many of which were facilitated utilizing SYSPRO ERP software:

• Elimination of 100% of all V.O.C.'s with a painting operation that is 100% powder coating.
• Reduction of water usage from 150,000 gallons/day to 3,000 gallons/day.
• Using 100% recycled wood flour in hard plastic seats, backs and tops.
• Using up to 25% recycled post industrial products in soft plastic components.
• Recycling 100% of excess wood products and pallets.
• Recycling 100% cardboard and paper products.
• Recycling 100% of scrap steel.
• Recycled wood and paper products are converted to fuel cell cubes replacing coal in power generator plants.
