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 has been named a recipient of the 2013 "Supply & Demand Chain Executive Green Supply Chain Awards."

The 2013 Green Supply Chain Awards recognize companies making green or sustainability a core part of their supply chain strategy and are working to achieve measurable sustainability goals within their own operations and/or supply chains in the areas of Sourcing/Procurement, Fulfillment/Logistics, Operations, Product Lifecycle Management, and other areas of the supply chain.

The awards also recognize providers of supply chain solutions and services assisting their customers in achieving measurable sustainability goals. Submissions were judged based on the clarity and content of the goals and strategy (30 percent), the extent of the steps being taken (30 percent), the impact of the results to date and projected results (30 percent), and the form and presentation of the information submitted (10 percent).

"Leading companies recognize that initiating sustainable practices in their supply chain processes is key towards driving their competitive edge in today's recovering economy," said Barry Hochfelder, Editor, Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "This has been increasingly evident over the past few years and is relatively clear with the increased number of entries we received this year for our annual green awards. The increased adoption of green best practices and strategies will only continue to grow."

SYSPRO was recognized for the ways SYSPRO ERP software enables mid-market manufacturing and distribution entities to cut costs, save time, drive revenues and improve their carbon footprint in the areas of product lifecycle management (PLM), order demand capture, sourcing, technology and integration infrastructure, procurement and other areas of the supply chain.

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 . . . SYSPRO functionality . . . expedites material resource planning and purchasing while SYSPRO inventory 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.
