SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that SYSPRO Espresso, the SYSPRO mobile solution, is the subject of a new Mint Jutras report,"Can SYSPRO Put A Genius in a Manufacturing Executive's Pocket."
In the report, author Cindy Jutras, President of Mint Jutras, points out that a recent SNAP (SYSPRO Needs Answers Please) Survey found a "growing recognition of the impact IT has on a manufacturer's ability to compete." In the past, says Mint Jutras, manufacturers might have chosen an investment in facilities, people and equipment instead of enterprise software as the tools to enhance the company's competitive stance. However, says the Jutras report, the SNAP survey is indicative that "manufacturers now need new tools to manage . . . profitable growth."
Mint Jutras states that in 2013, the analyst firm noted that executive access to ERP was on the rise. This trend has continued, says the report, noting that mobile access, such as SYSPRO Espresso, and the added intelligence it can provide executives, may "just serve as the catalyst and the game-changer." Still, notes the report, while a study indicates that 32% want access to business intelligence from their chosen device (BYOD) ". . . what seems to get lost in the shuffle: many don't realize most data from which they are likely to derive that intelligence resides in ERP."
The Mint Jutras report lists the strong advantages enabled by the SYSPRO 7 Espresso Mobile Solution. "SYSPRO has taken many steps to insure that SYSPRO 7 Espresso provides a 'leading edge' solution without losing sight of what manufacturers and distributors really need." The paper lists the following as the components of SYSPRO Espresso that make it a "strong platform:"
• Device and platform independence
• Users can personalize their user interface
• Real-time or offline access
• Secure communication
• Enable alerts to be sent via push notifications
• Uses active tile technology
• Multi-lingual support
• Mobile applications packaged with Espresso and via the SYSPRO App Store.
