SYSPRO, a leading, worldwide provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has today revealed that Higginson Equipment, a Burlington, Ontario-based manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic NFPA-style cylinders and a distributor of fluid power and industrial product lines, reports that SYSPRO software has enabled the company to boost productivity by approximately 30 percent and enhance competitive industry positioning while maintaining the same employee head count.
Higginson installed SYSPRO ERP software in 2009 to replace outdated, incumbent software and help the company ride out the effects of the current economic recession. In addition, the company felt that a new, integrated ERP solution would enable it to fully leverage future opportunities.
According to Higginson Equipment President Bill Allan, SYSPRO software has enabled the company to automate numerous functions, maximize order desk efficiency via utilization of the SYSPRO Product Configurator and facilitate the integration of office productivity tools, such as Microsoft Outlook, electronic faxing and remote connectivity.
"SYSPRO has made us much more efficient," says Allan. "We used to have to do an Excel spread sheet for every job and calculate cut-lengths of different materials. Now we just put the model number in, and SYSPRO calculates everything for us...I would definitely recommend SYSPRO to any manufacturer."
