Boston, MA, United States, 2011/06/17 - SYSPRO, a global, independent developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, announced today that new materials, cost and cash management capabilities within SYSPRO 6.1 are evolving into US success stories.
Heralded by customers as a "business saver" and a "market maker," a SYSPRO customer related an exemplary success story this week at the Grape Escape® analyst event in Boston.
In mid-2010, SYSPRO announced the software breakthrough release with 6 new modules and more than 1,500 new feature, functionality and deployment enhancements designed to navigate and propel small and mid-sized manufacturers and distributors through challenging market conditions. Packed with new visibility, analytical, decision-making and workflow supports, the new release has increased customer uptake 25% higher than anticipated by SYSPRO management and driving SYSPRO into deals with larger organizations.
Dubbed the "Einstein Strategy" by a customer in a phone call to management, the phrase has since been adopted by SYSPRO USA executives as its 2011+ go-to-market strategy. The company is leading its sales and marketing initiatives with Einstein Strategy customer proof points, attesting to its powerful materials, cost and cash management capabilities, which are cited as "SYSPRO=MC2."
At the Grape Escape event, SYSPRO showcased customer Phyllis Durmire, an IT director for paper manufacturer/distributor VonDrehle Corporation. Durmire recently moved to her present post from another highly satisfied SYSPRO ERP deployed manufacturing customer.
"In my opinion, SYSPRO is the best operational software for small and mid-sized manufacturers that are dialed into taking their businesses forward and reacting quickly and effectively to market dynamics," Durmire said. "There are larger ERP providers with huge customer bases – but no one I've seen better understands the small/mid-sized business (SMB) space and provides the richness and value of ERP software for companies like ours. We can see exactly where our business is, analyze and change business processes and become more competitive. Beyond that, there is this company intangible of always feeling like we have a true partnership with SYSPRO."
S=MC2...Expanded Materials, Cost Controls and Cash Management for SYSPRO Customers
Following the mid-2010 launch of powerful and multi-part SYSPRO Version 6.1, the company's growing base of newly-deployed users began reporting success stories tied to the materials management, cost controls and cash management capabilities in particular. Recognizing these as current drivers to customer success under challenging economic and market conditions, SYSPRO expanded and accelerated programs and capabilities supporting these three areas:
• Expanded Materials/Inventory Supports: targeting material yield; inventory visibility/optimization; make-to-order/ make-to-stock decision support; power tailored dashboard visibility and reporting by roles and combined manufacturing/distribution controls.
• Expanded Cost Controls: enriched KPI-embedded cost-drivers, new compare/contrast vendor analysis, new power analysis features to perform "what-if" decisions (with rapid view radio dial results) and green footprint supports.
• Expanded Cash management: new tool supports for short and long-term cash scenarios; enhanced visibility of internal/external views on cash usage and inventory redeployment; reaction-centric hot links to financial institutions to respond quickly to cash balances, credit or debt-related changes, etc.
