SYSPRO Competitive Architectural Advantages Benefiting SMB Manufacturers, Distributors

New TEC Paper Underscores Unique Capabilities Facilitating Queries, Data Access

COSTA MESA, Calif. (March 01, 2011) – SYSPRO, the leading provider of visionary, pragmatic ERP software, today announced that SYSPRO’s utilization of Microsoft business solutions and the numerous advantages it offers SMB manufacturers and distributors is the subject of a two-part paper by Predrag PJ Jakovljevic, principal analyst, Technology Evaluation.

The paper, “Mid-market ERP Vendors Leveraging (and Occasionally Outdoing) Microsoft’s ‘Plumbing,'” outlines various Microsoft architectural innovations and the ways in which SYSPRO is successfully utilizing them to benefit SMB users. The paper concludes “I doubt that mid-market ERP vendors have any of the full-fledged EA [Enterprise Architecture] capabilities that SYSPRO now has.”

According to Joey Benadretti, president, SYSPRO USA, “SYSPRO, a Microsoft Gold Partner, has long been leveraging Microsoft architecture to provide SYSPRO users with advanced, innovative methodologies to maximize operational efficiencies. In fact, the company initially developed SYSPRO solutions during the Microsoft .NET beta program, leading a Microsoft executive to refer to SYSPRO as the ‘.NET Poster Child,’ when .NET was released.”

Most recently, learning that SYSPRO had embedded the Microsoft .NET-based Workflow functionality into the SYSPRO ERP solution, Microsoft extended an invitation to SYSPRO to be one of several Technology Adoption Program (TAP) partners.

SYSPRO Workflow Services provides users with an easier way to orchestrate or execute the complex processing of data in a visual form, much like flow charts, but without the need to understand computers or programming. The Workflow solution is deeply embedded in the SYSPRO product. Says Benadretti, “A .NET-based workflow solution is highly advantageous for SMB manufacturers and distributors, enabling greater flexibility, improved process controls and the easy development of .NET associated programs to augment their business processes.
