SYSPRO Announces New Scalable ERP Release; Empowers Mid-Sized Companies to Embrace New Technologies and Helps Improve Productivity

SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that SYSPRO 7 will be available for general market release in 2013. SYSPRO 7 is all about adapting to the growth requirements of organizations by giving them the scalability, mobility, and enhanced performance they require in today’s ultra-competitive marketplace. In keeping with SYSPRO’s collaborative approach, the new solution is currently in “community preview” to SYSPRO resellers and partners. The announcement was made here at the company’s Winter 2012 analyst roadshow before 32 leading technology analysts.

For more than 30 years, SYSPRO ERP solutions have been known as the “go-to” solution for global mid-market manufacturing organizations requiring a more targeted, better value choice than currently available from industry giants. With each successive release, SYSPRO has demonstrated to industry veterans that its highly flexible and customizable full suite of ERP solutions provides substantial productivity and business growth advantages.

“SYSPRO, as a privately held company with 100% of our focus on satisfying our customer and reseller community (as opposed to the investment community), ensures that our priorities and people are all about achieving customer satisfaction and delivering a high quality solution at a high-return price point,” explains Phil Duff, CEO, SYSPRO. “We have an enviable track record in the ERP market by providing manufacturing organizations globally with the flexibility and customizability they need to differentiate themselves. The release of SYSPRO 7 is the next evolution of our commitment to helping our clients make their business more agile.

“SYSPRO knows what it takes to survive and thrive, we are able to innovate and deliver the market’s very best ERP solutions, and our newest products like SYPSRO 7 continually reflect the changing times, empowering our customers to simply adopt and embrace those new technologies determined by market trends and conditions,” further explains Duff.

Enhanced User Interface and enterprise-wide customization

Leveraging the company’s award-winning flexibility and customization capabilities delivered previously for user roles in Release 6.1, SYSPRO is now expanding its powerful user interface (UI) capabilities. Styled along the lines of Windows 8, SYSPRO 7 brings active tiles and touch capabilities to its enterprise UI, enabling manufacturers and distributors to easily create tailor-fit environments for their SYSPRO solution that will feel and operate with all the advantages of a home-built solution – without the maintenance and upgrade disadvantages.

To support large-scale customization for businesses, the new UI also enables enterprise-wide modifications and themes. The new industry layouts can be particularly helpful for corporate alignment within specific vertical industries, of which the SYSPRO solution is well known for having additional expertise in the food, medical devices, machinery/equipment, electronics and pharmaceuticals/chemicals markets.

SYSPRO 7 responds to improved productivity requirements

Recognizing the necessity among mid-sized manufacturing and distribution companies for faster performance, capacity and volume requirements, SYSPRO 7 provides powerful processing for higher transactional throughput whilst building on SYSPRO’s commitment to being scalable for small through to large enterprises. SYSPRO 7’s mobile platform will also enable easy, anywhere access, and improved reporting capabilities including remote report generation.

One-click installation

Using a cloud infrastructure, SYSPRO’s Software + Services deploy methodology will enable SYSPRO 7 to be installed easily and remotely with just one click, and allow organizations to run SYSPRO in a WAN/LAN environment efficiently whilst also providing greater control over security and firewall settings across the network and/or Internet.

“For years, one of the strongest recurring statements by our customers has been that SYSPRO solutions seem like they’ve been purpose-built for each customer. With the new SYSPRO 7 capabilities, companies will now be able to gain even more productivity improvements for widest-possible employee use. We are always looking to help our customers achieve the very best bottom line results possible using our system,” concludes Brian Stein, CEO of SYSPRO USA.


The SYSPRO solution has received multiple industry and technology validations and awards over its successful 30-year history. Most recently, Technology Evaluation Centers certified the SYSPRO ERP solution in 2012 and praised the company’s support for “real world business processes.”

According to TEC Research Analyst, Aleksey Osintsev, “The SYSPRO software can be a worthy acquisition for small and medium manufacturing and distribution companies operating in multiple vertical industry sectors, and especially those whose business is more complex, requires multistage processes and includes multi-site production, delivery and customer service. SYSPRO ERP can also be a valuable asset for companies that need a highly detailed and dynamic business process modeling instrument in order to precisely understand their business, determine directions for improvement and easily align them together.”


SYSPRO has earned the trust of more than 14,500 companies globally for its suite of visionary software that enhances the competitive thrust of small/mid-sized manufacturers and distributors. The company’s adherence to developing technology based on the needs of customers is among the reasons why SYSPRO enjoys one of the highest customer retention rates in the industry.

Today’s connected world is moving from devices towards things, what this means is that by using increasingly low cost sensors embedded in devices we can create many new use cases. These span across use cases in cities, vehicles, home, offices, factories, retail environments, worksites, health, logistics, and health. These use cases rely on ubiquitous connectivity and generate massive amounts of data at scale. These technologies enable new business opportunities, ways to optimize and automate, along with new ways to engage with users.
The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new data-driven world, marketplaces reign supreme while interoperability, APIs and applications deliver un...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data shows "less than 10 percent of IoT developers are making enough to support a reasonably sized team....
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud.

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
Apps and devices shouldn't stop working when there's limited or no network connectivity. Learn how to bring data stored in a cloud database to the edge of the network (and back again) whenever an Internet connection is available. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate at IBM Cloud Data Services, will demonstrate techniques for replicating cloud databases with devices in order to build offline-first mobile or Internet of Things (IoT) apps that can provide a better, faster user experience, both offline and online.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, will look at different existing uses of peer-to-peer data sharing and how it can become useful in a live session to...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target - this makes the integration of these separate pipelines and the coordination of software upd...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
