SYSPRO Upgrade Is Already Paid

Posted by Gerry Poe

Considering Upgrading to SYSPRO 7?

Why consider upgrading and what does it do for your company?  SYSPRO ERP, since Issue 008 was retired, has about 1,200 enhancements. What your current ERP version did for your business and what the latest version will do is the real difference. 


Case Study Research: Syspro 6.1 upgrade ignites Black Cat Fireworks

Black Cat Fireworks is reporting "a quantum leap forward" following a major upgrade to its ERP software, bringing it up to SYSPRO v6.1.

Matthew Broad, Black Cat's IT administrator, states that the company has been using various versions of SYSPRO, from K3, since 1991… he says: "It was high time to make the change, as our existing software was out of date. Clearly, we would benefit from accessing the new features within Syspro 6.1, such as easier integration and the ability to customize reports and create executive views ... about customer orders and stock status."

…he reports that the company can indeed do much more with SYSPRO 6.1 and says it was a good investment, having given the company a flexible and future-proof system that speeds up sales order processing, which was a key requirement for the upgrade.

And, Broad adds, that Black Cat suppliers, including its logistics partners, have also benefited from the upgrade…

This has been of particular benefit to the company's logistics partners who can simply import the order and delivery data into their transport planning systems to help with their scheduling.

Consider the following information and notice a couple of things. First, SYSPRO does not orphan your company if you are on old versions, even though they may have retired your “current” version.  Support, and technical expertise on older versions may be waning, but you can stay there if you wish. Hopefully, we can impart some reasons to consider upgrading.
