SYSPRO POINT OF SALE ENABLES MANUFACTURERS & DISTRIBUTORS TO GAIN NEW RETAILING EDGE
BOSTON -- JUNE 28, 2012 -- SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today the immediate availability of a new point-of-sale (POS) retailing solution that provides a wide variety of retailing management and market capabilities. The announcement was made today at the annual Grape Escape analyst event in Boston, attended by 27 of the world’s leading enterprise software analysts.
Called SYSPRO Point of Sale, the new solution is built on single source code under-pinning SYSPRO’s powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) software that is in use by more than 14,500 companies worldwide. SYSPRO Point of Sale contains more than a dozen new features/functions useful for managing everything from ordering, through inventory management and transit and on the front-end the transactions, daily/period cash-outs and card-based customer loyalty programs. SYSPRO Point of Sale is an ideal match for SYSPRO ERP companies that are improving their margins by cutting reliance on intermediary companies and managing the end-to-end manufacturing/distribution/retailing chain independently.
“SYSPRO has a large number of smaller and mid-sized companies that, like SYSPRO, compete against multi-billion dollar competitors, yet grow and thrive because they offer better, specialized and/or unique capabilities,” said Brian Stein, CEO of SYSPRO USA. “One of the foundational ways for achieving success is to be smarter about targeting areas where you can deliver solutions yourself end-to-end and cut out profit-sapping (and often inferior) ‘middle men.’ SYSPRO is delivering a single-code, highly integratable enterprise software solution, versus trying to bolt on extensions like so many other ERP companies. It gives us better control of our own operations, and it similarly advantages our customers and partners. This is a great tool for companies who want to reap the quality, control and margin benefits resulting from managing their own production through sales cycles.”
SYSPRO management further explains that the new point-of-sale solution benefits manufacturers and distributors with complex pricing configurations, such as found in the electronics, machinery and equipment, food and medical device sectors -- industries where SYSPRO has deep vertical market presence. “This is about empowerment from a visibility, analysis and cost and cash-related decision-making standpoint,” Stein explains. “A high percentage of SYSPRO customers are both manufacturers and retailers, like Apple distributor Core Computer Business. We’re simplifying the complexities involved in the entire order through sale cycle.”
