SYSPRO 7 ERP Upgrade Checklist - Evaluating Enterprise Software Needs & Readiness

Posted by Gerry Poe

whats-it-take-to-upgrade-erp.jpgIt has been said “necessity is the mother of invention” which leads us to make enterprise software upgrades with a “wait until there is a problem” mindset. This only makes sense if you think “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” shows wisdom and foresight.


Waiting for when things are “broke” or an emergency will result in high costs, untrustworthy fixes, and decisions that will have a long-term negative impact. Many issues lie under the surface and unobvious to a less experienced enterprise management team. Cash flow, revenue growth, waste, warehouse efficiencies, the speed of customer service, and inventory accuracy are but a few areas impacted.

Frankenstein software monsters are created when new software is invented and attached to an old system. Systems already broken may not appear to be so.

i.e. Your accounting department is running off of a stand-alone accounting package; your sales team is using a separate CRM, and your inventory is tracked in Access or Excel.

Syspro on the iPad

Posted by Gerry Poe

SYSPRO can now be used on the iPad or iPhone.  ERP software is not limited as some believe it to be.  To be on the cutting edge, it may require a strong will to grab hold of the antiquated ERP software and toss it out the window.  The cost of miscommunication, poor cash flow, 5 versions of truth and poor customer service can turn instead into peace of mind, better security and turn a marginal team into one that exceeds expectations. 

If the team has the right ERP software system which is scalable along with an experienced leader in the industry, then the "old ways" of struggle can be put in the past.

It may seem a little odd to see a 30 year old software company on the cutting edge and leading the way with flexible systems which are not only tailored to the needs of a business but now makes the claim to be accessible any time, any place, anywhere.

Businesses need to know how frequently to purcure and produce, when to order, and from whom. MRP, a component of ERP, is your on-board Material PHd.

MRP system looks at all included demand criterion, calculates supplies needed by when and from whom. This "psychic ability" comes from the system's connections associated to anything material and outsourced operations (sub-contractors). Then MRP creates "pegging" to support the supplies sourced from all demands included.

Enterprise Technology Performance Benefits of SQL Server

Posted by Gerry Poe

enterprise tools sql serverBenefits of SQL Server 

Why is it important to keep your enterprise and server software up to date? Lags in product technology can cost you in unseen ways. What if your enterprise systems could be 20% (or more) faster? What does this do for your bottom line? If your server architectures are running on 32-bit versus 64-bit technology, what does the environment cost the company?  Costs can be measured in terms of speed and enterprise performance. User satisfaction is one factor; however, enterprise throughput is perhaps your key profit benefit.

Here are a few discussion points you may like to have with your technical staff. Given that, technically, the software works on older versions of SQL Server seemingly well; upgrading may take your "enterprise bandwidth" to a higher level, which may be just what was missing.
