The support is great and they are always enhancing the product. Our CRR is awesome and very helpful.
The manufacturing side is great and the BOM function works very well with formulas and batching in the food industry. The lot functions and traceability is great as well.

Likes Least

Having to upgrade our custom modifications every time there is a major release. This is self-inflicted somewhat.. but it keeps us behind in the upgrade cycle. And the custom programming is expensive!

Recommendations

Try to avoid custom modifications if you can, it's difficult to upgrade and expensive with having to have the custom mods re-compiled every time.

we chose Syspro just as we were merging 2 manufacturing companies with 7 manufacturing facilities in 3 states. The flexibility allowed us to complete this merger and keep all the financials and manufacturing data separated. the open database of SQL allows reporting with any software that can read sql. We have been on the software 8 years and SYSPRO has constantly stayed current with the latest developments in the IT area.

We have been using Syspro software for approximately 12 years and have been very satisfied. Software and database upgrades have been excellent.

Syspro has excellent flexibility. By choosing specific options in the program setup, we can adjust the software to do what we want rather than having to adjust our operations to the software. I appreciate how Syspro listens to its users for product enhancements.

Likes Least

It would be nice if the program came with some basic financial reports. Of course they would need to be modified, but a basic report would be a nice start.

Recommendations

Ask about the product's flexibility. Don't assume that the program will operate the way that you need it to. Document your workflow and be sure that you will be able to process work the way that you want / need to.

My favorite feature of Syspro is that it uses Microsoft SQL to manage my data. This allows me to access my data using custom SQL queries and gives me the ability to create dynamic reports and tools that help me manage various aspects of our company, eliminate wasteful processes and alleviate burden from our teams.

The user interface hasn't changed much over the years, however, after attending Syspro's latest User Conference, I am encouraged to see that they will be making huge improvements for the user's experience.

Recommendations

Stay current with updates because new features are always being deployed. We are a version behind and planning our next migration.

I strongly believe the SYSPRO ERP is a powerful solution, able to perform functions well beyond what most users will require of the system. What I like most about the system is, if initially set-up properly, the ability to query data that meets any company's reporting requirements. You can use Access, Crystal Reports and even dump list views into Excel.

Most companies are different, in some way, shape or form. It's hard for software developers to iron out all wants and needs. I feel SYSPRO overall listens and cares about what their system can provide and is easy to work with to help find solutions that fit your business. I highly respect their California development and support teams. They've always been responsive to our needs.

I think what we like least about the software are some of their stock and non-stock features. As an example, some of the pain points for our business was ATP (Available to Promise), MRP, Landed Cost Tracking and EDI, to name a few. We currently do not use ATP or MRP as they are written, because it doesn't fit our business. Landed Cost Tracking is a great tool, when set-up properly. EDI is also a great tool but unfortunately this product generally ties into their shipping solution, which is basically a third party solution. We continually struggling with EDI Shipping Solution, basically due to this "add-on".

In addition, forget about "stock" reporting. The report are not very useful. The good thing is that it is easy enough to query data to your liking to make and create your own reporting.

Recommendations

Determine your current "pain points". Why do you need a new ERP? For EDI? ATP? Bills of Material (BOM)? Know what your company requires before doing your due diligence! Then, when talking to SYSPRO, ensure they understand it is you require. Have them show how their system could work for you! If you choose SYSPRO, make sure you fully understand what is involved in the initial data set-up/imports. Their import templates are lengthy and "foreign", if you haven't actually worked in the system on a regular basis. It is CRITICAL to get these imports right! I would also suggest classroom training vs. online training. You'll need a more hands-on experience to really know the system, in my opinion.

I like how flexible the product is. You can add a number of additional modules on depending on what you are looking for. The Syspro support and sales team are great to work with. They make you feel like a part of a community. It does not have a big box software company feel.

Likes Least

The system takes a bit of time to train on. It is not very intuitive but once you get it figured out you can move through it fairly easy.

Recommendations

I would recommend spending time on training and working with the Syspro teams to setup and configure the system to best meet the needs of your company.
