Kevin Dherman is a Product Development Manager at SYSPRO, and has been at the company since 1999. His passion for software development started at a very young age, where he has evolved into a key software engineer/ architect at SYSPRO. Along with his team, he spends most of his time doing research and development – where he is responsible for investigating new technologies, integration strategies and development.

Before joining SYSPRO he worked at a SYSPRO customer, where he developed add-on programs, reports and is extremely proud of the Kan-Ban system that he developed. Kevin was involved with the architecture and development of e.net Solutions, SYSPRO Reporting Services, SYSPRO Office Integration and recently SYSPRO Workflow Services. Kevin has always believed in choosing the right technology at the right time – where the success of the modules that he has developed are testament to this.

Kevin often works closely with the Microsoft development team in Redmond, whilst in the RND stages of a new module. He is regularly invited to lecture at Microsoft Tech-Ed and Microsoft Developer Days too.

Outside of work he enjoys watching the English Premiership (an avid Manchester United supporter) and coaches both his son’s junior soccer teams.
