About Kevin Dherman

I am a Product Development Manager at SYSPRO, and have been at the company since 1999. My passion for software development started at a very young age. Along with my team, I spend most of my time doing research and development – where I am responsible for investigating new technologies, integration strategies and development. Before joining SYSPRO I worked at a SYSPRO customer, where I developed add-on programs, reports and a fully functional Kan-Ban system. I have been involved with the architecture and development of e.net Solutions, SYSPRO Reporting Services, SYSPRO Office Integration and recently SYSPRO Workflow Services. I have always believed in choosing the right technology at the right time – where the success of the modules that I have developed are testament to this. I often work closely with the Microsoft development team in Redmond, whilst in the RND stages of a new module. I have lectured at numerous Microsoft Tech-Ed and Microsoft Developer Days too. I am an avid Manchester United supporter and enjoy watching the English Premiership. I also coach both my son’s junior soccer teams.
