darren_optimizing_workflowA few weeks ago, myself and one of my colleagues travelled to Johannesburg to catch up with the Emerging Technologies team at SYSPRO.  Our primary goal was to get up-to-speed with the latest developments in SYSPRO Workflow in SYSPRO 7 and gain an appreciation of how SYSPRO’s implementations of Workflow in South Africa are significantly impacting their manufacturing and distribution businesses for the better.

ERP at Your Service

Posted on 18 June 2015 by Tiffany Gierke

tiffany_erp_at_your_serviceIf you haven’t heard about Uber, I am going to make the assumption that you have been living under a rock, or less dramatically, live and work on the outskirts of the city.
