The Sweet Side of ERP Mobility for the Sales Force

Posted on 3 December 2015 by Paulo de Matos

paulo_sweet_side-of_erp_mobility.jpgI’m beginning to think that the world can be separated into two distinct groups: those who Candy Crush and those who don’t. I, for one, fall into the never-have-probably-never-will category. Although I haven’t succumbed I have been advised by reliable sources that it is a hugely popular and seemingly addictive downloadable game.

Staying agile in an uncertain world

Posted on 18 December 2014 by Simon Griffiths


We are living in a world of change and uncertainty. In 2014, Harvard Business Review published research that showed that uncertainty has increased in the last 50 years, and that some industries are more affected by it. Of the top ten industries facing the most uncertainty, eight are manufacturing industries.

There is a military term now used by business to characterize the challenges of change - VUCA - which was discussed in a previous blog post. VUCA stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. Another acronym (also originating from the military) provides guidance on how to deal with a VUCA world.

Favorite SYSPRO Espresso apps

Posted on 2 December 2014 by Cathie Hall

cathie_mobile_vs_laptopThose that know me well, know my reputation for being “the lady with the laptop.”  There are numerous photographs of me with the laptop seemingly surgically attached: the middle of a field on Scout Camp, whilst washing clothes on the Serbian Scout Jamboree, even in my Wedding Dress.  When K3 Syspro took part in the UK National 3 Peaks Challenge, my laptop came too; if I go away for a weekend with the kids, the laptop is the first thing in the car.

When a business implements SYSPRO, they often choose to implement other software tools available in the market too, with the aim of enhancing the solution and maximising the business’s return on its investment.

Posted on 28 May 2014 by Shaun Butler

mobile ERP solution

In my previous post, I touched on why the mobile evolution plays an important role in the ERP realm and how businesses can benefit from deploying mobile ERP. Companies in the Asia-Pacific region, in particular, have the vantage point to be early adopters and lead this next evolution.

Equally important is the deployment of the right solution and one that can meet the requirements of your company's salesforce team. Choose the wrong tool and your expensive implementation will end up nothing more than a paperweight.

Putting ERP in the palm of your hand

Posted on 3 April 2014 by Shaun Butler

ERP in the palm of your hand

Fifteen years ago, it would have been tough to believe a little device no bigger than your palm would have enough computer power to not only render high-definition videos, but also be able to secure sensitive data with the swipe of a finger and provide access to your corporate network.

Oh, and you would also be able to make phone calls with it.

Today smartphones and mobile devices have evolved so quickly that they are now little offices that you can access anytime, anywhere.
