Posted on 4 August 2017 by Paulo de Matos

paulo_the_future.jpgIt was Benjamin Franklin who so eloquently termed the maxim “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” As an organization, we produce the tools that assist our many customers in avoiding such a fate. But in order to continue delivering innovative, relevant and market leading software, we ourselves need clear insight on market trends and conditions, as well as a well thought out plan for where our offering is heading.

The Bleeding Edge of Technology Part 2

Posted on 3 March 2016 by Al Brough

alistair_bleeding_edge_part_2.jpgIn Part 1, I discussed Moore’s law and the benefits of keeping up with technology in the fast paced evolution of computing power.

To keep your company on the bleeding edge, I highly recommend taking advantage of SYSPRO port updates. These are similar to Windows updates – with every new SYSPRO release you can expect port updates more regularly and as the release reaches a level of stability, the port updates drop to an average of one update per month as the product matures with new features and enhancements.

ERP Support that Counts – Part 2

Posted on 25 August 2015 by Louise Thompson

louise_support_that_counts_2In my last blog I mentioned my home make-over and my feelings about it that range from jubilant to wretched, depending on which day you catch me. This process has once again reinforced my belief that solid relationships are paramount to the success of any endeavor.  I learnt that one of the most important considerations when choosing a contractor is their clear understanding of your vision and your required outcome. The ‘personal touch’ should never be underestimated.

Ensuring good ERP data housekeeping

Posted on 11 August 2015 by Tracey Gates

tracey_good_data_housekeepingDuring my weekly house cleaning routine, I found myself thinking of customers who should be “cleaning” their systems on a regular basis.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a ‘Good Data-Housekeeping Seal of Approval’, but I am quite certain that there ought to be. Many of the five-alarm fires I respond to at the Support Desk could have been avoided with a healthy dash of daily, very basic routine.

Support that Counts

Posted on 6 August 2015 by Louise Thompson

louise_support_that_counts_1Renovations can be exhausting and frustrating but oddly exhilarating at the same time. During my recent home makeover, as I bounced between building suppliers, sanitary ware outlets and roof truss manufacturers, I got to thinking about service levels that stand out. It struck me that the difficult decisions, inconveniences and stresses of any project can be minimized by excellent service.
