Frustration awaits

2017-06-08

the long process of data entry pays off when you can retrieve information with minimal searching.

Pros

There is the standard trackers that can account for inventory and process planning.

Cons

Pulling data that would seem logical is just beyond your reach, requires a lot of customization to retrieve common data that is a logical default field.

Alan Hart

A very comprehensive ERP solution for a variety of small to medium size companies.

2018-01-29

Pros

The accounting and finance section is robust and complete and the general ledger can serve large organizations. Inventory and warehouse menaagement are comprehensive and should only require minor customization for most companies that use it.

Cons

Alternatively, you can query the data you need using MS-Query or SQL Server Management Studio to get quick and accurate results.

Syspro is feature rich, complex and does not fit our industry or our company

2018-04-20

Overall, we can see the reporting advantages, but we are in the camp that Syspro is just not a good fit for us.

Pros

Our installation of Syspro uses SQL, which allows for a great amount of reporting options. The data can also be extracted to Excel or an Access database.

Cons

We are unable to receive inventory in a prior period.

Syspro Review

2018-11-01

Its overall pretty good, its has lots of functionality and ability for tracking and storing information.

Pros

It's good at managing inventory, keeping track of everything and providing reporting into excel that allows one to work in and create and look for whatever is needed.

Cons

I found it at first a little hard to know how to use it, I found I would accidentally delete fields in my search area screen and not know how I did it and how to get it back.

Best ERP System

2016-10-14

They system allows you to add custom fields and allows you to customized all your own forms.

Pros

SYSPRO is allows you to customize which I find to be very beneficial for our company.

Cons

Also they do not offer “Non Stock” part codes that can be kept in an inventory file as an expense item, as an inventory item GL code is based on Warehouse.

Great All Around ERP

2016-08-12

Syspro= flexibility, accuracy, & value

2016-11-02

Syspro is a flexible system in respect to various modules that can be purchased and with slight adjustments can be customized. Accuracy is as good as system input data but reports can showcase possible errors within data.

Pros

Syspro provided the technically to duplicate the same reports and overall streamlined the functionality between plants even though they were separated.

Cons

Syspro has a wealth of opportunity and with each area, a company must balance the cost to buy that section verse benefit.

Supply chain processes, finance processes, projecct accounting

Pros

It is a very user friendly application, easy to extract data to excel for fitter analysis.

Cons

The erp has been design mostly for the manufacturing industry but it does not come with the equipment maintenance module manufacturing industry is equipment intensive and the cost of maintaining equipments is very high syspro lacks the capability of tracking equipment maaintenance cost syspro clients are forced to look for third party apps which are expensive and challenging to interface with syspro this is frastuating most of us please work on this.

Robust ERP

2016-09-01

Pros

This allows me to access my data using custom SQL queries and gives me the ability to create dynamic reports and tools that help me manage various aspects of our company, eliminate wasteful processes and alleviate burden from our teams.

Cons

The user interface hasn't changed much over the years, however, after attending Syspro's latest User Conference, I am encouraged to see that they will be making huge improvements for the user's experience.

SYSPRO in Retrospect

2016-08-31

Pros

What I like most about the system is, if initially set-up properly, the ability to query data that meets any company's reporting requirements.

Cons

EDI is also a great tool but unfortunately this product generally ties into their shipping solution, which is basically a third party solution.

Recommendations to others considering SYSPRO

Determine your current "pain points". Why do you need a new ERP? For EDI? ATP? Bills of Material (BOM)? Know what your company requires before doing your due diligence! Then, when talking to SYSPRO, ensure they understand it is you require. Have them show how their system could work for you! If you choose SYSPRO, make sure you fully understand what is involved in the initial data set-up/imports. Their import templates are lengthy and "foreign", if you haven't actually worked in the system on a regular basis. It is CRITICAL to get these imports right! I would also suggest classroom training vs. online training. You'll need a more hands-on experience to really know the system, in my opinion.

Pros

Modules for across the board manufacturing support, from inventory, bills of materials, all financial modules, and support modules like Customer Service to Shipping.

Cons

Perfect ERP system on a tight budget

2018-09-12

Pros

The software, using its MS-SQL database will give you almost any report you require, otherwise you can extract the data you need, import it into your favourite spreadsheet program and compile those reports you need.

Cons

Without a good and easily accessible local resource/service agent, the customisation possibilities are terribly daunting.

With the right use case, this can be great software

2019-07-20

But be aware, it will take time, and you will have to train people multiple times to get them up to speed.

Pros

Almost everything can be exported to excel for easy reporting functions.

Cons

Although it is good at what it does, but programming for additional reports and functions requires a lot of our team both in training and our IT department in creating solutions.
