CA (July 16, 2010) –

SYSPRO 6.1 will save businesses money by eliminating waste, duplicated effort and reducing energy consumption.

A major new release of SYSPRO ERP from Manchester-based K3 Business Technology Group (K3) is to provide important ‘green’ and cost saving benefits for mid-market manufacturers and distributors. This new version of SYSPRO incorporates over a thousand new customer-requested features and advanced tools to assist sustainable operations.

SYSPRO 6.1 is a user-friendly Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that supports sustainability, saving K3 customers money by eliminating waste, duplicated effort and reducing energy consumption. This helps them achieve gold-standard operational efficiencies that add profit to the bottom line.

The advanced ERP system has new green architecture and modules, feature sets, workflow and customisation capabilities – all designed to make it easy for users to access the data they need in any application without the need for software development skills.

The Material Yield module, for example, automatically calculates yields from raw material using the actual dimensional requirements for specific products. This precision approach means that material such as sheets, rods, or tubes are fully utilised and consequently less waste is produced. This also reduces waste management costs, improves energy efficiency and delivers smaller fuel bills.

Sustainability also requires full financial control and fiscal responsibility. SYSPRO 6.1 provides Enterprise Performance Management for identifying and achieving fiscal improvements. The enhanced Executive Dashboards and Analytics, Boardroom Quality Reporting plus Cash Flow Reporting and Forecasting provide real-time, at-a-glance visibility of all aspects of the organisation enabling strategic and proactive decisions.

“Sustainability is a high agenda item for K3 customers. They require maximum efficiency – from raw material through manufacturing and delivery of their products. With SYSPRO 6.1 we provide cutting edge tools to help them with managing their green businesses. We’ve incorporated a vast array of updates to this version of SYSPRO and these will help them drive sustainability throughout their organisations, putting them in full control and building on the efficiencies they have gained through their existing SYSPRO investments. This software is a new generation solution that will enable sustainable business,” says Howard Joseph, Managing Director of K3 Business Technology Group.
