Hayward Gordon Ltd. Boosts Revenue Per Employee By 65%

Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada (October 26, 2010) –

SYSPRO, a leading, worldwide provider of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, has announced that Hayward Gordon Ltd., a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of process equipment, products and systems relating to pumping, mixing, filtration and bulk solids handling, is reporting numerous efficiencies from the company’s implementation of SYSPRO ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning Software).

Headquartered in Halton Hills, Ontario, Hayward Gordon selected the SYSPRO solution in 1990 based on the ability of the software to meet the stringent requirements of a job shop environment and integrate operations and financial data in real-time.

According to Hayward Gordon President, John Hayward, whose father, Len Hayward, founded the company, SYSPRO software has enabled the automation of electronic time tracking on the shop floor leading to the elimination of a data entry position. In addition, the integration of Microsoft CRM (Customer Relationship Management) into the SYSPRO software has automated order entry, enabling even field personnel to enter orders automatically, again eliminating the need for duplicate data entry.

Hayward states that by leveraging SYSPRO ERP, Hayward Gordon has not only cuts costs, but it has also helped the company to reliably meet its lead times. “One of the things we realized,” says Hayward, “was that we had to compress our lead times and make them more reliable. We’ve taken a number of steps that take advantage of the fact that processes that used to run consecutively, can now run concurrently – all electronically and all at the same time.”

Commenting on the Return on Investment (ROI) realized from the company’s purchase of SYSPRO software, Hayward states: “We’ve seen our revenue per employee increase by around sixty-five percent in the last four years. You can’t do that unless you build the ability to grow sales without growing costs in lockstep. If you don’t have the right infrastructure in place, your sales can even cost more to make than they’re worth. That’s what productivity is about – if you have the right systems in place it gives your company extra capacity without adding costs. That’s the way we’ve been able to measure what SYSPRO has done for us.”
