It doesn’t do what it promises to do. The accounting software is weak. It shaves pennies off every order. It’s really bad. Syspro doesn’t take any accountability at all. They have a very high turn over rate.

The Good…

Nothing

The Bad…

It doesn’t do basic math correctly. Syspro does not guarantee any customizations. Their product is a glitch fest.

Annual costs seem kind of high for this solution. We need EDI and advanced shipping notifications which they don’t have, and we are paying $12,000 annually for maintenance which seems high

Pros: Tracks inventory and costs in details. Integrates easily with MS-Office tools, especially Excel, Outlook and Word. Designed ground-up for manufacturers and distributors. Workflow - for accounting and procurement process. Pretty powerful and integrated software. Easily customizable without a developer. Stable and low total-cost compared to other ERP products. Cons: Some modules like Budget preparation with a team is a 3rd party add-on.

The Good…

Changing form layout and adding custom fields is so easy.

The Bad…

Scope for better integration with Budgeting and Payroll modules. Cloud hosting is offered, but not matured enough.

It definitely connects everything together. It is fully integrated, everything talks to each other and it follows itself the whole way through the system so you are not left with something being known on one side but not the other.

We continue to grow more than 20% a year in transaction volume and without SYSPRO it would be difficult to complete and ship as many orders out the door. SYSPRO allows us to manage customer and product ordering, accounting processes and manage the customer from the time of order through to invoicing.

I fell in love with SYSPRO all over again at the last conference. SYSPRO has been great for us, especially the financials, and I look forward to the new advancements in the product. After many years of using the software, our business changed from manufacturing to distribution, and SYSPRO still works very well for us today.
