In addition, SYSPRO’s inventory management module integrates with the materials requirements planning (MRP) module to calculate what’s required for production and when it’s needed.

Artificial intelligence – By using artificial intelligence and machine learning, users can spot developing trends, analyze unstructured and structured data, and highlight anomalies to enhance their decision making. Additionally, SYSPRO’s artificial intelligence introduces users to humanlike chatbots that address (and even predict) customers’ queries. The web robots (i.e., digital citizens) take over repetitive or known tasks, so users are free to do what they do best. Overall, SYSPRO’s AI capability allows companies to digitize their business affordably and quickly, with minimal disruption.

Financial accounting – SYSPRO contains a core of capable financial modules, including purchase order entry, bank reconciliation, fixed assets, general ledger and more.

In addition, the system integrates with Crystal Reports for straightforward report generation.

Social ERP – Harmony, a user-friendly, integrated social platform, incorporates social media into the core of SYSPRO ERP. It offers a familiar user interface for communication and conducting daily business. By analyzing real-time trends, insights and details via Social ERP, users can make decisions that enhance lead times, productivity and overall responsiveness. In addition, work-to-lists give users single views of project data, including conversions from the Social ERP, and key performance indicators (KPIs) to reveal how personnel are performing.

Advanced analytics – SYSPRO Analytics allows users to measure the success of their business based on their specific KPIs. Also, the analytics tool boosts efficiency by disclosing KPIs to main stakeholders across the company, which enhances team collaboration efforts.

CRM – The CRM for SYSPRO solution simplifies operations by allowing manufacturers and distributors to analyze business performance from a variety of sources. Users can work where and when desired with this mobile CRM that integrates back and front office tasks.

Sales order module – SYSPRO’s sales order module accommodates timely, accurate order fulfillment and efficient, fast order processing to improve the customer experience. Users can maximize their team’s productivity with the module’s grid-entry design and personalize the screens to streamline their workflows.

SMART MES (Manufacturing Execution System): SMART MES is a robust, advanced planning and scheduling module that allows manufacturers to build and share flexible production plans seamlessly. In addition, organizations can use the module to create accurate schedules that account for constraints around tooling, machines, materials and people. Manufacturers can then ensure they’re making the best use of their capacity to serve customers cost-effectively.
