A fully integrated Forecasting Management Tool that forecasts future sales, and the introduction of an Electronic Funds Module to facilitate the processing of electronic payments in any country, are just two of the many enhancements featured in the latest SYSPRO 6.0 ERP software.
The new Modules, together with web applications and a host of new improvements in Manufacturing and Distribution functionality, will enable customers to gain even greater efficiencies in their operations, as well as allowing them to further extend their enterprises and reap the rewards of fully integrated supply chains.
The new issue of SYSPRO 6.0 will be available to customers from September 2004 onwards.
Howard Joseph, Sales Director of McGuffie Brunton said: "A major revamp of the software has created the most comprehensive enterprise solution that SYSPRO has ever produced and will empower customers with the highest levels of process and transaction execution."
The main purpose of the Forecasting Module is to allow users to structure inventory data in such a way that the level of detail being viewed and acted on is reduced, and for stock items to be grouped as "functional groups and families". The Module provides two methods of forecasting demand - batch and individual mode - and provides the tools to evaluate the forecast and its effectiveness. Significantly, the Forecasting Module lays the foundation for a forthcoming SYSPRO Inventory Optimisation Solution, that will ensure the right stock is in the right location, at the right time, at the right quantity, at the right price.
A new Electronic Funds Module that interfaces with SYSPRO Accounts Payable and Cash Book modules, has been designed to facilitate the processing of electronic payments, and to meet the requirements of banks in any country with minimal user intervention.
Additional functionality to SYSPRO financials includes an optional, structured General Ledger for easier navigation, relationship defining, better analysis of information and increased security. Extended commitment accounting functionality and enhancements to the requisitioning and purchasing systems offers SYSPRO users greater insights into a company's financial health.
The SYSPRO Fixed Assets module has been totally revamped to enable companies to better manage and control their asset investments. The system effectively manages the tracking of assets and includes extensive valuation methods and security options.
Online help has also been re-engineered and now utilises HTML files, which can be stored on the server for frequent updates. Links are provided to the SYSPRO Web site for updates. PDF manuals are available for viewing or printing.
