IndustryWeek Interview on US Insourcing Very Plausible by Utilizing ERP Software to Lean Operations, Says SYSPRO USA President
COSTA MESA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 3, 2012 — SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning ( ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that SYSPRO USA President Joey Benadretti, long an advocate for returning areas of manufacturing to the US, is in complete accord with an interview that appears in the July 27, 2012 digital edition of IndustryWeek newsletter. The interview with Ray Sjolseth, President of Seesmart Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of LED lighting products, explains why the company is “insourcing” a line of LED lighting products back to the US as an “American-made line.”
Among the reasons Sjolseth gives for manufacturing the new LED line in the US are: Timely delivery to customers; Quicker turnaround time; Avoiding costly air freight charges; Better control of manufacturing process; Closer eye on product quality; Better cash flow management; and Able to satisfy customers that demand American-made.
Says Benadretti, “With ERP solutions, such as SYSPRO, manufacturers like Seesmart, can not only ensure many of the advantages stated, such as quality, better customer service and so on, but they can lean their operations to the point of actually cutting production costs by manufacturing in the US.
“For example,” says Benadretti, “SYSPRO can point to customer case studies that attest to the cost savings, inventory reductions, faster turnaround times and improved product quality that US manufacturers have achieved using SYSPRO ERP. Gone are the days when ERP solutions take years to implement, are forced on existing business processes and pose a steep learning curve for employees,” he says, adding: “The SYSPRO award-winning implementation methodology not only enables manufacturers and distributors to speed SYSPRO ERP implementation, but to streamline their business processes during implementation.
“Because SYSPRO software enables mid-size companies to tailor their SYSPRO software, as per the above – and more – to meet special and often unique requirements, the companies are able to extend operational efficiencies and customer service.”
Benadretti summarizes: “With SYSPRO ERP, US manufacturers can gain a distinct advantage in greater time savings, cost savings, customer service enhancement and other major benefits, such as green enablement, by insourcing their manufacturing to the US.”
SYSPRO has earned the trust of more than 14,500 companies in 60 countries for its suite of visionary software that enhances the competitive thrust of small/mid-sized manufacturers and distributors. The company’s adherence to developing technology based on the needs of customers is among the reasons why SYSPRO enjoys one of the highest customer retention rates in the industry. Follow SYSPRO on:
