SYSPRO software strengths extend to manufacturing and distribution as well as comprehensive financial management and reporting. Many accounting software products are strong in one area or the other, but only SYSPRO excels in many.
- Financials - For the last decade, SYSPRO financial solutions have been rated among the best available and have consistently received certifications and top-level ratings from industry reviews, publications, consulting firms and analysts, including Sheldon Needle’s CTS Survey and Charles Chewning’s Accounting Library. SYSPRO delivers powerful fiscal control and insight into operations with ease. SYSPRO adheres to exacting standards, including IAS, FASB and XBRL. SYSPRO financial management software adds up to real value.
- Distribution - SYSPRO gives single or multi-location distributors, wholesalers, importers or over-the-counter retail operations the tools to optimize inventory management in order to maximize profitability. Inventory is the heart of distribution. SYSPRO offers 24/7 inventory and 360 degree order visibility, serial number and lot tracking, inventory optimization, total order fulfillment and customer service throughout your supply chain.

SYSPRO Reporting Services (SRS) is a next generation reporting tool that incorporates an embedded version of Crystal Reports XI. By interlacing the rich reporting and metrics generating capabilities of Crystal, XML and the Microsoft .NET architecture of SYSPRO, customers are delivered a unified, cost-effective reporting and metrics generating solution that further simplifies their operational effectiveness. SYSPRO Reporting Services enables users to extract and mine their information to virtually any level of complexity, complete with tailored web and paper based delivery options together with extensive preferences and layout features, such as graphs. SYSPRO Reporting Services uses Crystal as its report writer. SYSPRO e.net solutions, based on Microsoft .NET architecture, is a component framework that provides the foundation for easy integration with best-of-breed custom or third party solutions, enabling the adoption of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA.) SYSPRO Analytics enables users to create multi-dimensional views of their financial and operational data to determine patterns and underlying trends, gauge performance and reveal new pathways.
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and International Accounting Standards (IAS) were created by the International Accounting Standards Board to promote internationally comparable financial statements. Regulation 2002/3626 requires European Union organizations to prepare their consolidated financial statements in accordance with IFRS/IAS. This means that publicly traded companies will need to adhere to IFRS while still complying with local tax, dividend, and other regulations, which requires at least two sets of financial statements. Capital markets demand comparable numbers for investment decisions so even non-listed companies will be forced to issue IFRS-compliant financial statements. SYSPRO Financials, SRS and SYSPRO Analytics gives companies comprehensive functionality for parallel accounting to support both IFRS and local regulations around the world, enabling them to adhere to complex accounting standards, meet the requirements of the capital and financial markets and ensure the reliability and transparency of their financial reporting.
Corporate governance requires defined processes with tighter controls and accountability. Global standards provide the ability to highlight, monitor and analyze deviations from these standards. SYSPRO acknowledges and complies with new requirements issued by regulatory bodies such as European Union, FDA, IAS (International Accounting standards), GAAP (Generally accepted accounting practices) and Sarbanes Oxley. The need for managing by exception resulted in the powerful, flexible design of SYSPRO Electronic Signatures. Companies can design the level of security required for each transaction. In addition, the successful completion of the transaction can trigger multiple configurable actions, keeping key players informed. SYSPRO offers companies greater ability to maintain auditable business processes, financial transparency and operational control.

- Extensive security and Audit Trails provide strong internal controls
- HTML financial reporting with drill down to source detail
- Ability to trace operator entry

Reviews of SYSPRO 7 Write a Review
An anonymous SYSPRO 7 user says…
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.
Lacy from TAC Industries, Inc. says…
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.
The Good: I do like the program but there isn’t one thing that stands out, maybe that it is fully integrated.
The Bad: I am not really a big fan of the reporting. I would like it if there were more standard reports that we could then customize a bit more, but it still has the basics.
Tim Norris from SKLZ says…
SYSPRO helps provide us a unique look into our business. Utilizing its many modules and features, such as the EDI and Shipping Solution, Landed Cost Tracking, Bills of Materials, Credit Card processing, e.net Solutions, etc., has provided SKLZ the stability to grow our business.
Mick Whitlock from Vanns Spices says…
If you look back over time that we’ve been using SYSPRO, you can see that we.ve had major savings and that of those savings have gone to our bottom-line. Our company morale has also really improved as SYSPRO helps our employees efficiently do their jobs and get the information they need.

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.
David Hintzman from Bodypoint says…
We’ve been able to manage our global distribution network much more efficiently and we now are able to include our CE Marketing and traceability requirements as a result of having SYSPRO.
Steve Hoodendoorn from Yeti Cycles says…
SYSPRO Isn’t just sitting back and letting the product get stale. They are always innovating and finding wats to help us address our challenges. We are always getting a cutting-edge product.
Michael Conway from Summit Packaging Systems says…
One of the key advantages of SYSPRO is the integration of our custom barcode into the SYSPRO ERP system. We produce about 30 billion components and each is tracked through SYSPRO. This results in close to 1 billion transactions per year globally.
Vincent Chong from Sun Mountain Sports says…
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.
