SYSPRO Recognized for Excellence in Innovation for Second Successive Year

COSTA MESA, Calif. - March 13, 2008 -- SYSPRO, a leading enterprise business solutions provider, said SYSPRO was one of three companies named for "Software Company of the Year" by the Technology Council of Southern California. The award, based primarily on "excellence in innovation," also recognizes local involvement and social responsibilities, as well as commitment to macro issues such as "green" environmental initiatives. This is the second year that SYSPRO has been nominated to receive this prestigious award, and the fourth year out of the last five that SYSPRO has been so honored. The Technology Council named SYSPRO "Software Company of the Year" in 2004.

This latest honor follows a string of awards presented to SYSPRO. These include: SYSPRO Fluid Interface Design Selected for "Top 50 Technology Award" by START-IT; SYSPRO Ranked #1 in "Overall Quality" by Tech Education Leader, K2 Enterprises; SYSPRO listed among "Top 100 Innovators" by Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine; and SYSPRO customer, Optical Cable, named "Manufacturer of the Year" - Mid-market Category - by START-IT Magazine

During the past year, SYSPRO released a series of advanced features and functionality, including:

The second module in a series of three Inventory Optimization solutions designed to improve business forecasting and leverage Lean Manufacturing principles;

SYSPRO Projects and Contracts, a new software solution that provides greater operational control and profit optimization capabilities to mid-market manufacturers; and The SYSPRO Fluid Interface Design that enables non-IT users in small- to mid-sized manufacturing companies to customize screens to suit individual requirements.

"SYSPRO sets a very high standard for the technology solutions that we deliver to the small and mid-market," said Joey Benadretti, president, SYSPRO USA. "We will continue to help manufacturing and distribution companies to realize their full potential by giving them an extra advantage that they can't get elsewhere."

SYSPRO's more thoughtful approach to adopting new technology, such as web services and SOA platforms, also reflects the desires of its buyers who are driven by business needs and not by the latest headlines. This exemplifies SYSPRO's ongoing strategy of helping to simplify the success of its customers. SYSPRO calls its buyer landscape "PragmaVision"(TM) consisting of visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but aggressive market growth.

Since its inception in 1978, SYSPRO has been delivering state-of-the-art business solutions to some of the world's leading companies. As a global leader in the production of world-class ERP software, the company now caters to the specialized needs of 12,000 licensed companies in more than 60 countries worldwide.
