After a lengthy evaluation process that included scrutiny of software from Epicor, Sage, Exact and Microsoft Dynamics, Sprecher says SYSPRO ERP was the choice based on:
o SYSPRO's commitment to its Reseller Channel and the strength of one its highly competent, mid-west based Resellers, who demonstrated the SYSPRO product as a wise fit for our business.
