SYSPRO Wins CaliSolar ERP Software Contract

Mid-Sized 'Green Manufacturers' Like Superior Lot, Inspection and Doc Controls; PragmaVision Positioning and Power Tailoring Bundle Gaining Against Leaders

COSTA MESA, Calif. - October 10, 2008 -- SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP for the manufacturing pragmatist, today announced that the company has secured yet another "green manufacturing" win with a mid-market enterprise resource planning (ERP) contract with CaliSolar, Inc..

This newest SYSPRO win furthers SYSPRO's growing reputation as a leader in supporting environment-friendly manufacturers and distributors throughout the world who buy into the company's PragmaVision (TM) positioning of offering affordable enterprise software solutions that are both pragmatic and visionary. In the CaliSolar win, SYSPRO demonstrated again that its superior lot traceability, inspection and documentation controls - combined with its new 'Power Tailoring Bundle' - are an unbeatable combination.

CaliSolar, Inc. is a rapidly growing private company engaged in the development and manufacturing of high efficiency solar cells using 100% UMG Si. The company is incorporated in the USA and conducts its research and development operations in both the USA and Germany. CaliSolar has recently announced that it will be expanding operations with its first 50MW factory scheduled to open in mid-2009. The Company was founded in 2006 by Dr. Kamel Ounadjela, Dr. Fritz Kirscht and Dr. Eicke Weber. The deal was won by SYSPRO reseller Connective Microsystems of Hollister, Calif.

"The CaliSolar executives had worked previously with SYSPRO at another business and had seen first-hand why SYSPRO has a reputation for software solution excellence," said Frank Robinson, CEO, Connective Microsystems. "SYSPRO's lot control, documentation and inspection capabilities are absolutely first class, and I think far ahead of all competitive offerings regardless of size. These types of capabilities are extremely important in green manufacturing initiatives, like solar cell production."

SYSPRO Power Tailoring Bundle Drawing Acclaim

Robinson emphasizes that SYSPRO's 'Power Tailoring Bundle,' a powerful combination of user interface technologies that both speed and personalize the use of SYSPRO operational capabilities, also helps electronics and machinery/equipment manufacturers like CaliSolar to become operational quickly and move forward with their business objectives faster.

SYSPRO's Power Tailoring Bundle was, in fact, labeled "industry leading" by Bill McSpadden, CEO of PWR Consulting in the 2008 report, "Big Visions for the Pragmatic, Yet Visionary Midsize Company."

SYSPRO's Power Tailoring Bundle includes:

SYSPRO Office Integration - the ability to operate SYSPRO's ERP solutions from within the context of Microsoft Outlook, Office, Excel and other Office solutions. This creates operational efficiencies, speeds up responses to favorable or unfavorable data, and provides a more comfortable operational context for business users.
Power Role-based User Interface - the ability for system administrators to control the customization of the SYSPRO User Interface (UI) by applying roles to operators.
Customized Panes and Executive Views - the ability for users to create their own views and forms and to customize the SYSPRO product to create dashboards and executive views that provide instant access to critical data all within one screen, anywhere in the product.

Power Charts - the traditional charting facility within SYSPRO has been rewritten to provide leading-edge functionality that significantly enhances the visual representation of data within the product and allows for considerable end-user customization.

Initially, eight persons at CaliSolar will be utilizing SYSPRO 6.0, SP2 software running on Microsoft Windows NT.

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 pragmatic, visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but aggressive market growth.
