SYSPRO’s ERP Solutions Eased Pandemic Disruptions for Manufacturers and Distributors

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Wed, Jan 12, 2022 @ 09:30 AM

About SYSPRO

Stevie-winner SYSPRO remains one of the longest-standing privately owned, global vendors of ERP software.  They operate in over 60 countries, across six continents, and have over 500 employees. SYSPRO’s strength lies in its focus on making things possible for manufacturers and distributors through their specialist, industry-built approach to technology that can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, and accessed from a mobile device. 

Due to their industry specialization and industry-built solutions, they have been able to guide customers to overcome the disruptions presented by the pandemic. According to a 2020 SYSPRO research study, 60% of businesses were impacted by supply chain disruptions during the pandemic, 37% of companies were unable to provide the remote work capabilities to employees that were required and only 38% of businesses felt that their business systems were adequate to cope with the disruption.

Businesses came to realize that in order to overcome supply chain disruptions, their business operations need to consider a different approach to ensure supply-chain resiliency. This shift in strategic sourcing and procurement is now being considered as a viable option worldwide.

SYSPRO ERP

SYSPRO ERP can support manufacturers to digitalize by providing the systems and platforms that resolve the biggest areas of impact; remote workforce enablement, implementation and automation of business systems to handle the procurement and sourcing policy changes, distribution and lead time planning; and analytics providing data real-time to support improved decision-making. 

Key features of SYSPRO include:

1.MOM: SYSPRO’s Manufacturing Operations Management Solution provides complete manufacturing lifecycle management from planning, scheduling, publishing, collecting, tracking and analyzing to optimize and improve end-to-end manufacturing operations. Benefits for manufacturers include increased productivity and lowers costs by minimizing loss within the business

2.Recall Management: Product Recall is a traceability system that allows manufacturers to perform a full product recall quickly and efficiently by providing instant access to all of the critical information to track a suspect product, throughout the value chain.  It supplies the necessary information to identify, isolate and action the activities that need to occur within the predetermined recall time limit.

3.Supply Chain Portal: The Supply Chain Portal is an interactive web platform that facilitates online transactions between an enterprise and its suppliers. The Supply Chain Portal streamlines collaboration between buyers and suppliers and minimizes document handling – reducing potential fraud. It automates business processes and ensures transparency of supplier transactions.

4.Choice of cloud on prem or hybrid: Whether meeting a strategic IT imperative, providing for centralized control, requiring visibility and manageability across dispersed locations, enabling remote location access or considering aspects such as where your IP should reside, SYSPRO ERP gives manufacturers the choice to deploy either in the cloud, on-premise or both (hybrid).

5.Specialist Industry experience: SYSPRO’s ERP solution is built to deliver last-mile, industry-specific functionality for manufacturers and distributors across a group of selected industries in which we have thorough expertise. By taking advantage of SYSPRO’s industry frameworks for your sector, you can benefit from best practices while minimizing the cost and time involved in your ERP implementation. 

6.Specialist Consulting and Value-Added Service: SYSPRO is ideally positioned to provide value-add through specialist consulting services. SYSPRO’s Consulting Services team is uniquely equipped to enable a business to unlock strategic value from their investment in SYSPRO. The team is represented by Project Managers and Consultants of all disciplines, who combined have many years of experience successfully implementing complex ERP projects within a wide range of industries.

How the ERP Helps Customers

SYSPRO’s strength lies in its focus on making things possible for manufacturers and distributors through its specialist, industry-built approach to technology that can be deployed on-premise, in the cloud, and accessed from a mobile device. Working as a trusted advisor and committed to the success of both customers and partners, their goal is to succeed together, creating rewarding, long-standing relationships. SYSPRO’s customer retention rate is 98%, significantly higher than the industry average, with some customers remaining for more than three decades.

Ruprecht, a value-added food solutions company that makes ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook products, provides a good illustration of the impact SYSPRO ERP has on mid-market manufacturing organizations. Over the previous 10 years, the company had heavily invested in product innovation, which paid off with rapid growth. But to fully capitalize on this growth, Ruprecht needed a fully integrated business solution. The manufacturer’s in-house ERP and accounting software were not tightly connected, and it lacked key capabilities such as production scheduling, full inventory visibility, manufacturing standard costing, and ‘what if’ scenarios.

SYSPRO addressed these challenges, saving the company an estimated $1.5 to $2 million a year according to Ruprecht’s CFO. The customer was also able to implement AI, which enabled it to build a predictive model for optimizing the supply chain, prepare for the weather and other disruptions and become a more agile organization — all of which was tightly integrated with SYSPRO ERP.

SYSPRO won the Gold Stevie Award for ERP Solution and the Silver Stevie Award for Communications or PR Campaign of the Year - Technology in The International Business Awards.

Supplement Manufacturing Partners’ Exponential Growth in a Competitive Industry

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Wed, Dec 15, 2021 @ 11:43 PM
  • Supplement Manufacturing Partners is a US-based leading nutraceutical manufacturer 
  • The company has hundreds of stock supplement formulas as well as several exclusive formulas that no other company offers 
  • Despite the pandemic, SMP had massive growth and offers solutions at every step of the supplement manufacturing process 

About Supplement Manufacturing Partners

Supplement Manufacturing Partners is a leading manufacturer of nutraceuticals in the United States. With over 20,000 sqft of office and warehouse space, SMP is a complete turnkey solution for any brand owner. With over 200 stock supplement formulas, Supplement Manufacturing Partners has one of the largest collections of formulas on the market, as well as several exclusive formulas that no other company has. 

SMP Nutra was founded in late 2019 by three childhood friends and nutraceutical manufacturing industry veterans. With over a decade of direct experience under their belts, they found the prevailing industry-specific business model lacking. SMP Nutra was built to address the glaring issues they saw with pricing, timing, communication, marketing, and overall customer satisfaction. It is because of SMP Nutra’s responsive and turnkey business model that they were able to realize massive growth in 2020 amidst the global pandemic. From expansion, employment, sales, marketing, and more, SMP Nutra excelled at nearly everything regarding supplement manufacturing. In its first full year, SMP generated over $20 million in revenue and more than tripled its number of employees. 

Despite only being founded in late 2019, the team at SMP still managed to have massive success. They expanded their stock formulary from a handful of supplements to over 200 different formulas. Being trend-responsive and experienced has enabled them to offer unique and high-demand stock formulas, giving them a competitive advantage over others in the industry. SMP has produced supplements for more than 300 brands, helped launch over 180 new brands, and has helped fulfill orders for over 50 brands, allowing clients to focus on running their brand while ensuring that customers get their packages in a timely manner. SMP has also helped numerous brands get into many large retailers such as Whole Foods, Walmart, Costco, Walgreens, Rite Aid, and more. 

SMP Nutra understands the notion of front-loading as much value as possible to their clients and stakeholders, and as such, they put themselves last in the value chain. This philosophy has enabled them to grow their supplement formula catalog exponentially in the past year, outpacing their competition. With over 175 products added in just the last year, they have surpassed the closest competitor’s entire catalog by almost 100 SKUs. Supplement Manufacturing Partners enables brands (both established and new) to fully create their vision and deliver something to be proud of. SMP’s highly skilled team of graphic designers and marketers assist in creating high-visibility brands and superior product presentation, enabling their client’s high rate of growth relative to the competition. 

Supplement Manufacturing Partners won the Gold Stevie Award for Company / Organization Categories - Company of the Year - Manufacturing - Medium and a Bronze Stevie Award for Company / Organization Categories - Fastest Growing Company of the Year - Up to 100 Employees in The 2021 American Business Awards®.

Two Stevie Wins for the Contribution of Dr. Lisa Langer: Bringing Stress Relief to Individuals in the Healthcare Community during Covid-19

Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Wed, Oct 20, 2021 @ 09:15 AM

It’s not every day that a truly major category in The International Business Awards® for 2021 – “Most Valuable Service” in the highly competitive COVID-19 Response categories - has a winner that is a solo entrepreneur and/or practitioner.

After all, you’d expect these “big,” competitive wins to go to bigger companies with lots of resources to combat COVID-19 including novel ways to care for their many employees during these unusually trying times.

Yet, Lisa Langer, Ph.D., solo entrepreneur, and practitioner pulled out that win just as she did yet another one after that – a silver win in the Stevie Awards for Women In Business, also for 2021 – in the category of Most Innovative Woman of the Year – Healthcare. By way of these wins, Dr. Langer inadvertently becomes a perfect role model for so many solo entrepreneurs who also do innovative work and who need that extra push to take a risk and dive into big-time Stevie categories.

lisa langer banner

During the pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control warned of Covid-19's “side effects,” among them feelings of fear, sadness and worry as well as difficulty concentrating and sleeping.

Lisa langerEnter Lisa Langer, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist specializing in life-stress reduction, who, during Covid-19, became the “go-to” person for thousands of individuals in the “healthcare community” – from doctors and nurses to technicians and administrators - who were seeking just that.

Back in 2012, Langer had created a health and wellness center called PRACTICE Mind Body Soul Company, in Roslyn, New York. A disrupter, she did so before “wellness” - including meditation and/or yoga - went mainstream. The center was acquired in 2016 by Northwell Health System, the largest healthcare system in New York, where Dr. Langer
is based, as their first-ever Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine.

During the pandemic, the many healthcare workers who know Dr. Langer – and many just getting the word - sought her out on Zoom. Sometimes 500-to-a-call, five days a week, they sought her out for the relief they needed as they maintained stiff upper lips on the front lines, no matter their exposure to Covid-19 – or deepfelt concerns about loved ones as well.

In the healthcare community, Lisa Langer was their life raft.

Dr. Langer is trained in MBSR, the “mindfulness stress reduction” technique that is considered among the best by those in the know, which, during Covid, included many healthcare workers based in New York.  

Lisa langer bookTo support this work, Dr. Langer wrote a book, introduced during Covid and titled “Deeper Into Mindfulness”, which, yes, was purchased by her following in large numbers. Read the all-five-star Amazon reviews and you’ll see words like “anchor” in “difficult times.”

To reach a wider audience beyond Zoom and to give those on these calls what they needed to practice stress-relief when they were off Zoom, Dr. Langer included QR codes, which, once scanned, showcase videos of Dr. Langer as if she were leading you in meditation right there in your living room. Or, on a short, much-needed break from frontline work.

As one Women In Business judge put it: “Use of QR codes within the book for video links … are truly innovative ideas that helped further increase her reach during the pandemic period and bridge the gap with clients.”

In addition to the Stevie Awards, Dr. Langer’s book was honored as well. In the fall of 2021, it won a Living Now Award, a leading book award in the publishing arena of books that inspire us and improve our quality of life. Dr. Langer won bronze in the category of Relaxation/Mindfulness.

Not ones to normally feature segments on meditation, major media across the U.S. called on Dr. Langer during Covid including many TV stations - from ABC in Scranton, Pennsylvania to CBS in New York, Tampa, West Palm Beach, Cedar Rapids and El Paso in addition to a morning show in Burbank - unheard of in a relatively short period of time even for some celebrities. That desperate were they, the major media, to tell their audiences of millions about meditation and to share its benefits.

Because that’s what we all needed.

And received from Lisa Langer during Covid-19.

Wabtec’s dominant market share in Positive Train Control (PTC) systems, which span 70,000 miles of track, is the foundation for a more autonomous network.
