COSTA MESA, Calif. – July 13, 2012  –SYSPRO, a developer of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that leading analyst Cindy Jutras, founder of Mint Jutras, LLC, has profiled SYSPRO’s recently announced powerful offerings for the SMB marketplace – SYSPRO Point of Sale and SYSPRO App Store – in a recent blog, “Changing the Way Products are Bought and Sold.”

About SYSPRO’s new Point of Sale software, the Jutras blog notes: “It [SYSPRO] is still focused primarily on manufacturers and distributors and is offering additional features and functions to support these companies as they reach out directly to consumers.  As a result, the SYSPRO Point of Sale solution offers features specifically designed for manufacturers that might not be available in a POS solution designed first and foremost for retailers…The goal is to provide manufacturers with retail operations a single solution to manage business information, store operations, customer-focused POS, inventory optimization and merchandizing along with ERP…

“The new SYSPRO App Store,” says Mint Jutras, “is SYSPRO’s response to its customers’ growing appetite for expanded functionality and the consumerization of Information Technology.  It is an online marketplace for the global SYSPRO community where partners can offer new products and customers can search for solutions.  In fact, it is a public site, so anyone will be able to browse and search, but a secure login will be required to either purchase or publish. . . the SYSPRO App Store is a way for partners to add value to the  SYSPRO solution.”

Summarizes Mint Jutras, “We live in a world of change . . . once an ERP solution is in place, companies continue to change and grow and many seek continuous improvement.  Having the ability to easily expand ERP’s footprint to satisfy changing or expanding needs is a huge plus.”

Joey Benadretti, SYSPRO USA President, notes: “The Mint Jutras blog captures what SYSPRO is all about, i.e., continuing developing software that meets the needs of our customers and the marketplace.”
