SYSPRO SOFTWARE KEY TO STM GROUP GLOBAL INTEGRATION

COSTA MESA, Calif. – October 6, 2009 -- SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP Software for the manufacturing pragmatist, today announced that SYSPRO customer, STM Group, is in the process of further expansion of its SYSPRO ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) implementation.  STM Group, headquartered in Irvine, Calif., is a leading provider of high-performance, standards-based satellite networks and cellular systems and services for mobile and fixed-line IP-based telephone, data and multimedia applications used by enterprises, governments, telecommunication providers and system integrators.  

According to Tony Naff, STM Vice President of Finance, during the fourteen months of SYSPRO ERP software utilization at STM headquarters, the company has been impressed with the software’s functionality, user-friendliness and stability. STM wants to further integrate operations for added efficiencies and greater management control in additional affiliated companies located abroad.

STM Group headquarters went “live” with its SYSPRO software implementation in July, 2008 in its companies based in California and United Arab Emerites.  The company had been utilizing a UNIX-based software solution; however, due to the antiquated nature of the software and the Group’s growing diversity and complexity, the decision was made to seek a new software solution, one with a successful history of global implementations.  Says Naff, “We wanted a product we could give to our affiliates in all parts of the world.  Our United Arab Emirates unit also investigated the SYSPRO product and found it to their liking, as well.”

Naff explains that the thoroughness of the SYSPRO installation documentation, STARS (Structured Technique to Achieve a Rapid Solution), even enabled STM to self-implement the SYSPRO software with minimal SYSPRO support.
As STM global units become operational on SYSPRO, the software will reside on hardware in the US with the global affiliates having access via a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

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