COSTA MESA, Calif. – January 31, 2014 --  SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, announced today that the company has been named a finalist for an American Business Award (“Stevie”) in the category: Customer Service Department of the Year – Computer Software – 100 Or More Employees.

SYSPRO has a customer retention rate of 98%, one of the highest, if not the highest, in the software industry.  While this high customer retention rate can be attributed to the excellence and ease-of-use of SYSPRO ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) Software, this high rate can also be attributed to the stringent customer relations program in place at SYSPRO.

 The company’s fully staffed Customer Relations Department reports directly to SYSPRO USA Company President, Joey Benadretti, and follows an exacting program.  While elevating customer satisfaction is the responsibility of the SYSPRO Customer Service staff, customer relations and retention are also the responsibilities of every SYSPRO employee, stresses Benadretti, noting, “Our success is based on the success of our customers.  SYSPRO has repeatedly set itself apart in the ERP landscape by putting the needs of our customers first. We focus on the continuous improvement of their businesses, helping them to migrate to higher levels via the innovative use of technology and people.” 

The well-regarded SYSPRO Customer Service Program and high customer retention rates have also been the subject of advisories by software industry analysts, the most recent being an opinion write up by IDC Analyst Mary Wardley, who notes: “The ‘century of the customer’ has centered on increasing customer experience and, powered by social media, is motivating organizations to invest in their customer-handling infrastructure.”

Wardley concludes: “SYSPRO is exemplary of a company that exemplifies the ‘culture, strategy, and processes’ component of IDC's CX taxonomy . . . ”

SYSPRO Customer Service Also Candidate for “People’s Choice Award.” 

As a finalist for the American Business Award “Customer Service Department of the Year,” SYSPRO also qualifies for a People’s Choice Award for the same category.  Votes for SYSPRO can be logged by visiting the Stevies site and entering the short code: Y677E
