Manufacturing and distribution companies are learning how they can access business critical data from any location at any time, as K3 Syspro takes its Espresso mobile solution on a nationwide tour.
The business solutions provider is half way through a series of regional interactive events where it is showcasing the recently released SYSPRO 7 enterprise resource planning (ERP) application together with its mobile framework SYSPRO Espresso. Travelling to its customers throughout the UK and Ireland, experts at K3 Syspro are informing SYSPRO users of the latest enhancements made in SYSPRO 7 and demonstrating the powerful mobile capabilities of the SYSPRO Espresso framework.
SYSPRO Espresso is a new mobile platform which allows users of SYSPRO ERP to access vital business data in any location at any time for device agnostic data collection and transaction processing. It is one of the first platforms of its kind to use a single source codebase to create native applications for any mobile device, with built-in powerful customisation capabilities for both the end-user and developers to engage. SYSPRO Espresso is available as part of SYSPRO 7, the latest version of SYSPRO ERP which comes with greater scalability, mobility and performance to effectively streamline business processes.
The new mobile framework has been made available at a time when companies throughout the UK are embracing mobile technology, with Gartner reporting that as many 320 million mobile devices will be used by manufacturing companies in the UK by 2015. For manufacturing and distribution companies, mobile ERP enables shopfloor managers to monitor factory productivity and efficiency, reference myriad production documents or contact offsite colleagues who are on the move.
Darren Edwards, Production Adoption Manager at K3 Syspro said: “At K3 Syspro, we are noticing a shift in the way that our customers work. The business world is going digital and it is important that manufacturing and distribution companies keep up. SYSPRO Espresso allows businesses to provide transparent business information from a remote device, taking the management of their business to a whole new level.
“By delivering SYSPRO Espresso to our customers and showcasing its unique features, we are able to demonstrate to them ways that mobile devices can help to enhance user adoption of ERP and reveal new ways for them to streamline their supply chains on the move.”
