SYSPRO’s strength lies in its simplified approach to technology. While many of the basic features remain the same in both versions, SYSPRO 8 comes with an impressive set of new technologies. The application of artificial intelligence in the SYSPRO 8 user interface brings us, for the first time ever, Avanti. This game-changer is an enhanced web-based UI that sets SYSPRO apart from its competition.

Another first with SYSPRO is Ken, an interactive chatbot that’s available on most devices. It allows customers and suppliers to access him from any app where he can be added as a contact. Ken is voice- and text-enabled that can help with customer service.

Versatile, user friendly, functionality and technologically advanced makes SYSPRO the best ERP software for global manufacturing and distribution.
