Business Critical Solutions


Landed Cost Tracking
In order to calculate landed cost, all factors beyond primary cost of material must be considered and accounted for; so that proper costs are updated and made available for decision making. ​SYSPRO’s Landed Cost Tracking is designed to address these problems by providing visibility of imported goods through shipment tracking and enables greater control of all associated costs, resulting in accurate landed costs.

Blanket Sales Orders and Releases
An underlying problem for suppliers is the time it takes to action a new release and the ability of management to examine the ramifications of any changes. SYSPRO Blanket Sales Orders provides an effective method of setting up contracts between original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers by providing blanket sales orders with multiple release dates, multiple call-offs and cumulative tracking.

Lot Traceability
It has become increasingly important to be able to locate specific lots of finished goods to speed recalls when a defect or hazard of a particular part has been identified.  SYSPRO Lot Traceability enables you to maximize quality control by tracking products, materials and processes, as well as by facilitating effective recalls.

Preferred Supplier
Procurement and Supplier Relationships have an increasingly important role to play in ensuring Manufacturers and Distributors achieve specific strategic goals. Preferred Supplier is a feature within SYSPRO’s ERP that facilitates and optimizes the management of sourcing strategies for material, and for the recommended selection of suppliers during your purchasing cycle. By establishing and managing strategic sourcing policies in SYSPRO’s Preferred Supplier feature you can decrease your purchasing risk, improve purchasing governance and ultimately achieve cost reductions.
