Blair-HSM Selects SYSPRO Over Epicor Upgrade. Agility, Inventory
Control, Supply Chain Management, Superior Costing Capabilities All Factors.
COSTA MESA, Calif. – November 10, 2009 – SYSPRO, a provider of
visionary ERP Software for the manufacturing pragmatist, has today announced
that the company has won a new
ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) contract from
Blair-HSM, a Medford, NY-based manufacturer and supplier of hydraulic
, mechanical and landing gear assemblies as well as a variety of kits
and parts for commercial and military aircraft. SYSPRO prevailed in a direct
compete against Epicor via SYSPRO reseller Edgeware Computers of Marietta, Ga.
According to Robert Lehmann, Blair-HSM vice president, the choice of
SYSPRO was based on the company’s need for superior supply chain management,
tighter inventory controls and a more agile approach to market demands. “SYSPRO
will enable us to be more responsive to ever changing business requirements,”
Derek Jenkins, Edgeware president, adds, “Blair-HSM had been utilizing
Epicor, but the software’s inability to accurately cost jobs was adversely
affecting the business. SYSPRO’s superb costing capabilities were definitely a
factor in Blair-HSM’s selection.”
SYSPRO software will be utilised by the two units comprising
Blair-HSM, Blair Industries and HSM Machine Works. Blair Industries produces
hydraulic actuators, mechanical assemblies, a wide variety of kits and complete
landing gear assemblies. HSM produces structural landing gear components and
airframe machined parts as well as hydraulic components.
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 “PragmaVisionTM,” consisting of
pragmatic, visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but
aggressive market growth.
