SYSPRO, a global, independent Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) vendor, announces today its success in improving the efficiency and accuracy of the inventory control processes at Swissmar Imports Ltd., an Ontario based manufacturer and distributor of gourmet European housewares and active outdoor products, such as the Swiss Army knife. Swissmar needed a comprehensive ERP solution that wouldn’t place a heavy burden on internal resources; the SYSPRO system was chosen for its reliability and easy to use platform.

Swissmar has been benefitting from the SYSPRO ERP solution for over a decade. By leveraging the reliability and accuracy of the SYSPRO ERP system, Swissmar has been able to focus on growing their business instead of running their ERP. With SYSPRO, the IT department at Swissmar does not need to run system checks or other time consuming maintenance tasks. Also, staff at Swissmar find the software easy to understand and rarely require additional support after the initial training, further reducing the burden on the IT department.

“If we were using one of the other standard ERP systems, we'd probably be running system checks on a daily basis,” shares Ron Campitelli, Swissmar's IT Manager. “With SYSPRO, we don't have to do that, and we haven't had any major disasters. From the software side it just runs, using excellent back-end processes. It's rock solid, very reliable, and we don't get a lot of issues. That makes my department's job easier, and lets me concentrate on other things. The product is very intuitive, and if you've ever worked on an ERP before you'll be able to find your way around. Personally, I've seen and worked on many ERP systems. In my opinion, Swissmar made an excellent decision in choosing SYSPRO.”
