Syspro on ERP expansion path

By on

Syspro is on the expansion trail following its acquisition of the customer base of partner, Seven Rivers.

As part of its growth plans the ERP software vendor is also seeking to double its partner numbers to around 20 in order to move deeper into the distribution and manufacturing verticals.

According to APAC general manager, Shaun Butler, the local ramp-up was designed to meet growing demand for upper mid-market ERP solutions.

“We recently signed an agreement with Business Objects to incorporate Crystal Reports into our offerings so we’re in a position to meet a lot of customers’ demands,” he said.

“There is also demand amongst larger integrators who may do a tier one product like SAP and are looking for a tier two offering to supplement that.”

According to Butler the decision to purchase the customer base of Seven Rivers was not a sign it was moving away from a purely indirect sales model.

“Seven Rivers have offices in Asia and want to concentrate on that region,” he said. “We thought we’d show our partner community that we’re a long-term player here by purchasing their local customer base.”

Butler would not disclose the details of the acquisition, but said the entire customer base of tier two national and international brand names would be redistributed amongst the vendor’s remaining local partners.

On the recruitment side, Syspro would look at sign players on both the west and east coasts of Australia, Butler said.
