SYSPRO: “Hidden Data” as Vital as “Big Data”

Posted in: Blog- Jun 14, 2013 No Comments

I just got some fascinating news from SYSPRO – they have announced today that SYSPRO ERP software offers users the ability to access “hidden data” as well as “big data.”

We’ve heard a lot about “big data” in the news, but for manufacturers it’s a must to execute efficient and rapid product recalls.  Joey Benadretti, President of SYSPRO USA, said,  “While the utilization of ‘big data’ helps a company identify trends and chart future courses, the importance for numerous companies to have access to ‘hidden data’ cannot be overstated.  One of the underlying principles of basing business decisions on ‘big data’ is that the ability to access the volume, variety, and velocity of data tends to compensate for data errors.  But, manufacturers and distributors in a wide variety of industries, such as food, medical devices, automotive, pharmaceutical and others, must be able to connect and correlate relationships, hierarchies and multiple data linkages to facilitate the recall of products that may contain tainted ingredients or faulty parts that could cause harm or even death.  And, this is why SYSPRO ERP is the choice of many companies within these industries.”

SYSPRO lot traceability and serial tracking data affords extensive and precise visibility up or down the supply chain, as well as providing specific component to parent tracking, thereby providing the means to expedite recalls, should the need arise. SYSPRO optionally allows specific traceable components to be reserved for specific work-orders, as well as providing the flexibility of specifying the parent traceable numbers at the beginning, during or the end of the manufacturing process.  While the average cost of a recall to participating food and consumer product companies can run into millions of dollars, this number excludes the extensive human expense involved in the recalls. The ability and speed to collect the required data can cut recall time to hours rather than days or weeks and significantly reduce the costs of the recall.

It’s a fascinating way to conceptualize how SYSPRO is different from many other ERP products on the market.
