The IDC MarketScape study assesses 14 of the leading SaaS and cloud-enabled ERP software solutions for midmarket enterprises and discusses the criteria IDC deems most important for companies to consider when selecting a system.

Mickey North Rizza, program vice president of IDC’s Enterprise Applications and Digital Commerce, stated, “The SaaS and cloud-enabled midmarket ERP market has a mix of competitors from small and medium-sized to large technology vendors. Selecting the right vendor partner is critical to your long term strategy as a business.”

The IDC MarketScape noted in the study that SYSPRO’s high customer retention rate (98%) is “the result of significant effort to understand their customer base.”

SYSPRO offers companies of all sizes a high degree of flexibility in several areas of their manufacturing and distribution operations.  Companies have choice at nearly every operational touchpoint with SYSPRO, beginning with the choice to deploy on premise or in the Microsoft Azure cloud, implement software at their own pace via SYSPRO’s process-modelled deployment framework, train in-person or digitally via the SYSPRO Learning Channel (available 24/7), and personalize the application’s interface continuously without coding.

“SYSPRO has 35+ years’ experience building out a proven, feature-rich solution that infuses the newest technologies, as recognized again today by IDC naming SYSPRO a Major Player,” said Kevin Dherman, Chief Innovation Officer, SYSPRO. “Companies know they can trust SYSPRO to stand behind them, protect their ERP investment, and give them choices they can’t get elsewhere as they grow their business.”
