Fluid user

Changing visualization into reality
The enhanced visibility and presentation of information that comes with SYSPRO 6.1 provides for an improved user-experience, transparent management and co-ordination at all levels within the organization. The process of turning visualization into reality is accessible to the end user - without the need for a high level of technical expertise. Users are empowered with the freedom to view the information they require in any application within SYSPRO. There is no restriction on where the information is sourced, or the technology used to present the information. The SYSPRO 6.1 infrastructure enables information from any source to be visible in a SYSPRO application. For example, the user can view SYSPRO Analytics or any workflow process

directly in another SYSPRO program, such as Sales Order Entry. Users can make use of pre-configured templates when defining various applications such as dashboards, roles and responsibilities, KPIs and reports. Alternatively, they could create new applications written in any .net language and render these in the core SYSPRO product. SYSPRO 6.1 uses Fluent User Interface components which have been developed to meet Microsoft Office 2007 UI Design Guideline specifications. This provides the user with a more universal and familiar interface. Any personalizations are seamlessly migrated with SYSPRO upgrades.

Overall initiatives in SYSPRO 6.1
Centralized administration
SYSPRO is becoming increasingly sophisticated in terms of flexible set-up and security options. SYSPRO 6.1 allows users to configure these security options and enable all customization of the User Interface at the role level. There is a centralized administration application that manages all the security and a centralized tool that manages all the User Interface changes.


Enterprise Performance Management information at your fingertips
SYSPRO 6.1 provides a personalized user experience by allowing users to create and modify executive views and dashboards in any application. There are standard views provided with the software that are based on sophisticated list views and interactive charts; these can be deployed in a few seconds and will be active immediately as they use real-time information. SYSPRO Enterprise Analysis and Modeling (SEAM) provides empowered, personalized implementations. It embraces SYSPRO Process Modeling (SPM) and can be used to record all discussions and decisions made during sales and implementation. This information can be utilized to configure the SYSPRO application and provide insight into the structuring of the associated data.

Together, SPM and SEAM provide one source of the truth as well as an end-to-end alignment and understanding of all entities in an organization.

Business Process Management
Business Processes Management has been taken to a new level in SYSPRO 6.1 with the introduction of SYSPRO Workflow Services (SWS), SYSPRO Process Modeling (SPM) and SYSPRO Enterprise Analysis and Modeling (SEAM). Built into the SYSPRO product, SYSPRO Workflow Services is a workflow engine that provides the capability of designing and visibly presenting workflow processes, thus allowing greater clarity and transparency of the organization’s business processes. This is based on Microsoft technology. SYSPRO Process Modeling provides pre-configured and modeled process patterns on which the user can model the company’s unique process requirements. It provides the user with a model-driven architecture that supports management by aligning IT with company strategy, business objectives and sustainability. Furthermore, it provides a transparent view of the user’s uniquely modeled processes and organizational roles.

Business Process Management

Personalization and power-tailoring
Our customers increasingly expect a greater level of personalization from the solutions they buy. They expect control over the look-and-feel of the user interface and want to be able to incorporate their own data and their own special ways of processing that data in SYSPRO. SYSPRO recognizes this need and has developed an innovative, highly configurable User Interface (UI) that can be tailored according to users’ needs. SYSPRO 6.1 allows users to modify the behavior of any SYSPRO application and to extend business functionality. The end result is a highly configurable system designed to adapt as business needs evolve. Such changes are not affected by software upgrades. SYSPRO 6.1 also allows users to present information in the graphical format of their choice by using a combination of standards-based functionality. Each user is therefore able to shape their own aesthetically pleasing, easy-to-understand graphical format.
