SYSPRO CRM


SYSPRO CRM is aimed specifically at small to midsize manufacturers and distributors. Unlike other customer relationship management (CRM) solutions that are built around a modular architecture, SYSPRO CRM software uses a table-based architecture to integrate all of the critical CRM functions of marketing, sales, service, and fulfillment into a single module.

User-specific dashboards can be customized for views of information suited to a user’s individual needs. SYSPRO CRM integrates with the SYSPRO ERP solution for additional efficiencies. Sales orders, check shipments, inspect customer accounts receivable, verify inventory levels, and other critical functions can be initiated directly through SYSPRO CRM without having to exit screens or navigate complex menus. The SYSPRO CRM solution is easily customizable.
