OMAX Corporation chooses SYSPRO financials to interface with the company's custom, incumbent ERP solution

SYSPRO, a developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, has announced that OMAX Corporation, a leading machinery and equipment manufacturer and provider of precision-engineered, computer-controlled, multi-axis (X-Y) abrasivejet systems for use in manufacturing environments, has chosen SYSPRO financials to interface with the company's custom, incumbent ERP solution. According to Dr. John Olsen, OMAX Vice President, growth forced the company to seek a new ERP solution to accommodate the company's complex multi-mode manufacturing operations.

OMAX, based in Kent, Washington, had been utilizing an off the shelf software solution; however, the system did not support their business specific unique requirements for lean manufacturing and was not fully integrated to the software's financials. After an installation failure of a competitive ERP solution, OMAX wrote off the "disaster," opting to build its own Web-based MRP solution – "Insight" – coupling it with an open and flexible financial systems solution. Following an extensive search, Omax opted for SYSPRO financials as the ideal fit.

Says Dr. Olsen, "Our Insight manufacturing software is integrated with SYSPRO financials via SYSPRO e.net. We simply run our in-house manufacturing software as Window ‘panes' within the SYSPRO accounting solution, so when we write purchase orders and sales orders in OMAX Insight, the data is passed onto SYSPRO accounting in real-time, providing the most current, up to date data to facilitate the most effective decision making and enhance customer service." Dr. Olsen notes, "The best-in-class technology foundation that SYSPRO offers coupled with SYSPRO e-.net solutions makes the integration of external systems into SYSPRO seamless."
