SYSPRO ERP User Honored for Green Leadership

Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine Awards Samuel Strapping for Sustainability Achievements

COSTA MESA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise, mobile and cloud-based utilization, has announced that Supply & Demand Chain Executive has named Samuel Strapping Systems a Green Award winner. Samuel Strapping, leading manufacturer and supplier of steel and plastic strapping, hand tools, edge protection, stretch film equipment and consumables, as well as standard and custom engineered unitizing equipment, has utilized SYSPRO ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) to reduce inventories by $2 million while meeting customer demand and leveraging “green” practices.

Patrick Hoffmann, Director of Inventory and Operational Analysis, relates how SYSPRO ERP software not only facilitates lean production, but also green practices. “We used to create a paper trail at our plants….now, using bar coding, we no long have paper following each job…it’s all electronic,” he says. “The data is accumulated on PCs on the shop floor and fed directly into SYSPRO ERP, eliminating all paper on the shop floor. We also input all test results electronically on the shop floor, feeding the quality specs and steel characteristics via bar codes directly into the SYSPRO UniPoint quality system. We’ve eliminated the tons of paper that would follow every single one of our master coils accumulating the specs…”

Comments SYSPRO USA President Joey Benadretti, “Samuel Strapping exemplifies the ways in which a manufacturer can leverage SYSPRO ERP software to approach model plant status, leveraging the software to achieve both ‘lean’ and ‘green’ practices.”
