Keeping Same Headcount, Bodypoint Leans Operations, Experiences 300% New Market Growth, Increases Revenues by 20% with SYSPRO ERP Software

COSTA MESA, Calif. – May 18, 2011 --  May, 2011 – SYSPRO, a global, independent developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, has announced that Bodypoint, Inc., a leading medical device manufacturer of wheelchair positioning and support products, headquartered in Seattle, WA, has revealed that SYSPRO ERP software has helped the company to enhance operational efficiencies resulting in a 300% increase in new market growth and a revenues increase of 20% without the need to add headcount.

According to Mike Conklin, Technical Process Manager, “The [SYSPRO ERP] system allows us to be much leaner and much more flexible.  We can deliver product in a way the customer wants it.  We can offer complex pricing and discounting methods.  We can resolve compliance issues using ECC [SYSPRO Engineering Change Control].  We have deeper integration and visibility with our processes.  Integrated accounting has reduced errors and increased capacity.  Our reporting has greatly improved, and our shipping is more accurate, adding customer value with shipping notifications through the SYSPRO integrated shipping solution.” 

He continues:  “Most all our business processes have become automated with improvements in deliverables.  We now have historical sales data for sales analysis and can build custom reports and metrics through SYSPRO reporting services.  International markets require complex product instructions in multiple languages by unique product.  SYSPRO allows us to print product instructions for packaging on demand by product and country.”

Bodypoint, which globally targets medical device manufacturers, durable medical equipment makers and service providers and wheelchair end-users, also designs custom products for manufacturers of wheelchairs. The ability of the comprehensive, ‘single DNA,’ SYSPRO ERP solution to handle “multi-mode” manufacturing enables Bodypoint to “Make to Order” or “Engineer to Order” as well as “Make to Stock.”

According to Conklin, Bodypoint sought new ERP software to replace more than 5 non-integrated software solutions.   The disparate systems were inflexible and prone to errors through multiple data inputs, and they were limiting company growth with slow order turnaround and an inability to support company initiatives.

After evaluating numerous software solutions, Bodypoint chose SYSPRO ERP.  Says Conklin, “The overall value is great.  Compared to other systems within our budget and business size, there is much more offered with SYSPRO.  It’s an open system that will grow with us as our needs change.”

He adds, “Our SYSPRO reseller was able to clearly understand our needs and pain points . . .  Our reseller seemed easily able to prove with honesty that SYSPRO was the best solution to get us to our future state.  They met our special requirements and continue to meet our needs through great customer service.”

Conklin summarizes: “[With SYSPRO] we can now deliver on contracts and commitments the way the customer prefers.  Our processes are integrated so visibility has increased from quotations to invoicing, allowing us to respond more quickly, efficiently and with higher accuracy.”
