Syspro (Pty) Ltd., a producer of enterprise software, says that it has successfully obtained the Microsoft .Net Connected Logo for its Syspro e.net Solutions -- Web Applications product offering.
This makes the company one of only three ISVs in the country to be awarded the Microsoft .Net Connected Logo.
The .Net Connected Logo program aims to identify software and services that connect using XML Web services.
With Syspro obtaining the .Net Connected Logo, this means that the company's e.net Web Applications have been independently verified to share data and functionality with other applications, using XML Web Service standards, the company claims.
Syspro's e.net Web Applications are built on Microsoft Corp.'s .Net and the Syspro e.net framework, said to be a component-based architecture that enables XML Web Service applications to access the rich process and transaction functionality of the Syspro ERP using standard Internet-based protocols.
"Support for XML Web Service standards is shipped as an integral part of Syspro 6.0. All that customers need to do is enable Syspro e.net solutions and they are ready to deploy business application functionality across their 'extended enterprise'," says Phil Duff, CEO of Syspro.
"The number of potential applications is endless. We already have a growing customer base and developer community accessing our 'business objects' to develop the deep and industry specific functionality they need in order to achieve higher-levels of execution. Being able to use the Microsoft .Net Connected Logo will further strength our market position as a leader in the mid-tier ERP II market space," he says.
Commenting on the latest Syspro developments, Duff says his company recently carried out an online product survey in order to fully understand its customers' expectations.
Apparently, the company will be releasing a new infantry optimization module to its ERP offering, something which its customers had to previously source from third parties.
"We are not expecting the new module to bring us instant millions, but it will encourage companies to buy our total package," he concludes.
