SYSPRO Wins ERP Contract with Aircraft Parts Manufacturer

Blair-HSM Selects SYSPRO Over Epicor Upgrade; Agility, Inventory Control, Supply Chain Management, Superior Costing Capabilities All Factors

COSTA MESA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 10, 2009 — SYSPRO, a provider of visionary ERP for the manufacturing pragmatist, has today announced that the company has won a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) contract from Blair-HSM, a Medford, NY-based manufacturer and supplier of hydraulic actuators, mechanical and landing gear assemblies as well as a variety of kits and parts for commercial and military aircraft. SYSPRO prevailed in a direct compete against Epicor via SYSPRO reseller Edgeware Computers of Marietta, Ga.

According to Robert Lehmann, Blair-HSM vice president, the choice of SYSPRO was based on the company’s need for superior supply chain management, tighter inventory controls and a more agile approach to market demands. “SYSPRO will enable us to be more responsive to ever changing business requirements,” says Lehmann.

Derek Jenkins, Edgeware president, adds, “Blair-HSM had been utilizing Epicor, but the software’s inability to accurately cost jobs was adversely affecting the business. SYSPRO’s superb costing capabilities were definitely a factor in Blair-HSM’s selection.”

SYSPRO software will be utilized by the two units comprising Blair-HSM, Blair Industries and HSM Machine Works. Blair Industries produces hydraulic actuators, mechanical assemblies, a wide variety of kits and complete landing gear assemblies. HSM produces structural landing gear components and airframe machined parts as well as hydraulic components.

SYSPRO’s more thoughtful approach to adopting new technology, such as web services and SOA platforms, also reflects the desires of its buyers who are driven by business needs and not by the latest headlines. This exemplifies SYSPRO’s ongoing strategy of helping to simplify the success of its customers. SYSPRO calls its buyer landscape “PragmaVision™,” consisting of pragmatic, visionary ERP executives that are driven by a desire for smart, but aggressive market growth.
