K3 Syspro helps support international operation with ERP solution

K3 Syspro has been chosen to supply SYSPRO to international skin and mouth medication specialists Sinclair IS Pharma, following a stringent research period, during which Sinclair looked at a number of national ERP providers.

From the initial enquiry, K3 fully understood Sinclair’s specific requirements and the results they wanted to get out of their ERP system. It was K3’s knowledge of the product and understanding of Sinclair’s needs that led to them being chosen to supply SYSPRO.

The order is for a 24 user licence for SYSPRO, together with DataSwitch and consultancy and training services. DataSwitch offers a user friendly interface to SYSPRO, allowing non-IT professionals to automate tricky, repetitive data import and export tasks.

As a growing company, Sinclair IS Pharma has a presence in the five leading European markets and has developed a global reach through solid partnerships. As a result, they required an ERP solution that links the data from each country they operate in, complete with Inventory Optimisation, Forecasting and an MRP feed.

We purchased SYSPRO from K3, to replace a mixture of non-integrated accounting and stock control systems, supported by an extensive use of spreadsheets. Although it is a system that works reasonably well, it takes up a lot of administration time and diverts our attention away from the core work that we do,” explains Barry Linnard, Sinclair’s independent consultant that oversaw the new system specification and selection project.

The disparate systems previously in use for Sinclair were being left behind by the continuous growth of the company and no longer supported the global nature of the business. The new system, which will be rolled out in a series of different phases, provides full integration of Finance and Supply Chain and the ability to meet customer’s needs through improved demand forecasting, Material Requirements Planning and stock management.

Sinclair is currently in the process of following K3’s structured implementation methodology. User Training has been completed and a great deal of work has been done in cleansing and restructuring the core data prior to loading onto SYSPRO. The need for some software customisation was identified in the pre-sales stages, in order to cater for every overseas market that Sinclair operates in, and has now been delivered with some aspects still undergoing further user testing.”

Adds Barry, “K3 worked with us to specify and develop the use of DataSwitch to automate a number of supply chain transactions which will dramatically reduce the manual effort currently required. They have provided us with a solution that will save us a lot of time and expense compared to our previous system and one that is built around our individual needs as a company.”
