SYSPRO was founded in 1978 [1] as one of the world's first PC-based providers of ERP software. It has since gone on to win several major awards for software excellence and has established an ongoing presence in the sometimes volatile mid-sized enterprise market.[2] As a privately held company, it seems to have been somewhat immune to market shocks and has reported steady growth in its customer base. In 2011, it reports a customer base of over 14,500 licensed companies in more than 60 countries worldwide.[3]

SYSPRO is marketed through regional territory distribution centers and a global reseller network in the United States, Canada, Africa, Asia Pacific, Australia and United Kingdom. North America constitutes an estimated 60 percent of the customer base.
