New partnership enables mobile solutions 10 November 2015

Manufacturing and distribution businesses looking for instantaneous fast transactions from the shop floor now have a wider choice of mobile solutions after K3 Syspro, a specialist ERP solution provider, announced a unique partnership with software automation expert Afrisoft Africa (Pty) Ltd.

The partnership has made K3 Syspro a key reseller of TransLution™ mobile software for the UK and Europe, adding to its already impressive mobile product range. The product complements K3 Syspro’s existing SYSPRO Espresso product, which was introduced with the recent SYSPRO 7 upgrade.

TransLution is built for operation directly from the shopfloor, enabling production staff to update and add live stock and barcode information on the move and send data directly to their ERP application. With the flexibility to provide a multitude of methods to achieve the mobile functionality that SYSPRO users demand, TransLution enables the company to offer a mobile solution to every type of SYSPRO user.

TransLution software enables SYSPRO users to simplify and accelerate their production processes by capturing, processing, and analysing production data with a mobile solution for the shopfloor. It integrates mobile scanners, touchscreen devices, and other plant equipment seamlessly into SYSPRO, allowing traditional manual tasks such as stock taking or production records to be automated and streamlined.

Russell Kleyn, director at Afrisoft Africa, added: “TransLution software is a good fit for many of K3 Syspro’s customers. Our solution not only simplifies standard tasks, but creates a system that integrates seamlessly into SYSPRO to streamline data input and reduce errors. We are looking forward to a successful partnership, providing manufacturing and distribution companies with a holistic solution that will truly benefit them.”
