SYSPRO ERP Chosen by Manufacturer of Mannequins, Visual Displays and Custom Sculptures

May 5, 2015 | By Business Wire News


SYSPRO, a provider of best-of-breed, award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for on-premise, cloud-based and mobile utilization, today announced that Los Angeles, CA-based Silvestri Studio, Inc. has selected SYSPRO ERP to provide a foundation for future company growth. Silvestri, which maintains a 114,000 square foot facility in the capital of the motion picture industry, a major customer, is a manufacturer of mannequins, forms, props, fixtures and other decoratives. The company originally was formed 75 years ago to produce props and sets for movies and TV productions. In fact, the company’s resume includes the manufacture of sets and props for award-winning films, such as “Ben Hur” and “Cleopatra,” and also for popular television shows, including “I Love Lucy.”

According to Jim Mattor, Senior Vice President, the company had been utilizing Macola Progression Workflow Explorer, but fears of the discontinuance of the software by Macola and the need to select an ERP platform that could sustain rapid growth led Silvestri to select SYSPRO ERP Software. Mattor references the software’s multi-features, self-tailoring capabilities and ease-of-use as factors leading to the decision.

Mattor describes the Silvestri sales force as “spread out across the country,” remarking the remote and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) capabilities of SYSPRO ERP will “make life easier.” He notes: “We continue to look for the latest technologies for materials, design and production to keep Silvestri California a leader in the field of retail design,” implying that the same dedication prompted Silvestri to go with SYSPRO ERP.
