SYSPRO the leading global supplier of on-premise, cloud and mobile Business ERP Software for manufacturers and distributors, announced Thursday  an initiative between its local distributor, Epictech Inc. (Epictech) and the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) to integrate the SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) suite into their curricula. This strategic alliance will start with the Computer Science Program curriculum offered by the university in an aim to further support the growing demand for qualified IT professionals in the manufacturing and distribution industries.

SYSPRO believes in the value of personal development through education and training. Through its global Academic Alliance Program, it is supporting educational institutions by providing solutions that can be used as teaching tools. “We’re excited to be furthering our Academic Alliance Program in Asia through Ateneo. Through this course, students will have the added competitive edge needed for future employment,” said Mr. Frederick Szto, COO Asia, SYSPRO Software.

Under the partnership between Epictech and ADMU, approximately 70 students per year, comprised of juniors and seniors, will benefit from the addition of the SYSPRO ERP product suite into the curricula beginning this July. The ERP solution will enable the students and provide them with training in supply chain, e.Net, VBScripting, crystal reports and executive dashboards. With the additional knowledge in enterprise systems, students will receive exposure to real world scenarios and the latest IT technology skills that will help them gain future employment.

By becoming a global SYSPRO academic alliance partner, we know that our students are getting the best training that they deserve,” Dr. Evangeline Bautista, Dean, School of Science and Engineering, ADMU affirmed.

Meanwhile, as Epictech actively supports educational institutions in the delivery of educational curricula that directly support the development of operations and supply chain focused programs, the company is committed to bring the best service to its new academic partner, ADMU.

“We at Epictech are very happy to be partnering with the Ateneo de Manila University. The inclusion of a world class ERP system into the curriculum will provide more students the qualifications that will help them become more competitive in the fields of manufacturing and distribution management.
