SYSPRO Asia Pacific Launches SYSPRO Academy to Address Asia Pacific’s Growth

SYDNEY, Jan. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — SYSPRO, a global vendor of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services, today announced the launch of SYSPRO academy to meet SYSPRO’s growth in the Asian market.

SYSPRO Asia Pacific, which provides Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications to businesses throughout Asia Pacific, has announced the year-long programme which has been set up and funded independently. The academy is opened to IT professionals that wanted to a make a career switch to become an ERP consultant.  Unlike many academy schemes, graduates of this academy will result in full time positions within the company and it also encompasses real life on-the-job training as part of this programme.

SYSPRO’s General Manager Shaun Butler explained the move: "Something that every industry is facing is a lack of skills and many young people often bemoan the lack of options available to them when it comes to gaining real life work experience. The SYSPRO Academy solves both issues. It allows us to give young professionals an exciting introduction to business systems consultancy and the SYSPRO ERP product itself, while ensuring that we always have the highest quality of skills and experience in our business for the long term."

Asia Pacific is facing a human resource crisis in many industries not only in the IT sector.  As more Asian economies drive towards being skill driven, the demand for resources to meet this demand is becoming critical.

Shaun adds: "The investment we’re making in this academy is also a step forward in our commitment to Asia. The Asian market continues to be our strongest growing region and the launch of this academy demonstrates our continual commitment to this region."
