Sylvie NonhebelProtean ElectricAutomotive

“We have long been a user of SYSPRO software and recently upgraded our business critical systems to SYSPRO 6.1. This gave us the ability to automate our invoicing and sales processes, which were previously labour intensive.”

Ken JordanLawson FusesElectronics

“K3 suggested SinglePoint and demonstrated how it could be tailored to suit our business. We were so impressed with the potential of the solution that we asked K3 to set about the installation process straightaway.”

Steve DuplockCobhamAerospace

“Now that we have mobile scanners installed, we have made the process of movements in stock much faster than it was before because we are able to send data to SYSPRO directly from the shop floor.”
