K3 Syspro becomes NexSys to reflect ERP+ portfolio


Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) specialist K3 Syspro has rebranded to NexSys Solutions Limited as part of a strategic move to better represent its services and solutions. The new brand was revealed during the company’s annual Customer Day at the Jaguar Experience Centre in Birmingham in front of over 150 customers and partners.

The company remains an elite partner of SYSPRO ERP, specialising in delivering best-of-breed solutions to customers. This involves integrating its own technologies with SYSPRO at the core to enable customers to gain maximum visibility over business-critical data, thereby aiding aid rapid decision-making.

Nick McGrane, managing director of NexSys, explained how the new name better reflects the company’s proposition. “We’re going through a period of change where businesses are having to continually evolve, adapt and update their proposition in order to remain competitive. Innovative solutions are critical to this and throughout our near 40-year history, we have been committed to providing best-of-breed solutions that help our customers thrive.”

“We are excited about the future that digital transformation offers for companies looking to power business growth through advancing technologies. SYSPRO ERP remains central to our solutions, complimented by our own DataSwitch integration tool, our Orchard warehouse management technology, and Making Tax Digital solution. Our focus is on helping businesses gain a competitive advantage by adopting appropriate technologies which integrate to solve pressing challenges, and our rebrand reflects this. As part of the global K3 group, NexSys has access to complementary technologies, expertise and support which benefit our customers.”

K3 Syspro was established in 1983 under the previous name of McGuffie Brunton. In 2007, the firm was acquired by the K3 Business Technology Group for £12.5 million, becoming a focal point in the K3 portfolio for manufacturing and distribution technologies. NexSys remains a K3 company and will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2023.

McGrane continued: “We may have a new name and brand, but we retain our ethos of putting people at the heart of our operations. Our customers know that an investment in SYSPRO is not just an investment in an ERP product, but an investment in a long-lasting partnership with us.

“We have also carried over our culture from K3 Syspro. We remain customer-focused and approachable, as extensions to our customers’ technology project teams. Most of our own people have been with us since the McGuffie Brunton days. Indeed, I have worked my way up through the company over the past few decades and remain proud of everything we have achieved. With a new name, a new brand, and continually developing technology innovatively, we remain well positioned to help our customers navigate the future.”
