Synergy Resources Partners With Diverse Technology Solutions to Bring VISUAL ERP to the Cloud

Central Islip, NY – (1/20/16) Synergy Resources, the largest Value Added Reseller and service provider of Infor’s VISUAL ERP software has announced a partnership with Diverse Technology Solutions (DTS), a leading provider of cloud hosting and technology consulting services.

Synergy Resources has certified DTS as their exclusive cloud hosting provider licensed to run VISUAL ERP manufacturing software “in the cloud”. Infor VISUAL ERP is designed for Engineer to Order, custom, make to order, configure and assemble to order, as well as make to stock manufacturing companies. Its unique capabilities improve the business performance of manufacturing companies by providing greater visibility into costs of manufacturing, scheduling and on-time delivery, and areas to improve the quality of the manufacturing materials and processes.

The partnership between Synergy and DTS enables access to the VISUAL ERP software through the cloud. This will allow manufacturing companies to achieve a lower cost of IT ownership, by offloading hardware infrastructure maintenance. The product will be sold directly by Synergy Resources under the name “Synergy Cloud” powered by Diverse Technology Solutions. As a part of both organizations dedication to helping businesses leverage technology to accomplish their goals, Synergy Cloud will grant an opportunity to improve productivity by having access to VISUAL ERP from any device, anytime, anywhere.

Clayton Hart, Managing Partner of Diverse Technology Solutions, stated “We are excited to launch this new venture with Synergy Resources. We worked diligently to customize our partner program to meet Synergy’s goals and all their requirements to develop this new product and cloud strategy with their management team.”

Mark Lilly, Partner and Director of Sales & Marketing of Synergy Resources stated, “We are very excited to be able to provide a complete infrastructure solution along with our current software offerings to our clients. This gives our clients the option to run their VISUAL software along with back office Microsoft tools in the cloud.”

Gene Caiola, Partner and Director of Services of Synergy Resources stated, “This is very different from using just any hosting platform. Synergy knows VISUAL, so we are adding value by performing certain IT tasks such as updates and backups to Microsoft tools and VISUAL for our clients. This allows them to refocus internal IT resources to tasks or projects that have a much bigger return: Business performance metrics and reporting, for example.”

S.I. Howard Glass Certified to the ISO 9001 Standard!

Synergy Resources is excited to announce that S.I. Howard Glass has just been certified to the ISO 9001 standard!  A third generation family owned business in Massachusetts, Howard Glass specializes in the manufacturing of custom made flat glass parts for the industrial, scientific, and medical industries.   A visual customer since 2011, Howard Glass undertook an ISO 9001 implementation, in conjunction with a series of Continuous Improvement and Lean Manufacturing programs including Kaizen, 5S, and TPM Events, beginning in October of 2013. 

This project was made possible with the assistance of a Massachusetts Workforce Training Fund Grant.  Synergy Resources worked with Howard Glass through the Grant Preparation and Application Process, as well as facilitating the ISO 9001 program implementation in conjunction with the Continuous Improvement program events. 

During this time Howard Glass has improved to 90 – 95% On Time Delivery from less than 70% over the last  year and a half.  They have continued to meet their growth goals, and expect to increase their revenue based on the recent certification.  The unique blending of the Quality Management System requirements with Continuous Improvement events helped to create a system that is embedded within the structure of day to day operations. 

The consultants of Synergy Resources have been invaluable to us.  Their comprehensive knowledge of industry standards and best practices, combined with their tireless efforts of training our people, enabled us to achieve our goals in such a short amount of time.  We are by far a better company than we were one year ago.” – Elizabeth Keefe, VP of Operations at S.I.
