Analyzing MAPICS’ Further Steps After Frontstep
The former staunch IBM AS/400-based ERP supplier to mid-market manufacturing companies, MAPICS, has become quite a larger vendor and with a wider choice of products due to the recent acquisition of Frontstep and its entire product line, which included ERP, CRM, and SCM, on a single Microsoft .NET-based technology platform. However, as the customers from both camps have been uncertain of their provider's strategy, given that a bigger size brings about the need to rationalize multiple products within the same marketplace, after a few months long period of buried heads and brainstorming sessions, MAPICS has lately been engaged in explaining its rationale, as to set many customers' minds at ease.

MAPICS GPS: former competitor Frontstep (see MAPICS To Leap Forward In A Frontstep Way ), has shown both the signs of significant changes but also a persistence of a number of its historically recognizable invariant tenets of operation. The former steadfast IBM iSeries (formerly IBM AS/400 )-based ERP supplier to mid-market manufacturing companies, MAPICS, has since indeed become quite a larger vendor and with a wider choice of products, having recently acquired a Microsoft .NET -based competitor.

MAPICS: Will Customer Satisfaction be Enough?
MAPICS has consistently scored above average in the following customer-service & support benchmarks: reliability, quality of support, vendor stability, ease of doing business, and affiliate product and industry knowledge. However, limited platform support means that AS/400 products will contribute more than 50% of total license revenue within next 5 years. Furthermore, for the next 18 months, approx. 80% of license revenue will come from its existing customer base, who will want to either replace an old MAPICS product or add new modules to an existing MAPICS XA installation.

MAPICS GPS: and large corporate divisions. MAPICS revenues in fiscal 1998 were $130 million. IBM launched MAPICS II (Manufacturing Accounting and Production Information Control System) software in 1978. It was the first MRP system commercially available for manufacturing enterprises and held the lion s share of the marketplace for many years, until the advent of client-server computing and emergence of the new generation of MRP systems, namely ERP.

Rapidly Consolidating Enterprise Applications Market: The Worlds of Organic Growers and Aggressive Consolidators

Symix Sytems: Shifting SME s Focus to Their Customers
Symix is regarded as the originator of the extended ERP concept (CSRP), which has proven to be so attractive to mid-market enterprises that two other leading mid-market vendors entered into specific R&D and licensing agreements with Symix to gain access to its SyteAPS. Despite a highly competitive environment, we predict that Symix Systems will reach $250 million in revenues within the next 3 years, based on attractiveness of its product for discrete manufacturing and distribution within Small-to-Medium Enterprises (SME).

MAPICS GPS: and new platforms (e.g. MAPICS or Intentia International).
