ProAlpha Business Solutions Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators
The proALPHA Group specializes in ERP applications for midmarket primarily in German-speaking countries in Europe. The company offers proALPHA ERP, which provides materials management, production planning and control, planning and scheduling, fixed asset management, managerial accounting, personnel management, project management, document management, logistics, finance, and accounting, as well as other functions such as customer relationship management and supply chain management.
Despite the generally weak economy in Western Europe where it derives much of its business, the 21-year-old proALPHA has shown steady growth over the past four years. proALPHA ERP is client-server based and it has yet to articulate its Cloud strategy.
The majority of its customers are mid-sized companies in Germany and increased competition from SAP and others in the midmarket could leave proALPHA with no choice but to go upmarket. The key may well be boosting its international sales activities through more localization enhancements in order to help its German customers further their global expansion plans as well.
In March 2018, proALPHA released the new version of the comprehensive ERP solution proALPHA focuses on the international business of small and mid-sized manufacturing and trading companies. Version 7.1 comes with numerous new and extended functions, especially in accounting. Simulation options for multi-resource planning and comprehensive support of mobile warehouse and production logistics are further highlights. Pilot customers confirm that their upgrade to the new version went smoothly and that they have already seen significant process improvements and cost savings.
