Doug heads up Customer and Ecosystem Enablement for SYSPRO Africa. He is responsible for Support, Consulting, and Education/User-Enablement services to SYSPRO's channel partners and customers within sub Saharan Africa. At heart he’s a manufacturing/logistics business professional - rather than an IT techie, having directly managed different manufacturing operations and supply chains. His passion now is to help such companies discover and implement innovation using people, processes and appropriate business IT.
