Implement Epicor ERP for Enterprise Success
Businesses tend to stick with old systems and procedures—the “tried and true” method. However, the “tried and true” method will eventually infringe on your company’s success. While you remain committed to your Excel spreadsheets, your competitors are driving your business to irrelevancy by improving their processes on a robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. If you stick with QuickBooks and other outdated systems for too long, you will find that data entry and processing errors are costing your workplace critical time and money.
At the end of the day, manufacturing and distribution success is all about growth, not complacency. Processes and enterprise technology cannot remain static if your company aims to continuously develop. In this post, we explain the three reasons why businesses should break old patterns and elevate their enterprise with an Epicor ERP implementation.
1. Efficient Processes
When businesses become absorbed in their routines, they often fail to realize when tasks or legacy systems are wasting time—at least, until their technology becomes so outdated or full of bugs that inefficiencies become impossible to ignore. Companies that stick with spreadsheets are seldom aware that they’re sacrificing their data integrity and hurting their bottom line. Excel just isn’t built to handle immense datasets, and employees spend hours manually entering data in multiple places when they should be focusing on value-added tasks.
With Epicor ERP, users enjoy far more robust data management. The latest version of Epicor empowers users to gain a comprehensive view of their most meaningful data. Epicor 10.2 includes a fully personalized home page on which users can easily arrange their choice of charts and data to provide optimal insight in an instant. Epicor will also automatically process and record data, further enhancing productivity and cutting down on manual data entry.
By utilizing Kanban control on your shop floor, Epicor will transform your business into a lean enterprise that cuts back on both time and money. Your ERP system will automate rote processes on the shop floor to free up more time for employees to improve product quality. Lean ERP processes streamline manufacturing stages for a quicker, smarter supply chain.
2. Modern Manufacturing
Staying ahead of the competition requires staying ahead of enterprise software trends. Epicor remains relevant after over 40 years of building solutions for discrete, MTO, ETO, CTO and other manufacturing environments by staying on top of manufacturing needs and the latest technology. Regarding architecture and deployment, Epicor ERP has always led the way. Epicor is the first in the ERP industry to provide a totally SOA-based system, and as such they are the only provider that can offer deployment for the product on-premise, hosted or single and multi-tenant software as a service (SaaS). By utilizing service-oriented architecture and supporting a variety of deployments, Epicor provides flexibility and scalability to support an array of business needs.
Epicor also empowers businesses to become global, connected enterprises. As manufacturing and distribution businesses increasingly expand their borders, Epicor houses multilingual, multicurrency and multisite functionality to streamline processes no matter the scale of your enterprise. Additionally, our increasingly mobile workforce can use Epicor ERP to easily perform a myriad of tasks and access critical information from any mobile device. Epicor Social Enterprise improves collaboration and provides insight by enabling users to keep track of projects and processes just as they would keep track of topics and accounts on a social media platform.
Sure, it’s important for an ERP system to embrace cloud computing, mobile functionality, global management and other modern manufacturing needs. But these advancements mean nothing if they are within a cumbersome interface. Fortunately, Epicor ERP is committed to eliminating the complexities of traditional ERP software, offering user-friendly tools and intuitive navigation to enable your workforce to leverage cutting-edge features for a stronger enterprise.
3. Single Source of Truth
Productive manufacturing depends on streamlined processes. By building a cohesive solution, Epicor synchronizes supply, demand and fulfillment to power end-to-end management. Comprehensive supply chain management, financial management, inventory management, project management and other modules are connected to improve transparency and accountability. Its service-oriented architecture provides a solid foundation upon which businesses execute strategies, operating effectively in the background to optimize productivity.
