"Architecture more than anything put Epicor over the top. Our old systems eventually became quite labor-intensive and difficult to change. The ability to specify individual processes without modifying any underlying infrastructure is huge for us."
"The savings we achieved through the Epicor ERP solution have been tremendous. Through the enhanced ability to cross-reference our materials with order histories, we were able to reduce our inventory by 10 percent within the first six months of implementation. This has allowed us to pre-order 40 percent of our raw material and negotiate lower prices with vendors, resulting in significant cost savings and discounts."
“We have always prided ourselves on shipping most orders the same day. Before, we had to have tons of inventory on the shelf just in case. With Epicor ERP, we now manufacture items faster due to the enhanced ability to forecast customer buyer trends… We’ve even been able to tie our manufacturing process to the seasonal demands of customers. This has enabled us to remove a ridiculous amount of unneeded inventory from our shelves.”

How Leading Manufacturing Organizations Select ERP to Support Their Growth Strategies According to Aberdeen’s Business Management and ERP Study, the number one challenge facing today’s manufacturers is "managing growth expectations": As organizations grow, they are faced with more complex operations and decisions, are exposed to more competitors, and incur increased costs that must be minimized.

How to Eliminate Inefficiency to Propel Your Growth—and Protect Your BrandAs a manufacturer, you understand that to grow in today’s competitive global markets means that your business must operate with increasing efficiency.
