Industrial Manufacturer Upgrades from 35-Year-Old System to Modern ERP in the Cloud as a Growth Enabler
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software
to promote business growth, today announced CJT Koolcarb, Inc. has chosen the award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, deployed in the cloud
to improve collaboration, provide more reliable access to key data, and increase operational efficiency among its manufacturing and distribution groups.
CJT Koolcarb, Inc. produces coolant and non-coolant fed solid carbide and carbide-tipped drills, reamers, and end mills as well as PCD (polycrystalline diamond) tools used in the aerospace and automotive industries. The company is headquartered in Carol Stream, Illinois and has more than 120 employees in three locations.
“With both manufacturing and distribution groups in multiple locations and on multiple currencies, we needed a powerful solution that could address our needs as we continue to grow,” said Andrew Piasecki, President and CEO, CJT Koolcarb, Inc. “We assembled a cross-functional team and spent a number of months looking at various ERP solutions, and we found Epicor Cloud ERP offered the best fit for our organization.”
Racing Ahead with Modern Cloud Capabilities
is replacing a 35-year-old Unix-based system that doesn’t offer access to real-time information — a crucial requirement for the company’s field sales teams that will reduce the sales cycle, improve the customer experience, and accelerate growth. Additionally, CJT Koolcarb executives concluded a cloud deployment was a cost-effective option that would make it easier for users in different locations to work together seamlessly.
“Improved collaboration and access to real-time data are both key tenets of Epicor ERP, and that is especially true for cloud-based users across multiple locations,” said Craig Downing, senior director, product marketing for Epicor. “By relying on Epicor to manage software updates and data security, organizations like CJT Koolcarb, Inc. who opt for cloud deployments are able to focus their time and energy on growing their business.”
“We have just begun our implementation, and our team is already identifying opportunities to optimize operational efficiency and improve our previous business processes,” Piasecki continued. “We’re confident using this technology will help us better manage our business and better serve our customer base. It’s a very exciting time at our company.”
