Dynacast Mexico Implements Epicor ERP 10


AUSTIN, Texas and MONTERREY, Mexico, February 24, 2015

AUSTIN, Texas and MONTERREY, Mexico, February 24, 2015 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, announced that Dynacast Mexico, a global manufacturer of small, engineered metal components, has gone live with its latest enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution Epicor ERP 10 standardizing processes to support corporate goals and achieve greater operational efficiency.

Dynacast Mexico offers robust solutions to companies in the automotive, consumer electronics, healthcare, hardware, computers and peripherals, and other industries. Dynacast Mexico is part of Dynacast International, which has its global headquarters based in Charlotte, North Carolina, and currently operates 20 manufacturing facilities in 16 countries around the world. Dynacast Mexico has 300 employees and has achieved growth offering value-added solutions and services to its customers by redesigning less costly components and assemblies through precision-engineered die casting -- strengthened by the company's technical expertise, production efficiency, and quality planning.

With an eye on continued growth, Dynacast Mexico realized it was time to search for a technology solution that would support its business goals. The evaluation process of diverse technology platforms took a year to complete, with the company's final decision being Epicor ERP 10. Dynacast International already had Epicor ERP 9 implemented at a number of other plants in the company, which made for an excellent cost-benefit relationship fulfilling Dynacast Mexico's business needs and strategic objectives with the Epicor ERP 10 platform. Dynacast Mexico will benefit from and be able to take continued advantage of the knowledge and experience of Dynacast employees at other plants, as they integrate the Epicor platform to the company's overall production management and supply chain strategy.

"With Epicor the synergy already existed, which was reflected in a perfectly coordinated selection and implementation process," said Leonardo Rivas, project manager, Dynacast Mexico. "The project was set to be implemented in a six-month timeframe, and we were able to go live according to plan."

Dynacast Mexico currently has 18 users up and running, and as the implementation was a success, the company is now planning to increase the number of users. The project continues to evolve as Dynacast Mexico focuses on continuous improvement aligned with implementation and industry best practices. As part of the continued roll-out plan, the company is assigning additional key users for every department so training can be delivered by team members in each department. Additionally, training documents, handbooks and booklets are being developed outlining guidelines specific for Dynacast Mexico workers.

"The Epicor technical support and customer services teams have been a tremendous resource, assisting us with needed configuration adjustments to ensure compliance with Mexican laws and requirements," added Rivas.

"We are pleased to welcome Dynacast Mexico to the Epicor user community," Gunther Barajas, regional director, Epicor Latin America. "Our top priority is to deliver added-value to our customers through our innovative software solutions, services and support -- their success, continued growth and profitability are ultimately our success. From software selection, through implementation, go live and beyond -- we believe Dynacast Mexico is just beginning to realize the benefits of the Epicor ERP 10 platform."
