Epicor Delivers Ultimate Freedom of Choice for ERP Deployment to Adapt to Changing Business Demands
IMTS 2014 - CHICAGO, Booth E-3324 and AUSTIN, TX, September 10, 2014 -- Empowering customers with 'freedom of choice' in enterprise resource planning (ERP) deployment models, Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced growing momentum for their cloud deployed Epicor ERP version 10.
In the spring, Epicor introduced ERP version 10 built on agile technology that eliminates complexity to make ERP easier to use, more collaborative and more responsive than ever before. Epicor ERP is designed to support today's business imperatives: social collaboration, deployment flexibility, accelerated performance and broad device accessibility.
"We provide a 'no compromise' offering, delivering world class functionality and true freedom of choice when it comes to deployment because Epicor ERP is the exact same solution deployed on-premises as it is in the cloud," said Craig Downing, senior director, global cloud marketing at Epicor. "We've seen the number of subscriber seats for cloud ERP deployments double in the past 6 months compared to the previous period. It's clear that enterprises are ready for the cloud, and the cloud is ready for enterprise ERP. Although, important to note that the final decision should be based on an organization's business or technical requirements to put the customer at the center of the experience whether cloud, on-premises deployment or hybrid."
A recent study commissioned by Epicor revealed that choice is important, as 64 percent of the survey respondents favor a cloud deployment, or the ability to mix and match cloud, on-premises or remote servers. However, only 20% of respondents surveyed indicated a desire to continue to invest in legacy on-premises.
Across multiple devices - from tablets to PCs - and expanded deployment choices with on-premises, cloud or managed service, Epicor ERP 10 delivers a consistent experience in a single solution. The powerful Epicor ICE Business Architecture, the foundation of Epicor ERP 10, is the framework that enables organizations to map Epicor ERP to specific business rules and processes, without changing source code. This drives increased performance, scalability, and ease of use, while reducing the cost and complexity of doing business leveraging a 100% Microsoft® technology stack.
Building Business in the Cloud
Based in the Chicago area, Chirch Global Manufacturing, LLC is a leading manufacturer of metal stampings and sheet metal fabrications. To compete on a global scale, the company knew it needed to adopt a global perspective and was committed to investing in its U.S. manufacturing operations. After a previous acquisition of another company, Chirch recognized technology was the key to provide the agility and responsiveness needed for hybrid onshore/offshore business model, but couldn't afford expensive technology deployments or costly in-house IT resources. Chirch selected the on-demand Epicor Cloud ERP solution specifically designed for small and mid-sized manufacturers, to support the ability to access information anywhere for seamless global 24/7 operations.
"Since deployment, on-time delivery score has increased to over 95%," said Anthony L. Chirchirillo, CEO at Chirch Global Manufacturing, LLC. "Now more than ever, we are in a position to extend our leadership in the manufacturing industry and continue our Epicor partnership with the cloud Epicor ERP version 10 beta program. So far, we have already seen drastic improvement on speed and performance with the new responsive user centric design."
The company's leading strategy encompasses the Chirch Global Manufacturing Network that is comprised of business owners including small to medium size manufacturing companies that collectively bring added-value to customers in the increasingly competitive and complex global manufacturing playing field.
"As we increase operations, we count on Epicor to provide the technology foundation that enables us to focus on customer needs first. Epicor ERP 10 in the cloud will help us advance our business and keep up with ongoing changes in manufacturing," continued Chirchirillo.
