Chirch Global Manufacturing Recognized as a Protostar in the Constellation SuperNova Awards in the Cloud Computing Category


Constellation Research announced the “Protostar” winners (semifinalists) in the inaugural Constellation SuperNova Awards, so like any proud vendor we had to make some noise for our customer Chirch Global Manufacturing who is recognized in the Cloud Computing category. Chirch Global is among the few that have overcome the odds in successfully applying emerging and disruptive technologies within their organizations.

Chirch Global was the beta-site for Epicor’s launch of its comprehensive cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) system targeting small to midsize manufacturers who are competing in a global environment. Chirch Global was a first-mover using this technology to substantively enhance its manufacturing operations.

Prior to Chirch Global’s implementation of Epicor’s cloud offering, the company was using an outdated server-based manufacturing system dating back to the early 1990s. The system was antiquated, lacked documentation, and was unable to provide sufficient management reporting. Chirch Global wanted to make a quantum leap improvement in managing its business using state-of-the-art technology and selected Epicor Manufacturing Express Edition .

Today, Chirch Global has access to a robust total ERP system that is accessible to all users via the cloud. The use of this new technology has enabled management to virtually manage its business in an online, real-time environment and supports the ability to access information anywhere to support seamless global 24/7 operations.

It’s no wonder Constellation Research picked Chirch Global from the pool of applicants. “The judges have spoken and these are the best of the best among the 70 submissions,” noted R “Ray” Wang, principal analyst and CEO, Constellation Research, Inc. “The competition was fierce and the Protostars selected have what it takes to be the next stage – SuperNova. Both judges and the general public will have a chance to vote and we look forward to recognizing the finalists.”

SuperNova finalists will be recognized at a gala dinner on October 28, 2011 in Scottsdale, Arizona hosted by Constellation Research. As Wang mentioned, the general public will have the chance to vote for the Protostars. Read more about how Chirch Global battled the odds to effect change in their organization.
