Get your business fit for the future with Epicor ERP

In our previous blog, we looked at the typical challenges manufacturers face when they use non-specialist software, like spreadsheets and emails, to manage their operations. Time-consuming manual calculations, the risk of human error around data re-entry, and the limited insight you can gain into business performance — all make it difficult to identity opportunities for improvement and stay on track for growth.

For smaller manufacturers, however, the ideal alternative — an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution — may have seemed out of reach. Too expensive, too long to wait for go-live, or an implementation that would be too disruptive to everyday business operations. That's why Epicor has developed an ERP proposition that meets your needs for affordability as well as smooth and rapid deployment.

Drawing on many years of experience of working with all types of manufacturers, we've ensured this proposition provides all the functionality you need to help you make your business more collaborative, efficient and future proof.

What's included in the solution

The solution provides smaller manufacturing companies with standardized core ERP functionality for:

Sales management. Produce accurate estimates, streamline your order-to-cash cycle, and ensure flawless order fulfilment.

Product management. Improve collaboration between engineering, procurement, production, sales and QA teams.

Planning and scheduling. Anticipate and respond to changes in customer demand to minimize downtime and disruption.

Supply chain management. Manage your supply chain more efficiently, from forecasting to fulfilment.

Production management. Simplify processes, reduce waste and improve profitability.

Financials. Manage financial operations and gain powerful insights into performance, expense and risk.

We can deploy your solution in the cloud or on your premises, depending on your preference. We can migrate your existing data into the solution, and provide training for your teams.
