Epicor Kinetic: your scalable platform for growth

In the previous blogs in our series, we looked at the typical challenges for manufacturers who manage operations using non-specialist software, like spreadsheets and emails. We also discussed the fact that the solution to these challenges — an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system — may have seemed out of reach for smaller companies, given the cost and business disruption involved in a typical implementation.

To help smaller companies benefit from a manufacturing-specific ERP solution, Epicor has developed an affordable proposition for smaller manufacturers that's ready to use within a few months. Costing less than half the usual price of a traditional ERP deployment, it provides standardized core ERP functionality that allows smaller manufacturers to experience benefits such as:

  • A single point of access into the same set of data for everyone, providing a single source of truth
  • Increased visibility of data that drives better decision-making
  • Simplified collaboration that leads to productivity improvements
  • Secure remote access that enables your business to keep on working
  • Best-practice processes that add structure to help businesses mature their operations

A scalable foundation for growth

For any company that attempts to run its business on spreadsheets, there will come a time when that approach can't keep pace anymore. If — like the majority of manufacturers we talk to — you're focused on growth, then you'll want a scalable platform to support it.

The Kinetic (new name for Epicor ERP) proposition provides the foundation you need. It lets you bring all your data and information together in one integrated system, so that users can make informed decisions at every stage of the value chain — including tracking of KPIs and identifying and understanding operational issues in real time.

You'll be able to support and manage every part of your growing business with Kinetic, including quote-to-cash and purchase-to-pay.

You'll also have the ability to add other modules in the future that aren't part of the core proposition. These include eCommerce solutions, that let you offer customers a digital shopping experience; and mobile solutions, that make it easy to transact business where and when it happens for increased efficiency and enhanced customer service.

Running your business on Kinetic can also stand you in good stead with your customers. Let's say you typically supply parts or items to Tier 1 manufacturers within an extended supply chain. Those companies routinely conduct rigorous supplier selection processes involving assessments of how potential suppliers run their business. Running yours on Kinetic can help to boost a prospective customer's confidence in the robustness of your operations, as well as your ability to integrate seamlessly into their supply chain.

Are you ready to advance your business?

The Kinetic proposition for smaller manufacturers starts at €115,000* — and typically comes in at less than half the usual cost of a typical ERP installation. It can be ready to use in three to six months — much faster than a traditional solution generally allows.
