As innovation propels your manufacturing business growth, enterprise resource planning—the very backbone of your information systems—must keep pace. Epicor understands that manufacturers worldwide must identify, consider, and respond to a new set of challenges and variables each day. Some challenges result from rapid growth and managing an extended global enterprise. Others are a result of internal inefficiencies and silos of information that affect your ability to further innovate and compete on dimensions such as cost, quality, and schedule. You need the ability to easily adapt to new manufacturing methods, changing customer requirements, and evolving business strategies.
Epicor Manufacturing Overview
Immediately Productive and
Simple to Use
The rise of consumer technologies, easy-to-use apps, and social networks has created a new imperative for business applications. Traditional ERP can be notoriously complex to implement, use, and maintain. Epicor ERP is different. We focus on continuously eliminating complexities and providing innovative solutions that encourage the use of ERP—like intuitive navigation, role-based home pages, to configurable dashboards—to empower every user to create their own “My ERP.” We embed capabilities that make it simple for users—even infrequent users—to intuitively access information in real time and to quickly accomplish tasks.To augment the inherent usability of Epicor ERP, we deliverembedded help, embedded training courses, Knowledge on Demand videos, and our comprehensive Epicor University curriculum. Our focus on reducing complexity enables Epicor ERP to deliver exceptional ease of adoption. For example, we incorporate tools and workbenches to simplify implementation and streamline upgrades. These allow you to stay current and take advantage of new capabilities as quickly as they become available.
Collaboration Ignite Innovations
The principles of ERP are founded on the benefits of working together. Embedded within Epicor ERP, Epicor Social Enterprise (ESE) supports the fundamental shift in the way organizations collaborate, both internally and externally. Depending on circumstances, examples might include collaborating around a project, a customer incident, a quality issue, a procurement challenge, or a planning event. ESE changes your relationship with ERP, enabling everyone to securely engage within your businesses and leverage ERP knowledge base to make more informed decisions and foster innovative ideas.
With increased global competition and customer demand for product flexibility alongside smaller, more frequent orders, businesses are widening the scope of lean principles to focus not only on manufacturing processes, but to encompass all processes that contribute to the bottom line. Epicor is uniquely positioned with fully integrated modules and features such as customer relationship management, supplier relationship management, work-order-less “Kanban” control on the shop floor, lean metrics, and Epicor service-oriented architecture (SOA) to reduce waste in internal processes and ultimately enhance profitability
As your business grows and changes, you need a solution that can grow and change with you. How you choose to deploy your business solutions is a choice that shouldn’t limit your options—either now or in the future.

As the only ERP solution that can be deployed in any manner from on premises, virtualized, hosted, or true cloud in a single version—Epicor is uniquely positioned to enable you to focus on the functional needs of your business without compromise.

Responsive ERP That's as
Mobile as You Are
The days of coming to the office, logging into an ERP system, then leaving it all behind at the end of the day are long gone. Work has moved beyond a PC in a cubicle or office to the customer site, on the plant floor or in the warehouse, in the field, or on a supplier visit. In today’s always-connected world, users demand access 24/7, with a consistent experience that flows between devices. Support for touch and gestures and the ability to fully interact with business systems—beyond simply drilling into analytics—is the new normal. End-user demands for greater control over the user experience are increasing. Individuals expect to be able to manipulate screens and dashboards in a manner that is relevant to a particular role, task, or point in time. Epicor recognizes the challenges these competing demands can have, and the implications for ERP to ensure enthusiastic adoption throughout the organization. We focus on ensuring that our business architecture and business solutions enable you to stay ahead of the curve, and your users are fully productive however they choose to interact with Epicor ERP.
