Epicor ERP helps businesses leverage data streams for growth
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today it's bringing its award-winning technology solutions for manufacturers to Fabtech.
As the shop floor becomes increasingly more digitized, several new connections and data streams are being created. As a result, organizations must turn the explosion of data they have into intelligence and insights to support real-time decision making, at every level and across every function in the organization, and the extended supply chain. But over time, the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system—originally intended to automate and integrate business activities for improved productivity—starts becoming a real drag, literally, dragging down operational performance.
"To maximize the benefits of data mining from ERP, its important to also simplify it," said Terri Hiskey, vice president, manufacturing product marketing, Epicor Software. "By simplifying ERP, organizations can attain greater responsiveness. With greater responsiveness, organizations can adapt more quickly to new requirements, disruptive forces, opportunities, and threats."
Optimizing data analysis with a solution built for manufacturers
Guided by the needs of todays users, Epicor ERP is a global business software solution that delivers the choice, flexibility and agility to drive growth and opportunity throughout your business without the complexity of legacy platforms. A single, end-to-end software solution for business, Epicor ERP is available in the cloud or on-premises. It offers a modular approach with robust capabilities focused on reducing costs, streamlining processes, and improving customer responsiveness across the enterprise—all top priorities toward achieving continued growth and profitability.
To provide even further capabilities to todays manufacturers, Epicor also offers a manufacturing execution system, Mattec MES. Mattec MES collects data directly from equipment and operators on the shop floor in real-time, minimizing inaccurate and time-consuming manual data collection. With information in your hands "right now" you can become proactive, and anticipate and solve production problems before they happen. Real-time insights help you pinpoint critical issues, reduce waste, and improve quality and customer service.
"Our industry has changed considerably since we started, notably ever-shrinking product life cycles," explained Ken Kane, executive vice president, Lighting Services, Inc. "This means we have to move product development at a much quicker pace than ever before, including the ability to make on-the-fly changes to production, and Epicor ERP makes it much easier for us to do this by embracing our needs to enable connectivity throughout our factory floor."
