Epicor Software Corp. recently launched the latest release of its ERP system. The latest release received a major upgrade where the cloud-based ERP platform boasts of a new mobile framework. The release touts a responsive design and a modern user experience on virtually any mobile device for access to information anytime and anywhere with internet access. Epicor also announced that it is going to create a global ERP system by bringing its cloud-first strategy to the Asian market to cloud-enable a region dominated by manufacturing and distribution companies.
Nearly half of the company’s new clients are evaluating the cloud as their primary deployment model. In addition to its on-premises version of Epicor ERP, the vendor offers a variety of cloud-based ERP software, giving its clients a wide range of choices when it comes to a cloud ERP implementation. Businesses can implement Epicor’s cloud-based ERP as multi-tenant, single tenant, cloud or hybrid – mix of cloud and on premises. Regardless of the type of ERP implementation a client chooses, the code base of the product is always the same. This enables a straightforward migration to another type of Epicor ERP architecture in the future, if the client desires, and it also assures system consistency no matter how an enterprise chooses to implement it.
All aspects of everyday company operations are covered in the cloud-based ERP. System modules include core financial functions, such as the general ledger, accounts payable and receivable, asset tracking and financial analysis, to name a few. There are also HR functions, such as staffing, benefits and recruiting; a customer relationship management module; manufacturing operations; supply chain management, production planning and scheduling; sales management; service management; product management; supply chain management; and e-commerce.
Epicor also offers industry-specific ERP systems designed to meet the needs of manufacturing, distribution and service industries.
