Epicor ERP Deployments Accelerate Worldwide; Enhanced Product, Expanded Global Services Organization, and Refined Industry Best Practices Speed Implementations

Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced a major implementation milestone with the next-generation Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution exceeding 1,000 customers live around the globe.

One year ago at its annual customer conference, the company announced the latest version of Epicor ERP – better, faster, and more powerful — underscoring commitment to continuous improvement (see news release.) Epicor delivered more than 300 new features and enhancements to improve ease of use, boost overall performance and streamline deployments in the current release. At the same time, Epicor expanded its global consulting services team — more than 800 strong with deep industry experience — established a Project Management Office (PMO), and introduced Business Consulting Services to support customers with process improvement and change management.

Commitment to Continuous Improvement Delivers
As Epicor ERP, built on the agile Epicor ICE Business Architecture, also reaches more than 113,350 users today, recent organizations to implement the next-generation solution such as NinePoint Medical, Inc., Kooima Company and RSA Engineered Products are reaping the benefits of flexibility, usability and scalability.

Rock Valley, Iowa-based Kooima Company manufacturers quality replacement forage harvester parts and combine parts, as well as replacement mixer knives and header adapters. Also operating a metal fabrication division, the company delivers laser cutting, CNC machining and press brake work, robotic welding, assembly and more. “Epicor’s ability to support our retail parts sales division as well as our metal fabrication division with a single integrated platform was a key differentiator among other competitors,” said Greg Bakker, Applications Developer, Kooima Company. “Epicor ERP has allowed us the ability to gather the most up-to-date information on inventory, orders, jobs and other vital tools to deliver beyond our customers’ expectations.”

Recently taking its organization live on Epicor ERP, RSA Engineered Products is a customer focused, market driven engineering and manufacturing company that provides superior quality products on time at a competitive price for the Aerospace and Defense industries. “We needed a fully-integrated ERP solution to support the entire process, from initial concept and design, to manufacturing and thereafter, ” said Michael LeClair, president, RSA Engineered Products. With a centralized foundation, this provides real-time traceability to orders and simplifies job updates across the team.”

Epicor ERP Momentum Continues
Since it was first introduced, Epicor ERP has to date selected by more than 3,700 customers in over 70 countries worldwide spanning the manufacturing,distribution, financials, services, and retail sectors around the globe.

“With the increased demands businesses face today, Epicor ERP continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of our customers and the range of industries they serve,” said Malcolm Fox, vice president, product marketing for Epicor. “We believe our continued focus on developing innovative solutions, leveraging the Epicor ICE business architecture, will empower our customers to take their businesses to new levels of performance and mobility. Epicor ERP gives customers choice and freedom — deployed in the cloud, on-premise, as a managed service, and on any device – delivering ERP whenever and wherever business takes you.”
