Improve Scheduling, Production, and Quality Using Cloud ERP

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Sep 25, 2014
The software as a service (SaaS) model of application delivery, more commonly known as ‘cloud deployment’, in which software features are accessed through a Web browser, is an excellent way for manufacturing companies to get the bene?ts of enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems without the need to build additional IT infrastructure. ERP functionality delivered “from the cloud” avoids the complexity and costs that often accompany on premisess ERP implementations, and typically provides a much more favorable total cost of ownership, compared to legacy on premisess deployment. Companies subscribe to the software features that they need and can add new ones as business requirements change, without buying additional servers or storage to support new functionality. The ERP features are the same as for an on premises ERP system, except that it is hosted and maintained on the Cloud provider’s infrastructure.

It Takes More Than Good Instincts to Grow Your Business

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Apr 05, 2017
Today’s financial professionals have access to robust tools that offer a detailed picture of a company’s success in real time. With dashboards reporting in-depth data, a CFO can merely glance at a computer to analyze how well the business is doing in key areas. Despite the impressive technology available today, many businesses have yet to make a change. In a survey of 1,500 finance professionals, nearly half reported relying on gut instinct rather than hard data to make important business decisions. The survey—commissioned by Epicor and conducted by Redshift Research Ltd.—also revealed that a majority of CFOs and financial decision-makers are still relying on spreadsheets to interpret business data. In our “Instinct Meets Insight” eBook, you can explore the survey results and learn how a modern financial IT infrastructure lets decision-makers back up instinct with relevant data they can use to help their businesses grow.

Target Growth With Better Business Intelligence

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Jul 06, 2017
It’s hard to make good decisions without good information. Having access to data, and the tools to quickly analyze that data, is essential. Without data, you are blind to how your business is performing and areas for improvement—all you have to go on is instinct. A robust business intelligence (BI) system can provide new insights to help steer your distribution organization clear of obstacles that impede growth—and toward the opportunities that enable it. A monthly report just doesn’t cut it anymore. You need real-time information, and if you’re running legacy software, it’s probably slowing you down.

Turn Your Shop Floor Into a Strategic Business Driver

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Aug 01, 2017
Like many manufacturers, your shop floor operations may be challenged with inefficient standard processes, unpredictable downtime, and difficulties with machinery maintenance. A manufacturing execution system (MES) can help make the most of your shop floor’s capabilities, with tools that can identify under-performing and high-performance machines, and then optimize asset utilization accordingly. Engineers can design, refine, and implement better work processes, and operations professionals can improve preventive maintenance and response times. The result is less downtime, less scrap, more productivity, and lower cost. With the real-time information of an MES, you can transform the shop floor into an important contributor that drives the strategic direction of your business, differentiates your brand, and positions your company as a market leader.

Manufacturer Saves $700K in Scrap With Help From Epicor Mattec MES Software

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Aug 01, 2017
Illinois-based manufacturer Plano Molding sought to replace a paper-and-pencil data collection process with an automated manufacturing execution system (MES). They wanted a real-time look at production data. Many of their decisions were made based on observations and guesses rather than facts, and they needed deeper insights. To improve shop floor efficiency and anticipate and solve production issues before they occurred, Plano Molding implemented the Epicor Mattec MES system. The insights they gained into the shop floor are helping to drive bottom-line growth. Plano Molding has also seen significant scrap savings.
