The resulting system will improve reporting, make the process much more efficient, and provide an operations tool that will carry the company on for future generations to come.
Chardon, Ohio (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
Today, e2b enterprise, a division of e2b teknologies, announced that a new customer, a ceramic, tile, and brick manufacturer, has selected Epicor 9 ERP to replace the company’s current ERP system for improved reporting and increased operational efficiencies.
Prior to making the decision to implement Epicor 9, the company’s ERP system consisted of financials using Platinum For Windows (PFW), a solution for which support will be discontinued at the end of March 2014; a custom manufacturing, warehousing and shipping system written in an outdated version of Microsoft Access for which external support which was becoming increasingly difficult to obtain; and a CRM system internally developed in Lotus notes. Besides the serious support issues and deadlines quickly approaching, integration between the Access system and PFW had to be continually maintained and data, which was stored in multiple databases, required duplicate data entry and severely hindered management’s reporting capabilities.
The company chose Epicor 9 ERP because the system easily replaced and their financial system and could be elegantly tailored to replace the Access and CRM systems completely. Epicor is a comprehensive solution with an embedded CRM system, a critical decision factor for the company and an element competing solutions were unable to provide. Additionally, Epicor’s unique dashboards will give management the real time reporting and cost analysis critical to fast and strategic decision making.
“The combination of the rich functionality inherent in Epicor and access to tools such as Epicor Service Connect and Business Process Manager, coupled with our team’s deep understanding of the industry and the company’s requirements, allowed us to craft a solution that mirrored the company’s current workflow and data gathering forms,” said Ken Hilty, Vice President of Sales at e2b teknologies. “The resulting system will improve reporting, make the process much more efficient, and provide an operations tool that will carry the company on for future generations to come.”
