e2b teknologies, a Sales Certified partner and reseller of Epicor ERP, today announced a new customer. A third-party logistics company recently selected e2b teknologies and Epicor ERP to replace their existing ERP application, pull together seperate systems, and eliminate the use of spreadsheets for improved overall operational efficiencies. The company provides outsourced shipping, packaging and distribution services for customers across the United States, Canada, and Mexico.
Prior to implementing Epicor ERP, the company used Sage 100 ERP (formerly MAS 90) to manage their financial, invoicing, and purchasing activities and utilized custom developed supply chain software for their operations. Like many others with similar software setups, the company was forced to develop a large number of spreadsheets to augment their reporting and management; a practice that, paired with their disconnected ERP and supply chain systems, led to inefficiencies and a severe lack of insight and control in overall operations. To rectify this, they needed a new system that would incorporate reporting, management, financials, purchasing, and supply chain operations into one powerful and comprehensive solution.
Management was looking for a more robust accounting package that would be easy to use and meet a number of very specific requirements including off premise hosting of the application, alerts, a strong budget development system, support of IFRS reporting, improved reporting using dashboards and mobile devices, and a highly customized purchase approval system with RFQ tracking.
Epicor ERP was selected over four other industry leading ERP applications based on its ability to satisfy all of the company’s demanding requirements, especially the four components which were particularly important to the company. These four essential components included the Active Planner budget development system which supports development of budget templates for departmental completion, submission, approval and roll up; the product’s overall ease of use and strong reporting capabilities; the powerful Advanced Requisition Management add-on system from Precise Software which provides a highly adaptable approval workflow and also monitors expenditures against budget; and Epicor’s Managed Services offering which provides off-site hosting and support.
“The company set out to find a comprehensive solution, but their demanding requirements made it essential that they find both an ERP system and a vendor who could support them,” said Ken Hilty, Senior VP of ERP Sales at e2b teknologies. “They chose Epicor over other applications because they were impressed with the breadth and depth of functionality, Epicor’s service offerings, and the e2b team’s ability to understand and cater to their specific needs. With Epicor ERP, they now have a 360-degree view of its operations to make fast, strategic decisions and maximize overall productivity.”
