As I have only used it in one business I can't say too much how relevant it would be for other types of business, eg Retail or Manufacturing. It doesn't appear to be specifically set up for ecommerce.

We wholesale products and it works well for that kind of business model.

Pros

  • Generic Inquiries are a very easy way to create custom reports.
  • The automation schedules are useful, we use these for confirming of shipments, creating invoices and emailing them. Reduces workload.
  • Open for integration with other software. We find the ease of connection to MS PowerBI very useful.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • Epicor iScala is simple-to-use and robust Microsoft technology based ERP for very wide range of businesses.
  • One of the stronger parts of the solution is using an industry-standard database that is simultaneously secure and open for queries from any BI tool.
  • Interface is simple and modern, easy-to-customize while keeping a stable kernel.

Cons

  • The CRM module is very basic.
  • There is no supplier remittance function.
  • The API is basic, our ecommerce integration has had to be built nearly from scratch.
Justin Leflaive profile photo
  • I have used and implemented iScala for 25 years, it has come a long way in terms of the current modern interface, but there is a room for both design and usability improvements.
  • Most of report forms are quite obsolete and usually are replaced by custom version during implelentation.
  • Color themes are great, but now we're waiting for theme editor :)

It is very customisable and good value for money. It is also scalable for the future. The CRM and ecommerce integtration are the main downsides.

Alternatives Considered

NetSuite is much more expensive and is difficult to customise or integrate.
SAP is a more complex and powerful system, but several times more expensive to implement and run.

I have experience with multiple ERP software and I must say that iScala is the fastest system to work in so far. It doesn't have the same fancy shell like some others but at the end of the day the most important thing is the functionality and here is iScala outstanding.

Return on Investment

  • Time to match customer payments has decreased by approximately 30%.
  • Time to enter sales orders has decreased by approx 10%.
  • It has enabled up to easily access our system remotely, meaning we are able to be more flexible in our work.

  • Epicor iScala makes sure everybody knows what to do and when.
  • iScala has greatly helped us to forecast future needs at the warehouse.
