  • Microsoft Dynamics
Other than Microsoft Dynamics it's more complete and user-friendly. Also, the ROI was better than Microsoft Dynamics. When all departments reviewed the offerings is Epicor was a better fit than the other 4. The interface was easier to use meaning we got up to speed faster. The only weakness was Microsoft Dynamics seemed to have better reporting and BI capabilities.

We evaluated a couple of different products. Overall I think that Epicor has similar features to the other ERP offerings out there at this level. The thing that I like the best about Epicor is the tools used to modify the software. Just about every aspect of the software is modifiable. The downside of this is that supporting the software requires either knowledgeable programmers or a consultant on call.

Epicor ERP lacks some of the main functions that a software like Salesforce offers. The main difference is the ERP versus the cloud of marketing and sales benefits you get with Salesforce. Epicor is great for an ERP, but lacks in marketing and sales.

As of the time we last used Profit key, Epicor was a massive upgrade and a lot more versatile. The difference Epicor has made in the business would not have been achievable with the old ProfitKey software we were using. I honestly don't know that there is a fair comparison as Epicor and ProfitKey are just on 2 different levels.

Everyone at our organization really appreciated "made 2 manage" because of all of the quick access and some of the capabilities in accounting. So far, Epicor is much more advanced but the two can stand side by side. These two programs cannot really be compared just because it's just not fair to compare an on-site server ERP system to a cloud-based one.

Was down to Epicor and Infor SyteLine for our final two and had our core team privately write which they wanted and why. Summing it up best was one of the responses: If you want what is familiar and like your legacy system, go with SyteLine, but if you want all the bells and whistles go with Epicor. Our Configurator specialist hands down picked Epicor as did our IT department.

Epicor ERP has similar functionality to Made2Manage, but is much more flexible and has significantly more additional modules and support available. Versus PeopleSoft, it becomes an unfair comparison, as Epicor is mid-market and PeopleSoft is large-market. Having said that, Epicor is easier to both implement and use, but has far less flexibility.
IQMS is the biggest competitor if in the manufacturing space, particularly injection molding, as IQMS is fast becoming a de-facto "standard".

Baxter had been on an inhouse designed and programmed ERP system, then we were purchased and moved onto a mainframe with a customized ERP system. The decision to move off the mainframe was made and we started looking at a replacement system. I put together a list of 10 EPR systems, looked into reviews on them, and what features they had. We looked at our processes and made a list of things that a new ERP system must have. We then cut the list down to 5 and then asked the supplies for demos, we ended up looking at 3 systems, and Epicor was the system we went with. We compared it to the ERP system from Microsoft, in the end. The product configurator that Epicor had as part of their ERP system was far better than any other we had seen. Most of the ERP systems didn't have one or would have to customize one for us. Just to list a few ERP systems we looked at, Dynamics, MaS 90, Production 2000, Infor, and Macola.

With my former employer, we used ISAH-7, including couplings to Autocad (with BOM-integration) and Account View for financial reporting. At this company, I was also doing on-site support and report updates and year-closing, which would normally cost me just 4-5 working days. With another trading company, I was involved in the merger from King to AccountView and with a third, I was supporting developments of web-based forms in Exact.

All these companies were only somewhat smaller than the present employer, but the software seemed to be working much better to company needs than with present setup.

Vista 4 was a very basic system that did not require people to put in very much detail. This was ok in the earlier years of the company because our regulations weren't as strict and we weren't as concerned about the traceability of items. With our growing company we had to be better about being able to trace items, which means we had to add more information into each module. Epicor was able to provide us with what we needed.

We looked at a ton of other systems, but we picked Epicor because it had the most functionality that we wanted out of the box, and with the ability to customize everything. Some other packages had even better customization but less out of the box functionality. Epicor had a good mix of the two.

Epicor has been in use here for 15+ years so the "history" of evaluating other systems has been lost to the mists of time. In the view of this evaluator Epicor ERP is at the least the equal, if not superior, of any enterprise level Tier 1 ERP system and is built on the most technically advanced architecture available. Scalable from "Mom & Pop Job Shops" to multi-national corporations.

While these systems are not probably equivalent to Epicor, I found that all of them seemed to fail in the same area, many business processes were not supported in the software and users had to resort to manual processes or unintegrated databases. I think Epicor does a very good job of capturing and integrating the business process from Quote to Cash.
