Customers have reported improved visibility between departments and increased collaboration within their organizations through this centralized database. The software's wide range of applications includes sales, accounting, production scheduling, supply chain management, and human capital management. By replacing multiple databases and streamlining processes, Epicor ERP has successfully reduced overhead costs while increasing productivity. Users have also highlighted its real-time data integration and user-friendly features, which enable efficient decision-making across different facets of the business. Additionally, it has been implemented in multi-site setups to combine manufacturing sites and sales offices across different locations. Overall, Epicor ERP addresses issues related to multiple databases and inefficient data management, providing a comprehensive solution that supports growth and enhances operations in various industries.

Highly Customizable: Users have praised Epicor ERP for its high level of customization, with many stating that it allows them to tailor the software to meet their specific business needs. This flexibility eliminates the need for extensive customization or reliance on Epicor for software changes.

Valuable Data Export Feature: The ability to export data to an Excel spreadsheet is seen as a valuable feature by users, allowing them to easily manipulate and analyze the data in Excel. This feature is highly beneficial for in-depth analysis and reporting purposes.

Useful Dashboards: Users find the dashboards in Epicor ERP to be highly useful and easily updatable. This streamlined interface enhances productivity and efficiency by providing quick access to important information and facilitating real-time decision-making.

Support Team: Unhelpful and Slow to Respond Many users have expressed dissatisfaction with the support team, stating that they have encountered issues with unhelpful support, slow response times, and a lack of understanding of the manufacturing process and the system. Some users have found it frustrating to receive canned responses from support and have struggled with upgrading due to lack of assistance. User Interface: Confusing and Inconsistent The user interface has been a source of frustration for many users, as they find it confusing and inconsistent. Users have mentioned difficulties in performing tasks due to the unclear layout and design. Some reviewers have also noted that certain functions within the software have different names but perform the same tasks, causing confusion. Navigation: Too Many Tabs and Non-Straightforward Links Several users have reported difficulties with navigation within the software. They feel overwhelmed by too many tabs and non-straightforward links, making it challenging to find specific features or information. This issue has led to frustration among users who desire a more streamlined navigation experience.

Users frequently recommend the following approaches when using the software:

  • Request structured and pointed demonstrations and speak to references who have used the most current version of the software. This helps in assessing the software's capabilities and suitability for specific needs.

  • Consider the flexibility of choosing between dedicated/single tenancy and multi-tenancy. Having the option to select the most suitable deployment model has proven valuable for different organizations with varying requirements.

  • Prioritize data standards and people readiness before starting discovery sessions. Taking this step ensures that data is standardized and users are adequately prepared, leading to a smoother implementation process and successful outcomes.

  • Maximize adoption from a wide user base to fully leverage the application's potential in achieving success.

These recommendations are based on feedback from users, which highlight these approaches as valuable when working with the software.

  • Epicor has allowed us to easily develop new products and release them to our customer quickly.
  • Because the data in Epicor is open to 3rd party apps It's allowed us to improve process even farther.
  • My favorite tool is DMT. It has saved us some much time because we can modify data so quickly and efficiently. Also when we acquired new companies it allowed is to import the data in hours.
  • Because of the flexibility of the grid format on forms IT doesn't have to create one off reports. Also, Users can to small batch imports releaving IT workload.

  • Information efficiency is vastly improved - especially in purchasing. We went from excel tracking to job linked PO's. Now we have a dashboard the shows all parts availability that the entire organization can see
  • helping to drive process discipline - forces better behaviours and reduces the use of workarounds
  • Sales pipeline visibility and management is vastly improved over previous access process. The ability to customize query outputs to optimize the users need for information is invaluable.

  • Epicor ERP has paid for itself over the past 5 years of usage, but did not generate the 2 year ROI anticipated, as the costs of training and customization were higher than anticipated.
  • Epicor has helped us to visualize our scheduling constraints sooner, but has not eliminated the need for additional scheduling considerations beyond machine availability (e..g ability to tie multiple resource constraints to the same job and see the impact).
  • Epicor's custom dashboards have helped coordinate and communicate better between sales, program management, manufacturing and shipping, resulting in fewer missed deliveries, more timely client notifications, and less confusion on the shop floor.

  • Getting better information from custom reports
  • Getting better information from modules because they require employees to enter more information and have more fields for them to enter information
  • Making some repeat processes quicker, so users can get done with tasks quicker

  • The ROI can be hard to quantify. We spend more time setting up and entering information up front, but we spend less time than before trying to track project costs so that evens out. Purchasing the system and implementing it was very expensive, but the benefit is the the better information can save money on projects as we know where best to spend our time and identify potential problems earlier on a project. We believe it will have a positive impact, but I'd say it will take a few years (3-4) to be worth it.

  • ROI not quantifiable for the system but clearly the complexity of the jobs and accurate job costing would not be possible without an integrated manufacturing system and Epicor ERP is the most capable of being customizable for the unique environment.
  • Every employee is a "buyer" and has the ability to purchase whatever is needed for the project they are working on or their job function. In an extremely flat organizational structure (three levels for 700+ self-managed employees) anything that avoids barriers to productivity is a huge plus.
  • Massive customizations in previous versions has made upgrading to ERP 10 a lengthy process but built-in customization tools will make this easier going beyond ERP 10.
  • The system was implemented prior to the Projects module so everything is crammed into a job structure. Switching to Projects (made of jobs) will be a huge organizational streamlining.
