Overall Satisfaction with Epicor ERP

It is used as a standard corporate ERP to replace various site ERP/MES systems as a result of acquisitions. One corporate instance will help enable multiple key business strategies including vertical integrating finance, operations, logistics.
  • Inside out architecture provides consistent and required function integration (ie. no bolt on's) while providing integration with most popular software where required.
  • Fairly robust and flexible material (MRP) and job scheduling functionality. Provides flexibility to use many key scheduling criteria to fine tune capabilities to match business/site requirements.
  • Flexibility to enforce same or modified business rules, security model, reporting, etc for each business/location.
  • Job costing and analysis is flexible and easy to set up and maintain.
  • Standard implementation methodology needs to be modified to better address use of company data for robust testing and improved data migration.
  • Consulting bench (a number of highly experienced and available consultants) not large enough. Some third-party implementation partners need better and more up to date training.
  • Data collection very tailored to discrete manufacturing; need more flexibility to meet specific requirements/processes for business with other manufacturing and/or services models.
  • It's too soon to calculate.
  • Data dashboards and customized reporting are straight forward and work well with some basic training.
  • Workflow tool works well (but only as designed).
  • We did not choose to use machine monitoring/diagnostics.
It's important to have the option. Cloud offering must be flexible and configurable to match most common on-prem configuration and customized functionality. Need ability to easily migrate from on-prem to cloud as business needs change over time.
SAP, Oracle, MS Dynamics, Siteline, E2, Traverse.
Well suited for: MFG to order, MFG to stock.
Less suited for: Engineered to order, straight services model (no inventory & different costing)
