Epicor Next-Generation Cloud ERP Solution Gains Momentum

Delivery of Robust Functionality and Cost Effective Deployment Meets the Needs of Growing Manufacturers

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) -  EPICOR INSIGHTS 2013 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced its next-generation cloud enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is gaining traction with manufacturers. Available today in Australia, Canada, China, Mexico and the United States, the growing list of Epicor ERP cloud customers include companies like Plastiglide Manufacturing, Corp, Samscreen Inc. and Mayekawa Manufacturing Company.

Plastiglide Manufacturing, Corp. is a leading caster manufacturer located in Waterbury, Connecticut. "With our recent acquisition of Plastiglide, we needed to be up-and-running on core "quote to cash" Epicor ERP modules within 30 days," said Rahul Dandora, president, Austro Mold Inc. and Plastiglide Inc. "The Epicor team met expectations to deploy the cloud ERP solution quickly and now we have a cohesive platform to run business processes as efficiently as possible."

In fact, a recent report published by Nucleus Research states, "Without the need to acquire and configure hardware and software on-site, implementation time can be dramatically reduced. This enables manufacturers to achieve faster time-to-value and allows users to take advantage of the solution quickly, which is especially important in organizations that have rapidly changing production environments or quickly changing business requirements. Manufacturers often have tight timelines to open new facilities or support new requirements and cannot afford the disruption of an on-premise solution that could take months or years to customize, test, and deploy."1

Samscreen Inc. has built a reputation as the leading specialist in the manufacture of screening and crushing media for portable and stationary plants. "We needed a fully-integrated cloud ERP solution that allows us to better serve our customers and support the entire process, from initial concept and design, to manufacturing and thereafter," said AJ Rembert, project manager, Samscreen Inc. "The solution is great so far and fully meets our expectations."

Mayekawa is a thermal engineering company that has expanded its business by focusing on freezing and compression technologies ever since its establishment in 1924. "With our increased operations in the U.S. we wanted a single integrated platform to improve our business processes and provide flexibility for growth and expansion," said Jim Stoll, Controller Mayekawa U.S.A., Inc. The system needs to provide the most up-to-date information on orders, inventories, financial data and customer needs. We felt the Epicor web based product was a great match for our needs.

Growing Cloud Portfolio
Epicor next-generation ERP was developed on a multi-tenant service-oriented architecture (SOA), the foundation enables Epicor ERP to be deployed in multi-tenant SaaS, single-tenant (hosted), and on-premise -- making Epicor ERP a truly unique offering. Announced in fall of 2012 (see release), the next-generation cloud ERP solution expanded to midmarket manufacturers, distributors and service organizations. Customers can select the edition and deployment model that works best for them and as they evolve have the peace of mind that their ERP solution has the flexibility and functionality to accommodate their future requirements and growth.

"Leveraging our cloud computing success with Epicor Express, a comprehensive SaaS ERP system specifically designed for job shops and small manufacturers and distributors, we are now gaining momentum with larger organizations," said Chad Meyer, director, product marketing for Epicor. "With our full featured multi-tenant SaaS and on-premise version offered within a single platform, this is a true competitive differentiator for quick deployment to our customer base."
