    Very customisable ERP

    Reviewed on 3/1/2019

    Pros

    This ERP is very customisable. You can change the behavior of the software with it's DATA DIRECTIVE, METHODE DIRECTIVE. You can change the look and feel of every screen with it's internal .NET engine.

    Cons

    It is slow... You will need a very fast server.
    The query engine (BAQ) is very limited with Epicor 9 but I heard it's better with Epicor 10.
    If you made a lot of customisation, the upgrades will be difficult.

    Full-featured mid-tier ERP based on Microsoft Stack (or cloud option)

    Very simple to implement. Training people was the hardest part. We upgraded from a 20 year old ERP which was not WYSIWYG but users liked new formats. As usual customers wanted every option but after implementation realized that they could live without it since there were similar features in the existing software.

    We have a factory with about 40 office workers, 400 on factory floor, two distribution centers and main office. Factory in Mexico, others in US.

    Project management support from Epicor was great. Not impressed with support. Often had to wait long time for solutions and it required a lot of data on our part to answer their questions.

    The MS Stack was easy to configure, secure and administrate.

    We purchased our own servers and hosted them in a shared DC. Performance was good once we figured out how to configure everything including firewalls, WAN and various remote servers.

    No problems migrating data to new environment but we kept the legacy system for queries.

    We added a 3rd-party EDI solution and it worked well to reduce Order processing issues.

    The Epicor software was rarely the problem. Mostly project and training issues that delayed the effort.

    Pros

    The MS stack makes it easy to customize for reporting, data storage. Multi-tier configuration with database, application server and options for web-clients, fat clients and terminal servers.
    Many options for customization in addition to code development. Multi-everything.

    Relatively easy to upgrade and stay on current releases. Great administrative tools and ability to add resources as demand grow, including localizing servers for better performance.

    Cons

    Nothing really. There are lots of modules and each has a lot of simple to understand configuration options.

    Response from Epicor Software

    We have achieve the goals we originally set out to achieve:
    - improve quoting function efficiency
    - centralise functions to one system

    Pros

    Full of features. Good ability to customise screens and part configurator to aid our productivity improvement. Version 10 seems to have even more features.

    Cons

    We are currently still on V8.03. Scheduling module is the weakest of all module. Since Epicor took over from Cogita sales service is close to none existence, level of support is poor but maintenance cost is high.

    Vast improvements in improving business speed and communication between different business units. User interface easily allows jumping to other areas quickly to enable improved speed in business decisions and customer service.

    Pros

    Very flexible and powerful user interface. Software modules have extensive flexible options to tailor the configuration to work as desired. Most modules very integrated, allowing powerful user capability. User personalization is powerful and easy to administer.

    Cons

    Customization is often too complex. Need C# programmer and still can be complicated. In V9 to V10 customization languages changed which required rewrite of previous customizations. This is very costly rather than tools being available to effectively migrate existing customizations. Upgrades of software modules is too complex and is being worked on to improve and focus more on ease, allowing companies to keep on the current release without seeming like a new implementation. More work than it should be. Several modules are included for improving requirements and are very weak. Example: Integration to Salesforce.

    Overall, the software works as intended. If an issue comes up, it’s generally an easy fix even if it does take a bit of time. Much of what we do as a company can sometime require us to have to dig around in the system to find the information we need but the good thing is that Epicor allows for that digging thru it’s search fields.

    Pros

    The very thing that kind of sucks about this software is also the thing that makes it “work” for our company. The ability to customize the software for our day to day business needs is awesome.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, those customizations make fixing things a little more difficult than if we were able to use the software “out of the box.” Having developers in a different country also prohibits and lengthens “fix time” due to time difference.
