How to Instantly Improve Epicor ERP Business Results
As the CEO or CFO, your manufacturing company is counting on you to make decisions and drive efficiencies that produce a profit to keep the business alive and flourishing. As a result, it’s your job to make sure your business is operating at a competitive pace. One way modern manufacturers are doing this is by implementing an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system.
Is your ERP software helping you to improve quoting results, productivity, and profitability? If not, one reason you may be losing in those areas is because your ERP software isn’t regularly updated. In order to make sure your operations are successfully driving a business result, we recommend making sure your Epicor ERP Version 10 is aligned to the latest update on a monthly scheduled basis.
The Problem with Failing to Update Epicor ERP
Our Epicor consultants have seen firsthand how Epicor software can drive key business results for manufacturers by automating process, distribution, sales, and coordinating all services within one user-friendly system that can be accessed anywhere, anytime, by anyone. However, results are deterred when there’s a failure to install new technology upgrades. Useful features get ignored, or users expect the system to function in a way that it wasn’t designed to function. A lack of regular updates to your ERP system will eventually erode the system’s ability to bring you the best business results.
Choose Your Best Way to Manage Updates
To avoid this problem, consider the three options you have when installing your ERP software to make sure you choose the one that best fits your needs and preferences.
- Do Updates Yourself: Purchase Epicor software and maintain the technology on your own premises. This option tends to be the main culprit for delaying updates for years because companies don’t usually have the expertise or bandwidth to install and maintain updates as they are made available. This grows into a bigger problem because upgrades become more difficult and costly to implement the longer you wait.
- Have a Certified Epicor Partner Do Updates: Purchase Epicor software and, whether you keep it on your premises or place it on a hosted server at a data center, let the Partner manage all updates. This way your Partner can manage the updates and upgrades to save you time, money, and headaches.
- Forget About Updates: Purchase Epicor in the cloud. This option eliminates the problem and guesswork with staying up to date. As updates are released, they are automatically rolled out into your platform and you will always be on the latest version.
