How Does Epicor Transform Businesses?
Too many manufacturers and distributors are missing out on lucrative business opportunities and putting their company at risk by relying on outdated technology to manage their operations. Organizations can’t afford to let information gaps and production roadblocks slow them down. That’s why they need enterprise resource planning (ERP) software to create a central data hub and elevate performance. ERP systems enhance visibility and productivity across your entire business, helping you build strategies to reduce waste and serve customers.
But you can’t trust any provider. Not all ERP vendors can boast a high success rate for an array of industries or offer flexible solutions to drive business growth. With over 45 years of developing enterprise solutions and 1,000 global consultants, Epicor is the premier ERP vendor for businesses all over the world. We’ve compiled five Epicor success stories to demonstrate how the ERP system transforms operations.
Cosma International, a Tier-1 automotive supplier to OEM customers, found they were wasting inordinate amounts of time on inventory management with their legacy software.

They’ve also maintained at or near 100 percent delivery rates with primary customers by using Epicor’s EDI package. Their users enjoy instant access to critical metrics such as downtime and cycle time. These improvements have enabled Cosma to execute lean manufacturing and Six Sigma principles.
