Adds capabilities focused on cost reduction, process enhancements and customer responsiveness
Epicor Software has unveiled a new version of enterprise resource planning (ERP) suite Epicor 9.05, adding capabilities focused on cost reduction, process enhancements and customer responsiveness.
The company claims that the new release delivers functional enhancements and new modules across every suite within the offering, including Epicor ICE business architecture. It includes extended capabilities for companies in manufacturing, distribution, financial services, construction and engineering and project-based organisations.
Building on its already financial management and enterprise performance management (EPM) capabilities, Epicor has expanded functionality for measuring key performance indicators across all operational aspects, helping organisations gain visibility of costs and financial goals.
According to Epicor, True SOA (service-oriented architecture) which incorporates Epicor Everywhere Framework provides a foundation that enables companies to derive benefits from ERP at a business level.
The new release offers Epicor Mobile Access, which allows business users to define and deploy mobile applications for conducting business on devices such as BlackBerry, Windows Phone and the Apple iPhone, Epicor said.
In addition, Epicor Enterprise Search has been expanded to allow it to be invoked from almost anywhere, such as within Microsoft Outlook, PowerPoint or Excel and from a browser or within the application, delivering essential real-time information.
James Norwood, senior vice president of worldwide product marketing at Epicor, said: Our new release is designed to enable customers to target these often competing mandates allowing them to focus on areas of opportunity, helping them to quickly realise tangible and sustainable results in their business on the road to recovery. Quite simply, we believe it is the right release for the right time in the market.
