    Pros
    I recommend Epicor ERP thanks to all the functions that allow employees to work more efficiently and quickly. Although Epicor needs to improve the support team a lot, I'm sure to recommend it.
    Very powerful and thorough functionalities for all manufacturing operations. Extremely good costing capabilities (all financial features are quite good, actually).
    It is user friendly , and has good basic functionality. Structure of menu modules make sense and makes it easy to move in and out of different screens.
    Cons
    Worse, they do not have many consultants who really know the product so you waste thousands of dollars getting them up to speed, only to end up with the problem not fixed.
    For the cost of this software...I was quite disappointed when I realized shortcomings and it's inability to do what I expected.
    Does not work as it should. Info is difficult to gut out.

    Exceptional ERP Software for Manufacturers

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Over the course of nearly twenty years as an Epicor admin in manufacturing, my experience has been fantastic. The software is simply to use, extremely flexible, and the ways that the data can be extracted (reports, BAQ's, and Dashboards) make it a VERY powerful analysis tool when the time to enter data is done properly. The support team is also fantastic...and while maintenance and support is expensive, it's worth it and you get what you pay for.

    Pros

    Epicor is extremely flexible right out of the box, and is exceptionally strong in the areas of managing and tracking Production Jobs, Bill of Materials, Scheduling, Labor, Inventory, Purchasing, and Order Entry. It also has the ability to have customized development, and things like the Epicor BAQ's, Dashboards, and Business Activity Manager features allow customizes information, exportable grids, and notifications to be setup by administrators and even end users as these modules are user-friendly and fairly intuitive! The Shop Floor Data Entry Module (MES) is also very intuitive and simple to use for the users on the production / manufacturing floor.

    Cons

    Epicor ERP is expensive software, and since it's such a wide product that handles so many aspects of your business, setup really must be done according to Epicor's recommendations and completed thoroughly. Also, since it's so flexible, there is a lot of it that you won't use, so it's best to create clear work instructions for your team and/or hide fields and/or functions that you will not need to use.

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    We’ve been pleasantly surprised at how it is turning out to meet our business needs, while knowing the amount of work necessary to get it set how we need.

    Pros

    Easily mass upload and update data. Configurable modules to meet your business needs. Responsive, knowledgeable and helpful consultants.

    Cons

    Some restrictions which are costly to customize and work around. Forms are not easily edited. Many modules are an extra added cost to subscribe every year.

    Si lo buscas para manufactura en México no lo compres

    Reviewed a month ago

    Pésima, por muy bueno que sea el software, si no hay una red de implementadores que lo dominen y no hay el respaldo del mismo desarrollador, se vuelve un gasto y un problema, más en el caso de Epicor que no es ni amigable ni intuitiva su interfaz.

    Pros

    Tiene muy buenas características, su MRP suena bien, el costo comparado con los grandes también es razonable más si esperas crecimiento.

    Cons

    Es tu problema hacer que funcione. En nuestro caso que tenemos varios procesos productivos, el implementador que nos recomendaron, que se supone que sabría, no supo y cuando buscamos el respaldo de Epicor México no se logró nada, nos dejaron con el problema y la inversión botada. Nosotros tuvimos que seguir buscando opciones y por nuestro lado buscar resolver. Parece mentira que un software americano y con una empresa de ese tamaño se desentienda. Yo no se para otras industrias pero al menos para manufactura y con la estructura que tienen en México definitivamente es un error adquirirlo.

    Epicor Manufacturing, some parts are better than others

    Reviewed 4 years ago

    Epicor is a mid-market software for companies that are under 100 employees (roughly) and more than 50 who need an ERP. Version 10 is by far the cleanest version. Given the choices at this size of a company's growth, it is a viable choice. Just be careful that the VAR doesn't walk you down a road to heavy customizations that get in the way of future upgrades and cost you yearly in re-working them when you upgrade or patch the ERP. Stick to custom reports, custom user screens, and use the Business Objects provided to interface with and all should be well.

    Pros

    Ease of use, E10 is cloud based, support (when in US) is good, Short learning curve, fairly flexible, highly customizable

    Cons

    Highly customizable tends to get pushed to overly customized which = a mini-new ERP project with every upgrade to fix broken customizations, VAR network: some are great, some not, support for down-rev version falls off quickly, plan on extended cost of ownership, import/export functionality is limited unless add-on products are purchased, Field Service module is the weakest link in the product.

    Workflow made easy

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    We used this to manage the company. We track time on projects. Keep inventory, and is used heavily in supply chain.

    Pros

    This software handles all of your company needs. It does time management, inventory, project management, and more. This was very easy to roll out to end users.

    Cons

    So far we have only used this for less then 6 mo. I don't have any down side at this point. There is still a learning curve that we need to over come.
