Epicor’s Prophet 21 ERP system was the focus of the company’s demonstration during our recent webinar series on ERP systems for the Distribution industry. Epicor currently has 100 customers running cloud deployments of Prophet 21, Epicor’s flagship product for distributors who may have kitting operations, light assembly, or configurable product offerings.
Prophet 21 ERP Functionality
The cloud ERP offering of Prophet 21 offers the same deep functionality as the on-premise solution, such as mobile sales and field service to wireless warehouse management and customer optimization tools. The cloud offering and new e-commerce solutions, however, are built to support the digital transformation and growth of modern distributors looking for ways to reduce costs and meet the growing demands of customers.
How to Expand Your ERP Presence as a Distributor
Today’s distributors are challenged to rethink the traditional distribution model, as both B2C and B2B customers are coming to them through various channels and expecting self-service portals with the ability to conduct business anytime and anywhere. B2B distributors must take an omni-channel approach and can no longer remain competitive with a simple web presence. Epicor’s e-commerce solutions help distributors expand their digital presence to reach more customers and improve response times.
How Cloud Computing Benefits the Entire Distribution Organization
Cloud computing and improved analytical tools are helping distributors better understand customer buying habits and where their profit is coming from, along with giving them the ability to implement strategic pricing and improve their supply chain visibility. Business owners, CEOs, sales people and service teams have real-time visibility of the entire business, with role-specific data delivered on any device allowing for more responsive or proactive decision making. This can lead to reduced costs, increased sales, an enhanced customer experience and an improved bottom line.
As more and more distributors face competition from high volume suppliers, the ability to remain competitive relies heavily on the ability to deploy the newest technologies in the shortest time possible. Epicor’s new e-commerce solutions and cloud-first approach with Prophet 21 ERP gives businesses the ability to remain agile and responsive with shorter implementation times and continuous release cycles that ensure the latest features and functions are always available.
