Epicor ERP version 10 – A Great Solution to Help you Move to Grow Your Business

Epicor ERP, designed for multi-plant businesses, delivers the choice, flexibility and agility needed to support your growing business.  Now you can save even more by linking to your existing EDI system when you upgrade from Vantage ERP™, Manage 2000™, or other companies.  A lower cost means the capital request provides a higher return and is more likely to get approved.  And, you minimize risk by connecting to customers using your time proven system and procedures.

Epicor ERP minimizes the complexities of traditional ERP and using your existing EDI system  which DCS EDI Specials have years of experience in such as:

We can also set your EDI system to run on premise or in the cloud or help you configure TIE KINETIX eVision™ to your key customers if you are not happy with your current EDI system.

DCS extensive experience in automotive, food producers, consumer products, electronics and pharmaceuticals means prompt adaptation of ERP version 10 for B2B to meet your key customers’ requirements.  Additionally, our in-depth analysis of many months of historical data using state of the art analysis tools means that special concessions carefully negotiated from key customers will not get lost during the upgrade to EPR version 10.

You will enjoy a wider fulfillment window when the data entry step is eliminated because Customer Service has more time to scrutinize orders. You will also avoid costly, last minute changes and expedited shipments.

DCS EDI consultants can help you determine if you can integrate your existing EDI system at a reasonable cost or help you select one.  Our time-proven DCS ERP Conversion Service speeds your conversion. DCS is eager to work with your Dynamics provider. Our experience is with the EDI/E-C Gateway: we do not seek non-EDI work. Your first step is easy; just email DCS for your no-cost assessment.

Here’s how automated EDI works with Epicor:

  • Customer Orders (850 or ORDERS) automatically enter the Epicor Sales Order Module, where they are suspended pending Customer Service approval.
  • After packing, Shipment Notices (ASN, 856, DESADV) flow out automatically when the order is closed. Flags may be set to ensure data that could cause a chargeback must be sent.
  • Invoices (810 or INVOIC) are also automatically sent.
  • Other EDI documents such as price sheets and catalogs can be integrated in a matter of days.
  • XML is also possible, but not commonly used by major corporations.

When process automation is achieved your connection to Epicor is completely integrated: your Customer Service, Purchasing, and Shipping Department will not need access your EDI system.

To keep cost low, set alerts, and provide ODBC, positional, or delimited interfaces for each Transaction Set and direction. Another challenge is activating the several dozen correct fields among the hundreds available for each document.

This complexity derives from different formats of business documents exchanged. Consider the inbound customer Purchase Order (Sales Order) formats for Target Stores:

  • Ship-to Distribution Center
  • Ship-to D.C. and “cross-dock” for stores
  • Ship-to Store
  • Ship-to Home

Each type of P.O. must be properly configured or many issues can be encountered.
