Why Should Manufacturers Choose Aspera to Implement Epicor ERP?

An important question when looking for an ERP system that supports your entire business is,“Why choose this solution/provider over all the others on offer?”

We asked our customers about the key factors they considered important when they choose their ERP solution.  Their answers could be summed up as follows:

  1. Vendor Experience
  2. Assessment of product and vendor
  3. Benefits
  4. Technology

So how does Aspera Solutions, Epicor’s largest partner across UK and Ireland, stack up against these criteria?

Epicor is available both in the cloud (Kinetic) and on premise (Epicor V10X).

In recent years, Epicor has been completely revamped for todays modern, mobile workforce – delivering a superior UX/UI.

Epicor is built on native Microsoft technology platforms based on an SOA architecture and REST services.  As standard there is a Superuser toolkit allowing for the modification of the database, screen customisation/configuration and the application of localised and company based business rules and workflow.  Custom/configured changes delivered through the toolkit have no impact on the core logic of the ERP System

This allows trained superusers to take full control of the application without any risk of interrupting core business logic and also allows for all changes to upgrade with the standard application.
