Enterprise cloud and future-focused modular design help distributors stay ahead of changing supply chain landscape
Epicor, a global leader of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced the latest release of Epicor Prophet 21, the cloud-based industry productivity solution for distributors. The new release underscores the company’s continued commitment to build best-in-class Industry Cloud solutions that give distributors even more power to stay ahead of the ever-changing supply chain landscape.
Distributors have navigated an unprecedented set of challenges over the past 18 months including supply chain disruption and changing customer expectations for digital connectedness. The need for flexible, insights-driven industry productivity platforms has never been greater. According to the latest Epicor Industry Insights Report 2021, 92 percent of distributors believe that cloud would have helped them deal better with Covid-19, and 82 percent of all business leaders polled said Covid-19 had accelerated their cloud migration plans.
The latest release of Epicor Prophet 21 helps distributors address today’s challenges while optimising for the future through new cloud-based, industry-focused capabilities that help tackle complex supply chain needs and scale operations for the future.
Enterprise Cloud for Large Distributors
Epicor Prophet 21 offers a new Epicor Cloud Enterprise Services package for large distributors looking for greater control and flexibility to manage global operations on a scalable and more secure cloud platform. New enterprise cloud services include isolated cloud infrastructure for greater autonomy, customisable upgrade schedule, additional processing capacity, more database access, and dedicated premium support expertise.
Modular Design for Growth
The latest release not only delivers new cloud capabilities, it also provides a path for customer growth that can easily adapt to evolving needs. For example, the modular design enables components to be installed and scaled out independently, making it easy to personalise and configure the Epicor Prophet 21 solution. In addition, the user experience is more productive as the flow of information between the browser and server has been optimised, retrieving information faster and making it easier to manage data. This release also reinforces the company’s commitment to global customers with enhanced functionality around regulatory requirements and tax changes.
“Our latest release of Epicor Prophet 21 focuses on building cloud momentum, ensuring that both functionality and performance are at their peak as distributors embark on their digital transformation,” said Himanshu Palsule, Epicor President and CTO. “Whether it’s to drive efficiencies, find new ways to grow revenue or make better, more informed strategic decisions, Epicor Prophet 21 allows customers to focus on what they do best to run their businesses.”
