Epicor Manufacturing is a tightly integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP) software solution for identifying and planning the extended enterprise resources you need to capture, produce, ship, and account for customer orders. A distributed, common database provides the ability to access the right information, from the right source, at the right time, empowering all users through the supply chain to make valid, informed decisions. Industry leading technology makes it possible for manufacturers of all sizes, and their trading partners, to derive the benefits of real-time collaboration from Epicor Manufacturing.
Epicor Manufacturing is distinguished by its increasingly broad focus on planning and managing all resources, both within and across location and company boundaries. This expanded scope is most strongly felt in the areas of customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM), product lifecycle management (PLM), quality performance management (QPM), and business performance management (BPM) to name only a few. Manufacturers of all sizes have recognized the value of an integrated suite rather than trying to piece disparate solutions together.

Unprecedented Access to Business Data
The reality of business today is that business leaders need more flexible access to information than ever before. They need a connection to the heartbeat of the business near instantly to respond to business challenges and change as it happens. Whether in the office, in front of a customer, visiting a supplier, or out of town at a conference, the business doesn’t shut down while we are away and so our ability to access our systems to respond to business changes can’t shut down either. Systems of yesterday require access from the office. Today’s business doesn’t only happen in the office. It more often than not happens outside the office. The beauty of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Epicor Express is that it only requires an internet connection and device for instant connectivity to the business.
Software as a Service
Software as a service (SaaS) has quickly become a compelling and credible delivery model for business applications. SaaS, also referred to as “On-Demand” or “Cloud Computing,” eliminates many of the barriers that keep companies from implementing or upgrading their software. More importantly, it enables you to focus on your core business operations instead of managing IT.
The Express delivery model is designed to help you reduce complexity, get up and running quickly, and decrease ongoing operational costs.
Minimize IT Complexity
Express is available to you on-demand, as a service, so there’s no hardware or software to install or maintain—Epicor handles all that for you. All you need is a workstation with an Internet connection and users have access to the system. Ongoing software updates and system maintenance are provided and managed by Epicor so there’s zero IT overhead.
Performance and Reliability
The performance, availability, and security of the Express system are as good, if not better, than that of a typical onpremise software environment. To ensure system reliability, Epicor has made significant investments that enable us to guarantee 99.5% or greater system availability, including:
- System hosting in a tier-one SAS 70 Type
- II certified data center
- A global operations team that monitors and manages the system 24x7x365
- Best-in-class security and high availability capabilities to ensure business continuity
- Advanced data backup
- Faster Time-to-Value
As the solution is provided on-demand and pre-configured for manufacturing, the implementation process is simplified. You are able to quickly setup your system and go live in as little as 20 business days. There is no hardware to set up or software to install. The implementation is solely focused on configuring the system to your organization’s specific needs and migrating your business data. We provide templates, pre-built data sets, online training resources, and access to Epicor experts to help you get up and running as fast as possible.
Affordable ERP On-Demand
Express is provided on a simple subscription basis. There are no large up-front costs—instead there is a minimal setup charge and then an affordable monthly fee for the service. Everything is included within the monthly fee—software, hardware, support, training resources, and on-going system maintenance.
Solutions Based On Experience
For more than 4 decades, Epicor has provided software to manufacturers of all sizes. Today, thousands of job shops and small manufacturers use our solutions to effectively manage their businesses. And while Express is based on the latest technology, it’s our 40 years of experience with organizations like yours that is the foundation of the solution. Experience matters when it comes to delivering a product or service that meets the needs of an industry and the right software solution can help you transform your business and operations. Express is such a solution—providing broad functionality specific to the needs of manufacturers, priced affordably, and delivered in a manner that minimizes complexity.
