future growth expectations?

 Are you subject to generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), international financial
reporting standards (IFRS), Sarbanes-Oxley, or any other national or international financial
oversight?
 Do you need financial transparency across all of your business units or is your organization
still using spreadsheets to manage its financial health?
 Are you using a highly customized system that does not allow the ability to upgrade to new,
more efficient technology platforms?

These are some features which appeals to most of the senior level management before choosing Epicor
 Improving cash flow performance
 Increasing the accuracy of your costing
 Protecting your profit margins
 Reducing your inventories
 Shortening your product lifecycles

A. IT Service Management

IT failure can have a significant impact on an organization’s longevity let alone performance.
Increasingly, IT departments are under pressure to align IT with strategic business goals and
needs, improve performance, and make IT costs more transparent. In order to meet these
objectives, IT managers require structured solutions and guidelines.

Benefits

tools.
 Epicor ITSM solutions provide a robust set of service management features that support

 The best practices of ITSM that it is cost-effectively
 Manage the strategic deployment of IT resources and assets.
 The net result—greater productivity, seamless change management, and efficient IT
service.

Professional Services Automation

Epicor’s Professional Service Automation (PSA) solution provides much more than traditional
professional services automation functionality. It reaches across the entire enterprise and, as a
result, provides numerous benefits to any services organization. Professional service organizations
are feeling the strain and looking to more innovative systems that will reduce non-billable hours,
streamline processes, and increase overall efficiency.

Benefits

 Proactively plan projects and make more informed decisions particularly when matching
skills and availability to project needs.

 Painless time and expenses entry with submission and approval over the web, as well as
flexible invoicing generation and detailed project billing features.

 Minimize non-billable hours, maximize revenues, better plan your projects and produce
more profitable engagements while increasing customer and staff satisfaction.

 Track and access complete client relationship management from opportunity management
to service delivery to billing to support.

 Robust financials provide sophisticated functionality needed by services organizations


including project accounting.

 Make better decisions with integrated business intelligence solutions. Reports range from
staff utilization, profitability and revenue by company, project and employee to plan versus
actual on a project and missing timesheet reports.

in progress, accounts receivable and planned vs. actuals from anywhere at anytime.

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

SOA is an approach to developing enterprise software applications in such a way that software
processes are broken down into services which are then made available and discoverable on a
network. Each service provides functionality that can be adapted to the needs of the enterprise
while hiding the underlying implementation details. SOA addresses the complexity, inflexibility,
and weaknesses of existing approaches to business process design, workflow, and application
integration.

Epicor started with .NET, Microsoft’s platform for building and exposing applications with Web
services. Web services all use one standard, Extensible Markup Language (XML), which makes it
easier for business software to communicate. By exposing business logic as Web services, Epicor
allows you to build your own business rules, better manage business processes, and access the
system anywhere, anytime, and any way you want. Combine this with Epicor Service Connect, a
business process orchestration tool that allows you to define workflows from business logic
exposed as Web services, to achieve made-to-order process workflows that meet the needs of any
business.

Benefits of Service Oriented Architecture

 SOA facilitates collaboration and information sharing throughout the organization and with
external partners.
 By exposing business processes, SOA helps businesses to focus on the best ways to
improve operations.
 SOA provides the ability to support a business model that crosses organization lines.
 SOA enhances collaboration, facilitates end-to-end business processes, and improves
operational effectiveness.
 SOA allows you to customize your business processes without modifying source code.
 With SOA, making the processes in your systems match your business is a matter of
configuration, not customization.
 That means that when it’s time to upgrade to the next release, you can do so much more
easily than if you had customizations scattered throughout your implementation.
 An additional benefit of SOA is that it provides the ability to streamline business processes,
which in turn promotes agile business process management.
 SOA provides a way to make business processes more visible so they can be customized
and optimized to better meet increasing customer demands for reduced response time while
maintaining high quality and reliability.
 SOA keeps the complexities of application-to-application and business-to-business
integration at arms length, significantly reducing costs, and raising technology to a business
level.
 Epicor offers complete SOA enterprise solutions to help you connect people, processes,
and applications for a flexible, visible, and agile business.
