Epicor Congratulates Ultra Machining Company on 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Award Recognition

Precision Manufacturer Recognized for Workplace Leadership Excellence Leveraging Epicor University

Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today congratulated its customer Ultra Machining Company (UMC) for being recognized with a 2014 Manufacturing Leadership Award (ML Award) in the Workplace Leadership category for its “ERP Re-implementation” project.

UMC is one of the premiere manufacturers for precision machined parts and assemblies in the aerospace and medical device industries. As the company began to experience rapid growth, UMC implemented the “ERP Re-implementation” project, utilizing the complete suite of training resources offered by Epicor University to ensure all departments understand the full capacity of the company's Epicor next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.

As an ISO and ASO certified organization, these two governing bodies maintain the way UMC conducts business and require the company to keep a solid database to effectively manage business processes. It was important UMC understand the full potential of Epicor ERP to meet ISO and ASO data requirements.

“Epicor University provided our company with resources and tools to help us realize the greatest benefit from our Epicor ERP software investment,” said Don Tomann, CEO of UMC. “Combining our knowledge with the knowledge of the experts from Epicor University empowered individual employees to learn in the way they learn best.”

Epicor University provides customers with resources and tools to help them realize the greatest benefit from their enterprise software investment. UMC leveraged all aspects of the training available to them through Epicor University including virtual and onsite education sessions. Through Epicor University, UMC is able to focus on specific customers and product cycles to access all of the data in a timely manner. By having access to this real-time data, UMC executive leadership can make better business decisions and operate the company in the most efficient manner.

“We commend the UMC team for their continued strategy and collaboration to understand the power of ERP technology combined with business processes,” said Louise Keppel, vice president, Epicor University worldwide. “Turning data into actionable intelligence to meet their customer demands is crucial to stay one step ahead of the competition.”
