Innovize Selects Epicor ERP for Upcoming Growth Goals
Flexibility to Quickly Make Changes Key to Expansion Across New Industries
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announcedInnovize has chosen the award-winning enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, and human capital management (HCM) solution, Epicor HCM, to streamline and simplify business processes.
Innovize is a growing company offering custom development and manufacturing solutions -- including converting and contract manufacturing -- for product designers, developers and managers. With a keen eye on the medical manufacturing space, the company needed a new ERP system to better track processes, jobs and customer orders.
Previously focused on printing opportunities, Innovize made the decision to pursue more medical manufacturing prospects and quickly realized its ERP system was not going to be adequate to support the new business initiative; it lacked the necessary manufacturing management control tools.
"We couldn't track parts and orders in as granular a fashion as we would have liked in our previous ERP system. In Epicor ERP, we have found a solution that is powerful enough for our needs nearly straight out of the box. The integration between the Epicor HCM and ERP solutions will also be pivotal to eliminating paper processes related to employee personnel and performance records.”
Innovating Integration to Modernize Business Processes
Innovize makes custom-made, made-to-order and made-to-stock parts. Because of that the company also works with its customers to devise strategic inventory management programs, but in a way where costing works the same way whether it's a made-to-stock or made-to-order project. By deploying Epicor ERP, Innovize now has a powerful and flexible platform that allows them to reconfigure parts of the system on their own to quickly adapt business processes which in turn allows the business to grow.
Additionally, Innovize is deploying Epicor HCM to streamline and integrate business processes related to human capital management, such as personnel records and performance reviews while eliminating paper-heavy processes.
“Custom manufacturing is a challenging field for even the most agile business,” said Matt Mullen, senior vice president, portfolio marketing, Epicor Software. “Epicor ERP and HCM provide a powerful one-two punch combination that gives companies a flexible solution to integrate core business with human resources functions to give stakeholders a 360-degree view of their company.”
“We need flexibility in what we are building, and Epicor allows us to basically take on any kind of product our customers need us to build,” Rutkiewicz concluded.
