Kenrich Industrial, Inc. Taps Epicor Prophet 21 to Accommodate Expansion
Leading distributor opts for modern ERP offering as it moves into manufacturing and to improve inventory control
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Kenrich Industrial, Inc. has chosen the award-winning Epicor® Prophet 21® as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to accurately control inventory and support growth.
Kenrich Industrial, Inc. is based in Waukesha, Wisconsin. The company, which was founded in 1953, is the leading provider of industrial tools, cranes, hoists, and electric motors across the nation with an unparalleled reputation and commitment to service and quality.
The company, which primarily focused on distribution, recently expanded their services to offer manufacturing. This prompted their search for an updated ERP system that could keep up with such expansion, including a system to accurately control inventory and increase efficiencies.
“Since expanding into manufacturing, it’s been really important for us to become more streamlined and efficient. We wanted an ERP solution that was universal to our market, and we know of a lot of businesses in the distribution industry that are using Prophet 21, and they have great things to say.”
Increased expansion with industry-specific software
Kenrich Industrial’s previous system’s limited tools, lack of training, and time-consuming processes hindered the company’s growth capabilities. Employees had a hard time learning the software and mistakes were made. The company’s business model is to add more value-added product and expand into different industries, and Epicor Prophet 21 will allow them to allocate resources to do so by increasing efficiency and eliminating steps in its current processes.
“Epicor Prophet 21 is a proven success for distributors of all sizes, and the software is becoming more powerful and valuable to companies that need a one-stop shop for their services,” said Doug Smith, director of product marketing, retail and distribution, Epicor. “With a combination of features and functionality to accurately streamline processes, Prophet 21 enables distributors to automate pricing, inventory and even quoting, ultimately reducing time consumption.”
