Pace International Improves Automation with Epicor Prophet 21
Minnesota Distributor Selects Modern ERP to Scale Business Faster
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Pace International has chosen the award-winning Epicor® Prophet 21® as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to develop automation and improve communication with customers and vendors.
Pace International is based in Rochester, Minn. The company, which was founded in 1972, is an industry-leading distributor of data and television equipment for system operators, installers, dealers, and retailers. Pace International offers products from the industry's most recognized manufacturers as well as its own privately labeled product.
When Pace International began searching for a new ERP system, automation was key. The company was looking to reduce waste and errors in all areas of their processes.
“As technology advances, more customers and vendors want to integrate their systems,” explained Eric Deutsch, vice president of finance, Pace International. “It was key for us to get on an ERP system that allows us to integrate with both customers and vendors. Prophet 21 was a perfect fit.”
Increased Functionality with Industry-Specific Software
Pace International’s previous system lacked functionality and automation. Common tasks such as invoicing, sales orders, and credit card transactions were manual processes, which slowed down employees and created inefficiencies. With Epicor Prophet 21, automation is built into the system, allowing Pace International to do more with the same amount of employees and add resources elsewhere. “It’s going to let us scale a lot faster with more efficient processes,” said Deutsch. “We’ll be able to do more transactions with fewer touches.”
“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.”
