Sunrise Electric Supply, Inc. Selects Prophet 21 to Improve Inventory Accuracy
Leading electrical distributor leverages modern ERP to grow business
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced Sunrise Electric Supply, Inc. has chosen the award winning Epicor® Prophet 21® software as its new enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to improve inventory accuracy and increase efficiency without additional personnel.
Sunrise Electric Supply, Inc. is a full-service electrical distributor and supply company serving customers in a variety of markets throughout the Chicagoland area. Since 1986, the company has been building a strong reputation for its knowledge, experience, responsive service, and expert assistance with customers’ mission-critical needs.
One of the leaders in their industry of sales revenue per employee, the company is focused on increasing sales and doing more with less. When Sunrise Electric Supply began searching for a new ERP system, features such as quick response times, pricing availability, and overall efficiency were key factors in their decision.
“I think that everyone is trying to do more with less. By giving our seasoned employees the right tools to work with, we will be able to continue to grow our business without adding more personnel.”
Maintaining old school values with a state-of-the-art ERP system
Inventory accuracy was a main issue with Sunrise Electric Supply’s previous system. The inventory updates would have a day lag between actual and system on-hand quanities. “Our competitors can get pricing availability right at their fingertips. We’ve always been able to be very reactive to our customers’ needs but the lack of real-time data was putting us behind our competitors. Prophet 21 will allow us to be proactive with pricing and availability,” said Byrd. The new ERP system has reorganized and expanded the company’s warehouse and has automated the purchasing processes completely. “These quicker response times will result in an immediate gratification of our customer’s needs,” said Byrd. “The key to our success will be maintaining old school values with a state-of-the-art ERP system.”
“The Epicor Prophet 21 solution 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 Mark Jensen, director of product management, Epicor. “Prophet 21 software offers a combination of features and functionality that can accurately streamline processes. Pricing, inventory and even quoting becomes automated reducing time consumption.”
