Global Business Operations Software for Management

With Epicor’s global business management software, you will be able to operate your business to its fullest abilities. It doesn’t matter how widespread your workforce is. Your business can use this software to its advantage. Epicor offers several programs essential to the success of your business, including:

  • Multi-company management
  • Flexible deployment
  • Multisite management
  • Multilingual management software
  • Country specific functionality
  • Master data management

Multi-company management allows you to manage every business entity with uniform business operations. ERP software promotes intercompany trading, centralized purchasing, forecasting company-wide, and even credit checking.

Flexible deployment allows you to deploy your management solutions for a faster implementation. This is possible with the implementation of the cloud. It allows you to rely less on the traditional IT infrastructure. You will be able to deploy these solutions on a singular server OR across many databases.

Multisite management supports a centralized system for accounting and purchasing. It also allows for separate production and distribution processes between facilities.

Multilingual management software allows for support in different languages. This makes it helpful for any country in which they operate. The software includes full Unicode and double-byte support.

This country-specific functionality refers to the ability to adhere to the local standards. This includes the requirements for whichever country your business might be in. It includes regulations for IFRS, GAAP, taxes, and fiscal reporting regulations

Master data management ensures that your entire business meets these requirements. You will be able to access real-time updates. This access allows you to boost customer satisfaction. It also helps to maintain operational efficiency and improve your business performance.

Managing a Global Workforce

Without your employees, your business would fail to thrive. Utilizing Epicor Human Capital Management (HCM) will allow you to manage any employees from anywhere.

To guarantee the future of your company, your HR department needs to be able to focus on strategic initiatives. With the automation of the HR department, you will find more time to focus on those more important tasks. Epicor HCM consists of the following automated services:

  • Talent management
  • Total compensation management
  • Timesheets
  • Employee self-service
  • Absence management
  • Law firm package

HCM handles everything from recruiting new employees to preparing seasoned employees for retirement. It also helps with everything between.

It is ideal for updating handbooks and uploading training materials to the system. This allows your employees to be more productive. It encourages them to take charge of their career and become better employees. It gives your staff insight into their performance. It is also great for identifying and celebrating the highest performers.

The automation of these processes helps you to lower costs and save money. The HCM technology is compatible with your company’s cloud software. It can also be useful for managing on-premises operations. It is possible to access the software on any web-enabled device. This software is completely customizable to the specific needs of your company.
