Epicor ERP Expands Features, Functionality, & Reach

Dublin, CA - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced the general availability of version 12.11 of its Epicor Prophet 21® wholesale distribution enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, featuring new Sales Master Inquiry, DynaChange® Tab Creator, and Container Building functionality, and Accounts Payable automation with doc-link™ for Epicor. Currently available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and the Caribbean, Epicor Prophet 21 continues to expand its global reach with the addition of country-specific functionality (CSF) for Mexico in this new release.

  • The Sales Master Inquiry window (SMI) is a tool for distributors to analyze their customers’ revenues and bookings. Using SMI, the distributor can help discern problems in the sales cycle, identify opportunities, and then take an action.
  • For those customers with the Epicor Portal Designer feature, the new version adds DynaChange Tab Creator functionality. Tab Creator lets a user take an existing Portal and place it on a new tab that is created within an existing Prophet 21 window. Users can map the retrieval arguments of the portal to fields in the window, so that the portal will automatically retrieve data based on the current context of the window.
  • Container Building functionality allows the distributor additional flexibility when dealing with overseas suppliers. By working with suppliers and freight forwarders, the distributor can help control the flow of goods coming from overseas, by directing which Purchase Orders and line items should be loaded onto containers for shipment—allowing better management of incoming inventory to meet the distributor’s priorities and stocking levels.
  • Users looking to automate their Accounts Payables process can do so with new functionality via doc-link for Epicor, an Integrated Document Management System (IDMS) designed to increase productivity and reduce paper handling.
