Configure to Order and Engineer to Order Solutions with Epicor
Epicor stands with very small company in its ability to allow a customized series of questions to be asked of a user in various places of the system and based on those answers, to be able to automatically build a bill of materials, a routing (known as a Method of Manufacturing in Epicor) along with costing, selling price and even the creation of new ‘smart part’ numbers and item records.
To take it to the next level, Epicor is unique without moving up to ‘tier 1’ ERP systems like SAP or Oracle in its ability to allow the same configurator to be exposed in its integrated ecommerce shopping cart to prospects and customers as well. Customers can configure a product on the web and then an Epicor user can look at and even make changes to that configuration in the office. Those changes are reflected back on the ecommerce site in real time since it’s the same configuration engine for both.
