Auto Parts Manufacturer and Distributor Turns to Epicor for Increased Efficiency and Inventory Management
Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, today announced that Codan Rubber Mexico has selected the Epicor 9 next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution. The global rubber auto parts manufacturer and its local auto parts distributor, Comercializadora Tepeyac Autopartes, will be implementing the Epicor solution to help increase visibility of the business, optimize expense management and enable real-time decision making.
Codan Rubber Mexico chose Epicor for its efficient control of manufacturing processes, from product quoting for the automotive assembly plants, to load monitoring. The company found that the Epicor solution fit their requirements as a midmarket automotive manufacturer, with tools to easily manage Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), an important process for original equipment customers.
"In the first meeting with Epicor, we gained a good understanding of the solution architecture and functionality," said Javier Tamez, general manager at Codan Rubber Mexico. "We reviewed the Epicor ERP solution for user-friendly data management, visibility into manufacturing processes and integration between application modules. For all these reasons, including its tool for calculating national taxes (IETU), we selected Epicor."
With Epicor ERP, Codan Rubber Mexico expects to gain increased visibility of production and costs, through a business platform that is easy to use, personalize and implement, designed expressly for midmarket manufacturing companies at a lower total cost of ownership.
Codan Rubber Mexico currently uses a solution designed for sales, administration and finance; as they began to roll-out their existing solution's manufacturing and distribution capabilities for better materials management and smarter use of manufacturing resources, they found that it didn't work and consulting services were excessively expensive.
"I like Epicor's implementation methodology, in particular the process of establishing milestones with concrete success criteria in terms of return of investment (ROI) for each stage of implementation. This gives us assurance that both Codan Rubber Mexico and Epicor have the same picture of the expected benefits --including operations and budget. Our experience with Epicor has been very satisfactory," concluded Tamez.
