Epicor Software Corp. has introduced new features and functionality for Epicor Vantage, the company's comprehensive manufacturing and supply chain management (SCM) solution. Epicor Vantage is built using a service-oriented architecture (SOA) that enables continuous performance initiatives, realtime connectivity between supply chain applications and partners, and greater business agility for make-to-order and mixed-mode manufacturers and distribution companies.
This latest version of Epicor's manufacturing and supply chain platform provides enhanced scalability and performance aimed at supporting the needs of larger organizations with up to 2,000 concurrent users. Significant technology upgrades support the latest releases from Microsoft, including Windows Vista, enabling customers to take advantage of new technologies to boost productivity and collaboration.
Additionally, Epicor Manufacturing now offers expanded thirdparty application integration via Epicor Service Connect, Epicor's standard business process orchestration engine that enables organizations to easily configure integration among applications to best fit their business needs.
Enhancements in the areas of planning, scheduling, and production management also facilitate a streamlining of these processes from an operational perspective. Enhanced Global Finite Scheduling offers real-time assessment of present and short-term plant or warehouse capacity as defined by on-hand resources, such as materials, machines, and labor. The solution also provides improved visibility for planning purposes.
