Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of industry-specific enterprise software solutions for midmarket companies, today announced its Epicor iScala 2.2 solution continues to be adopted by a wide range of companies around the globe. Epicor also announced new enhancements and expanded product functionality to meet both new and emerging customer requirements.

A powerful collaborative enterprise resource planning (ERP) system designed from the ground up to provide complete business management capabilities, Epicor iScala 2.2 has been selected by leading global companies such as Grand Hotel Marriott Moscow, Ilim Pulp Corporation, Arabi Enertech K.S.C., Packard Electric Systems/Samara Cable Company, Cavotec, and Sphl AG.

Established in 1877, Sphl AG is a machine-building company based in the east of Switzerland. In 1998, it began a major project to re-engineer its business processes and make it more profitable. To support the new business processes, Sphl AG evaluated a new ERP and manufacturing software solution. Six years after the initial project, Sphl has now completed its migration to the latest version of iScala and is using the new visual manufacturing tools to support their lean and agile business vision. By deploying this integrated solution, Sphl has far exceeded its original targets achieving a 30% productivity gain combined with the ability to deliver ordered goods to customers 50% faster while reducing manufacturing operating costs by 30%.

Another customer leveraging iScala 2.2 is Cavotec Group, a global provider and world leader in the design and manufacture of innovative mobile power supply solutions. With seven manufacturing companies located in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Sweden, and 24 sales and service companies, the Cavotec Group serves more than 30 countries on five continents.

"Epicor has greatly improved our business processes at Cavotec," said Leena Essn, Group Financial Director at Cavotec. The move to iScala 2.2 is helping us consolidate and refine our business processes for the benefit of our localized operations and customers.

New and Enhanced Product Functionality

Responding to customer requirements and reaffirming its commitment to enhancing and expanding product functionality, Epicor recently introduced new capabilities for its Epicor iScala 2.2 solution.

New features include requisition management capabilities to support stock requisitions, managing the entire process through to approval and fulfillment. New central warehousing functionality allows sales offices to view local and central warehouses to assess inventory situations, such as on-hand inventory balances, known inventory plans and available to promise status. This enables companies to focus on fulfilling customer requirements while reducing inventory. New security protocols around journal capabilities have been added for improved audit trails to addressing corporate governance requirements. Additionally, Epicor iScala 2.2 features a new Bill of Materials configurator and supply chain enhancements such as stock allocation, stock valuation by item or by warehouse modules.

Integration of service information to iScala CRM enables customers to view service information as well as sales and quotations. Additionally functional enhancements have been added to the iScala Service Management, Contract Management and Asset Management modules.

New features to address the hospitality industry have also been added, as well as expanded support for the pharmaceutical and industrial markets. Enhancing Epicor iScalas global support, new localization features have been added to address the local legal and fiscal needs for the vast majority of South American countries. Additionally, localization enhancements have been added for Germany, Austria, Sweden, Russia and Thailand.

For more than 20 years, Epicor Scala customers have come to expect valuable enhancements and expanded product functionality on a regular basis, said Steve Humble, senior director of product marketing for Epicor iScala solutions. The new Epicor iScala 2.2 features offer improved configurability and functionality to help our customers achieve operational efficiency and become market leaders.
