Epicor Prophet 21 ERP to Streamline Application Footprint and Support Global Growth Plans
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Radwell International Inc. of Lumberton, New Jersey, has selected the Epicor Prophet 21 ERP solution to increase business efficiency and streamline processes for overall performance.
Operating under the trade name PLC Center (www.plccenter.com), Radwell International stocks and sells new and surplus industrial automation, MRO, pneumatic/hydraulic, motion control, electronic, HVAC and electrical control equipment for plant floor and facilities maintenance machinery. Radwell International also offers full component-level repair capabilities for industrial electronic and electrical equipment, as well as buying surplus industrial controls. The company currently has locations in the U.K. and Canada in addition to its U.S. headquarters, with aggressive growth plans both domestically and worldwide.
According to John Janthor, vice president of information technology at Radwell International, “After considering several ERP vendors, we determined that Epicor was best able to meet the majority of our requirements, as well as address our concerns about a large system implementation to replace our in-house solutions. We have a rather large, complex technology environment with over 30 legacy applications. We felt the core Prophet 21 system, combined with the flexible framework, will allow us to greatly reduce the legacy application footprint and be a catalyst for our growth.”
In the initial phase, approximately 400 users will benefit from a fully integrated solution that incorporates a Microsoft Windows-based platform and SQL Server database offering in-depth data analytic tools for ease of retrieving information, and built-in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) capabilities to drive additional revenue. Radwell International will join many of the most successful distributors in North America that use an Epicor business software system to improve warehouse, order and inventory management; purchasing automation; financial management; and reporting and business intelligence analysis.
“Radwell International chose the Epicor Prophet 21 ERP solution for its international capabilities, multiple languages, and development toolkits that will help to grow their business internationally,” said Malcolm Fox, vice president, product marketing for Epicor. “In the end, they were impressed by our strong understanding of their business and deep commitment to the distribution industry.”
