What Is Epicor ERP?
Epicor’s Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software allows companies to come up with a business plan that will allow them to grow. This is possible by incorporating automatic financial processes. Doing so also helps make their finances more transparent. It works by implementing a few or several modules that help to manage your finances.
Having Epicor ERP implemented for your business is crucial for a successful future in the rapidly evolving digital age.
Core Financial Management
These modules: Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, General Ledger, Deferred Revenue, Cash Management, Currency Management will be part of the learning process for master budget planning for your business. Along with this, you will be able to reduce costs, improve cash flow, and increase productivity.
This element of financial management guarantees that your business’s interactive, web-based financial reports are easy to understand while being transparent. This program helps collaboration on budget planning.
Global Business Management
Global business management brings your business together on one cloud platform. This platform deals with multi-currency, multi-site, and multi-company simultaneously.
The cloud centers are equipped with 24/7 support and allow e-voices and e-signatures on electronic reporting. It informs business owners of changes in local and regional regulations regardless of location. It manages risk and compliance with the GCR tool.
Mobile Time & Expense Management
This type of management uses mobile apps that allow the workforce to update changes in financial status regardless of where they are. It gives employees the ability to approve and report offline work. The updates can be seen in real-time.
Enterprise Content Management
Enterprise Content Management helps to streamline productivity. It utilizes a program called DocStar ECM. The program is scalable to your company’s needs. It allows you to take a completely digital approach to financial health. The program is also cloud-based for remote access from any time and any location.
DocStar uses an automated workflow for processing content. The program is also able to extract and store key data via intelligent data capture. It can also be used to enable sales order automation.
Epicor ERP Credit Card Processing
This web-based payment platform gives you access to authorize, settle, and report transactions. It does this while keeping up with Level 3 Compliance. The high-speed connection helps to eliminate delays. Epicor Credit Card Processing is also PCI compliant for gateways and encryption services.
How Can ERP Software Help Your Business?
This software is tailored to the specific needs of your business. The main focuses are budgeting, planning, and even forecasting the growth of your business. It gives business owners real-time fiscal information on a modern platform for local and global business performance.
There are eleven modules available in the financial management software for ERP. This includes the following processes:
- Asset Management
- Accounts Receivable
- Accounts Payable
- Currency Management
- Cash Management
- Deferred Revenue Accounting
- General Ledger
- External Payroll Integration
- Rebates, Promotions, and Royalties
The financial management software focuses on three main pillars: General Ledger, Accounts Payable, and Accounts Receivable.
The general ledger is the center of financial data. If you don’t have a ledger, your business may be in trouble. This ERP module gives you a ton of options
The general ledger relies on accounting controls and system security to protect your business’s integrity. This control allows your company to operate in its fullest capacity.
Having Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) ensures that your company is completely compliant with regulations while getting everything done on time. It’s made up of three components: corporate governance, risk management, and global compliance.
Corporate governance ensures the company reports the right financial information on time. Risk management has built-in, application-level business process management tools that utilize secure workflow automation and audit trails. Global compliance makes sure that your business is following global and local laws of trade.
These all work together to make your company’s financials more transparent while ensuring you are compliant on time.
Accounts Payable uses your billing system to keep track of suppliers’ records and AP invoices to figure out what your company owes. It allows you to easily access invoices, create payments, and keep records indefinitely, so how does automation fit into that?
AP automation simplifies the procure-to-pay process and helps you to pay your company’s invoices on time. It can even automatically gather text from a scanned or photographed invoice and match it with your existing invoice on file. It aids in e-doc storage, advanced workflow, and audit trails. AP automation is set up for full integration with existing Epicor programs.
Account receivable is the system in place to manage invoices, credits, cash management, and even customer management. This allows you to see received payments from your customers, track financial trends, and see outstanding debts owed to your company. Like accounts payable, accounts receivable will benefit from integrating with the ERP software.
Deferred Revenue Accounting
This type of accounting is where revenue is only recognized once the earnings process is complete. In this system, deferred revenue is credited, while cash (and other assets) are debited. The data is then used to forecast future amortization (paying off debts over time).
Sales Tax Automation
Epicor Tax Connect automates all sales. This eliminates the tedious, yet complex task of calculating, collecting, reporting, and remitting taxes over multiple jurisdictions.
Epicor’s project-based accounting software system helps organizations to regain financial control while reducing costs. This helps to make the company more efficient. This program supports detailed project planning and flexible financial accounting.
