Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, has announced that Deep Sea Electronics has chosen the next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP version 10, to streamline processes and allow better transparency of business data to support growth.
Founded in 1975, Deep Sea Electronics is one of the world’s top manufacturers of generator control, auto transfer switch and battery charger equipment. The company sells its products to 150 countries direct from its UK head office and through comprehensive distributor network. It is proud to be known for its quality, designs and UK made products, a large proportion of which is now exported across four continents.
Due to dramatic growth over the last 10 years, Deep Sea Electronics required an ERP solution which would be able to provide a fully integrated approach. Epicor ERP provides vertical specific functionality on one platform with a single shared database, to ensure that real-time information is available to users, whatever task they are performing. Epicor ERP was selected over several key competitors due to its understanding of the company’s strategy and its offering of a tailored solution for its business needs.
“Our business had outgrown the current solution and it had started to become a burden. Therefore, it was the ideal opportunity to move to a different ERP system,” commented Tim South, financial director of Deep Sea Electronics.
“With the help of Epicor ERP, the software will streamline processes and hold all the data in one place. The information will be available in near real-time, enhancing our decision making and helping us to continue growing,” added South.
“Businesses need to operate in the most efficient way possible, with data available in one place and viewed in real-time,” said Steve Winder, regional vice president for Epicor Software in the UK and Ireland. “With Epicor ERP, we are able to help Deep Sea Electronics gain visibility into exactly what’s happening within the business, have greater control and support the growth strategy.”
