Nothing lasts forever, even when it’s your favorite ERP system. Don’t worry, though. As Epicor changes its focus away from Epicor Enterprise, it has provided a path to an even better ERP—Epicor Kinetic. Improved technology means a more robust system to aid your company in keeping up with trends as well as meeting customer expectations better than before.
The Need for Change
It’s normal for a legacy system to lose efficiency over time. It’s not because the system isn’t good; it’s because technology continues to evolve, resulting in older programs going out of date. This is particularly true when you haven’t kept up with necessary updates. Your IT team may make fixes, but this is just extra time and money wasted unnecessarily.
Your company evolves to better meet the needs of your customers. If you don’t change and grow, you could lose vital business contracts. Doesn’t it just make sense that your ERP system should do the same? If you want to stay competitive, you need the latest software that will meet or exceed the needs of your company.
