How Your ERP Software Helps You Plan for the New Now

Even as the day-to-day influence of the COVID-19 pandemic drops off, changes caused by it continue to impact manufacturing and the supply chain.

The pandemic created a New Now, forever changing the supply chain and how business is conducted across the globe.

It probably won’t surprise you to learn that 72% of supply chain executives polled by consulting firm Ernst & Young said the pandemic had a negative effect on operations. Or that 6 in 10 execs view increasing efficiency and transparency as top goals in the coming years.

Companies now need more input and insight to compete effectively. They need to make better use of business intelligence and have strategies to quickly increase productivity to remain competitive.

The right software solution can help automate business functions, from inventory management to customer service. Modern ERP designed specifically for companies in the manufacturing sector is well suited to address these needs.

An Epicor ERP system can help your business plan for the future and stabilize your forecasts for the years to come. In this blog, we'll go over some of the ways your ERP system can help you plan for the New Now.


An Epicor ERP platform can be adapted to your specific work situation, no matter where you are located. Cloud-based ERP gives you the capability to work anywhere.

Whether you’re working from home or on a business trip, you can always access vital information through cloud ERP. That includes business operations data, financial reporting, and anything else you may need within your ERP solution.

Your ERP can also be adapted to changes within your industry. As supply chain management strategies change, you may need adjustments to your ERP platform with custom dashboards and reporting. The experts at Cre8tive Technology & Design have years of experience developing customizations that can fit your needs.

Better Customer/Supplier Relationships

Having a robust ERP system will improve your relationships with your customers and your suppliers. A well-functioning ERP platform has the capability to consistently optimize business processes, saving you and your clients money. That's vitally important with the volatility of the market and supply chain in the New Now.

Epicor ERP can also display products that are needed right on your dashboard, making the ordering process for raw materials simple.

More Cybersecurity Capabilities

Using a cloud-based ERP system will also ensure you are more protected from cyberattacks.
