Jan. 19, 2021
How SME manufacturers are moving beyond yesterday's cumbersome ERP with personalization, AI, and IoT

In this episode of Industrial Evolution...

Two senior leaders from Epicor, a global leader in SME digital manufacturing transformation, discuss the beating heart of tomorrow's factory: Cloud-based ERP with personalized workflows, AI assistants, and out-of-the-box IoT data solutions... moving beyond yesterday's cumbersome databases that were expensive to maintain and even harder to use.

Terri Pruett Hiskey (VP of Global Product Marketing) and Stephen Edgington (VP of Engineering) lean on decades of experience serving over 20,000 customers as we dig into the past, present, and future of ERP.

We peel back the layers of the digital core—a central hub that ingests, transforms, and intelligently presents data based on who's using the software and what they're doing at any given moment, affecting everyone from the shop floor to the top floor.

We also dive into the growing demand for AI assistants and IoT, data solutions that support new capabilities and productivity with minimal effort and disruption.

And finally, we explore some real-world success stories, from race cars to the kitchenware brand that may be sitting in your cupboard right now.

This is the new age of ERP software for SMEs, helping small but mighty manufacturers stay competitive in the face of constant change.
