The addition of intricate search capabilities throughout attached documents allows users to search for key words, phrases, or pictures. Drop-ship functionality has been enhanced between sales order, purchase order and shipping to automatically pass information between modules. The software also now allows production cost calculations by lot number, in addition to existing item number, manufacturing number, sales order number, and production order number

Encompix 9.4, an ERP solution for project-based, engineer-to-order manufacturing operations, now features an AutoCAD integration, which allows the software to exchange bills of material and item master information with AutoCAD, streamlining the flow of information from engineering to production and planning. Projects can be started from scratch in AutoCAD or based on previously designed solutions, and then released into the production system with the most accurate sourcing and costing information available. Version 9.4 also offers improved visibility and consistency of the actual versus planned cost calculations on a variety of reports and query screens across an entire project, from engineering through installation, providing an accurate, current picture of profitability.

The Visiprise ERP Shop Floor Integration 2.0 is a packaged composite application for use with the SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (SAP MII) application. It integrates the SAP ERP application with the SAP Manufacturing Execution by Visiprise application to provide manufacturers in the complex, discrete manufacturing industries with a complete record of how their products were manufactured, from planning to execution. Version 2.0 includes repetitive manufacturing capabilities along with other new features, such as planned order integration, batch confirmation, batch traceability reporting and multiple integration landscapes.

Epicor iScala 2.3 SR1 is an integrated enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM) and supply chain management (SCM) solution designed to support organizations with global, multi-company or multi-site business models. Supporting lean techniques, the Advanced Manufacturing module provides additional functionality for multiple processes within the production environment, including support for managing production across multiple plants. The new Lease Contract Management module supports both operating and finance lease contracts, and is fully integrated with Asset Management, Preventative Maintenance and other critical capabilities. The addition of Microsoft Office Project Server 2007 Integration to Epicor Project Management provides task scheduling, resource management, tracking and reporting and team collaboration.
