Epicor ERP Implementation Cost

Epicor Kinetic (ERP) Implementation Cost: Why is it not published?

A common concern of all requests we have received is: What does Epicor Kinetic (ERP) implementation cost? In most cases, we will need more information from the enterprise in order to send out a quote, and the rationale behind such a delay is our customer-centric pricing procedure. Likewise, it is for the customers’ benefit.

1. Each Enterprise is Unique in Terms of Objective, Scale, and Operating Activities.

The price is computed on a case-by-case basis. Indeed, Epicor Kinetic (ERP) is a central database system possibly shared by all departments in an enterprise. However, the answer to which modules to implement for which department is not the same amongst all buyers. It is the strategic decision of each company to achieve their own goals, fit their scale, support their operational culture, and, last but not least, correspond to their budget.

2. Buyers' Time Investment Plan Decides the Price.

Epicor Kinetic (ERP) deployment always involves training for users. Usually, ERP implementation consultants conduct training to some key users, who will then pass on the knowledge to their colleagues. The process continues until the end user agrees that they understand and know how to use the system. Thus, it depends much on the buyer to ensure the knowledge transition’s quality and save time. Likewise, they can reduce costs.

3. Less Customization is the Key.

Epicor Kinetic (ERP) is complete, ready-to-use software for all industries, especially manufacturing. The software design is aimed at keeping customization possibilities to a minimum. Thus, buyers can work together with their implementation partners and speed up the entire deployment process. Again, time is money, and buyers can decide the price.

To sum up, our ERP implementation pricing policy is ultimately to serve the customers, and buyers can affect the total cost. Thus, it is recommendable for buyers to plan carefully in terms of time, personnel, and finance before the management board decides to invest in an ERP system. Besides, it is also vital to choose experienced implementation consultants to avoid or minimize software adjustment.

How to choose the right ERP solution

Here are some tips for leaders and CEOs to choose the best vendor with the best ERP solution for their companies. These tips are based on customers’ feedback and recommendations, namely those on TrustRadius and FeaturedCustomers. The order is tentative. Thus, each company can have its own schedule based on the information available to them.

1. Discuss among leaders

It is crucial that leaders and investors have information about the process to choose the best ERP option and vendor. That means, every step should be as transparent as possible.

2. Assess the needs

You might want to do a SWOT* analysis of business and operations before doing anything else. Notably, it is necessary to detect the need to innovate the company’s operations.

It can be the company’s weaknesses or challenges, possibly due to some disruptors or competitors’ sudden growth. It can also be the opportunity to scale production or improve performance due to new technologies or policies in your sector.

3. Determine own criteria to choose the right ERP solution and vendor

The clearer criteria you have, the faster you can choose the appropriate ERP solution as well as the best vendor. Furthermore, the solution requirements can also serve as the benchmark for the latter. They can be features either in general or specifically for a department, budget, platform, schedule, and any concerns that your team might think of.

4. Seek consultations

It is optimal to search for the vendors in your country to save travel costs and misunderstandings during implementation. However, it would be better to choose the best in your region if you are a transnational company. That means widening the geographical scope of your search.

Do not hesitate to contact vendors by leaving your email address or phone number. The best ones usually reach you as soon as possible to learn more about your needs. In addition, they are proactive in arranging phone calls, in-person or Skype meetings, or online demos.

The first impression might also be one of the tips for the best ERP solution and vendor.

7. Check vendor references and/or make decisions

You might require the vendors to give you some references. But, in reality, the expert ones are usually so proactive that they will share their achievements with you even before being asked.

Once you have made a decision, work closely with your ERP vendor to implement the solution. You can then start mapping your critical milestones and recording your course to success.
