Automated Order Entry
Automated Order Entry (DocStar) enables you to create a sales order from an attachment in emails or a scanned image in Epicor. For instance, DocStar can scan a screen capture in Excel, PDF, .tif, Word Document, or other image files that contain a purchase order and then extract the relevant data. Then the data goes through a validation workflow. When it passes the requirements, Epicor will automatically create a sales order.

Connected Enterprise is an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform for Epicor. With this feature, you can better view and track your different sites and machinery. Furthermore, it supports the Microsoft Azure IoT Hub platform.

The list it monitors includes assets, equipment, inventory locations, as well as intelligent products.
One of the updates of Epicor 10.2.400 is the use of the Microsoft IoT hub. This hub collects data from sensors for its reporting and analytics. The MES shop floor home page then shows aggregated data and allows users to examine the performance of their equipment. Epicor users now can create rules to customize the display and set up alerts to inform them promptly the equipment status.
You will need to install AzureRM and IoT Cloud Rule Processor PowerShell modules to process IoT rules in the cloud.
Lite MES – Kinetic

Particularly, Epicor has updated its mobile screens, e.g. Sales Order Entry and MES. The current design enables better and more popular use of Epicor on mobiles and tablets.
