Project Management

Project success is critical to bottom-line profitability, yet many businesses struggle with projects running behind schedule or over budget. Project scope needs to be managed constantly with variations identified immediately. Epicor Project Management is a comprehensive solution for project managers who plan and execute simple or complex projects that can require intricate multilevel phases as well as strict costing and complex billing. Embedded within the robust capabilities of Epicor, Project Management utilizes the detailed estimation, planning, scheduling, costing, and supply chain logistics of Epicor for complete control and analysis of any project.

To be successful in a project environment, project management must permeate every aspect of your business solution. Companies that are able to efficiently meet the demands of managing their portfolio of projects have a distinct advantage over their competition; they have a better understanding of their costs so they can bid and win business with confidence.

We’ve designed Epicor CRM to help you stay ahead of the curve and successfully meet the challenges that the market brings— helping you effectively manage your entire customer lifecycle from prospect to cash to care, improve operational efficiency and accelerate growth—both internally and externally.

Governance, Risk and Compliance

Achieving visibility and effective controls within the enterprise can be a formidable challenge when many of the processes and procedures in place remain manual and fragmented. Effective Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) initiatives help companies, and their employees stay compliant, and ensure that employees and partners at all levels of the organization are aware of the associated  risks of non-compliance.

 

GRC touches every person and every function in an organization in some way. Whether GRC becomes an intolerable burden that increases company overhead or an enabler of efficiency and success depends upon its actual, day-to-day impact on the employees’ work and whether that impact is enabling or debilitating.
