British cosmetics company Badgequo selects Epicor ERP
Industry tags: Manufacturing, distribution  

Epicor profile

Online comparison: Epicor ERP vs. other leading ERP software
"Aggressively growing cosmetics manufacturer/distributor Badgequo is in need of corporate software to offer single-truth data, eliminate manual data re-entry, and provide full visibility into its extended supply chain. This organization is a real-life example of a small company with less than 30 employees but complex and extended business processes that require reliable and modern ERP software. Among specific functions that Badgequo required was remote access to ERP from any type of mobile device. The company was also very excited about the system’s available-to-deliver and real-time inventory functionality. It’s worth noting that Badgequo will receive a complete set of functional modules that it has never used before but is planning to leverage too, such as HR management, product development workflow, and others." — Aleksey Osintsev, TEC Research Analyst

The choice for IT process automation (ITPA) solutions is vast, in light of providers like Microsoft (former Opalis), BMC Software, Hewlett-Packard (HP), Computer Associates, Redwood Software, ActiveBatch, NetIQ, IBM, Quest Software, UC4 Software, etc. For its part, SAP should be pleased by the endorsed Cisco solution embracing the SAP Solution Manager." — P.J.

"Oracle’s industry-leading solution for project management, Primavera P6, is now available as a best-of-breed PPM solution for SAP customers using SAP ERP. With this move, Oracle is definitely competing with SAP, which in fact is good for customers, since they how have a choice. Fully integrated PPM solution can be a decent option for organizations that for different reasons have had to use, and therefore support, integration of two independent systems." — Aleksey Osintsev, TEC Research Analyst
