SCT Corporation: The Last Viable Process Manufacturing Vendor Standing?


Although a relative newcomer, the Process Manufacturing Solutions division of SCT has been able to remain focused on the process manufacturing industry.

Epicor Delivers On Milestones, But Its Situation Remains Bleak


On November 21, Epicor introduced the immediate availability of Epicor eManufacturing, the next generation of its former Vantage manufacturing solution. However, the product launch seems to have taken a toll in the company’s financial performance. On October 31, Epicor announced results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2000. Net loss for the third quarter of 2000 was $12.3 million.

navision weakness  like Great Plains and Navision, which have decided to deliver their capabilities in manageable chunks, seems to have paid off even though their offerings are narrower than Epicor's. Further, Epicor's requirement of exclusivity for its resellers has caused its indirect channel to dwindle and has reduced its ability to attract new resellers. While exclusivity might create deeper commitment and expertise in its reseller channel in the long term, we believe that the timing of the initiative was poor. As a res Read More

As ERP becomes more and more of a commodity, vendors are faced with the challenge of delivering an affordable core offering by delivering just the right mix of “standard” back-office capabilities and the vertical-specific capabilities demanded by the customers they serve. In light of this reality, some vendors have positioned themselves as best-of-breed ERP vendors that serve certain key verticals

Even so, the typical buyer of ERP may not be aware of Navision’s history demanding that Read More
