For manufacturers with more than one location, records of the transactions that occur across the business often get scattered and disorganized. This makes it uniquely challenging to gain the insight you need to address resource requirements, meet customer expectations, and improve profitability.

Achieving these competing goals requires careful consideration of what, how, and when to produce and sell. By optimizing the location of production facilities globally, manufacturing businesses can beat the competition on a local and international level. If a well-thought-out network of production and distribution sites is established, the synergies originating from being closer to customers and distributors make the business more recognizable and profitable in all regions.

With the Multi-Site Management module in Epicor ERP, you can easily manage intercompany activity and get financial control on all sites in one system. Unique to the Epicor approach, each site may run Epicor ERP in the cloud or on-premises, whichever you prefer, for ultimate business flexibility and regional fit. Easily include any number of servers, databases, cloud data centers, companies, countries, and continents across your sites to truly achieve a unified, borderless, global business.
