The pace of order fulfillment is growing every day, and sales are happening faster than ever. That’s why Epicor Quick Ship is becoming the preferred way to streamline shipping processes to better compete in today’s digital marketplace.

Epicor Quick Ship incorporates the Epicor Kinetic Design and Framework in a new web application. This delivers access to critical data for shipping and order fulfillment activities from anywhere. Quick Ship integrates seamlessly with your ERP to help you process shipping transactions quickly and efficiently.

When an order is pulled in to the Customer Shipment Entry screen, Quick Ship contacts the selected carrier—via web API and retrieves the appropriate freight charges and tracking information based on the size, weight, dimensions, number of packages, and destination zip code.

That information then automatically appears in your ERP system. This lets you process any shipment using any licensed carrier from the same screen—ensuring you never have to leave your ERP solution to initiate a shipment. By auto-populating all the necessary information, you can also eliminate manual errors associated with copying the data from the carrier to the ERP system. Quick Ship then prints the carrier label and any additional paperwork required for the shipment.

Quick Ship offers rate shopping at time of quote, order or shipment to keep shipping costs low for your customers and to drive new loyalty for your business. Closing the loop, the calculated freight automatically flows back to Epicor for automated invoicing of freight charges.

Designed with multi-level functionality, these powerful tools can address the needs of multi-company, multi-division, multi-currency, multi-warehouse, and multi-factory operations. Everything from shipping and receiving to accounting and lot control can be optimized using an ERP solution focused on process manufacturing.

You can be operating at one site or with locations scattered across the globe, ERP solutions are designed to address the essential needs of business structures big and small. Let’s touch on a few key points unique to the food and beverage industry and how ERP brings relief from their burdens.

Recipe-Based Formulation

While your employees on the shop floor and executives in the boardroom may know the difference between formulation and bill of materials, your ERP solution should know the finer points just as well. Your products can’t be disassembled like discrete manufacturers’ can, and so you’ve got to get it right with every batch. Not only this, but you’ve got to have the raw materials on hand to deliver each order’s specifications.

The easiest way to keep everything running smoothly is to keep your stock at the ready with an ERP solution designed with you and your industry in mind. ERP formulation management capabilities include essential tools, like tracking recipe revisions, processing notes that allow for commenting, and attention sections at every step in the production process with each instance unique to its batch ticket or work order. Not only this, but everyone is on the same page when it comes to historical information, revisions, and amendments to your recipes.

Quality Control

One of the biggest issues facing food and beverage manufacturers is consistency. Delivering your product according to consumer expectations is essential in maintaining your signature taste, experience, and brand. An exceptional ERP solution that addresses quality control for your industry is the only one that will do.

Quality Control Is Made Easy With ERP Solutions Specifically Tailored To Address The Needs Of Food And Beverage Manufacturing Operations.

Keeping a reliable supply of your in-brand ingredients ensures that the quality and stores of bulk products and finished products will be addressed with a quality ERP solution, as well. Beyond the QC of product characteristics, maintaining reliable expiration on every batch you produce is essential and nothing makes it easier to deliver a consistent lifespan of your products than an ERP dedicated to consistent quality control.

Lot Traceability

When it comes to where your products are going once they’ve left processing facilities, there’s really no room for error. This is where ERP solutions can be instrumental in catching poor packaging or disreputable shippers early in the supply chain along as well as assist in circumventing many of the common problems in the industry.
