Perlick has been innovating in the refrigeration and bar dispensing industry for more than 100 years. Starting as a family-owned business, the company has held strong with its reputation for being best-in-class while also staying close to their family-owned roots. As Perlick continued to grow, they recognized they needed to implement Epicor ERP in the beginning of 2018. However, Perlick’s accounts receivable (AR) department still needed more help and automation to manage their expanding cash flow of 1,300 active accounts.

What A Medical Device Manufacturing ERP Can Do For You
