Strategic Process Review (SPR)

Recent Review?

Have you had a recent overall review of your current ERP system (Epicor or other)?

Evaluated Options?

Have you evaluated all 'outside' systems, spreadsheets, work instructions, etc., and how they could be integrated into your Epicor system?

Features?

Do you know what the features are of the current Epicor offering and how they might help you?

Future Outlook?

Do you have a 'strategic' document that explains in detail your system initiatives for the next 1, 3, and 5 years, which can be used for budgeting, planning, forecasting, and top management review?

IF YOU ANSWERED “NO” TO ANY OF THE CHALLENGES ABOVE, THE STRATEGIC PROCESS REVIEWSM (SPR) IS FOR YOU.

With EpiCenter’s Strategic Process ReviewSM, you get an advanced internal planning tool that encompasses a 360-degree view of your organization, providing an objective and practical approach to understanding how your business operates. The SPR delivers a roadmap that assists you in an objective evaluation of your current systems and infrastructure, helping you develop a clear vision of what your future business platform should be.

Consider using an SPR if you need to:

  • Support a successful RFP process.
  • Maximize utilization to get the most from your ERP investment.
  • Evaluate current Epicor solutions to ensure they capitalize on the ERP system to its fullest.

At EpiCenter, everything we do is customer-oriented. The SPR is done in one to two days. We begin by working with all stakeholders, from owners and senior management to shop floor personnel; it is a top down, bottom up approach. By examining in detail how your business is run today and how you want it to evolve tomorrow, together, we improve the business process and identify the ways in which your software supports your business goals.

Some things we'll examine include:

  • What or who in your organization can add more value to your business vision?
  • What improvements will better your operation perspective, inventory scheduling, material management, etc.?
  • What products or customers are most profitable, and what is the best area for you to increase profitable revenue?
  • How does your use of the software impact the business and the people in your organization?
  • Which work orders/jobs are profitable and which need improvement?
  • How the organization can maximize efficiency from quote to cash.
  • Identification of best practices vs. current practices.
  • Present state vs.future state (and how to fulfill the organization's long-term business vision).
