Managing labour requirements across project locations posed significant challenges. The dynamic nature of projects and varying geographical locations introduces complexities in planning. With inventory spread across different sites and projects, attaining real-time visibility becomes increasingly complex.
Despite careful estimation and planning, projects encounter resource fluctuations and unforeseen circumstances that significantly impact the actual project cost against the estimate. Unplanned project cost overruns had actual expenses during the project execution surpass the initial budgetary estimates, resulting in increased odds of financial strain and resource allocation challenges.
Business operations experienced complexities associated with managing the planning and handling aspects of raw materials. The lack of an integrated view of finance across the organization hindered effective financial management and consequently, decision-making. The limitation in integrating multiple third-party applications impacted operational efficiency and seamless data flow in the digital infrastructure.
By implementing a standardised ERP solution, organisations achieve a comprehensive and consistent understanding of their business operations, regardless of location. Additionally, such a solution helps minimise expenses related to support and maintenance while enabling businesses to identify specific measures to enhance operational efficiency.
Implementing Epicor10 with various modules including Projects, Production, Quality Assurance, Financial, Inventory, Purchasing, Sales, and Payroll, has brought significant advantages by ensuring a structured implementation adhering to all statutory requirements.
An integrated view of all third-party managed operations, enabled seamless coordination between estimation, procurement and project execution through the ERP system. Material requests were validated based on specifications and cost, ensuring accuracy and efficiency. Time and attendance integrated and served payroll and project costing purposes. Additionally, automating material codification with 8 different attributes streamlined the process.
The budget definition was based on estimates and included variance analysis, facilitating effective financial planning. Finally, the implementation consolidated planning for all departments, from design (engineering) to execution, ushering in a holistic approach to project management.
