Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today The TASI Group has chosen Epicor ERP, deployed in the cloud, to replace multiple disparate systems and reduce redundant business processes, decrease quote-to-cash timeframes, improve the customer experience with advanced customer relationship management (CRM) functionality and greater inventory control, and enable better collaboration among employees across the globe.
Established as a holding company in 1999, The TASI Group is comprised of three business segments with a shared focus on testing, inspection, and measurement; together they engineer and manufacture advanced inspection instrumentation and systems, flowmeters and flow control products, measurement instrumentation, and automated assembly and test systems. Major markets include automotive, medical device, life science, pharmaceutical, packaging, oil and gas, food and beverage, and consumer goods industries. The company has more than 800 employees in 14 locations worldwide.
“We’re in the process of implementing Epicor Cloud ERP at four of our locations, and eventually we plan to have our entire organization on one system,” said David Slater, ERP project manager, The TASI Group. “Our goal is to become a billion dollar company in the next five years, so it’s essential we invest in a state-of-the-art, integrated software solution now. We believe Epicor can help get us there.”
The TASI Group’s leadership team began searching for a new solution in April 2015 and quickly narrowed their choices down to Epicor Cloud ERP and a competing solution. Though they initially believed both vendors offered the features they need to support their aggressive growth goals, they were more impressed with the level of transparency they encountered with Epicor during the selection process. Ultimately, they also preferred the out-of-the-box functionality offered with Epicor Cloud ERP and agreed the Epicor implementation methodology would be a better fit for their organization.
“As part of our selection process, we asked each vendor to let us test-run their solution. Almost immediately, Epicor granted us temporary access to a training application, while the competitor was hesitant to let us peek behind the curtain,” Slater continued. “Eventually we were able to test their system on a limited basis, but Epicor Cloud ERP still felt like a better fit. The system offers the tools we need without excessive customization, and the people we spoke to were knowledgeable and accommodating, which is a key consideration when choosing a long-term business partner.”
“Epicor Cloud ERP offers the industry-specific functionality and flexibility our customers need to support a modern manufacturing environment, and it’s backed by a team of industry experts focused on providing exceptional service,” said Tom Muth, senior product marketing manager, Epicor Software Corporation. “We’re very excited to build a solid partnership with The TASI Group and its subsidiaries and help support the organization’s plans for growth over the next several years. We look forward to playing a part in their continued success.”
