Sigma Precision Components Goes Live on Epicor ERP
DUBLIN, Calif. and LONDON, October 3rd, 2013 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, today announced that Sigma Precision Components, an international precision machining and pipe manufacturing supplier to the aerospace, nuclear and energy industries, has gone live on the Epicor next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, replacing its legacy SAP® system.

Acquired in 2012 by Avingtrans PLC, Sigma Components had an immediate need to migrate away from its previous holding company’s group-wide ERP solution with the minimum of disruption to its daily operations. Across Avingtrans a number of different ERP solutions were being used, so it was decided to go out to the market and review the solutions that would offer the smoothest migration and best feature set for Sigma Components’ operations in the UK and China.

“We needed a solution with a rich set of features out-of-the-box covering our end-to-end business processes, and strong integration so that we could connect into our new parent company systems where needed,” said Mark Johnson, managing director at Sigma Components. “We were also looking for a package that gave us the flexibility to implement our own business processes and application customisations where needed, without the need for expensive third part software developments.”

Sigma Components decided that the next-generation Epicor ERP solution offered the best balance of flexibility and out-of-the-box features for all its key operational areas including sales, finance, customer relationship management (CRM), and manufacturing. In addition, the strength of the platform and the Epicor commitment to continually improve its solution provides a basis on which the implementation can potentially be extended to other Avingtrans sites in the future, creating a powerful group-wide ERP solution.

“The Epicor ERP solution beat the competition and we see it as part of our long-term future, helping us to improve efficiency and customer service within the business,” added Johnson. “Its flexibility means that as we grow and adapt to the changing business environment we will be able to quickly reflect the changes in the business in Epicor, and indeed use Epicor to help us make those decisions with the insight we will have across the business.”

Dot Net IT, a member of the Epicor Inspired Partner Network, worked with Sigma Components to design and provide the hardware platform to support the Epicor ERP implementation.

“Changing an ERP solution is a challenging project at any time, but no more so than during an acquisition or merger,” said Steve Winder, vice president, manufacturing for Epicor UK. So many changes are taking place, and a business can’t afford to let any balls drop. At Epicor, we have placed a huge amount of effort and over 40 years experience in to ensuring that our products are feature rich out-of-the-box, flexible to a companies business needs, and easy to integrate. That is why time and time again we are selected over our competitors to inspire medium-size businesses to achieve their goals.”
