Epicor woos execs with iPad app

The company is offering a mobile KPI analysis app to wholesale and distribution managers on the go...

The business software vendor, which offers solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organisations, has announced the availability of ‘Epicor Mobile Business Analyser’, a new iPad app to support executive-level decision making for wholesale distributors.

Built on top of Epicor Business Analyser and designed exclusively for the iPad, the tool is a business intelligence application which provides information that executives and other decision makers require. With the app, distributors can access key business metrics and proactive alerts from their (Epicor) ERP system in a single, near real-time mobile dashboard, across a secure network connection.

Mobile Business Analyser summarises a distribution organisation’s key performance indicators clearly. For example, the top 25 customers by revenue are shown, along with indications if their business with the distributor is trending up or down at any time. In addition, Mobile Business Analyser provides dashboard views of sales and order trends over the past 12 months, including average invoice value, average order value, cost of goods sold, booked dollars, profit dollars, sales dollars and profit percent.

The dimensions of charts and graphs on the Mobile Business Analyser screen can be changed with the touch of a finger, to easily view data by companies, customers, locations, product groups, sales reps, and suppliers. Users can also compare business performance between two recent points in time.

“Immediate access to business intelligence is becoming the true competitive weapon of distributors,” said Malcolm Fox, vice president, product marketing for Epicor. “With Mobile Business Analyser, distribution executives are no longer tied to the office for their business intelligence needs. They can have constant visibility into business trends that impact their decision making.”

Mobile Business Analyser is available as a free download from the Apple app Store. Epicor Business Analyser and an iPad are required to run the app.
