Epicor Offers New Mobile Business Solution for Distributors

DUBLIN, Calif – Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, announces the availability of Epicor® Mobile Business Analyzer, a new mobile business solution to support executive-level decision making for wholesale distributors.

Built on top of Epicor Business Analyzer and designed exclusively for the Apple® iPad®, Epicor Mobile Business Analyzer is a business intelligence application that provides the critical information that executives and other decision makers require – available anytime, anywhere. With this app, distributors can access key business metrics and proactive alerts from their Epicor Prophet 21 wholesale distribution enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in a single, near real-time mobile dashboard, across a secure network connection.

Mobile Business Analyzer summarizes a distribution organization’s key performance indicators in a clean, crisp display. 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 Analyzer 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 Analyzer 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 Analyzer, 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 Analyzer is available as a free download from the Apple App Store. Epicor Business Analyzer and an iPad are required to run the app. Mobile Business Analyzer will be on display at Epicor Insights 2013, the largest global customer conference in the company’s history, taking place at the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, Tennessee, from May 13-16.
