Hong Kong: Global enterprise software provider Epicor has introduced Epicor Automation Studio, an integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS).
The new Epicor Automation Studio has been embedded within Epicor Kinetic and Epicor Prophet 21 – the distribution management software. It empowers citizen integrators to effortlessly connect data and automate workflows both within their Epicor solutions as well as with more than 1,000 applications and databases.
With organisations modernising their IT infrastructure and systems they face challenges of connecting siloed systems, applications, and data sources. And this impacts the delivery of accurate, highly available information to users across the organisation, as well as automatically taking action on business events and triggers.
The new iPaaS solution, powered by Workato, addresses these challenges head-on, offering a low code integration and synchronization tool.
The tool makes it easy for Epicor users to connect their data across applications and create automated workflows, all directly from their native Epicor environments, and in collaboration with IT for governance.
“Epicor Automation Studio puts the power of intelligent integration and workflow automation in the hands of our users,” said Kerrie Jordan, VP – Data Platforms, Epicor.
“With low code, visually intuitive capabilities embedded directly within their Epicor platform, Epicor customers can get the most value out of their entire technology stack, eliminate the headache of maintaining complex systems, and shift costs to areas that will help them strategically grow their business,” added Jordan.
The new solution provides self-service access to a marketplace of connectors and tools, including more than 400,000 published “recipes” – or pre-built workflow automation – giving users a head start to adapt and develop their own Epicor automation and integrations across CRM, Sales, Finance, Production, Marketing, HR, IT, and other applications.
The integrations and workflow automation that users can create with Epicor Automation Studio are virtually limitless across every company department. For example:
● Sales can benefit from automatically producing orders in their Epicor platform from an opportunity created in Salesforce.com.
● Finance and Accounting can ensure greater accuracy by automating monthly exchange rate adjustments in their Epicor platform.
● HR can gain efficiencies from automatically uploading workforce data from their Epicor platform to ADP.
Epicor Automation Studio is part of the company’s full complement of integration technologies.
