Albatros Aluminium Implements Epicor in Less Than Three Weeks

Functionality and Flexibility of Epicor iScala ERP were Key Factors in Selection

DUBLIN, Calif. and WARSAW, Poland, May 16, 2012 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Albatros Aluminium, a manufacturer of aluminium profiles, has implemented a preconfigured version of Epicor® iScala® enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution in less than three weeks. The Epicor system encompasses all major business areas such as production, planning, logistics (including supply chain management), distribution, and finance.

“The key factors in choosing Epicor were the system’s functionality and flexibility,” said Lukasz Kalenik, logistics director for Albatros Aluminium. “We want the system to keep pace with the development of our company and we are confident that this will happen. As a next step for our project we consider the possibility of migrating to the Epicor next-generation ERP solution. This should be an easy and quick process in our current situation. Our decision was influenced by the favorable proportion between the total costs for system implementation and maintenance compared to its quality and capabilities. We also took into account the fact that Epicor solutions have already proved effective in similar companies. Our managers and employees have had very good experiences with these systems in their previous jobs, i.e. in companies operating in the aluminum industry and the electrical engineering sector.”

Currently, Albatros Aluminium uses the full ERP functionality. The implementation of the system took less than three weeks. Two consultants from L-Systems, a local Epicor partner, were responsible for the success of the project. In 2010, L-Systems developed a preconfigured version of the Epicor iScala solution. The preconfigured ERP system is not limited in functionality, though it can be deployed quickly and easily, enabling a company to shorten the implementation process to a matter of weeks, significantly reducing its cost.

Albatros noticed many benefits in the finance area. The system’s analysis tools allow Albatros to compare different types of products that customers have bought and how prices have changed over time. With this information they can forecast demand for products and make optimal business decisions.

“We believe that our integrated ERP solutions help such an innovative and rapidly expanding company as Albatros Aluminium to operate more effectively and achieve their business goals,” said Robert Sinfield, product marketing manager for Epicor.
