About Kinetic

Kinetic offers flexible, industry-specific enterprise resource planning solutions that are designed around the specific needs of manufacturing customers. The solutions leverage new technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), social collaboration, big data and analytics, 3D design automation, and mobility for a combination of rich global functionality built on agile technology.

Kinetic capabilities include a CRM for managing customer and partner data, invoices, quotes, orders, multi-level pricing contracts, and more. Tools for performance management provide visibility into the business, allowing users to plan, execute, and analyze at both strategic and tactical levels using business intelligence (BI) data. Users can securely capture, store, manage, and access content and documents at any time, via any device, using Epicor’s content management system (DocStar), empowering interdepartmental collaboration.

Organizations are able to manage and streamline financial operations and gain insights into performance, expense, and risk through tools and controls to support complex legislative requirements. Features for planning and scheduling provide day-to-day control and long-range planning, helping to manage supply and demand in real-time with resource optimization, availability, change management, and more. Epicor’s tools for manufacturing and production provide a full range of supply chain management, execution, and distribution capabilities.

Kinetic helps organizations plan and execute simple or complex, multi-level projects with strict costing and billing through features for project planning, time and expense management, billing and revenue, and resource management. Users are able to maximize service effectiveness by coordinating service center processes and managing each aspect of the supply chain from forecasting to fulfillment. Kinetic also includes human capital management from onboarding, to talent management.

    Overall my experience with Epicor is very positive. I like the way that I can modify just about everything in order to adjust to my work flow and to solve problems. The support is standard large company support, the first call you make will be to tier one and unless it is simple it will get escalated.

    Pros

    The software is very robust. Just about everything that the software does is configurable and modifiable. The interface is fairly customizable, you can move things around and even change the color scheme to your liking.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say I dislike this, but do take into consideration that the customization of the software requires a significant amount of programming skill. This software is not targeted at smaller companies that wouldn't have an IT staff or are not willing to spend money on outside programmers.

    Response from Epicor Software

    Thank you for taking the time to post a review, Michael. We appreciate the feedback you have provided on customization. At Epicor, we are committed to providing an ease of use experience. Thank you.

    Product stability has greatly improved in recent releases, support is often missing in action

    Pros

    ITs flexibility and ability to customize. Cloud versions available. Offers many modules for most needs. There has been in the past several years a building of third party software vendors with the ability to augment the customization, implementation and general maintenance of the software requiring less reliance on Epicor consulting services. Features such as document routing has greatly improved forms handling. The software is definitely in growth mode resulting in new features and abilities. The number one feature I like is the ability to export any report and most data grids directly to excel. Overall I have more likes on were the software is going rather than were it is at today

    Cons

    The software is not at all user friendly. Little if any documentation on how to use the product. Education is available but pricey. Support system is totally ineffectual and support personal are lacking in basic knowledge. Company has built many silos and employees do not have the ability to see across those barriers. The online support system called Epicare has added a layer of difficulty in that you cannot speak with an employee to explain an issue. The online submission is often limited to drop down selections that have nothing to do with the problem. The helpful tips you are given when submitting a case are almost always way off topic and of no use.

    MRP functionality for our business. Better business tools . Improved processes. Increased communication because of shared information system provides.

    Pros

    It is user friendly , and has good basic functionality . Structure of menu modules make sense and makes it easy to move in and out of different screens. Information at your reach with a key stroke. easy to download to excel for more customized usage.

    Cons

    Some functionality which I feel is a basic process is complicated for the user . Some fields should default information instead of user having to key in. Needs more flexibility . Biggest issue is when a new version comes out.....something that was working before is no longer working. And its not a customization its core functionality.
