Business software solutions company Epicor has announced that PureMalt has chosen the Epicor Tropos ERP solution to streamline its processes and allow better transparency of data.
PureMalt develops various refined malt extrants which are used extensively in the food and drink industry, and has expanded over the past 40 years from flour milling to specialised production of malt extracts that are exported to over 60 countries.
The company has grown to the point where it needs an ERP solution which can manage all operational processes in one streamlined system. PureMalt previously used various outdated software applications, including Access database platforms and Excel spreadsheets, and this had remained unchanged since the mid-1990s.
Ross Turner, Business Systems Manager at PureMalt said: “We had grown to a size that we saw as a critical mass for future growth, but we didn’t have a major supporting system in place for the business. We needed an ERP system that could provide us with accurate real-time business data because we wanted to have better visibility of the business performance as well as streamline and improve the different processes.”
What set Tropos apart was the fact that it is a software platform that is clearly born out of a production and manufacturing focus, whereas some of its competitors’ products seem to have grown out of a finance-focused package. The manufacturing focus is key to supporting the growth of our business and how we compete with our counterparts,” turner added.
Epicor Tropos is a process manufacturing solution that provides unrivalled recipe-based production, materials traceability, and regulatory compliance for UK process manufacturers. It offers organisations the power to improve decision making, strengthen internal and external connections, deliver on shorter production and supply schedules, and gain business efficiency and cost savings.
