Case Study

Optimizing an Epicor Prophet 21 system for rapid ROI

  • Automated backup to cloud 
  • Automated month-end procedures and reporting 
  • Implement database best practices 
  • Screen improvements in OE and PO Generation 

We improved the user interface, making it faster and easier to enter sales orders and generate purchase orders. Additionally, we increased visibility around inbound freight costs during order entry and invoicing.

Beginning in January 2018, the team at Atlas Precision Consulting had the privilege of working with an Ohio-based electrical distributor to help streamline aspects of their business operations.  The distributor had deployed Epicor Prophet 21 approximately 3 years prior and was looking for some outside support to tune up the system and try to make things a little bit simpler.

Within 30 days, the Atlas team resolved of the distributor’s key issues.

We are very proud & excited to have delivered the exact desired solutions to the customer in a time frame that allowed them to get a quick return on their investment in our services. 

Project Details

Key issues we resolved:

  • Screen layout improvements in Order Entry and PO Requirements Generation to improve efficiency and ease of use
  • Patching of the SQL server to latest version.
  • A review of the Prophet 21 ERP database and SQL instance settings to drive database performance.
  • Implemented regular database maintenance & backup based on best practices.
  • Automated copying of Prophet 21 ERP database and log backups to cloud storage.
  • Screen layout changes for Convert PO to Voucher to support the AP process.
  • Fully automated month-end procedures.
  • Fully automated month-end reporting.
  • Custom reporting and screen layouts to increase visibility of inbound freight costs

From the beginning of the project, Andy formed a direct plan based on our wants and needs with the system.  He delivered on that plan faster than I would have thought and for less money than I was imagining. I would recommend anyone with a P21 system that needs a little tweaking to contact Atlas and spend a little time going over your system. It will help immensely.
