Today, most Indian companies have come to terms with the perpetual growth of digital technology and are keen on making it a part of their evolving business strategies. Organizations are digitizing their transactions in an attempt to focus on achieving operational efficiencies, cost control, and revenue growth. The adoption of cloud based software is playing a crucial role in pushing India towards a more transformative digital nation. According to 'Survey Analysis: Adoption of Cloud ERP, 2013 through 2023' by Gartner, cloud-based manufacturing and distribution software will increase from 22 percent in 2013 to 45 percent by 2023. Gartner predicts that most of this growth will be driven by the adoption of hybrid Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems.

Adopting ERP solutions is no longer an option, but a core business essential for manufacturers. No matter how big or small, or public or private, all manufacturers strive to optimize their operations. A complete ERP solution standardizes, streamlines and integrates business processes across various departments like finance, human resources, procurement, distribution, payroll, expense management, and many more. However, changing times and maturing industries have led to changing demands of manufacturers. Manufacturing companies are looking for standalone solutions which can solve a number of challenges and provide invaluable benefits to those seeking to gain a competitive advantage. Acknowledging the pressing concerns of Indian manufacturers, Epicor Software, a global provider of industry-specific business software has established its presence in the Indian market to offer its ERP suite of products to help manufacturers grow, innovate, and compete in today's ever-changing global landscape.
