EstesGroup – An ERP Consulting Services Provider for Epicor Products
If your organization is in the process of selecting an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, it’s imperative to customize and implement it based on your company’s specific needs. It’s advantageous to work with experienced professionals throughout this process so that you avoid an ERP failure that could potentially be catastrophic to your ability to function as a company. Fortunately, EstesGroup is here to help. EstesGroup is an ERP service provider for both Prophet 21 and Epicor ERP (products developed by Epicor). Our ERP implementation team consists of veterans within the industry who time and time again prove that a successful ERP implementation is not as impossible as it may seem. We are here to alleviate those internal stresses and contribute to your bottom-line in a monumental way.
The first step in our ERP consulting services involves an in-depth Epicor Process Review to better understand your business and its needs. The Epicor Process Review is very similar to a traditional Business Process Review, yet it’s specifically geared towards assessing the functionality of your business and how your processes can be streamlined through an Epicor product like Epicor ERP. At EstesGroup, we do not take this step lightly; we are as thorough as possible to ensure that the ERP services and solution we recommend is the best fit for your business. Epicor’s products possess capabilities that are unparalleled in the realm of ERP software, and through a customized demo from our specialists, you will be able to discover for yourself if an Epicor product is the right solution for your business model.
Another consulting service we provide is in-depth training of faculty who will interface with the ERP system so that everyone is up to speed well before the rollout, enabling the adoption of the new system in the cleanest manner possible. In our experience, we’ve found that most resistance to change primarily stems from not fully understanding the system, and we are certainly here to help that transition happen as seamlessly as possible for your business.
Every implementation of Epicor ERP is unique because each business has its own unique needs. Fortunately, your Epicor ERP system can be customized to provide a wonderful user experience that will set your team up to excel in their functional roles. Epicor ERP applications can be configured in a number of ways depending on the tools your employees currently use and feel the most comfortable with. Our customization services include:
- SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) – Create custom database reports to provide the information you need without having to sift and compile reams of data,
- Custom Management Dashboards – Analyze KPI’s anytime that update in real-time so that you are constantly aware of important metrics, and the ability to dig into that data for deeper insights
- Service Connect – Create custom processes to pull information, make changes, and trigger updates based on the unique needs of your company.
In order to run Epicor ERP for your business, you’ll need a dedicated server. If you intend to host the system on-premise, we’d be happy to help you with the process of setting that up. If you’re looking for an Epicor ERP cloud hosting solution (in the event that you need to comply with certain regulations or prefer having a decentralized backup system in-place), EstesGroup can help with that as well. If neither of those sounds like the right solution for your business, EstesGroup can host your system on our secure remote servers instead. If you do choose to have EstesGroup host your system, you will still maintain full ownership of the software and licensing; we essentially rent out that server space to you for the duration of the mutually agreed upon contract.
We provide our ERP services for:
- Those looking to implement their first ever ERP for their enterprise
- Those who are looking to upgrade from previous versions/products of Epicor
- Companies that intend to migrate from their current ERP over to Epicor ERP (ask our team about the benefits of doing so)
- Re-implementation (for those who experienced an unsuccessful rollout)
- Organizations that are experiencing implementation stagnation or various problems with the current rollout.
Our Epicor ERP Modules
If you require integrations to third-party tools (i.e. for credit card processing, CAD capabilities, etc.), we are able to help with the configuration of those technologies to communicate with Epicor ERP. With the wide variety of functionalities that third-party tools provide, integration capabilities are becoming very necessary to compete with the rest of your industry. Fortunately, Epicor ERP contains a multitude of modules that will help with your needs without complex integrations to various products.
EstesGroup Partners with the Best Third Party Applications to Make Your Business Run Better.
Whether you deploy Epicor ERP On-Premise, SaaS, or Hosted Cloud, these 3rd part product companies will greatly improve targeted areas of your business. EstesGroup is well versed in these applications and how best these will benefit your company.

As previously mentioned, EstesGroup is a certified reseller of Epicor ERP and Prophet 21 and we are experts in how these technologies work. Our consultants have a deep understanding of the entire Epicor suite of products, their features and how an ERP system can be implemented to improve modern businesses. Many businesses don’t realize this, but a certified reseller is often your best option compared to buying directly from the developers because resellers, like EstesGroup, specialize in offering high-quality consultation, implementation, and integration services.
