21 Mar L.W. Schneider Goes Live on Epicor 10.1 with EpiCenter
EpiCenter Team Ensures Successful Implementation
Westfield, MA, March 21, 2017 – EpiCenter, a leading authorized partner of Epicor software that blends its manufacturing history with Epicor expertise to empower clients, announced the go live of L.W. Schneider, Inc. on Epicor 10.1. Providing contract manufacturing and superior parts for industries that demand quality, precision and dependability, L.W. Schneider’s clients include some of the world’s most respected firearms manufacturers.
EpiCenter assisted L.W. Schneider in understanding and navigating the significant differences between Vista 6 and Epicor 10, including making a new setup of their accounting, scheduling, and other internal office procedures.
“L.W. Schneider has grown significantly (from 70 to over 400 employees) in the last 10 years, and Vantage 6.1 has greatly matured and become a world-class ERP solution during the same period,” said Jeffrey Glaze, President of EpiCenter. Glaze personally worked with the team at L.W. Schneider by performing a strategic process review, which compares the current and future states of the company and the system, and becomes a written plan for the success of the project. EpiCenter then sent in a team of consultants to perform delta training and assist in all of the new system setups required for Epicor 10.
For more than 40 years, L.W. Schneider’s family-owned and operated business has kept its old fashioned, hands-on approach to engineering precision-manufactured gun parts, and they appreciated that EpiCenter was “hands on” as well. “Each consultant had a different niche and different teaching style,” says Theresa Quezada, L.W. Schneider COO. “That level of support is needed for a transition of this size. I would not recommend going through an upgrade alone.”
