The Epicor ERP is to be rolled out within its wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary, Veit Zhejiang Co. Ltd.
“As a world leading manufacturer of garment equipment, Veit believes in the power of technology to enhance operational efficiency, increase competitiveness, and stimulate profitable business growth,” explains Klaus Pflugbeil, General Manager, Veit Zhejiang Co. Ltd.
“Epicor has good industry insight as well as relevant customer successes in industrial machinery and equipment manufacturing. The solution’s flexibility, ease-of-use and multi-language features match the needs of small and medium-sized manufacturers like us who are looking for efficiency improvements. We are confident that the implementation of Epicor ERP will support our planned growth.”
Multi-lingual ERP a key requirement
Veit Zhejiang recently started looking for a global ERP solution with multi-language and industry-specific capabilities to support its mid-size Chinese operations. The solution had to provide access to the same information for German and Chinese staff to support the company’s plans to improve management efficiency.
The company plans to eventually improve material request and procurement, purchase order production and delivery, inventory management and turnover, office process standardisation and mobility. The overall goal being to improve decision accuracy and feasibility, as well as competitiveness and profitability.
Its Chinese subsidiary was founded in 2011 to manage the production and assembly of all kinds of ironing tables, irons, small steam generators and shirt folding tables under the Veit brand.
Vincent Tang, regional vice president for Asia at Epicor Software, added, “We are proud to be partnering with Veit Zhejiang to support its business growth. Industrial machinery is one of our key global focus sectors. We understand customers’ demands for higher quality, lower costs, and faster delivery, as well as the complex challenges faced by global enterprises such as economic and market fluctuations.”
What does this mean
While the announcement focuses on Veit Zhejiang, it does state: “The solution had to provide access to the same information for German and Chinese staff in order to support the company’s plans to improve management efficiency.“
There is no evidence that Veit Group is already an Epicor customer. It could be that this is a deal for the entire company. Either way, this is yet another customer win for Epicor this year as it steps up its sales.
