Epicor Adds SecturaFAB to Benefit Fabricated Metals and Industrial Machinery Users
We know Epicor Kinetic is the go-to ERP software for manufacturers. Last month, Epicor added a solution to its arsenal to help the operations of its users in the metal fabrication field. In September, Epicor announced a partnership with SecturaSOFT, a company dedicated to developing web-based applications for the metal fabrication industry. For over 1,600 Epicor customers in the fabricated metals and industrial machinery markets worldwide, the partnership will deliver SecturaFAB – an estimating and quoting tool for manufacturers – as a direct integration, creating a one-stop shop for existing and prospective Kinetic clients.
According to Epicor, this automated estimating and quoting process allows operations managers to streamline multiple processes to increase shop throughput and speed to quote with the ability to import PDF, 3-D and 2-D CAD files, build quotes in seconds versus days, decrease training time by 80 percent, and increase win rate by up to 40 percent.
Some of the features of SecturaFAB include:
- Nesting estimation – nesting logic for building quotes in seconds
- Work order integration – utilize previously stored geometry to make a quote into a work order
- 5-axis machining – custom tooling setup for complex machining quotes
- Kinetic material integration – pulls in materials data straight from Kinetic
According to Epicor, the introduction of SecturaFAB is an incremental step in deepening the industry-focused capabilities for customers in fabricated metals. Last year, Epicor launched Advanced Unit of Measure capabilities targeted at metals businesses to offer easier management and traceability of dimensional inventories. The SecturaFAB offering is planned to be available in Epicor’s full release of Kinetic.
