Have you Upgraded to Epicor Kinetic 2024.1 Yet?


About 2 months ago, Epicor introduced Epicor Kinetic 2024.1, the latest release of its flagship cloud ERP solution. This version is specifically tailored for manufacturers and includes significant enhancements to improve business efficiency and workforce productivity. Notable, Epicor Kinetic 2024.1 emphasizes customer feedback, aligning with the motto “Made with you, for you.”

The Kinetic team utilized the Epicor Ideas portal, a platform where customers submit and vote on enhancement ideas. In the latest release, Epicor incorporated several highly requested features highlighting their commitment to user feedback. When users actively engage with the Epicor ideas portal, they contribute to shaping the future of Kinetic, ensuring it aligns with the evolving needs of the manufacturing industry.

Here are the most notable improvements:

  • Enhanced Time-Phased Inquiry:
    • The updated Time-Phased Inquiry feature now contains more detailed information.
    • Users can update planning parameters and run material requirements planning (MRP) regeneration for individual parts, giving more control over planning flexibility.
  • Return Material Authorizations (RMAs) Creation from Various Sources: Users can streamline the returns process by now creating RMA directly from orders, invoices, or shipment packs.
  • Part Quantity Tracker Dashboard: This new dashboard is designed to provide comprehensive visibility into inventory. It allows users to view data from various sources, such as the part bin table and part lot table.
  • MRP Expiration Date Notifications: Ensuring the use of valid inventory is key to a business. The MRP system will now honor expiration dates on lots and notify customers to replace expired materials.
  • User Experience and Interface Improvements: The browser UX has been the beneficiary of many updates. It now offers a more intuitive and efficient data entry flow with fewer clicks and less scrolling. Epicor aimed to make the top-used screens based on real-world customer usage. Goal was to make the system more user-friendly and effective.
