Epicor Eclipse is a Distribution ERP software package, designed by distribution experts and aimed at wholesalers in the Electrical, HVAC, Plumbing, and PVF industries.

Eclipse Software by Epicor encompasses all aspects of your business including sales order entry as all the back-office standard accounting functions which tell you when to buy, and how much to buy to meet sales and distribution needs.

Eclipse features a non-obtrusive user interface that works the way people do by following the workflows employed by your staff. Another advantage of using Eclipse is that it has ready interfaces with other applications in the large Epicor business software suite, such as Proof of Delivery, Strategic Pricing, and Service Dispatch.

Good interfaces with other applications are extremely important for long term ease of use.

Some of the highlights of the Eclipse system include:

  • A powerful search function across all modules of the software
  • Distributive multiple capabilities across companies, locations and currencies
  • Sophisticated purchasing and inventory management modules and functions to keep inventories from going into overload
  • Secure Permissions checks based on assigned roles and positions
  • Maintenance of complete audit trails (SOX compliant).
  • Real-time transaction processing
  • Accurate and efficient warehouse management functions.
  • Integrated multi-carrier shipping module for many standard companies, such as UPS, FedEx, USPS, AirBorne, SpeeDee, and others.

The following applications and functions are designed to work together within Eclipse:

  • Accounting and Financial Management
  • Business Intelligence
  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Eclipse Business Connect
  • Inventory Management
  • Pricing Management
  • Purchasing and Transfers
  • Sales Order Management
  • Warehouse Logistics

A great plus of Eclipse Software by Epicor is that changes in one function will automatically cascade through and update the system. For example when inventory is received in the warehouse, accounts-payable, and on-hand inventory is updated. These updates trigger notices about customer orders to be filled, and deliveries to be scheduled.

Functions such as EDI, Web Order entry and many other services make Eclipse a state- of-the-art system that helps eliminate redundancies in processing since everyone involved in a process sees where things stand in realtime.
