“Imarda has faced several business challenges recently as we have been undergoing significant growth for our i360 product. This growth has resulted in increased manufacturing volumes, and complicated BOM’s (Bill of Materials) and increased billing to be produced from an aging ERP system (Epicor® Vantage 8) that is in need of replacement.

Imarda had done an amount of work with PTS in the past and I contacted Jim from PTS in the hope this company could assist. Jim’s team jumped straight in aware of the challenges we faced. I was able to talk to Jim directly several times which provided a huge amount of comfort and even though the time zones were different I never had any issues reaching him or a member of his team. Their straight forward approach was a relief. The team at PTS assisted in arranging meetings, eliciting the answers from iMarda staff with questions backed up

Their straight forward approach was a relief. The team at PTS assisted in arranging meetings, eliciting the answers from iMarda staff with questions backed up from years of experience in Epicor®. This sped up the business improvement process significantly. Their agile methodology was a perfect fit as we needed to jump between issues often very quickly and due to the nature of our remote staff the timing of such meetings was often at short notice. The functional results that were produced as a result of Jim’s team were a key component in keeping the operations process running within Imarda.

On top of this work, Jim’s team also provided excellent support, as our lack of knowledge with Epicor® due to staff churn again left us challenged with internal support options. Jim’s team dealt with questions ranging from the absolute basics to advanced questions easily and with an air of patience that can only be described as completely forgiving!! In short, I would have no hesitation in recommending PTS.”

The team at PTS assisted in arranging meetings in which we discussed complicated business process and procedure requirements. This sped up the improvement process significantly. PTS’ methodology was a perfect fit to quickly and thoroughly address our needs and provide solutions. 

The functional results that were produced as a result of Jim’s team were a key component in keeping operations running. Moreover, their skills for development are extraordinary.

“On a cold winter Wednesday, I joined a metal fabrication conference in the Cleveland area.  We were led to a room covered in brown; the far wall lit up by a projector.  As I unpacked my laptop, trusty notepad and pen, I was approached by a man with a jovial smile.  The feeling that I should know him welled up inside me.  After taking a second glance at my nametag, he said, “we’ve worked together, but we’ve never met face-to-face.”  He went on to tell me how years prior we collaborated on a BPM that defaulted the correct shipping address for purchase orders according to the User-ID on the PO.  “Before you built that, about once a month, these huge semi-loads would arrive at our office building, over 400 miles away from the factory.  It was extremely frustrating, but now we can laugh about it because your BPM has saved us 10’s of thousands of dollars.  It hasn’t happened since.”  He shook my hand and thanked me, as we remembered working together.  Hearing this story made me proud of what I do and where I work.”

Epicor® Crystal Reports Development
Accurate reports that can be customized to your needs are an essential part of budgeting, planning, regulatory compliance and a number of other business processes. One of the biggest benefits of an enterprise resource planning platform such as Epicor® is its robust data gathering capabilities. However, as many small businesses know, getting the platform to work with reporting software such as Crystal Reports can be a challenge.
PracticalTek, LLC is an independent Epicor® consultant that can help you use Epicor® Crystal Reports training to your advantage. We can help you modify and customize reports so you can drill down on the information you need to make smarter decisions.
Epicor® and Crystal Reports
Crystal Reports has the ability to pull data from multiple sources to create cohesive, accurate reports. Getting it to work seamlessly with Epicor® often requires modifying an existing template or creating a new business activity query (BAQ) — both processes which can be time consuming, or which may involve extensive trial and error that many small businesses don’t have the resources for.
That’s where PracticalTek comes in. We have extensive experience generating Crystal Reports with Epicor® and have a large archive of templates that can be modified to meet your needs. Some of the thousands of custom Epicor® reports we’ve created in the past have included:
  • Shipping reports that let you know who bought what, where it was sent and how it got there in a given week, month, quarter or other specified period of time
  • Detailed work-in-progress and jobs-in-progress reports that clearly show what you have ongoing, what’s overdue and which team members are available to take on additional work, among other things
  • Supplier delivery performance reports that identify which of your partners has been most effective at meeting their promises, and which have a history of unreliability
  • Part lead time reports, which make planning easier by showing you what’s in stock and what needs to be sent away for

…and more.

How PracticalTek Can Help
Together, Epicor® and Crystal Reports can be used to provide vital business intelligence for organizations in the manufacturing, warehousing and automotive industries, among others. PracticalTek can provide a number of services that help you maximize the usefulness of these two platforms:
  • Report generation and customization: We have generated thousands of Crystal Reports with both Epicor® 9 and Epicor® 10. If we don’t already have a template that can be easily modified to meet your requirements, we can quickly develop something that’s perfect for your business.
  • Training: We are also happy to provide Epicor® Crystal Reports training for your staff. On-site and remote training options are available — let us give you the tools necessary to make the best use of the systems and programs already at your disposal.
  • Troubleshooting and technical support: Trouble generating a Crystal Report with Epicor® 10 or a related platform? Unsure if the data you’re looking at is accurate? Call PracticalTek for one-on-one assistance from an experienced team member.
PracticalTek has created numerous Crystal Reports® for Epicor®. Below are a few example screenshots taken from the reports we’ve created. We have generated well over a thousand Crystal Reports® so it’s likely our archive has a report similar to what you are looking for.
