ML100 Winner Achieves Accolades for Collaborative Manufacturing Business Model
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in ERP software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today commends customer Walton Signage for winning in the “Information Technology” category of the 2013 Manufacturing Leadership 100 (ML100) Awards. In coordination with the 2013 Manufacturing Leadership Summit, the ML100 recipients will be recognized during the ceremony at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Fla. on May 15.
With over 30 years of experience, Texas-based Walton Signage delivers superior quality service and performance through installed signage systems across a wide variety of markets. The company services clients including Crate & Barrel, Gap, Inc., Firestone, Old Navy, Nike, Toys ‘R Us, Bank of America, T-Mobile and Travel Centers of America.
Walton needed a reliable and affordable way to automate and calculate sales tax and enhance the way in which orders and jobs are tracked. The solution was the next-generation Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to ensure accuracy and reliability to eliminate labor intensive and error prone manual efforts. The seamless integration of Epicor Tax Connect allowed the ability to manage tax audits easier and reduce costs of business. Additionally with the updateable dashboards, this provides a single point of entry and tracking for most of the project data to efficiently manage time.
“This year’s ML100 winners demonstrate to the world the vast amount of innovation that is taking place in manufacturing,” said David R. Brousell, Global Vice President and Editorial Director at Manufacturing Executive. “Whether it is in how manufacturers create more adaptive organizations, re-tool their cultures for greater collaboration, leverage advanced technologies such as cloud computing, or achieve higher productivity through greater operational efficiencies, the ML100 class of 2013 represents the best in manufacturing.”
The Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards, now in their ninth year, honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. The ML100 Awards program recognizes manufacturing companies and individual executives from around the world who have achieved distinction in a competition that spans 11 award categories, including innovation, information leadership, global value chain management, workforce development, and industry leadership. An independent blue-ribbon panel of leading manufacturing researchers, analysts, academics, and executives, including past award winners, evaluates and judges all nominations.
“Epicor congratulates Walton Signage for their accomplishments and recognition as industry innovators,” said Malcolm Fox, vice president, product marketing at Epicor. “We are proud that our ERP solution delivers agility and collaboration in support of application-to-application integration to inspire Walton to lead the way in American manufacturing.”
