Boers enjoys a 100-year history of delivering fine mechanical parts, high precision assembly and sheet metal products to customers in the medical appliances, flow-control, automotive and petro-chemical industries. The company implemented Epicor ERP, from the shop floor to finance, to meet the growing customer demand for access to real-time information.

Social ERP Drives User-Centric Business Innovation
According to a recent report by Forrester Research, Inc., "Both customers and employees now expect that information, services, and social media will be available to them -- in context -- on any device, at their time of need. And business leaders are taking note: Today, 77% of business decision-makers believe that creating a comprehensive mobile and tablet strategy for customers and partners is a moderate, high, or critical priority for their company."(1)

Epicor ERP version 10 embodies the evolution to a fully social-ized system of engagement, as Epicor Social Enterprise delivers an extensive collaboration and personalization environment. Consumer-grade search anywhere capabilities, enables users to do cross-company searches, drill down into live information, call and return data from any application in context, all from their own view into the ERP system. Epicor Social Enterprise users are able to effectively and efficiently handle information overload through activity stream management, following application data or people alerts on an ad-hoc basis.
