Vista8 from Epicor has its focus on Estimating, Job Control and Scheduling. In order to do this properly, Vista8’s processing of customer orders and purchase orders is second to none, and these modules feed into Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable. The resulting control of inventory provides the user with great confidence. However, the Estimating modules allows accurate one-off quotes to be quickly prepared on the basis of the material, labour, machine time, and sub-contract activity required; a selling price per quantity break suggested. A Product Configurator can make this estimating process very simple.
Control of jobs is of paramount importance, and the visual scheduling of activities provides a clear picture of the demands on capacity and resources. For those companies which make items that require service, there is a Field Service module, and for those managing long-term customer contracts the MRP module is of use.
