Epicor Implementation Manager The Role

12-month contract.  Strictly No Agencies

You will be responsible for the successful implementation of Epicor ERP (Kinetic) at Dynamic Aerospace Fabrications, leading and assisting in the transition from Epicor Avante and other legacy systems.

You will involve employees at an early stage to ensure the necessary commitment, culture and motivation is established to engage in the process of change.  You will chair a small multifunctional project team to determine minimum critical success criteria and involve them in determining the detail system design.

Using your knowledge and experience, your role will involve assessing the project requirements and mapping those requirements to the capabilities of Epicor.  Functionality gaps currently filled by the capabilities of existing legacy systems are to be critically assessed and a plan created for resolving them, making use of in-house expertise or budgeting for third party consultancy if required.

You will lead a program of testing and piloting, ensuring that all conceivable scenarios are trialled and procedures of work clearly defined.  The project team should be fully involved and be responsible for obtaining sign-off on the critical success criteria before go-live implementation.  You will be responsible for coordinating the training of end users.  Go-live implementation will need to be managed carefully to minimise disruption to the business.

Post implementation, you will identify and prioritise areas for improvements.
