Paper company is virtually paperless
Mohawk purchased Epicor ECM [formerly called DocStar] in 2006. Its ease of installation and ease of use are big factors in our decision and plus, the price was right. And it is a product that does exactly what they need it to do—and then some.
Initially, the product was only employed in the accounting and financial services sector of Mohawk’s organization. Today, every shop, every office, and every department uses Epicor ECM.
Epicor is a product that has allowed Mohawk, a paper company, to go paperless! The system’s flexibility and more importantly, its ease of use helped drive growth across the organization. There’s virtually no training involved; turn it on and start working – anyone can figure out how to use it.
With Epicor, geography doesn’t separate Mohawk’s remote offices like it used to. Everyone can look at things in the system—whether they’re at a distribution center or at a facility in Ohio or in another department in their main office—and they can do it in an extremely efficient manner.
