Event Details

Applying Social Enterprise Collaboration in A&D
Guest Presenter:

Kathie Poindexter

Manager, Product Marketing

Epicor Software Corporation


Manufacturing in the Aerospace and Defense (A&D) sector involves the same disciplines and requirements as every other manufacturing segment-plus. Plus the fact that it is nearly always high tech and strongly engineering oriented, customer centric, project driven with rapid change as a given.

A&D manufacturers need all the help they can get, and appropriate use of information technology for improved communication and collaboration can go a long way to help in meeting these challenges. But A&D manufacturers who are at the high end of the technology spectrum for the products they produce have often been slow to adopt new software technologies to better run their business.

Within A&D, social enterprise tools can facilitate many interpersonal functions with business implications including, teaming (e.g. engineering, projects, and proposal preparations), problem solving, collaboration and knowledge transfer. Social enterprise interactions lie at the core of meeting the growing business demands to improve responsiveness and encourage collaboration and innovation throughout the A&D organization.

Why should the Aerospace and Defense Industry implement Enterprise Social Collaboration?
  • It may be already happening in the organization in an informal way
  • It is an ageing industry and knowledge capture is a dire need to address attrition risk
  • To meet the expectations of the millennial generation
  • To support global and distributed workforce engagement
  • To locate and tap expertise in the extended enterprise

The long and short of it is this-social enterprise software should help, not hinder, your efforts.

Epicor markets software products targeted at mid-sized companies. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, it was founded in 1972.

Epicor provides enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM), and human capital management (HCM) software to business customers, in both Software as a Service (SaaS) and OnPremises deployment modalities.
