Mattec MES

Anyone using Mattec MES and sending data back and forth to Epicor? Epicor is calling it the advanced MES and dont want to wast time setting up Epicor MES if we can do more through Mattec which we do have and are in the process of setting up.

We looked at Advanced MES. It did what we wanted from the machine tracking side, but it was not cloud based and the interface back to Epicor was setup for a schedule. They recommend every 15 minutes.

I asked them why they did not do a straight write back into Epicor for each quantity reported. No answer. This schedule delay was a big deal for us. We are make to stock and have Job Receipt to Inventory automated, not sure how you are supposed have real time FG inventory with that type of schedule setup. We would always have to check this for any FG on hand question.
