AUSTIN, TX - Media
OutReach - 21 October 2021 - Epicor, a global leader of industry-specific
enterprise software to
promote business growth, and Scuderia AlphaTauri today announced that Epicor has
been named the Team's Official ERP Partner. The multi-year agreement builds on
an already successful long-term technology relationship and solidifies Epicor
as the powerful driver behind Scuderia AlphaTauri's operations, enabling the
team to focus on continuous performance improvements, both on and off the
"In our data-driven world, there is no offseason. The demand for high
quality data and intelligence across every aspect of our business and racing
operations is paramount." said Franz Tost, Team Principal of Scuderia
AlphaTauri. "Epicor is at the center of everything we do, and this technology
partnership makes perfect sense for us. We're able to quickly deliver the right
information to the right people at the right time, which gives us a competitive
edge. We are looking forward to go racing with Epicor for many years to come
and achieve always greater results."
In a racing environment where success is measured in milliseconds,
real-time performance data and attention to every detail is critical. The
Epicor Kinetic industry productivity platform for manufacturers enables Scuderia AlphaTauri to centrally manage all processes and data across its
operation, optimizing every aspect of the team's production, inventory,
component testing, and financials with greater speed, accuracy and
"F1 demands a commitment to excellence, something in which the Epicor and
Scuderia AlphaTauri teams align," said
Paul Stoddart, Epicor CMO. "Epicor is excited to be an essential partner
enabling the team's constant drive for performance, something we strive every
day to deliver for all of the makers, movers and sellers we serve worldwide."
Just one racing car is made up of more than 14,000
precision components. Many of those parts are custom-made onsite by technical designers
and engineers. Historically, managing production of each unique part,
understanding lifespan, and ensuring the right parts were ready for race day
proved challenging with older, siloed software systems and manual processes.
Today, with Kinetic, Scuderia AlphaTauri can automatically render an entire schematic
structure of its racing cars and every part, all serial-tracked, and store a
snapshot of that structure coded to a specific race. During component production,
Kinetic automates the job creation process for each part, minimizing data entry
and speeding productivity. The team also has granular visibility into which machine, operator, and
tools were used to manufacture each part, helping develop cost-analysis models
that inform make-or-buy decisions, as well as quickly correcting any production
issues before getting to the track.
During testing, Scuderia AlphaTauri overlays all telemetry data collected on
the track from the more than 900 sensors onboard each racing car, providing a
precise and accurate view into individual part
performance, when each part is installed or replaced, and predictive analytics.
The team can also automatically
"unwind" the data to earlier snapshots of the car structure to pinpoint
potential component issues and ensure a problem is not replicated.
Epicor wordmark will debut on the AT02's front wing endplates at the upcoming Grand
Prix in Austin, celebrating the beginning of a long brand and technology
partnership with the ERP innovator.
