Epicor has been named as Scuderia AlphaTauri’s official ERP Partner. Building on an already successful long-term technology relationship, the multi-year agreement will enable the Formula 1 team to focus on continuous performance improvements both on and off the track.
Epicor is the data management engine at the heart of the Scuderia AlphaTauri’s ability to streamline production, correlate components with telemetry data, and maximise vehicle performance. The Epicor Kinetic industry productivity platform for manufacturers enables the team to centrally manage all processes and data across its operation, optimising every aspect of production, inventory, component testing, and financials with greater speed, accuracy, and organisational visibility.
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, minimising data entry and speeding productivity.
Franz Tost, team principal of Scuderia AlphaTauri, said: “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. Epicor is at the centre 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 going racing with Epicor for many years to come and achieve greater results.”
Paul Stoddart, Epicor CMO, added: “F1 demands a commitment to excellence, something in which the Epicor and Scuderia AlphaTauri teams align. 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.”
The Epicor logo will debut on Scuderia AlphaTauri cars at the upcoming Formula 1 Aramco United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
