Creating the Perfect Enterprise System: Bringing Epicor and Bezlio Together

Mickey Truck Bodies (Mickey) manufactures all-aluminum beverage bodies and beverage trailers, dry freight, and refrigerated van bodies, emergency vehicles and specially engineered equipment for customers throughout the U.S. and more than 50 other countries.  The company operates a national network of full-service Reconditioning/Service Centers and a complete Parts Shop with genuine Mickey Parts as well as parts for most competitive makes and models.

With 6 facilities and over 300 manufacturing employees, the sheer cost of licensing and hardware, as well as the volume of transactions recorded on the shop floor, presented a challenge for Mickey, but Encompass had the perfect solution to enhance their Epicor system: SaberLogic’s Bezlio!   Bezlio offers a flexible interface to Epicor using Bezls that provide the ability to add key features without significant expense.  In addition, they are able to use the Bezls from anywhere in their shop, even where WiFi may be spotty.
