DALLAS—Carillon® ERP, a top 10 Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Solution as ranked by the Journal of Accountancy, went live at Kinslow Sonic Group in Prague, Okla., Wednesday. Plans are also in place for Atwood Management Company, a SONIC® Drive-In franchise headquartered in Ardmore, Okla., to go live in the coming month. This will be the third franchise using Carillon® ERP as its back office accounting system. Collectively, the three franchises operate over 80 drive-ins.
One of Carillon® ERP’s most robust functionalities is Inventory Item Maintenance. The numerous tabs of the Inventory Item Maintenance window allow you to enter more extensive detail about items than most other ERP software allow. Among these tabs are:
At Carillon, our clients are our number one priority. That’s why our developers are constantly enhancing our product to make it the best solution for each of our clients. Carillon® ERP Version 2013 was released last week and all of our clients have been very pleased with the update, which isn’t surprising since most of the improvements are based on their feedback.

ERP has been around for a long time (including its evolution from “Accounting Systems”). Document Imaging has also been available for quite a while. However, fully integrated ERP with Document Imaging—without needing customizations or third-party add-ons—is relatively new, but is proving to be tremendously successful. Therefore, you shouldn’t buy a Document Imaging system that is not thoroughly interfaced with your ERP, and you shouldn’t buy an ERP without a fully integrated Document Imaging system.

The search for and implementation of a new ERP system is never an easy process. For the Moore family, who owns a franchise of more than 30 SONIC® drive-in locations, the search for an ERP system to replace their Sage ERP 100® (formerly MAS 90®) system was no different. Their MAS 90® system was extremely complicated, very tedious, and growing increasingly slow. However, the benefits of their new system, Carillon® ERP, along with the superb training, support, and customer service that Carillon provides have not only made the trials and tribulations of switching systems worth it, but they also made the process easier than expected according to Janet Moore the owner and CEO of the franchise.
