Fifth Consecutive Placement in the Visionaries Category for Epicor; Evaluation Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Visionaries” quadrant of the Magic Quadrant (MQ) for Single-Instance ERP for Product-Centric Midmarket Companies based on the evaluation of its next-generation Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP version 10.1
The MQ for ERP for Product-Centric Midmarket Companies focuses on ERP systems that support a single instance strategy for multi-entity midmarket and upper-midmarket companies. User organizations in this market are independent companies with revenue between approximately $200 million and $2 billion, and typically up to 10,000 employees, or sometimes more.2 Access to the full report is available from the Epicor website.
Epicor ERP Built for Choice, Collaboration, Responsiveness, Simplicity and Mobility
“We’re proud of our positioning as a ‘Visionary’ in the quadrant for the fifth consecutive year,” says Joe Cowan, president and chief executive officer of Epicor. “Our customers trust us to deliver innovative business software with rich global capabilities and deep industry expertise that will help them drive growth, profitability and inspire new opportunity throughout their enterprise. With Epicor ERP 10 we have transformed our technology and are delivering a highly scalable, multi-tenant SaaS solution which we believe is incredibly important given the essential role the cloud is playing in modern business. Other significant themes put forth in the latest version include further embracing the mobile mind shift through enterprise-wide device access, graphical business modeling to simplify deployment and enhance the user experience, as well as enhanced analytics and fostering the next level of business collaboration with social media concepts embedded throughout our ERP solution. Customers around the world are benefiting from an ERP solution that is faster to deploy, easier to use, and designed to support the agility that businesses require to succeed now and in the future.”
Today, over 4,500 customers — from manufacturers and distributors, to services organizations — representing more than 80 countries around the globe have selected Epicor ERP to run their organizations. In April 2014, Epicor introduced ERP 10 built on agile technology that eliminates complexity to make ERP easier to use, more collaborative and more responsive than ever before. Epicor ERP is designed to support today’s business imperatives: social collaboration, deployment flexibility, accelerated performance and broad device accessibility.
Across multiple devices — from tablets to PCs — and expanded deployment choices with on-premise, cloud or managed service, Epicor ERP delivers a consistent experience in a single solution. The powerful Epicor ICE Business Architecture, the foundation of Epicor ERP, is the framework that enables organizations to map Epicor ERP to specific business rules and processes, without changing source code. This drives increased performance, scalability, and ease of use, while reducing the cost and complexity of doing business leveraging a 100% Microsoft® technology stack.
