Epicor ERP Awarded Best Overall Value and Scores Highest on ERP Value Index Providing "More Bang for the Buck" Than the Average Vendor

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 08/27/14 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that its next-generation Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution is listed as a Champion and awarded Best Overall Value in the new Midmarket ERP Vendor Landscape published by Info-Tech Research Group. The research firm evaluated ten products in the ERP market, including Epicor ERP, focusing on those vendors that offer broad capabilities across multiple platforms and that have a strong market presence and/or reputational presence among mid and large-sized enterprises.

Info-Tech's evaluation of Epicor ERP reveals that Epicor provides a "very good core offering that is highly extensible," and that the system's "feature set and additional tools are above average for the price point." In the report, Epicor maintained the highest Info-Tech Value Score™ of the vendor group evaluated, achieving 100 on the ERP Value Index. All the vendors evaluated were then benchmarked against the performance of Epicor to provide a complete, relative view of their product offering. According to the study, the overall business strength and strong product features relative to its price point differentiates Epicor, offering "more bang for the buck" than the average vendor. Based on the analysis, Info-Tech analysts recommend that "distributed organizations looking for a single platform for sales, manufacturing, and business processes will find great value in Epicor."(1)
