Leading Analyst Firm Positions Epicor® as Visionary in Magic Quadrant for Midmarket and Tier 2-Oriented ERP
The MQ for Midmarket and Tier 2-Oriented ERP for Product-Centric Companies addresses the needs of product-centric companies or divisions of enterprises with between 100 and 999 employees, and with annual revenue between $50 million and $1 billion.
Broadest Midmarket Solution
"Epicor has an enviable and established track-record of continually leveraging technology innovation, along with a comprehensive range of products and services, to help businesses increase efficiency and productivity to more effectively drive their objectives," said George Klaus, chairman, president and CEO of Epicor. "We believe Epicor's positioning as a visionary vendor in this report supports our long-standing commitment to providing our customers with flexible, scalable and cost-effective solutions that keep pace with the latest technologies and enable business without barriers."
In December 2008, Epicor released Epicor 9 which converges the Company's 25 years of experience delivering enterprise-wide solutions into a single next-generation global ERP solution. Epicor 9 is a highly-advanced and globally configurable ERP solution that utilizes Web 2.0 concepts to provide users with a truly collaborative and productive enterprise business application experience.
Model-Driven Packaged Applications are the Future for Business
According to Gartner, "A new application style is emerging that combines business process management (BPM), service-oriented architecture (SOA) and packaged application styles to create what Gartner calls a 'model-driven packaged application.' Model-driven packaged applications will emerge as a mainstream element of the packaged application market by 2013, making the manipulation of applications easier, faster and more intuitive." 
With Epicor 9, which has been shipped to over 500 customers to date, companies can already take advantage of this key technology trend that is expected to transform the market.
