Epicor named Technology Partner of the Year


Epicor was honoured as Technology Partner of the Year by Automotive Distribution Network during their 2018 Network National Convention on Orlando.  

The award recognizes success through business management software, electronic catalog solutions, and industry data analytics.  

Epicor helped in developing Stratus, a comprehensive, enterprise solution for Network members. It includes POS, distribution management, accounts payable, general ledger, integration with the Network’s NetIntell data warehouse, and includes WebShop connectivity to service dealers. This specific tool is used by more than 100 member companies along with Epicor-powered “Customer Insight” mobile sales and customer relationship management solution that is used by about 400 Network member employees.  

“Epicor is a partner in every sense of the word,” said Tom Frey, vice president of information technology at the Network. “They offer the best point of sale (POS) application catalog in the industry. Their Epicor Vista inventory modeling tool has been a tremendous resource, helping our members stock the right parts in the right places. And they provide dedicated representation that helps make a positive difference every day.” 

“It’s especially rewarding to be honoured by an organization like the Network, whose members clearly understand the role modern technologies can play in helping to ‘grow beyond’ traditional business constraints,” said Scott Thompson, senior vice president, automotive and business services at Epicor. “Tom and his team play an invaluable role in helping Network members find and apply solutions that can lead to stronger growth, improved profitability, and increased customer satisfaction and loyalty.”
