Epicor was among the select companies invited to participate in the November 14, 2008, Forrester Wave report, The Forrester Wave™: Order Management Hubs, Q4 2008. Forrester looked at eight leading order management solutions in a 152-criteria evaluation, citing Epicor as a leader because of strong support for end-to-end order processes and forward-looking product strategies.
Ray Wang, vice president and principal analyst with Forrester, and author of the report, writes, "Adoption of advanced Microsoft tools and technology provide Epicor Software with an agile and comprehensive application foundation. Rich analytics, intuitive user experiences, and strong support for data out processes earn Epicor Software a top-two placement for data and infrastructure.”
The report continues, “Epicor Software leads the corporate strategy category among all vendors evaluated due to the company’s strong focus, excellent customer references, strong internal professional services, and rich global support. Forrester recommends Epicor Software for all clients considering a solution built on Microsoft Visual Studio .NET technologies and for SMBs up to $5 billion in revenues looking for a user-centric alternative to the usual suspects.”
