Epicor has a deep, long-standing relationship with Microsoft. A consistent early adopter of Microsoft technologies, Epicor has been building business applications using Microsoft tools for over twenty years. Epicor is committed to providing its customers with industry-leading enterprise software solutions, and our ability to deliver on this commitment is strengthened by our partnership with Microsoft. Epicor’s dedication to evaluating, understanding and leveraging emerging technologies in order to deliver measurable business benefits to our customers has not only positioned Epicor as a technology innovator but has also created a desire within Microsoft to have Epicor help shape their technology direction.
Like many dedicated partners, Epicor is a member of the Microsoft Partner Network and has achieved the Gold ISV Competency. More importantly, Epicor is a Microsoft recommended and managed partner in an elite group of Global Independent Software Vendors (ISV) within the Developer and Platform Evangelism Group. This position leads Epicor to work even closer with Microsoft to build innovative solutions on the latest technology.
Our adoption of Microsoft technologies can be seen in terms of the accolades that we have received from independent bodies and Microsoft directly. Microsoft has recognized Epicor’s leadership and innovation as a software developer, naming Epicor as "ERP Solution of the Year" in 2001 and as ".NET Application of the Year" for Western Europe in 2003. Epicor was recognized as a finalist for Global ISV of the Year in 2004, 2007 and 2008. Most recently, Epicor was named the Global ISV of the Year for Line of Business applications and Industry Partner Finalist in 2009.
With our long-term partnership as a foundation, Epicor and Microsoft will continue to deliver integrated Microsoft-based solutions to help mid-market and enterprise companies lower their total cost of ownership, achieve greater business agility, and realize greater return on investment.
