Epicor Positioned as Visionary in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for ERP for Product-Centric Midmarket Companies
announced it is positioned as a Visionary in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for ERP for Product-Centric Midmarket Companies.
Gartner is the largest research and advisory firm of the information technology industry worldwide. The
Magic Quadrant for ERP for Product-Centric Midmarket Companies evaluates products that have a global presence and are specifically tailored for product-centric midmarket companies with roughly $50 million to $1 billion in revenue.
The Magic Quadrant is Gartner's proprietary methodology to rate IT vendors in a particular market based on Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. In the end, every market is broken out into four quadrants, Leaders (top right), Visionaries (bottom right), Challengers
(top left), and Niche Players (bottom left).
Epicor was positioned as the furthest along the “Completeness of Vision” axis, which not only demonstrates Epicor’s leading completeness of vision but also positions us alone in the “Visionary” quadrant out of a field of 14 ERP offerings. The report narrative speaks to our
successful execution of a multi-product consolidation strategy with Epicor 9—something no other vendor has achieved—which is a testament to our innovation and the break out technology architecture of our Epicor ERP offering – a solution that helps deliver significant business
benefits for our customers.
In December 2008, we released Epicor 9, which converged our 25 years of experience delivering enterprise-wide solutions into a single next-generation global ERP solution. Epicor 9 is a highly-advanced and configurable ERP solution that offers flexibility from a model driven
approach to handling business processes and utilizes Web 2.0 concepts to provide users with a truly collaborative and productive enterprise business application experience.
Today, over 300 customers worldwide are live on Epicor 9, and the solution has been shipped to over 2,000 sites in 56 countries, including shipments to over 800 new customers. And, Epicor continues to leverage modern technology with its visionary approach to architecture, mobility,
embedded analytics and built-in business process management (BPM) features, designed to offer businesses both choice and a high level of flexibility—delivered on-premise, as a managed service, or on-demand in the cloud.
We are very proud of this recognition and achievement.
