    • How to Free Your Data
      Business Intelligence (BI) applications while not new have certainly become more accessible to the small to mid-sized business. The features are just as powerful as the applications which cost tens of thousands of dollars but provide an implementation and user experience which is modern, mobile and cloud-based. 


    • Gain Insights from your Systems’ Data

      Ask a hundred people what Business Intelligence software is and you’ll get two hundred different answers. Over the last few years there have been a number of new Business Intelligence (BI) applications released to the market. The Cloud and mobile are driving new capabilities in being able to access, create and share data in ways that haven’t been possible before or affordable to do so. 

    • It’s Time to Transform
      As a Distributor you have very big challenges in front of you as the competition is increasing and margins are decreasing. You wish this were reversed but it’s not. The Cloud is driving some of this pressure as your competitors are implementing new software solutions to help them improve margins and stand out from the crowd. Maybe it’s time to look at how BI software in the Cloud, sometimes referred to as Software as a Service (SaaS), can help you.


    • Put Your Head in the Cloud
      Cloud computing continues to drive business transformations across the Distribution industry. And that is not marketing hype. Look at the latest industry news, you’ll find multiple stories on how the "Cloud” is changing Distribution. Some of the times for the positive and other times for the negative. If you haven’t felt the impact of the Cloud within your business you will, either in how you run it or how your competition is using it.


    • Get the Right Insights into Your Distribution Business
      Bob Dylan wrote, "If you’re not busy being born, you’re busy dying ." The same seems to be true in the context of operating a distribution business. The wholesalers who are most energized and, often, most successful, are the ones who understand that technology is a sales and profit enabler- not a cost center. They are continually looking for ways to grow their business, harvest additional competitive value from their systems, and when those systems have been maxed out, they carefully select a new system with proven potential to drive their growth for over the next several years. 


    • Duncan Parnell Celebrates 70 Years and Business Transformation Award

Not only celebrating this milestone, the company also received  the Business Transformation Award during the first annual Epicor 2016 Customer Excellence Award for the Americas held earlier this year.

    • The Four Pillars of Differentiation for Distributors
      In today’s global and digital distribution market, the rules of engagement have changed. Customer expectations have expanded from the traditional ones of cost, quality, speed, and flexibility to include convenience, on-demand information, personalization, prompting, and updating status, as well as social concerns such as sustainability and environmental responsibility.

    • Over 60% of Leading Electrical Distributors Partner with Epicor

We were thrilled to see that more than 60% of survey respondents are running their organizations with help from Epicor, and in fact most of our customers are concentrated at the top of the list.

    • Four Ways to Attract and Retain Millennials in the Distribution Industry
      According to PwC, millennials are expected to account for 75% of the global workforce by 2025, yet in a recent study commissioned by Epicor and conducted by MORAR Consulting, only 19% of distribution business leaders said recruiting millennials was a "fairly significant" or "major" focus for their organizations. Top distributors know this problem can no longer be ignored – here are four strategies to ensure your organization is prepared for the future.
