The Epicor Productivity Pyramid is comprised of three complementary solutions built to leverage Epicor service-oriented architecture (SOA) and to bring people, processes and applications closer together – increasing efficiency and collaboration.
Epicor Portal provides secure access and easy-to-use data visualization to allow users to intuitively create data views without any knowledge of the underlying database or querying language. Epicor Portal views can be published to Microsoft® SharePoint® for use by any qualified user, empowering information workers and other stakeholders to build and share business data and events. In addition to providing secure data access, ease of use, improved collaboration, and increased productivity, Epicor Portal views provide the foundation for Epicor Information Worker.
Epicor Information Worker enables users to access data from any number of enterprise applications while remaining within their current Microsoft® Office work context. ERP data may be viewed directly in Microsoft Office where it can be worked with offline and changes synchronized when back online.
Epicor Service Connect allows users to automate tasks and streamline processes to promote efficiency across the supply and demand chains. Employees can focus on value-added activities and management by exception instead of repetitive data entry tasks. Both Epicor Information Worker and Epicor Portal utilize the integration capabilities of Epicor Service Connect to allow business users to update or add new ERP records without having to open the ERP application itself.
Each component of the Productivity Pyramid – Epicor Portal, Epicor Information Worker and Epicor Service Connect – works together in harmony to extend the value of the investment Epicor customers make in enterprise business software.
