Epicor "Innovation in Technology" Category Winners
Epicor University is a tool for lifelong learning that provides customers with the resources to help them realize the greatest benefits from their Epicor enterprise software investment. The Epicor University Learning Channel (EULC) module is an online learning interface that houses a collection of topic-related information and educational collateral which can be developed and organized by multiple content producers working collaboratively. For end users, the content is delivered in smaller, more manageable multi-media segments allowing viewers to easily locate and consume the material needed at their own pace. EULC content is self-contained, and individual content pieces can be launched within a Learning Channel, as self-running entities outside of a Learning Channel, or as part of a separate Learning Channel.
Epicor Social Enterprise , available as a stand-alone module or embedded within Epicor ERP 10, supports organizational collaboration, both internally and externally. It provides a platform that encourages the sharing and sourcing of information, enhancing Epicor ERP to deliver up-to-date information to key stakeholders. Epicor Social Enterprise delivers easier access to business information and fosters cross-company collaboration by bringing social media concepts and contextual ERP information together in a single tool.
More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2014 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner and presentation on September 8, 2014 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, industry leaders, and judges.
