Meet Epicor’s Executive Vice President, Worldwide Research and Development, Paul Farrell. Paul brings over 20 years of experience with enterprise resource planning systems to the company and is responsible for product development of the company’s enterprise software product lines.
Q: Paul, What is your vision for the new Epicor?
A: I think the vision for the new Epicor is to deliver the only software solution a customer will ever need.
Q: What is most important in your role as EVP, Worldwide R&D that will help to achieve this vision?
A: My major role is to ensure that we maintain a balance between producing products that people want to buy and producing products that people want to use. Customers when buying a product want a solution that has every bell and whistle. However generally when using it they need their “5 screens” completely, uncluttered, optimized and simple.
Q: If you could trade places with any other person for a week, living or dead, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
A: Billy McNeill– the captain of the Glasgow Celtic (my favorite football “soccer” team and undisputed greatest football team in the world). He led them to the European cup, nine consecutive league titles and many cup wins as a player. Later as a manager he led the team to numerous league and cup wins. Swapping for the week he won the European Cup would have been great.
