Background and Analyst View

 
Although Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is an enterprise-wide solution that is primarily designed to support medium and large businesses in their day-to-day business activities, its financial module, Epicor Financial Management Software (FMS), can be used as a standalone financial application. It remains user-friendly, and has a distinct and unambiguous logic that even relatively inexperienced software users can easily learn and comprehend. In this report, the functional aspects of Epicor FMS are evaluated in comparison with other financial packages, represented by the virtual “average” financial solution, based on TEC’s unique software evaluation methodology.
 
Epicor has been in the enterprise software market since its foundation in 1984, and the company went public in 1992. To fit its strategy of offering businesses a full-range solution, Epicor undertook significant in-house software development as well as acquisition of a number of vendors, eventually becoming a well-known global ERP provider with both direct and indirect presence in more than 150 countries, with over 20,000 corporate customers working in more than 30 languages.  Read more
