Your resources are limited. whether you need a complete business system installed and customized for your needs or are in need of routine maintenance, if you lack the capital or in-house talent to take on the project, an Epicor consultant may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

In-house resources lack the expertise. Let’s say have open tasks in Epicor maintenance. You know what needs to get done and you have the capital to invest in the project, but your team doesn’t have the experience in implementation, upgrades, or custom coding you require. This is where a consultant can step in and guide your team to success and then train your staff to the level of operation your business requires.

Learning from the best practices.  There are potentially several ways to achieve your goals in Epicor. However, not every approach to a problem leads to a solution, you may take care of one need and end up causing issues elsewhere int he system. knowing the ins and outs of the Epicor system is where we excel. Our Epicor consultant team has been implementing Epicor best practices for decades in an array of environments. What’s more important is that we’ve seen the consequences when shortcuts are taken. Use our expertise so that you don’t have to learn the hard lessons of what happens when best practices and sound advice are not followed.

The Benefits of Attending Epicor Insights 2018

Here’s what you can expect to get out of your attendance at Insights 2018:

  • Classes – Dozens of 60-90 minute classes are held that are interactive, headed by subject matter experts, and allow questions.
  • Hands-On Labs – The labs are more detailed and hands-on with lab exercises to enter into Epicor and view the results. Two people share a computer to perform the exercises.
  • Extended Education Sessions – These unique classes are held the Saturday and Sunday prior to the conference. The sessions are far more in-depth than the labs held during the conference. Each individual session costs an additional $260 per attendee. The benefits they offer include smaller class size and product-specific training with access to technical experts in each instance.
  • Solutions Pavilion – An on-site installation where Epicor and the Epicor Alliance partners demo solutions that extend the Epicor application. This is an opportunity to meet face-to-face with personnel to answer your business and technical questions.
  • Latest Epicor Version – Take advantage of witnessing the latest version of Epicor 10 firsthand. If you’re running an older or legacy version of Epicor, this is the best opportunity to see what tools you’re missing out on.

  • Discount – Your company receives a significant discount if you register four or more employees for the event.
  • One-on-One Meetings – Opportunity to schedule One-on-One meetings with Epicor executives and subject matter experts who normally charge by the hour.
