What You Need To Know About Cloud Computing

From storage to software, if you’re getting/using it over the Internet, it’s cloud computing. “Cloud” is the delivery of on-demand computing resources over the Internet. You can leverage the cloud in many ways, including the deployment of your Epicor ERP system. Learn more about the benefits and challenges associated with Cloud computing.

Product Knowledge At The Core Of Your Company Culture

To demonstrate that you can solve a customer’s pain points, you must know technology solutions at a detailed level—you need deep product knowledge. You must also understand the specific needs of your customers so you can communicate which solutions and capabilities are most relevant to them. When you have more comprehensive knowledge on both fronts, you can communicate how your solution is differentiated, relevant, and superior on a functional level.
