Epicor ECC Express is an affordable, ready-to-deploy eCommerce solution built to be available as few as 3-5 days.
Customer self-service portals – customers can log into the website to view accounts, orders, invoices, shipments, payments, and quotations within the site itself.
Customers can create an order through the ECC Express site as well, ensuring all necessary communications are routed through the provider’s Epicor system efficiently and securely.
Account management functionality is included, as well. This allows account admins to create users, assign permissions, and retire users responsible for viewing catalogue items, ERP orders, invoices, shipments, and payments.
Sales Rep Roles – Sales representatives using E10, Eclipse, and P21 can leverage Epicor ECC Express functionality to manage accounts, create quotes and submit orders for customers anywhere, even if remote access to their ERP system is not available.
Supplier connect (E10 only) – Suppliers may also connect to the system for RFQs, purchase orders, and PO change requests.
Elastic Search – users visiting the ECC Express site can use search functionality exactly as they would in the ECC standard and Advanced products to find products to create quotations, reference orders, submit RFQs, and more.
Epicor ECC Express is geared toward B2B markets. It has features and functionality designed around new and existing relationships between businesses, their business partners, and their suppliers. Shopping cart functionality is not a part of the ECC Express offering.
Businesses with hundreds or a few thousand products are best suited for ECC Express. For businesses with 10’s of thousands of products, ECC standard or Advanced options are a better product to fit their needs.
Currently, Epicor ECC Express is available only through Cloud (SaaS) deployment options.
Epicor ECC Express, Standard, and Advanced products are powered by Magento, the leading commerce platform. Magento is the provider of the world-leading eCommerce platform on which ECC is built. We chose to collaborate with Magento because of their proven expertise, market presence and flexibility in B2C and B2B. A little on their pedigree – Magento has a huge global infrastructure, with the largest ecosystem of commerce technology and system integrator partners. To make sure you can build out the website that best expresses your brand and your customers’ needs, Magento offers several add-on modules, themes, integrations and skills. Scaleability is a critical factor as well – small size “mom and pop” organizations use Magento all the way through top multinationals.
Key Details of the Magento platform include:
