Epicor Software Corporation
, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today announced that the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager™ solution has been named a gold winner in Most Innovative Product of the Year – SMB category of the Best in Biz Awards 2016, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Retail business management experts at Epicor, and the premier firearms management consultancy, Orchid Advisors™, designed and built the Epicor FFL Compliance Manager application to simplify compliance for federal firearms licensees (FFL) and help FFL businesses perform better and grow faster.
“If companies are going to stand out from the crowd and remain competitive in future years, innovation is key. The market is tough and there is no guarantee that today’s dominant players will remain so — unless time and effort are concentrated on research and development,” said Charlie Osborne, ZDNet, 2016 Best in Biz Awards’ judge. “This year’s entries in Best in Biz Awards highlighted not only innovative business practices but the emergence of next-generation technologies which will keep companies current and relevant.”
The sixth annual program in North America garnered more than 600 entries, from an impressive array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries. Best in Biz Awards 2016 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Technology Department of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, and Best New Product of the Year, among others. Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2016 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 50 judges from widely known newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, TV outlets, and analyst firms.
“We are honored to be named a winner in the Best in Biz Awards 2016 for our innovative solution, Epicor FFL Compliance Manager,” said Doug Smith, director of product marketing, retail and distribution at Epicor Software. “Since its inception, the software has helped numerous FFL dealers streamline firearm transaction entry and reduce non-compliance risks within their businesses. We are excited to continue delivering the right technologies that help FFL dealers gain and maintain a competitive advantage that stimulates growth.”
