Epicor’s Partners for Growth Program Is Recognized in CRN’s Annual Guide and 5-Star Partners Listing as One of the IT Channel’s Most Elite Vendor Partner Programs
Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, today announced that the Company has been named to CRN’s 2011 Partner Programs Guide, and has also been awarded a 5-Star Partner rating. CRN’s Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star rating serves as the definitive list of vendors who have robust partner programs or products that service solution providers offer directly to the IT channel. The annual list recognizes the vendors who offer solution providers the best possible partnering elements for channel success.
“We are honored that Epicor’s Partners for Growth program is recognized as a 2011 5-Star Partner Programs Guide winner by CRN,” said George Klaus, chairman, president and CEO of Epicor. “Epicor is proud to work with our channel partners around the world who are leaders and industry experts in their chosen focus. Epicor’s Partners for Growth program is designed to help our partners achieve even greater levels of performance with our industry-leading business software solutions and compelling business proposition. We continue to focus on adding superior partners to assist us in delivering on our commitment to provide our customers with innovative products, leading technologies, and best-in-class service and support. We thank our partners for their significant contribution to Epicor’s growth and success.”
Epicor’s Partners for Growth program is a comprehensive sales, marketing and support program that offers partners significant opportunities to grow their businesses with award-winning products, training and support in a highly competitive, dynamic marketplace. Epicor provides the best tools and services to enable its partners to win more business with industry-leading business software solutions, increase profitability with margins created to increase bottom line, and improve professional services revenue utilizing Epicor’s proven Signature Implementation Methodology and customization tools. A very important distinction to make is Epicor partners are considered an extension of the organization, they receive the same training and are treated as if they are a direct Epicor employee. In return, when Epicor engages with a prospective customer, whether it’s via a channel partner or Epicor directly, the customer gets the same level of experience and support.
“The companies listed on the 2011 Partner Programs Guide represent the best channel programs in the market today. Of those, only a few get our five-star award, based on their commitment to the channel, breadth of program offerings and services offered to their partners. Each of these organizations understands that technology alone does not make for a successful channel program. By focusing on delivering a comprehensive partner program, ERP vendors and solution providers can work together to drive business opportunities and revenue,” said Kelley Damore, vice president and editorial director, for Everything Channel’s CRN.
More than 300 authorized partners worldwide participate in Epicor’s comprehensive partner program. For more information on Epicor’s Partners for Growth program, visit us on the Web at: www.epicor.com/partners.
