Epicor is the household name for mid-market manufacturing and distribution companies. Just like Infor, it offers last-mile functionality for manufacturing and distribution companies that may not be available through other enterprise players such as SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft. While Epicor may not be as global a solution as some of their larger competitors, they offer more value to the SMB manufacturers and distributors. Epicor also has a similar strategy as Infor and Aptean to focus on specific industry verticals in the manufacturing and distribution space and have acquired many last-mile products in the last few years. Due to multiple products in its portfolio in the on-prem world, they have had similar challenges competing with other cloud-native vendors. While they have attempted to consolidate their portfolio and give their cloud strategy a new name Kinetic, just like Infor branding its products under CloudSuite, they are still actively selling and developing most of their legacy products.
In today's episode, we invited a panel of industry experts for a live discussion on LinkedIn to discuss major stories in the ERP and digital transformation space and an objective and independent review of Epicor's capabilities. We covered several grounds, including the overview of different product offerings from Epicor and their positioning in the market.
