  • 25 August, 2009 11:48

<p>Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions to the midmarket and Global 1000 companies, has announced the general availability of Epicor for Service Enterprises 8.2, the industry-leading, project-based software solution designed expressly for midmarket service organisations. The new version of Epicor for Service Enterprises boasts significant improvements to project management, and introduces the most comprehensive advancements to the solution in recent years, designed in direct collaboration with existing customers, and elevating the application to new levels of usability throughout increasingly challenging project environments.</p>
<p>The release expands capabilities offered to professional services firms, such as audit and accountancy practices, engineering and construction consultants, and embedded IT services groups, allowing them to effectively manage detailed, project-based businesses. Featuring in-context business intelligence, and enhanced functionality in the areas of finance, project planning, and sales management, Epicor for Service Enterprises 8.2 further advances the performance and productive end-user experience of Epicor’s proven project-based enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.</p>
<p>“We’re looking forward to leveraging the enhanced project management capabilities and best-practices of our Epicor solution,” explained Felton ‘Jay’ Miller, CEO of CC&amp;C Management Services LLC – the latest adopter of Epicor for Service Enterprises 8.2. CC&amp;C is the premier relocation planning and move management company in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, and also serves the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, providing additional services including logistics (transportation, building commissioning services, furniture, fixtures &amp; equipment inventory), professional staffing, and management consulting.</p>
<p>Miller continued, “We searched for a comprehensive ERP system which will allow for growth without daunting our end-users. Our business has grown rapidly over the past few years, from just under $500,000 to over $6M in annual revenue. Meanwhile, our projects have remained too complex for disparate I.T. systems. We’re eagerly anticipating the flexibility Epicor provides.”</p>
<p>Epicor for Service Enterprises 8.2 refines controls for midmarket service providers involved in multiple and/or differing aspects of a given project, with the introduction of proxy users, greater task-level control, optional project revisions, improved billing flexibility, expense rules and enhanced indirect revenue recognition. Additionally, embedded analytical tools featuring an improved Web portal and unified business intelligence suite support the need for greater end-to-end business insight, driven by the increasing need for complete and accurate billing operations, and a focus on cost and margin management.</p>
<p>“The latest release of Epicor for Service Enterprises offers unparalleled functionality and flexibility for midmarket services organisations, providing comprehensive, yet easy to use tools across all aspects of a project-based enterprise,” said Malcolm Fox, senior manager of product marketing for Epicor. “Epicor continually leverages the best practices of our customer base, to develop new features and capabilities in direct cooperation with end-users facing intricate business environments. We’re pleased to extend these practices to CC&amp;C Management and the industry at large with the newest release of Epicor for Service Enterprises.”</p>
