Epicor Awarded 5-Star Rating in CRN®'s 2015 Partner Program Guide

Epicor Inspired Partner Network Recognized by the Annual Guide as One of the Best Channel Partner Programs in the Market

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - April 07, 2015) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company's CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that service solution providers or provide products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

"Epicor is honored to be recognized for offering a best-in-class channel program that delivers solid benefits to our partners located around the world," says Matt Bauer, director, channel sales, ERP Americas for Epicor. "Epicor is focused on not only building profitable, value-based relationships with our partners but providing our customers with business solutions that create true competitive advantage as well. Achieving a 5-star rating in CRN's Partner Program Guide further validates our channel program and the more than 400 partners who have chosen to join our global ecosystem."

The Epicor Inspired Partner Network is a comprehensive sales, marketing, and support program that offers channel partners significant opportunities to grow their businesses with award-winning products, training, and support in a highly competitive and dynamic marketplace. Structured into four partner categories based on the sales and services partners provide, the Epicor Inspired Partner Network includes Reseller Partners, Solutions Partners, Services Partners, and Consulting Partners. Program enrichments include partner certification and training programs delivered via Epicor University, increased course availability through virtual technologies, plus investments in tools such as Partner Relationship Management (PRM), all intended to get channel partners ramped up quickly.

To determine the 2015 5-Star recipients, The Channel Company's Research team assessed each vendor's application based on investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

"Solution providers have a lot of choices when it comes to selecting vendor partners. Identifying the right vendor, with the right technologies, and the right approach can make all the difference," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "Our annual Partner Program Guide and 5-Star rating recognizes the best channel programs available in the market today to help solution providers determine which vendors deliver the best partner elements for their individual business goals."

Epicor is looking for partners that are leaders in their field and has built a program to offer substantial benefits and support to these partners. For more information about the Epicor Inspired Partner Network, email partnerinfo@epicor.com.
