Latest Epicor ERP Release
Epicor ERP 10.2.500, the second of two releases this year, was recently unveiled with new tools and enhancements designed to optimize enterprise productivity, improve the user experience and deliver exciting innovations to help businesses stay competitive.
According to Aberdeen, organizations that do not upgrade their ERP could miss out on significant improvements that support business growth. Therefore, regular upgrades are imperative to increasing market share and growing your business. Furthermore, challenges in attracting new talent to manufacturing and distribution positions make mobile and collaborative ERP tools valuable assets for enticing a modern workforce.
With the latest version of its ERP solution, Epicor continues to advance its offerings to enable businesses to eradicate pain points and meet goals. We put together a brief overview of Epicor 10.2.500 to get you acquainted with the new and improved ERP features of the recent release.
