DUBLIN, Calif. July 24, 2012 -- Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced the kick-off of the 2012 Epicor User Summits being held July through November in 12 cities across North America. Delivering expert insights, interaction with peers and the opportunity to engage Epicor in an open, collaborative forum, the user summits are a series of one-day events where customers will gain knowledge to leverage Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to experience greater growth, heightened productivity and increased profitability.
“Our user summits provide an ideal setting to learn, share and network,” said Malcolm Fox, director, product marketing for Epicor. “Customers attending the summits will walk away inspired, armed with new ideas and ways to maximize their ERP investments and leverage Epicor solutions to achieve their business goals. All attendees stand to benefit from the unique networking opportunity and ability to draw from peer insights, shared knowledge and experiences of proven success with Epicor solutions.”
New to the agenda this year is the Change Acceleration Process (CAP) workshop. Epicor ERP customers will obtain the tools and methodologies necessary to effectively implement major change in their organizations, gaining valuable knowledge on how process metrics drive shareholder value, and the key performance indicator accountability necessary to drive financial performance, value differentiation, and sales growth by leveraging the “Creating High Performance” model developed by Epicor.
For Epicor human capital management (HCM) customers, the company has added Epicor HCM User Summits to be hosted alongside the ERP sessions in four cities—Baltimore, MD; Boston, MA; Chicago, IL; and, San Jose, CA. In addition to networking with other human resources professionals, attendees will see the latest release of Epicor HCM in action, attend an interactive workshop teaching the “SIMPL” formula for managing and motivating people, and learn best practices for the annual benefit election process using Epicor HCM at the Open Enrollment Workshop. Attendees of the HCM User Summits will also receive 3 education credits, as the program has met the HR Certification Institute’s criteria for recertification credit.
