Epicor Announces Channel Partner Program Enhancements Focused on Growth and Expansion in the Americas

Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth,  announced updates to its award-winning channel program in the Americas. Designed to accelerate growth in the region and enhance customer experience, changes to the program focus on the value partners bring to customers and the Epicor channel ecosystem.

“Channel expansion is a key growth priority for Epicor,” according to Sally Craig, senior director channel, Americas for Epicor. “Empowering our partners to grow their businesses is essential to our mutual success in delivering solutions and services that enable our customers to grow.

Now Epicor is amplifying partner recruitment efforts across the regions to bring additional geographic, industry and key technology expertise to its ecosystem. For example, with plans to expand channel certification for the Epicor Prophet 21® wholesale distribution solution in Canada and Latin America, partners with distribution industry expertise will be essential to support broader availability of the product offering.

Strong Partner Enablement and Development Program to Promote Growth

Six S Partners is the 2016 Epicor Global Partner of the Year and an organization that understands the value of a strong partnership. “Working leads and helping prospects turn into customers is not a simple process,” said John Preiditsch, president, Six S Partners. “Epicor has a strong understanding of that process and together we collaborate on various initiatives to grow our customer base and help us both stand out in the marketplace.”

Simplifying and fine-tuning the partner development program will create new business opportunities for Epicor partners and expand the solutions available to Epicor customers. Focused on helping partners win business and customers grow business, the enhancements to the program in the Americas expand cross-functional collaborations with a number of areas within Epicor:

  • Greater collaboration with channel marketing
  • Streamlined training and certifications through Epicor University
  • Improved alignment with Epicor Professional Services
  • Improved support delivery to customers and partners
  • Partner Advisory Council to better connect with channel community and to improve communication and collaboration

“Ultimately, we want our partners to be an extension of Epicor—driving added value and enhanced customer experiences. Our objective is to empower them to be successful delivering Epicor solutions and services to organizations throughout the Americas,” Craig concluded.
