Most companies today question when, not if, they’ll adopt cloud computing for the bulk of their IT operations, including the ERP software they use to manage inventory and product manufacturing.[1]  For Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, the answer is now.

Epicor is expanding its strategic partnership with Microsoft to deliver enterprise-class solutions globally on the Microsoft Azure platform. The company is focused on providing solutions that dramatically improve performance and profitability while easing complexity, so its customers can focus on growth. 

By standardizing cloud deployment of its Epicor ERP and Epicor® Prophet 21® enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites on Microsoft Azure, Epicor empowers customers to drive faster growth and innovation as they move to digitally transform their businesses.

“Today, we are seeing more than three-quarters of prospects ask about cloud ERP,” said Epicor CEO, Steve Murphy. “As that deployment model becomes the norm, we are ready to enable our customers to move to the cloud with confidence leveraging the reliability, security, and scalability of Microsoft Azure.”

Unleashing the power of Epicor on the most trusted public cloud platform

The Epicor and Microsoft partnership expands an already proven strategy of building and deploying enterprise business applications in the cloud to a global scale, as more customers adopt the power of Epicor ERP and Prophet 21 running on the world-leading public cloud platform.

Epicor will leverage a range of Azure technologies including Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) to deliver ready-to-use, right-sized productivity and innovation solutions for midmarket manufacturers and distributors. Epicor also plans to explore Microsoft’s technologies for advanced search, speech-to-text, and other use cases to deliver modern human-machine interfaces that improve productivity for its customers.
