Fox says this release delivers a substantial simplification in the overall technology stack and is an unprecedented development project that kicked off in 2007. Early research and promising initial results over a number of years eventually led to this initiative consuming the bulk of our development capacity for the past 30 months, including an extensive global customer beta program.

Inspired by the expectations of today’s tech-aware workforce, Epicor ERP version 10 introduces a number of new applications and technologies that will transform the way companies operate.
