Epicor Software Corporation, a provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, has announced a new alliance independent software vendor (ISV) programme designed to bring innovative technology solutions from a host of providers to Epicor customers.
The new programme is designed to simplify the way Epicor engages, manages, and helps its Alliance ISV partner ecosystem tap into the latest technology advances and growing market demand for Epicor products.
Vish Thirumurthy, global head of alliance ISV partners, Epicor Software, said: "Our goal is to build a strong collaborative relationship that offers our partners significant opportunities to grow their business in partnership with Epicor." Thirumurthy added that: "Together we have a better story with stronger value propositions for our customers, and are all better positioned to accelerate growth and improve our competitive position."
According to the ERP vendor, Alliance ISV Partners will receive a wealth of resources and support to help grow their Epicor business opportunities.
"The new Alliance ISV hub provides us a centralised location that encompasses our partnership across the business relationship, go-to-market strategies, development, and quality analysis," said Scott Cone, vice president, Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd.
Cone said having access to the latest ERP code base, API tutorials, the online help, user guides, and training will allow Hitachi to easily onboard new developers to continue making this partnership a success.
According to Epicor, the programme features a comprehensive developer enablement hub, training, solution certification programme and marketing support that will provide partners significant opportunities to grow their business based upon Epicor's product platform.
In addition, certified products will be showcased in the new Epicor Alliance ISV Solution Gallery for increased visibility in the highly competitive and dynamic ERP solution ecosystem.
"The new Alliance ISV programme is exciting for Smart Software because it will allow us to go to market with our solutions faster by allowing our development team to easily keep up with changes to the Epicor code base," said Greg Hartunian, president, Smart Software Inc.
Hartunian said the time saved will be used to build out even more differentiating inventory planning, forecasting, and analytics functionality to support today's modern businesses alongside Epicor.
