Epicor IT Service Management (ITSM) was chosen as a winner in the award program for 2008, the sixth year Epicor has received TMCs annual award for excellence.
TMC implemented the CRM Excellence Awards nine years ago as a way of recognising companies that have proven to be true CRM partners to their clients. Epicor was chosen based on the demonstrated ability of its solution to help IT departments keep technology resources running smoothly by quickly responding to issues and find ways to prevent them in the future.
The CRM Excellence Award is based on hard data, facts and numbers that demonstrate the improvements that the winners product has made in a clients business.
Epicor has demonstrated to the editors of Customer Interaction Solutions that their products and services have substantially improved the processes of their clients businesses by streamlining and facilitating the flow of information needed for companies to retain their most precious asset...their customers, said Nadji Tehrani, founder and chairman of TMC, publishers of Customer Interaction Solutions.
