These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world's premier Information Technology (IT) awards honouring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry.
"It's an honour to be named a finalist for the Hot Companies and Best Products awards," said John Hiraoka, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Epicor. "The awards recognize the great success of our next-generation ERP solution, which offers not only deep industry-specific functionality, but also unprecedented choice and flexibility through its unique ability to be delivered on-premise, hosted, or in the cloud. Epicor's visionary software, innovative technology, and vertically-focused service offerings can allow our customers to deploy one business information system that can meet their needs -- whether they are small or large, regional or global, require on-premise, on-demand or both. That capability and flexibility is not only 'Hot' and 'Best,' but something that really can help businesses increase efficiency and productivity, which we see as critical to driving growth and profitability in today's global economy."
The coveted annual Hot Companies and Best Products awards program attracts participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, and encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, support and customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of IT.
"By reaching the finalists stage in several categories, Epicor has demonstrated that it is making an impact in the industry," said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Network Products Guide. "Through these industry and peer awards we want to seek and honor the best that continue to innovate and progress each year."
