Digital Transformation Roadmap - Epicor ERP

Epicor defines digital transformation as, “reimagining how you bring together people, data, and processes to create value for your customers and maintain a competitive advantage in a digital-first world.” At its core, digital transformation is about harnessing the power of the cloud to deliver additional value to your customers and your internal end-users. From moving email and productivity applications to the cloud with services like Epicor to going all-in with the full Epicor Cloud suite, businesses are leveraging the cloud to centralise and integrate information systems throughout the organisation.
