Our Epicor consulting team can help with any requirement, implementation, new functionality, customizations, development, business process consulting, performance tuning, technical consulting, help desk and hosting.
Experience – the Epicor consulting team at Crawford Software has been working with Epicor ERP systems for more than 10 years. All of our Epicor consultants are certified in multiple releases of the software, and our corporate culture encourages all of the team members to keep their training, certification updated and current. To facilitate this Crawford Software maintains multiple versions of Epicor ERP running on our internal servers. This allows our technical team to process upgrades on our internal servers prior to running it on a client machine. Our functional team can work with all modules to expand their cross training and functional expertise. This also allows us to bring customer databases into our environment to facilitate with support questions as well as developing training based on data that is relevant to the audience, data they work with daily.
Strategic Partner – At Crawford Software our Epicor consulting team always includes the extra effort to make sure we are not just answering a question, or providing a solution for today. We take the time to understand your business, business processes, goals and future plans. We want our solution to be the best solution that works now, and in the future as your business requirements grow. We design customizations and enhancements with upgrade and business process improvement in mind. Our current customers include companies that we have been collaborating with for more than 15 years – why – because they see us a strategic partner that will advise and assist in planning and strategies to improve the use and effectiveness of the system, not just implement a customization or change to meet the current need, then have to redesign and reimplement as the business requirements grow.
