More than 900 professionals gathered in Nashville, Tennessee on Nov. 8-10 to attend the Epicor Insights for Building Supply event and learn more about trends in the industry and interact with current and upcoming technologies. The company creates software solutions and other services to support businesses in the building, automotive, distribution, manufacturing and retail industries.
Following bootcamp classes and welcome reception, the event kicked off with keynote speakers CIO Rich Murr, Product Management Vice President John Carrico, and Group Vice President Kerrie Jordan discussing new products coming from the company and their strategic vision for 2023.
Murr discussed how current economic challenges and feedback from the company’s customers is influencing the services that Epicor provides and how they plan to use that to tailor products in the near future.
“One of the keys to our success is connectivity for our customers. We think that we take this very seriously,” Murr said. “We’re investing literally a lot more in product service … and you will see the benefits of that investment materialized over the coming quarters in the coming year, focused on innovation.”
During the keynote, the company announced it will extend its relationship with Microsoft Azure, which provides cloud computing services, and also presented on Snap Studio, a platform that allows dealers and distributors to easily create, modify and fill orders.
Epicor also recognized three companies, lumber wholesaler ETT Fine Woods, Nebraska-based home improvement company Builders, and UK-based building supply company Bradfords Building Supply, for their work in the industry and their communities. As part of the award, Epicor announced the company will contribute $4,000 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and $2,000 to The Dorset and Someset Air Ambulance charitable organization.
Epicor’s event continues through Nov. 10. Check back for more photos and updates.
