Epicor Software Corporation has launched an initiative that it says will help aftermarket parts and service businesses increase revenue and improve operational efficiency and profitability.
The company says the new “Epic Results” initiative includes free, no-obligation “Profit Clinic” consultations designed to assist business owners and managers in exploring technologies.
Epicor says the Epic Results initiative addresses the technology needs of businesses at every level of the aftermarket value chain – automotive and commercial-vehicle service providers, parts distribution businesses, and parts manufacturers/suppliers.
Topics covered in Epic Results Profit Clinic consultations can be tailored to the needs of each business and participant.
