In today’s environment, mobile solutions are seen as core drivers of organizations pushing to gain operational efficiencies over their competitors. According to a recent report from Aberdeen Group, “enterprise mobile apps in 2013 are no longer ‘nice to have’—they’ve become essential enablers of organizational transformation, by increasing operational efficiency, accelerating time-to-decision, deepening customer engagement, and streamlining workflow processes.” (Source: Aberdeen Group, “Enterprise-Grade Mobile Apps: Powering Organizational Transformation,” by Andrew Borg, April 2013.)

Epicor has been in the mobile space for many years, with handhelds to help shippers and receivers accomplish their task in the warehouse and with purpose built devices using Windows mobile for field service jobs. Today, we still provide this functionality and have enhanced it with the mobile applications that can be downloaded to standard smartphones and tablets. Now more than ever it is easier for the customer to implement their mobile strategy. We take a very bottom-up approach to our mobile initiatives:
