Epicor Changes to Product Support
Epicor have revamped their customer support policy to improve their services so what does this mean to you?
The new policy has two elements Active Support and Sustaining Support. Epicor have announced that any release within two years of the general availability date will receive optimum support under an Active Support policy giving access to the latest technology advancements, current software updates along with experiences support back up.
For companies on software releases older than two years from general availability Epicor will no longer be providing with the same level support as in the past, these customers will come under the Sustaining Support policy focused on promoting stability with access to experienced support resource, access to existing software updates and the technology advancements through the Epicor upgrade programme.
This change is a notable shift in the support policy as Epicor have in the past supported nearly all the software releases it has brought to market. Although this change may sound like it is for the worse, for Epicor customers it does bring them into line with all the major players in the ERP marketplace.
Additionally, it allows Epicor to provide its customers with a roadmap for their digital transformation and improve its services for the most recent products released along with their attractive upgrades policy it allows businesses to plan for upgrades and improvements whilst allowing Epicor to provide a more robust and responsive service.
