Training Center

Jeff-g-training-room-2Anyone can read about all of the great things that an Epicor application has to offer, but we can actually teach you through hands-on training how to use your Epicor solution. With a team of masterful educators who have been in the computer application training industry since its inception, we will have your team up-to-speed and working with the system in no time.

 

We train you on your system and not on a training database of information that means nothing to you. After we set up your system to run the way you want it to, we will begin training utilizing real-life scenarios.

 

With a group of application trainers, each of whom has many years of real-life experience using Epicor’s products, we’ll show you how to get the most out of your Epicor experience. Whether you need help with order entry, purchasing or inventory management, we’ll show you how each module and program works in line with your business.

 

Below is a list of our most popular Epicor classes. We also offer customized training, such as delta training, for customers migrating from another platform.
