At Epicor Insights, Enterprise Times caught up with Lisa Pope, Executive Vice President, Digital Transformation and Cloud Evangelist. Having moved from Infor, we were keen to find out what Pope was bringing to Epicor. One area in particular was of interest to us and that was cloud, especially given Pope’s experience of bringing cloud computing to several ERP vendors.
Epicor has just 2% of its customer base on its cloud offerings despite starting this journey some time ago. Pope explained that one of the challenges was manufacturers being concerned about shared infrastructure. To address that, she pointed to the launch of Epicor’s dedicated cloud solution. There are a number of other challenges facing manufacturers that Pope highlighted.
We also talked about user experience (UX) and the work Epicor is doing in that area. It is something that cloud companies need to think about if they want to attract new business. Coming from Infor, Pope has a lot of experience around UX and the benefits that it can deliver.
