Epicor maintains a partner ecosystem through its "Inspired Partner Network" of similarly focussed independent businesses around the world.
Epicor works primarily with three categories of Channel Partners: Reseller Partners, Solution Partners, and Services Partners.
Cothrom Systems Corporation is an Epicor Reseller Partner authorized to offer full sales and services capabilities in the Canadian market.
Epicor awards Reseller and Solution Partners a Platinum, Gold, or Silver level each year based primarily on the previous year's sales volume.
The COTHROMSYSTEMS team received a Platinum award in 2013 and Silver in 2012, 2014, & 2015.
Epicor Certified Partner
Epicor monitors and manages its Channel Partner quality through ad-hoc training and formalized courses, with exams, run by the internal "Epicor University" team.
Epicor and Partner personnel complete the same training road maps to fill their roles. For example, Epicor and Partner Application Consultants complete courses and exams to be certified at three levels of proficiency in each of the areas they may work in (e.g., finance, manufacturing, distribution, and/or business tools).
Epicor certifies a Partner organization when over half of their consultants are certified at Level 1 in the most current version of Epicor's ERP software.
COTHROMSYSTEMS is an Epicor certified partner and all its consultants are certified at Level 2 or 3 in their areas of expertise at the current release of Epicor ERP.
