A key benefit for all users is that Epicor is built on native Microsoft technology platforms based on an SOA architecture and REST services. As standard there is a Superuser toolkit allowing for the modification of the database, screen customisation/configuration and the application of localised and company based business rules and workflow. Custom/configured changes delivered through the toolkit have no impact on the core logic of the ERP System.
This allows trained superusers to take full control of the application without any risk of interrupting core business logic and also allows for all changes to upgrade with the standard application.
