We are always looking at efficiencies-are we remaining relevant to the customer and mproving their experience? Eclipse and Epicor are right at the heart of this. The intelligence network in the Epicor world is unmatched. For growth, we want to partner with a great technology vendor, and Epicor is that for ERP.

I would absolutely recommend Epicor to other companies. We’ve grown dramatically over the last 15 years or so, and the software has grown with us.

Expensive Software Lousy Support Team, Too Much Software Glitches, Delay In Updates

The Good…

Good to manage your inventory, products, sales etc… However not worth of the top dollar you pay

The Bad…

Customer support is lousy, they get back to you with delays, Account managers are only available when you need an extra patch, or something to purchase for the software. Excessive charges for each user and No clarity!

Expensive software with absolutely no support for customers, they promise the world, and as soon as you have paid, offer no service or support. Been running their new system for nearly 2 years, have problems that have still not been resolved from the initial implementation. I have been using a “temporary” patch with limited function since initial installation, and not a single person from Epicor will return my phone calls or e-mails about a permanent solution. Extremely disappointed with this product.

The Good…

user interface

The Bad…

cumbersome to use, not always intuitive, no support from company

I love the report writer I use many reports and customize what I need . There is a huge work load lifted with the random cycle counts . No more doing full inventory’s ! Over all I really enjoy the processes that are more user friendly for the staff . Over all this is a huge time safer and great way to maintain all aspects of your company .

The Good…

User friendly software was a huge help ! specially with new staff coming on as we grow !

The Bad…

The biggest thing would be when I do have to call for help I am sent to over seas and even though the people are pleasant I feel I waste a lot of time talking to them to find out I have a tier 2 issue which they are not able to help me on and I am sent to another person ,which the problem is resolved but it is a timely process . Hoping in time that will get better as I saw many others have raised concern on this issue as well . Other than that I have other complaints on software and greatly enjoy the features !

Epicor Eclipse is a great tool for our business. We are a Plumbing, Heating and A/C wholesaler with 12 locations in 4 states. This software makes managing inventory and accounting easier than it should be.

The Good…

I like the Solar version the most currently as it makes putting orders into excel a snap

The Bad…

My least liked part about Eclipse is that almost all tier 1 support went to India a little over a year ago. They are getting good at support but US based support was a lot nicer.

We have used Epicor Eclipse for over ten years, and are very pleased with the features and power. The ERP suite has helped us to be competitive and definitely increased our profitability. The availability of inquiries, drill-downs, and interoperability throughout the various modules allow us to support our customers’ needs and respond quickly and efficiently. If you are interested in this ERP package, I suggest you review the many features available and get a clear understanding of what they can do. Note that some important modules, such as EDI and document imaging, are not part of the core package and must be added to your package quote from Epicor.

The Good…

Eclipse’s live updating of all information, strong interconnection between the modules, and powerful pricing and purchasing tools help us to buy what we need on time, and sell it competitively and profitably. Epicor also provides regular feature addons and updates in releases to existing users.

The Bad…

There are many important modules, such as EDI and document imaging, that are not part of the core package and must be purchased separately. Also, some new features added to Eclipse must be purchased by current Eclipse customers, with added maintenance fees as well.
