Alliance Names Epicor 2021 Technology Partner Of The Year

The announcement was made during the Alliance’s virtual IT Summit.

The Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance has announced Epicor as the 2021 Technology Partner of the Year.

The announcement was made during the Alliance’s virtual IT Summit.

“At the heart of everything we do is the customer and our partners,” said Tim Hardin, senior vice president and GM of Epicor. “On behalf of Epicor and our automotive aftermarket team, thank you to the selection committee for this prestigious award. It affirms that we are delivering insight in ways that have sustained during this unprecedented year and energizes us for the future.”

The recognition is given to the Alliance technology partner that best supports and serves the Alliance membership. The Alliance IT Committee, which served as the selection committee, voted unanimously in support of Epicor.

“Epicor does a fine job for us and we are grateful for their partnership,” said John R. Washbish, president and CEO. “They are a deserving choice for this year’s award.”

The Technology Partner of the Year announcement, typically made during the Alliance’s in-person IT summits, closed out the virtual general session. About 100 attendees signed on to the two-day virtual event.

“Epicor has provided exceptional value both to the Alliance and our shareholder owners, particularly over the past year,” said Dale. Hopkins, vice president and CIO. “We appreciate their ongoing support and congratulate them on this achievement.”

Hopkins and the IT Committee noted that Epicor offered tremendous support in many different ways to merit the award.

“Congratulations and thank to our longtime vendor, technology partner and friends at Epicor,” said Mike Carr, chairman of the Alliance’s IT Committee. “Epicor has supported the Alliance and all our shareholders for years, with warehouse, store and shop computer systems, cataloging and data analytics. 

“This past year was interesting, to say the least. Epicor stepped up to enhance the tools that we use to monitor our business and how COVID is and did affect our day-to-day operations. They also continued to deliver new product and tools, like heavy duty bi/data, new vendor invoice/purchase data module. Along with their graphical catalog for our business-to-business website, MyPlace4Parts, a real game changer. These are just a few things that Epicor did above and beyond to make them the Aftermarket Auto Parts Alliance Technology Partner of the Year.”
