EPICOR Software has reaffirmed its support of Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and the new Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program.
Recently, Epicor leveraged Visual Studio .NET 2003 in the delivery of Epicor Internet Component Environment (ICE), its web services application development platform.
Epicor ICE, built using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and running on top of the Microsoft .NET Framework, extends the value of web services technology to midmarket businesses at an affordable price.
It enables them to extend and customise Epicor solutions, like the new enterprise service automation (ESA) solution built for the .NET Framework, 'Epicor for Service Enterprises'.
Epicor ICE utilises Microsoft Visual Studio for Applications (VSA), an industry-standard method for customising and extending web services, as the backbone for its customisations tools, Epicor ICE VSA Workbench.
Together they empower a company to carry out painless and cost-effective customisation that extends the performance and capability of its business applications.
Epicor for Service Enterprises is an intuitive ESA application that manages and streamlines virtually every aspect of the midmarket service organisation - from bid management to engagement delivery and resource management, through project accounting, portfolio management and beyond - all within a single solution.
Through Epicor's adoption of leading-edge web services technologies, Epicor for Service Enterprises offers enterprise functionality at a midmarket total cost of ownership.
