According to Managing Automation, Managing Automation’s independent vendor validation reports are designed to give manufacturing technology decision makers access to the complete and reliable information from vendors.
Today's manufacturing companies are transforming their business through the progressive use of technology and MA will continue to invest in innovative new services that help its readers accelerate their decision-making process.
The MA Validation certification is only awarded to vendors that successfully complete a thorough independent review of the product information they provide to prospective software customers visiting the magazine's Web site.
Managing Automation's validation reports are written by an independent consultant to confirm that feature information provided by the vendor about its product in the magazine’s database is accurate.
Managing Automation’s validation process begins with a detailed review of the software supplier's new update to the Managing Automation database of functional capabilities.
Then an independent consultant visits personally with members of the vendor's corporate staff, not the sales team to discuss their detailed responses.
During this visit, hundreds of functions are selected for further review, demonstration and discussion.
Any discrepancies are addressed and resolved during the briefing and changes are made to the database responses as required to receive the final MA Validation.
Epicor is happy to receive the MA Validation certification from Managing Automation magazine.
Certifying that Epicor Vantage has met or exceeded the stringent validation criteria of an independent consultant helps assure prospective customers that the information they are receiving about this industry-leading solution is accurate whether from leading industry analysts, existing customers or from Epicor. This independent validation confirms that Epicor is a vendor they can rely on and trust.
The Epicor Vantage validation report consists of a solution overview, functional overview including a summary of key capabilities by application and industry, technology overview, enhancement releases, company overview and validation methodology.
