Optimize Your Entire Distribution Business with Eclipse
Epicor Eclipse provides tools to dramatically enhance productivity, while delivering process refinements to improve the business effectiveness of distributors. Eclipse features a unique, intuitive user interface that makes it easy to interact with your customers while conducting business. The system enables you to eliminate communication breakdowns in your organization through true task automation and digital to-do lists. Self-populating, self-cleaning work queues inform every employee in your company about important matters that need their attention — such as a sales order that may be held up because of a credit hold but is really of vital importance to a customer who is unaware of any account issue or thinks the matter has already been resolved. This allow employees to focus more time on the customer, get more done within the software and help increase customer satisfaction.
