Epicor Vantage is an easy-to-use solution designed to meet the needs of make-to-order and mixed-mode manufacturing companies. It is delivered 榦ut-of-the-box with built-in workflow processes that enable manufacturers to manage the entire order cycle: from marketing and sales through production and planning, sourcing and procurement, installation and service, and finally financial recognition.
