Epicor to host customer conference

Epicor Software Corporation is hosting the largest global customer conference in the company’s more than 40-year history, Insights 2013. Epicor expects to welcome 3,000 users of its distribution, enterprise resource planning (ERP), human capital management (HCM), and retail solutions software to Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, TN from May 13-16.

The global conference brings together Epicor customers, partners, and industry and product experts to collaborate on best practices, plans, tactics, strategies, solutions and insights. To kick off the conference on Tuesday morning, opening keynote speakers include Epicor President and CEO Pervez Qureshi and Epicor Chief Marketing Officer John Hiraoka. Qureshi and Hiraoka will share business highlights, market insights and how visionary technology drives business innovation.

“With our largest conference ever, Insights 2013 will showcase sessions from all aspects of the extended value chain and provide more opportunities for our customers worldwide to network with each other,” said Qureshi. “We are thrilled to engage and collaborate with customers to inspire innovation and creativity to enable more dynamic user experiences, valuable knowledge and insight that attendees will bring back to their organizations to gain the most benefit from their Epicor software solutions.”

Joe Montana, legendary NFL quarterback and author of “The Winning Spirit: 16 Timeless Principles That Drive Performance Excellence,” will provide the Wednesday, May 15, keynote address. Widely considered as the best NFL quarterback of all time, Montana was twice named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player and led the San Francisco 49ers to four Super Bowl wins, earning three Super Bowl Most Valuable Player awards. He was selected to eight Pro Bowls and named All-Pro five times. Montana retired from professional football in 1995 and to honor his achievements, he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000. Montana now brings his lessons of preparation, teamwork and performance under pressure to large and small business audiences as a popular motivational speaker.
