Poised to transform the future of enterprise resource planning (ERP) for manufacturers, distributors, and retailers, Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, unveiled its product vision for the next-generation of user interface (UI) technology and design and industry cloud platforms that will drive Epicor solutions enabling customers and partners to embrace cloud, Internet of Things (IoT), mobility, predictive analytics, and other emerging technologies.

 “Our product strategy embraces the unique strengths of Epicor industry-specific platforms, underpinned by a modern service fabric and topped with cross-platform applications that achieve digital transformation and raise the bar for automation, analytics, and customer experience,” said Himanshu Palsule, Chief Product and Technology Officer at Epicor Software.

Unveiled to more than 3,000 customers attending the Epicor global user conference Insights 2018, Epicor Kinetic Design is a three-pronged common cross-platform user experience (UX) framework comprised of Epicor Kinetic Design, Epicor Kinetic Framework, and Epicor Kinetic applications.

“This shift in business models is transforming how people think about the technologies they have today—systems of record are now systems of engagement, intelligence, and decisions,” Palsule continued. “Today, we unveil a true platform for innovation that delivers common shared services that power everything—with layers, design, and externalization of cloud—through a collection of industry experience and reusable services that our partners and customers can build on.”

Epicor Kinetic Design is a set of new user experience guidelines and patterns for building applications for Epicor solutions. Delivering unified colors, typography and icons, user interface (UI) elements, and page layouts, Epicor Kinetic Design empowers partners to deliver value-added solutions consistent with Epicor usability best practices and interaction guidelines to enhance customer experience.

Epicor Kinetic Framework embodies Epicor Kinetic Design principles and lives as a website accessible by approved Epicor partners and customers. They have access to sample code and tutorials, a UI component code library, API documentation, and actual code, all with web native and responsive design—working seamlessly on desktop, tablet, or mobile.

Epicor Kinetic application is any application that is coded to Kinetic Design standards. Customers can catch live demonstrations of how to build basic Kinetic applications that integrate with APIs for the Epicor ERP and Epicor Prophet 21® enterprise resource planning (ERP) suites and also explore the transformative value of connected, emerging technologies in the Experience Zone at Insights 2018.
