        Office Business Application Extends Reach and
              Value of Epicor Enterprise Solutions
Situation:
To expand the value of its line-of-business (LOB) applications, Epicor Software
Corporation sought to increase the reach of its applications to more workers and
provide access to its applications within the context their daily business activities.
Solution:
To accomplish this, Epicor developed Epicor Information Worker (IW), an Office
Business Application (OBA) that delivers critical business data from Epicor
applications on the Microsoft® Office system.
                                         “The Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) 2005 was the
                                         key to developing this OBA. VSTO is the best integrated
                                         and most consistent environment available and is what
                                         made it possible for us to develop functionality that we
                                         would never have even attempted before. It is also what
                                         enabled us to build this solution in just three months.”
                                         Bart Elia, Product Software Architect, Epicor
                                         “Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for our
                                         customers to use the information captured within Epicor
                                         applications...whenever and wherever they need it.”
