Business software solution provider Epicor Software Corporation and CPA and consulting firm Plante Moran announced a strategic alliance to deliver the next-generation enterprise resource planning solution to the Top 15 firm’s growing manufacturing client base.

Southfield, Mich.-based Plante Moran, with an independent team of ERP systems advisors and implementation specialists, recently joined the Epicor Inspired Partner Network to serve Epicor ERP customers.

"Our relationship with Plante Moran reflects our emphasis on growing a vibrant, highly capable, broad-based partner ecosystem that creates choice for Epicor customers," stated Matt Bauer, Epicor’s director of channel sales, ERP Americas. "Plante Moran's technology consulting team is uniquely positioned to help organizations select and implement enterprise systems like Epicor ERP that support innovation and transform business and processes."

As part of the Epicor Inspired Partner Network, Plant Moran will provide manufacturing clients with scalable business management solutions and consult with Epicor on industries including aerospace and defense, industrial, and life sciences manufacturers.

"Our ERP implementation service has been very successful for several years, but many of our clients wanted us to expand our services around additional ERP solutions," stated Doug Hockenbrocht, partner, management consulting, for Plante Moran.

Plante Moran also hired John Lumpkin, who will be based out of the firm’s Chicago office, to lead the new team providing Epicor services. Lumpkin’s background includes specialization in providing enterprise software and information technology consulting services, including Epicor consulting. Prior to joining the firm, Lumpkin led a $2.2 million, 18-month, multisite Epicor ERP implementation and served as the Epicor ERP leader, providing IT consulting services in manufacturing and distribution.
