Enterprise Update: Epicor

The importance of having the right enterprise resource planning (ERP) system for your company couldn’t be clearer. While these systems are highly advanced, they need talented technology experts and projects solutions to support their ever-changing needs, implementations, or upgrades. Today, we will focus on Epicor hiring trends and how the contract workforce has increased over the past year.

Planet Technology has seen more clients taking on contractors to help with their Epicor implementation and upgrade needs. They are doing so for a few reasons: contractors offer flexibility when it comes to hiring, contractors reduce overhead costs, and while most companies want candidates to return to the office, it is still a candidate-driven market and most candidates want to work remotely. Many clients are filling this gap by utilizing contracts so they can take their time finding the right permanent candidate that will meet their office needs and culture.

Key Findings In Epicor Include:

Top seven Epicor job titles placed over the past year were:

  • Epicor Developer
  • Prophet 21 Resource
  • Epicor Financial Resource
  • Epicor Operations Resource
  • Epicor Business Analyst
  • ERP Managers
  • Epicor System Administrator

A quick survey of our network revealed some insight into what preferred deployment options for ERP systems prefer. Cloud-based options were ranked number one (52%), followed by Hybrid (31%), and then on-premises (17%).

While the majority of placements were permanent over the past year (51%), we have seen contract placements increase (49%).

95% of Epicor placements were remote and 5% were in-office.

A quick survey of our network revealed some insight into what is swaying candidates’ decisions when considering a new job: The top 5 were compensation, working remotely, growth potential, company culture, and having a flexible schedule.

More candidates are focusing on maintaining a healthy work-life balance, company culture, and on mental health after the pandemic. Companies must foster an environment where employees feel empowered to set boundaries to help them attract top talent in the Epicor space.
