Epicor is a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software designed to promote business growth. MechanicNet is a leading provider of customer relationship management (CRM) and retention solutions for motor vehicle service businesses and their clients.

"Service providers represent the auto care industry’s ultimate connection with millions of consumers and businesses that rely on our products and services, and it is absolutely vital that we help these businesses continue to grow," says Scott Thompson, senior vice president of automotive and business services for Epicor. "MechanicNet is already playing an impressive role in supporting the growth of thousands of businesses across the U.S. and Canada. We are confident that with our ability to innovate and invest, we can make MechanicNet solutions even more valuable and compelling for service providers and their customers."

Epicor says its solutions are used each day in more than 100,000 automotive business locations across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The company’s PartExpert database of replacement parts, tires, labor and other information is embedded in many of the industry’s most popular shop management platforms. The company also:
