Epicor Wraps Up Popular Contest for Professional-Grade Innova Scan Tools
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today concluded its popular sweepstakes for automotive service providers using Epicor Integrated Service Estimator™ (ISE) software by naming the final two winners of professional-grade Innova scan tools. Patrick Hilt of Grismer Tire & Auto Service, Fairborn, Ohio, and James Dykes of Express Oil Change & Tire Engineers, Columbus, Ga., were the 11th and 12th winners in the sweepstakes, which generated thousands of entries over a six-month period.
“We would like to thank everyone who helped to make this program a success simply by continuing to use the Epicor ISE solution daily to source replacement parts and complete professional-looking estimates for their customers,” said Stephen Gannon, senior director, automotive, product management and product development, Epicor. “Every automotive service provider that uses ISE software has the potential to improve operational efficiency, generate more sales, and explore higher-margin service categories already is a winner.”
During the program, Epicor ISE software users earned one free entry automatically every time they created and completed an order through the innovative, web-based mechanical service estimating solution. Two winners were named each month, receiving either an Innova 5160 CarScan PRO tool (First-Place Prize) or an Innova 5100 CarScan ABS/SRS tool (Second-Place Prize).

The Epicor ISE solution is powered by the Epicor industry-leading replacement parts database, as well as popular repair and maintenance packages, an aftermarket flat-rate labor guide, OEM-recommended vehicle service intervals information, a VIN decoder, cross-reference parts database, and more.
