What our customers say

“[EPIC] increases transparency of the technical capabilities of partners to be registered. This helps us in the decisions we make on the resources we allocate and the approaches we have to implement, e.g. an XML partner requires XML-testing. These clarity and visibility aspects [of connectivity information], with the ease of registration process, through EPIC, will bring in advantages to all stakeholders involved.”
