EPIC is a "Hole in One"
EPIC is supplier/wholesaler independent and is a team player on your side. It's a valuable business tool to leverage your profitability, purchasing power, and knowledge. Knowledge is power and if you are smarter and more informed than your supply house, they won't be able to push you around and/or pass whatever pricing they want to you.
Many suppliers are honest and take good care of their customers. However, even the best make mistakes that lead to diminished profit on your jobs. If you find yourself ordering materials you aren't as familiar with, it often pays to double check the items in EPIC to ensure you are getting a competitive price.
