The following information will walk you through the setup process of connecting your Shopmonkey account with Epicor, and will explain how parts can be searched for and ordered directly from Shopmonkey. You will need to license Epicor for use with Shopmonkey, and will receive from them a username and password after obtaining a license. Please reach out to the Epicor representative listed below, and they can help get your account setup process started:

The field "Username" is the account username.
The field "Password" is the account password.
Once you have entered your information, click Connect to complete the integration. You are now ready to start procuring parts within the context of your Shopmonkey estimates.
Procuring Parts for an Estimate
When viewing the details of a given estimate, you will see the Parts Procurement tab as an option. Click on this tab, and then click Go to Epicor to start the part ordering process:
Under the Parts tab, use the search bar or the pre-set categories to find the desired parts:
Once you've found the desired part, click the checkbox to the far left of the part, and then click Add to Quote to add the part to your quote and continue shopping. If you will not be purchasing any additional parts, click Add & Return to Quote:
From your quote, click on Finalize at the bottom of the quote to exit Epicor and be taken back to your Parts Procurement tab, with your parts now included:
Please note that you will not be able to edit your quote once you click Finalize. If you click Save & Exit, you can to leave the quote as a draft, but this will not pass the parts back to Shopmonkey.
Ready to place order
Once your parts are added to your Parts Procurement tab, click Check Availability to confirm that the parts are still available, and Place Order when ready to purchase.
Note that the submitted parts are by default associated with the first service on the estimate.
