Epicor ERP's ESC Service


Have you ever heard of Epicor Service Connect (ESC) service?  I'm hoping I can use this service to connect Epicor ERP to my new website.  I haven't decide which ecommerce platform to use but I see you support Shopify, Bigcommerce, WooCommerce and Magento.  Epicor ERP can already be connected to Magento using their Epicor Commerce Connect (ECC) module but I don't want to use Magento.  Instead, I will probably go with something easier like WooCommerce, Shopify or Bigcommerce.

Here's some information about ESC if you haven't heard about it before:

Epicor Service Connect Epicor Service Connect (ESC) is a services orchestration toolkit designed and optimized for handling complex interactions between Epicor ERP 10 and other systems. ESC is architected around the notion of channels that accept and emit data using various means (e.g., email, message queues, file drop locations, or Web services). When a channel receives a message, Epicor Service Connect invokes a workflow designed by an administrator that can transform the data, call ERP 10 service operations, and optionally return data via another channel. Epicor Business Process Management (BPM) directives can also invoke ESC workflows.

Do you know if I can use ESC to integrate Epicor ERP with my website?
