Farecla Products Ltd Selects Epicor(R) to Support Business Growth

Multiple Site Implementation to Improve Efficiency and Replace All Systems
IRVINE, CA and LONDON--(Marketwire - 03/16/11) - Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ:EPIC - News), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions for the midmarket and divisions of Global 1000 companies, today announced that Farécla Products Ltd, an internationally recognised manufacturer and supplier to the automotive refinishing trade since 1950, has selected the Epicor 9 next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution as part of a business transformation project to support the company's growth and current turnover of £15m GBP.

Farécla Products has five sites globally and is headquartered in the UK. The company is bucking the trend of the global economy, consistently achieving double-digit annual revenue growth, but it has now reached a point where its current systems could hold it back from future growth, rather than enable it.

"We use separate systems to manage areas such as finance, CRM, stock planning, inventory and export control," said Jeff Kipling, finance director at Farécla. "We've seen consistent growth for many years and have simply grown out of the systems we currently use. We needed a new solution that would allow our staff to be more efficient and focus on adding value, rather than spending a disproportionate amount of time keying and re-keying data. By giving our staff the right systems and processes we believe we can achieve greater growth."

Epicor will allow Farécla to manage all of its business processes and data from a single solution, which includes a product inventory consisting of thousands of lines. Currently, data often needs to be entered in several systems separately, and some processes such as forecasting are managed completely offline. Additional functional benefits include the seamless integration with the Microsoft® Office suite and the manufacturing resource planning (MRP) module to enable scenario-based forecasting and production management.

Farécla reviewed ten different ERP solutions before choosing Epicor. Key selection criteria included the impressive out of the box functionality, high level of adaptability without product customisation, intuitive look and feel, and simplicity of operation.

"We have great confidence in the Epicor consultants we are working with from Aspera, and the excellent references we received for live Epicor customers," added Kipling. "Epicor provided the most balanced solution offering for our needs."

"We are very pleased to be selected with Epicor by Farécla, a global leader in re-finishing products," commented Lonan Byrne, managing director of Aspera Solutions. "We look forward to helping them achieve their immediate systems objectives and extract real business value from their investment with Epicor over the long-term."

"At a time when businesses are continuing to fight their way out of the tough economic climate, those looking to grow are turning to efficiency savings to enable staff to be more productive and cut costs," said James Norwood, senior vice president, worldwide product marketing for Epicor. "Using the right technology can have a dramatic effect on these key areas, enabling a business to explore new revenue opportunities."
