IT Reseller Pros Software Forms ERP-Division, epic ERP, to Meet Market Demand for Manufacturing-Specific ERP Solutions


Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today it has signed epic ERP as a new value-added reseller in South Africa. epic ERP is the only Epicor reseller within sub-Saharan Africa to specialise in manufacturing.


epic ERP is an ICT company owned by South African Pros Software, along with three industry veterans. The division was formed to meet market demands for strong expertise in delivering enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions.


The company is backed by a team of 33 professionals, and aims to innovate and add value to customers by offering three service areas: ERP solution advisory, full life cycle ERP implementations, and custom development.


Selecting any new business software solution or making modifications to existing applications is a big consideration. The ERP advisory division is headed up by an industry veteran, and the team uses an evaluation methodology that has been developed over 20 years of hands-on practical experience.


epic ERP aims to help customers interpret their business needs and map that against the right solutions.


epic ERP has the ability to understand all facets of its customers’ business, based on many years of experience in successfully delivering operational solutions in South Africa and the international markets that its customers grow into. The team offers professional implementations that are aligned to well-understood business objectives and practices.


Finally, the team offers custom development solutions, with much experience in this field primarily through the use of Microsoft architecture and technology. With Epicor ERP being built on a services-oriented architecture that has been fully optimised for Microsoft Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server, this allows epic ERP to deliver world-class enhancements using the Epicor ERP development framework.


“We have worked with Epicor for many years, so we know that we are working with a safe and trusted investment partner. Having evaluated and monitored many ERP vendors over time, we are certain that Epicor’s strategy, history of innovation, and Microsoft-led products provide a compelling offering for any organisation in the industry,” commented Danéel van Eck, managing director of Pros Software.


epic ERP also cited the partner ethos within the Epicor community as a key reason for building the division around the strengths of the Epicor solutions.


“We are delighted to be delivering innovative, ground-breaking solutions such as Epicor ERP to companies which can achieve their growth goals through its agility and deep industry understanding,” added Stuart Scanlon, founder of epic ERP. “We know we will be able to offer multinational organisations ERP solutions on a truly global scale, but at a fraction of the cost and effort.”
