Mustek Selects Epicor ERP to Support Ongoing Business Growth in South Africa
South African ICT Supplier to Bring Efficiencies and Improved Collaboration across the Business
Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry specific software to promote business growth, announced today that Mustek Limited, has chosen the next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP, to support its growth goals in South Africa. The solution will be implemented by epic ERP, an experienced local Epicor partner, to replace the company’s operational systems across the Group, enable advanced mobility, cloud adoption, and improve the integration of information and productivity.
Mustek is a South Africa-based assembler and distributor of personal computers and complementary ICT products, servicing a wide range of technology and end-user needs across the country. Its goal is to become the local ICT supplier of choice through the delivery of configuration and customisation, competitive pricing, as well as tried and trusted industry best practices.
A desire for stronger ownership of systems and the ability to rapidly adapt to ever changing market needs, led Mustek to re-evaluate its current ERP solution. The company looked at how the system should work with its current business model, while supporting and adapting alongside its growth strategy to introduce new processes and technologies seamlessly, as required. The business identified gaps in usability and functionality requirements—specifically project management, mobility, and cloud enablement—that led to a competitive search for a modern ERP solution, supported by epic ERP, a value-added reseller for Epicor ERP in sub-Saharan Africa.
“Our existing ERP solution was custom-built for Mustek’s business, but the continued advancement in standard functionality that is embedded within a modern system architecture such as Epicor ERP, made us re-consider our desire to continue this investment into what was not core business. We needed an ERP solution that would deliver strong supply chain support, with project management and mobility functionality, alongside the ability to automate processes. We also wanted ease of reporting and an increased understanding and integration of information between departments and branches,” said Olga-Lee Levey, CFO of Mustek Limited.
Levey continued, “When it came to comparing Epicor ERP with the competition it really stood out for offering the best product functionality, low cost of ownership with strong domestic support available in South Africa, as well as specific industry expertise. We are confident that Epicor and epic ERP will prove to be real assets to Mustek as we continue to grow.”
Stuart Scanlon, managing director of epic ERP, said, “From working closely with Mustek, it was immediately clear that Epicor ERP could provide benefits to its business. We have enjoyed a strong relationship with Mustek up to this point, and look forward to helping the company reach its goal of becoming the preferred ICT supplier of choice in the region. It’s always satisfying to see a business grow with the help of Epicor ERP.”
Sabby Gill, executive vice president for Epicor International, continued, “With the partnership between Epicor and epic ERP we have been able to bring some great benefits to organisations in sub-Saharan Africa. By working collaboratively with Mustek we will be able to deliver tangible results to improve the company’s operational processes and support their growth strategy. We look forward to continuing to develop our strong relationship with epic ERP and to further support Mustek’s continued growth and success.”
