Epicor clinches two new UAE deals
Dubai, May 20, 2013
Epicor Software Corporation, said it has won two new contracts in the UAE with Kibsons International and Hana International to deploy its next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution.
Kibsons is a fresh fruits and vegetables importer with a processed meat factory in Ajman, while Hana is a global supplier of diesel engine and agricultural tractor parts.
The implementations at both companies will be performed by Epicor channel partner Knowledge Web Consultancy, said a statement from Epicor.
Kibsons will implement the warehouse management system (WMS), distribution, finance and payroll modules of Epicor ERP across two key locations.
“We work in an industry where time and quality are of the essence, and we wanted a solution that would support our challenging operations,” said Husainy Sharbat, finance manager for Kibsons International.
“After investigating the best in the market we were drawn to Epicor ERP because of its smooth integration, compatibility with handheld applications, and its ease of use. We expect to see gains in terms of integration, customer and supplier extensions, controls and reporting as a result of our decision to go with Epicor,” he noted.
Hana chose Epicor ERP for its low total cost of ownership, quick return on investment, usability and integration. The company will adopt the system’s distribution, customer relationship management and integrated finance modules.
“The low cost of ownership and swift return on investment offered by Epicor ERP were compelling arguments that ultimately convinced us to choose this solution,” said Majid Sheikh, chairman for Hana International.
“Operation-wise, Epicor will boost our reporting abilities and the integration of our resource management capabilities, two benefits that will prove crucial to the running of our international marketing and distribution centre in the Jebel Ali Free Zone,” noted Sheikh.
