RheinBrucke, Epicor to launch cloud ERP solution

DUBAI, May 1, 2019

Leading IT consultancy firm RheinBrücke has joined hands with Epicor Software, a global provider of industry specific enterprise software, to introduce the Epicor ERP in the RheinBrucke ME cloud to the Middle East market. 
The new offering enables businesses to innovate, reduce costs, and boost operational efficiencies, said a statement from RheinBrucke. 
The solution offers several advantages, such as lower capital requirements to access innovation, scalability, shorter deployment times for better returns on investment, reduced infrastructure costs, trimmed operating expenses, and world-class security, it added.
"This partnership between Epicor and RheinBrucke will open new opportunities for growth, especially in this region that is ripe for digital transformation and keen to stay ahead of the curve in today’s digital age," said Rheinbrucke Middle East Chairman Mohamed Hassan Al Noman while speaking at the launch event.
It was also attended by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Faisal Bin Khalid al Qassimi, Jamal Saif Al Jarwan, Secretary-General of the UAE International Investors Council, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Saqr Al Nuaimi, Undersecretary for Support Services at the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation and other dignitaries across the region. 
"Across the world, we are witnessing the adoption of cloud computing as an enabler of new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, big data analytics, and the Internet of Things," stated Al Noman. 
"We are excited to launch a new cloud-based ERP offering with Epicor, a leading software provider with a proven track record, over 20,000 global customers and 70 products that span the entire value chain," he added. 
RheinBrücke and Epicor also signed an agreement to offer products for Ajman Chamber of Commerce and its members.
Vetri Selvan, the managing partner and CEO of RheinBrücke, said: "Partnering with Epicor was a strategic decision as this alliance means both parties can achieve more not just in the immediate term, but looking ahead. We look forward to supporting businesses in the Middle East in their digitisation journeys, so that they remain competitive and agile in today’s competitive global landscape."
The latest forecast by Gartner projects IT spending in the EMEA region to total $973 billion  in 2019, an increase of two per cent on the estimated spending of $954 billion in 2018, as more organisations experiment with new technologies in a bid to spur innovation and revolutionise the customer experience. 
In the GCC region, the UAE is the most active adopter of cloud computing. Research firm IDC predicts spending on public cloud services in the country will almost quadruple over the next four years, surging from Dh439 million in 2017 to Dh1.51 billion in 2022.
Andy Coussins, SVP and Head of International Sales at Epicor, said: "All industries today need digital solutions to remain relevant and drive growth. We are delighted to support RheinBrücke as it launches Epicor ERP in the RheinBrücke ME Cloud."
"This partnership further extends our Cloud offering for the Middle East and helps support the UAE’s transition towards a knowledge-based economy in line with the UAE Vision 2021," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
