Carrier West Selects Epicor to Advance Its Business to the Next Level

HVAC Distributor to Implement Epicor Prophet 21 ERP to Increase Efficiency and Streamline Business Processes

DUBLIN, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 5, 2013) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Carrier West of Denver, Colorado, has selected Epicor Prophet 21 enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to increase business efficiency and streamline processes for overall performance. Carrier West will join many of the most successful HVAC distributors in North America that use an Epicor ERP system to improve warehouse, order and inventory management; purchasing automation; financial management; and reporting and business intelligence analysis.

With four locations in Colorado and 110 employees, Carrier West has been providing HVAC equipment for the residential and commercial markets in Colorado and Wyoming since 1991.

Having observed Epicor working with other Carrier distributors, Carrier West representatives decided to participate in the 2012 Epicor Insights Users Conference, attended by more than 1,500 fellow distributors from multiple industry segments. According to Roger Lee, CFO of Carrier West, "We came out of the meeting with an understanding of how Epicor is focused on distribution with investment dollars, technology, and a vision for the future of the industry. We decided to introduce our management team to Epicor and their software solutions. After several days of evaluations, it became obvious that Epicor provided us with the best alternative to not only operate our company today, but could become our technology partner of the future."

Carrier West users will benefit from a fully integrated solution that incorporates a Microsoft Windows®-based platform and SQL Server® database offering in-depth data analytic tools for ease of retrieving information, and built-in Customer Relationship Management (CRM) capabilities to drive additional revenue. In addition, the Epicor ICE Business Architecture will give Carrier West the ability to mobilize its staff and make them more proactive regarding customer needs.

"Carrier West is a good example of what we can do for Carrier group members," said Malcolm Fox, vice president, product marketing for Epicor. "The Epicor Prophet 21 ERP solution includes many tools to make Carrier distributors more productive, including their own custom design of screens and fields, and in-depth system alerts and workflows, as well as the ability to streamline their front counter sales. And we will deliver lean business consulting to help them drive waste and errors out of their day-to-day processes."
