Ellis Home and Garden Strengthens Business With Epicor Eagle

Expanding Home Decor and Gardening Company to Enrich Inventory Management and Long-Term Retail Growth Strategy

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2014) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Ellis Home and Garden, a family-owned home decor and garden center, has selected Epicor Eagle lawn and garden retail management software to optimize inventory management, boost repeat business and support long-term business growth.

Ellis Home and Garden has served Louisiana and Texas communities for more than 30 years. With five retail locations, two seasonal retail sites, an online store, and impressive greenhouse operations, the company exceeds over 800 transactions per day. Ellis Home and Garden outgrew their proprietary retail software system and manual business management processes -- selecting Epicor Eagle after an extensive review process of three other software vendors.

"We chose Epicor Eagle to help us conduct better business practices and it will offer tremendous savings for the company -- time, payroll, and inventory," said Derek Ellis, regional manager for Ellis Home and Garden. "Prior to implementing Epicor, we were using Excel spreadsheets to track our inventory and we had a difficult time anticipating sales of our seasonal products. When a business doesn't have a system in place that lends to operational improvements and efficiency, it really misses out on a lot of beneficial information. The more information accessible to a business, the quicker it can react. Epicor Eagle is that powerful business tool we were missing."

Ellis Home and Garden is a business centered on customers. As the company expands, maintaining that customer-centric value is an important asset. "Before customers walk in the door or shop our online store we want to anticipate their needs," continued Ellis. "Epicor Eagle gives us the information we require in an accessible format. It will help us serve customers through an enhanced loyalty program, which in turn will increase repeat business -- giving us more financial control and growing our bottom line."

"Ellis Home and Garden prides itself on having top-notch customer service and a unique product selection," said Doug Smith, senior product manager, retail distribution solutions for Epicor. "We are pleased to be the business partner that helps respond to these initiatives, while leading them into the future and supporting business goals aligned with the requirements of their expanding retail operation."

Epicor Eagle lawn and garden retail management software assists independent lawn and garden businesses in managing all parts of their operations -- through point of sale, inventory management, financials, purchasing, payroll and marketing. The Epicor solution provides owners and managers of lawn and garden businesses with the tools to cut costs, improve productivity and better serve their customers.
