AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - September 29, 2016) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, today congratulated Kyle Rehner, ERP system administrator for Kroll International, on being named a Constellation Research 2016 SuperNova Awards finalist in the "Technology Optimization and Innovation" category. Constellation SuperNova Awards celebrate the leaders and teams who successfully apply emerging and disruptive technologies for their organizations.
Kroll International is a leading wholesale supplier of law enforcement, military tactical, public safety, homeland security, first-responder firearms, and shooting sports equipment. For more than three decades, the company has specialized in the stock of more than 100,000 products from 160 world-class brands for convenient shipping to dealers worldwide. Known as "the law enforcement wholesaler," Kroll enjoys an enviable position in a market that is fiercely competitive and which has razor-thin margins.
To support its growing business and maximize warehouse operational efficiency, Rehner and his team have leveraged the Epicor Prophet 21 ERP solution to streamline processes including receiving, picking, inventory operations, cycle counting, and adjustments. And Kroll's placement of products in the warehouse continues to become more intelligent aided by the Wireless Warehouse Management System, which directs employees where to place high-movement items for maximum efficiency and maps pick routes for commonly picked items.
Since going live on Epicor Prophet 21 in June 2013, Kroll has doubled its revenues. Average daily volume of shipped orders has increased by over 21% since implementation, inventory turns have improved by 1 day on average, and overall warehouse productivity has improved by nearly 17%.
"Epicor congratulates Kyle and Kroll International on being named a SuperNova Award finalist," said Celia Fleischaker, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Epicor Software. "Kroll's investment in key technologies to support its digital transformation strategy has revolutionized many of its day-to-day operating processes leading to greater efficiency and profitability."
"The finalists of the 2016 SuperNova Awards demonstrate a deep understanding of the elements required for digital transformation," said R "Ray" Wang, chairman and founder at Constellation Research. "These innovators take risks, overcome obstacles, and defeat myopia for the purpose of furthering disruptive technology. I know the SuperNova Award finalists will inspire other technology leaders to implement new technologies and transform their organizations."
