Epicor Formalizes Collaboration With Ho Chi Minh City Open University

Epicor Next-Generation ERP Will Form Part of Students' Curriculum Providing Learning Based on Real-Life Business Environment

DUBLIN, CA and HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2013) -  Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, announced its collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) Open University during an official signing ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City.

As part of the collaboration, Epicor will provide its next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) to the University and train various faculty lecturers in its application and functionality. These lecturers will in turn teach and train students in their respective faculties. Students from finance-banking, business administration and accounting-auditing will have hands-on experience in the ERP modules which include financial, manufacturing and distribution. Epicor will also run training and seminars for the University.

"We are pleased to partner with Epicor in its pioneering support to the tertiary education sector in Vietnam," said Mr Le Bao Lam, Headmaster of HCMC Open University. "Epicor ERP software will allow students to gain practical knowledge from available virtual business models and apply it to real-life situations. HCMC Open University hopes to close the gap between theoretical study and practical experience for our students. We believe this will better equip them for their careers upon graduation."

Epicor takes a long-term view in its partnership with the University and its commitment to continue its business development in Vietnam and the rest of Asia Pacific.

"This collaboration demonstrates our strategic commitment to growth in Vietnam," said Craig Charlton, senior vice president and general manager for Epicor Asia Pacific. "Our innovative next-generation ERP software solution will no doubt help manufacturers in Vietnam grow swiftly as they scale their business operations with ready trained talents. Partnering a leading educational institution here is the best way forward to popularize our award winning ERP solution."
