Epicor Tallies Two New ERP Deals with Kibsons International and Hana International

Food Importer and Agricultural Equipment Manufacturer Choose Epicor ERP to Boost Warehouse Management, Distribution and Customer Relations

DUBLIN, CA and DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - May 20, 2013) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail, and services organizations, today announced that it has won two new contracts in the UAE with Kibsons International and Hana International to deploy its next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution, Epicor ERP. Kibsons is a fresh fruits and vegetables importer with a processed meat factory in Ajman, while Hana is a global supplier of diesel engine and agricultural tractor parts. The implementations at both companies will be performed by Epicor Channel Partner, Knowledge Web Consultancy.

Kibsons International will implement the warehouse management system (WMS), distribution, finance and payroll modules of Epicor ERP across two key locations. The company chose Epicor over other potential vendors for its integrated solutions, compatibility with handheld devices, advanced technology, and user-friendly, out-of-the-box features.

"We work in an industry where time and quality are of the essence, and we wanted a solution that would support our challenging operations," said Husainy Sharbat, finance manager for Kibsons International. "After investigating the best in the market we were drawn to Epicor ERP because of its smooth integration, compatibility with handheld applications, and its ease of use. We expect to see gains in terms of integration, customer and supplier extensions, controls and reporting as a result of our decision to go with Epicor"

Hana International chose Epicor ERP for its low total cost of ownership, quick return on investment, usability and integration. The company will adopt the system's distribution, customer relationship management and integrated finance modules.

"The low cost of ownership and swift return on investment offered by Epicor ERP were compelling arguments that ultimately convinced us to choose this solution," said Majid Sheikh, chairman for Hana International. "Operation-wise, Epicor will boost our reporting abilities and the integration of our resource management capabilities, two benefits that will prove crucial to the running of our international marketing and distribution centre in the Jebel Ali Free Zone."

"The selection of Epicor ERP by Kibsons International and Hana International is testament to the solutions flexibility and multi-industry capabilities," said Ian Walker, senior vice president, sales for Epicor in EMEA. "We expect the UAE to remain a key adopter of our solutions, which offer ease of use, scalability, high productivity and accessibility anywhere through the use of Web 2.0 concepts that facilitate genuine collaboration and dynamic enterprise functionality. Given today's challenging market, enterprises benefit from solutions that inspire productivity and enable them to focus on growing their business."
