Epicor® Builds on Long History of Success in Germany With First Epicor 9 Customer

German Subsidiary of Global Pipe Manufacturer Amiantit to Implement Epicor's Next-Generation ERP

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - December 16, 2009) - Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions to the midmarket and Global 1000 companies, today announced that Amiantit, an international manufacturer and distributor of pipes systems and pipes technologies, has selected the Epicor 9 next-generation enterprise resource planning (ERP) system for its German distribution subsidiary Jos. Hansen & Soehne. Building on Epicor's long history of success in Germany, this is the first Epicor 9 customer in the country.

Headquartered in Saudi Arabia and Dusseldorf, the Amiantit Group has been using Epicor's ERP solutions for the past 10 years and the company has plans to implement Epicor 9 in other subsidiaries as well after a successful pilot project in Germany. The European part of the Group uses Epicor ERP in nine countries including Germany, Poland, France, Spain, Romania, Norway, Turkey, South Africa, and Argentina. Amiantit opted for Epicor 9 because of this successful long term partnership.

"We look back on the relationship with Epicor as a trust-based one which developed over the past 10 years," said Hartmut Ludwig, vice president for Amiantit. "We appreciate the professionalism of the company, as well as, the ability to customize the Epicor ERP system to suit the needs of each business branch. With Epicor 9, our subsidiary Jos. Hansen & Soehne in Hamburg is implementing a solution that offers high additional value, especially with the integrated business process management module."

Another key reason for choosing Epicor 9 was the fact that in addition to its service-oriented architecture (SOA) it also includes business process management (BPM) tools, which support manufacturing processes by enabling administrators to define and customize their own processes according to project concepts.

"Epicor 9 is perfectly suited for global commerce, and Amiantit is the latest example of the momentum we are seeing for the solution worldwide," said Epicor Chairman, President and CEO George Klaus. "Epicor 9 continues to expand our market opportunity, and we are winning business in countries for which we previously could not have competed. We look forward to assisting more companies like Amiantit with the move to Epicor 9 in the future."
