Epicor® Showcases High Tech/High Touch Innovations Shaping the Future of Retail at NRF 2011

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) - Epicor Software Corporation (NASDAQ: EPIC), a leading provider of enterprise business software solutions to the midmarket and Global 1000 companies, today announced it will be showcasing a number of new technology innovations at the 2011 National Retail Federation's 100th Annual Convention and Expo -- Retail's Big Show. The Expo will take place Jan. 10-11 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

This year marks the convention's 100th year. Back when it all began, the cash register -- a relatively new invention -- was spreading into nearly every retail establishment across America. This year at NRF, Epicor will showcase a number of offerings that leverage new and emerging technology to effectively manage every aspect of business -- from product sourcing and merchandising, to customer loyalty and cross-channel sales transactions, and every step in between.

Epicor will be showcasing solutions that help retailers leverage new channels and new devices to support a rich, experiential brand experience supporting customer engagement and cross-channel initiatives, enabling NRF attendees to experience the future of retailing -- going beyond merely serving customers, to truly inspire them. These offerings demonstrate how far the business of retail technology has come in the past 100 years, and where it's going.

  • Comprehensive Retail Functionality in the Palm of Your Hand: Epicor will be demonstrating the power and functionality of its full suite of retail applications on the Apple® iPad® device. Via an iPad device and a small BlueTooth® barcode scanner, Epicor will demonstrate how retailers can use these devices to place orders, process sales transactions, and support other retail applications such as Enterprise Selling and Customer Relationship Management. The company will also show how retailers can benefit from real-time information delivery to guide better, faster decision making via Epicor Retail Business Intelligence optimized to run on Apple iPad and Apple® iPhone® devices.
  • The Next Evolution of Mobile Marketing: Epicor also will feature a live demonstration of text messaging innovation, showing new innovative and strategic ways retailers can leverage text messaging functionality to augment cross-channel efforts and provide significant competitive advantage. Through its Epicor Retail Mobile Marketing solution, Epicor enables retailers to create mobile messaging campaigns that instill personal connections with customers, and encourage them to interact with the store environment and online, helping drive brand and customer loyalty as well as revenues.
