Grupo Industrial Monclova Selects Epicor ERP

Industrial Consortium in Northern Mexico to Implement Epicor ERP to Achieve Greater Efficiency and Support Future Growth

DUBLIN, CA and MONTERREY, MEXICO--(Marketwired - Sep 19, 2013) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Grupo Industrial Monclova (GIMSA), an important industrial consortium in northern Mexico, has selected the next-generation Epicor enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution to streamline business processes for greater operational effectiveness.

Founded in the city of Monclova, Coahuila over 60 years ago, GIMSA has expanded its operations in 12 states, in addition to competing in the global market for the metalworking industry. The group produces, sells and supports a wide variety of industrial structures such as offshore drilling and production platforms. The group is one of the main employers in the region, and also works in partnership with world leaders in the manufacture and export of rail cars, in addition to having a strong presence in exploration services and natural gas extraction, mining, among other sectors.

Demonstrating a long history of success, GIMSA identified that its organizational requirement to achieve maximum performance demanded a more comprehensive technology platform. The group initiated a research and evaluation process of software solutions to decide whether to continue using their current ERP and other business applications, or to choose to invest in a better alternative.

After analyzing and comparing the benefits of Epicor ERP versus GIMSA's current solution, the group decided that the former could add more value to the organization. Epicor demonstrations showed that Epicor ERP was flexible and could be adjusted to best suit their needs given the functionality of product, data consolidation and project management, among other features. Epicor showed extensive knowledge of the group's needs and how the solution would address them, in addition to industry experience and the ease of use of the Epicor ERP solution -- all key factors giving Epicor the edge over competing vendors.

Today, GIMSA has four divisions: industrial, mining, energy and trade. The group wants to achieve the highest process efficiency to support continued business growth. Implementing Epicor ERP is important to GIMSA because it will provide the business tools the group requires today and as it faces future challenges.

"Epicor is aware that manufacturers are under constant pressure to reduce costs and increase profitability while remaining competitive," said Gunther Barajas, regional sales director for Epicor. "We are looking forward to working with GIMSA as they leverage Epicor ERP to meet the challenges facing the manufacturing industry and inspire business success today, and as they expand their use of next-generation technology in the future."
